For its ability to directly respond to the challenges of the MBA market in Asia in an innovative way through its student-centered curricular programs and instructional delivery systems and effectively sustaining it, the Ateneo Graduate School of Business received from the 2011 CMO Asia Best Business Schools Awards an international recognition for INNOVATION LEADERSHIP held at Suntec Convention Center in Singapore last July 22. The award in the form of a trophy and a certificate were received by Dr. Cesar Mansibang, APS registrar from the president and officers of the CMO organization.
CMO Asia, an organization of marketing practitioners in Asia organized the annual awards for various categories and chose from more than a hundred nominated business schools in the Asia-Pacific region those who displayed institutional and individual excellence in innovation, leadership, curriculum development, industry interface, and faculty achievements.
Institutional awards were given for the best schools that encouraged innovation leading to better development, best schools that encouraged leadership as part of the curriculum, best schools with the best academic input, and best schools with excellent industry interface.
Individual professors from various business schools who excelled in their fields in general management, human resource, marketing, finance, operations, information technology, and entrepreneurship were also cited and awarded trophies and certificates of recognition. Last year, Professor Frank Roa was one of the awardees for best professor in Marketing.
AGSB is the only Philippine business school that figured in the awards specifically in the innovation leadership category and is one among five Asian business schools that received the award.
The best business school annual awards were sponsored by CMO Asia based in India, Hindustan Unilever Limited, Stars Group, World Education Congress, and the Asian Confederation of Business.
