SAIM for Success


“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit”- Aristotle.

South Asian Institute of Management

Respecting these sagacious words, SAIM continuously works in all aspects of its students to make excellence their habit, not just a one-time act. When good-natured students come to SAIM, we nurture them so that when they complete their few years' journeys at SAIM and go further in their careers, they are admired for their intelligence, personalities, attitude, competencies, work ethics and soft skills. SAIM tries to bring out the best in its students through the best possible teaching resources, practical exposures, and experiential learning such as case studies, role-playing, internships, lecture series, and practical exposures so that they can face the market as a corporate athlete with both technical expertise and emotional intelligence. 

The amenable learning culture at SAIM enhances the amicable relationship among faculty and students so that SAIM can bring the best out of them and live up to our tagline, SAIM for SUCCESS. At SAIM, we work on students' competencies, abilities and capabilities to pave their path towards success. Thus, by providing a holistic learning environment, taking care of the confidence in their eyes, genuine smiles on their faces, and humbleness in their nature, SAIM promise to provide the potential candidates who are visionaries, critical decision-makers, change agents and above all and responsible human beings. 

Since its establishment in 2005, SAIM has aspired to be an academic institution where we nurture our students to excel in all aspects of life. SAIM has been consistently ranked among the Top Business school in Kathmandu for management education. Under Pokhara University's affiliation, SAIM currently offers programs under Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Masters of Business Administration in Global Business (MBA-Global Business). The friendly and open learning environment supported by an experienced pool of faculty members enhances the learning at SAIM. The aim is to help students develop their abilities and competencies to succeed.
