Today’s IT managers need effective leadership and management skills to deal with the challenge of global competition and a changing workforce. To address this growing need, AIM and its business members have collaborated to create the annual Advanced Tech Leaders Academy. The goal of the academy is to enhance leadership skills that are essential for current and upcoming tech managers.

The Advanced Tech Leaders academy schedule has been set for the 2023/2024 cohort. This program will have sessions from October 2023 through May 2024.
