With a vision to enhance individuals' and institutions' potential, the Ace Institute of Management was founded in 1999 AD under Pokhara University. Since its inception, Ace has established itself as a leading educational institution with a strong vision and mission to improve the capacity of students and institutions in Nepal to participate in the development of the country. Most people consider Ace Institute of Management to be their top choice for a management degree.

Ace has two umbrella institutions:

  • Ace Institute of Management

  • Ace Institute of Management:

Established in 1999, Ace Institute of Management is one of Nepal’s top management colleges, offering graduate and undergraduate programs affiliated with Pokhara University, Nepal. It was the Ace Institute of Management that introduced the first executive MBA program in Nepal in 1999.

As one of the leading providers of management education in Nepal, Ace Institute of Management fosters an environment that nurtures growth and evolution into self-regulated, life-long learners, thoughtful, responsible individuals, and principled, innovative leaders who improve their society and the world at large.

Ace Institute of Management values those who are honest in their assignments and positive towards life. Only then will you see the pleasure of learning and use it for the good of people, and there is no doubt you can grab the success you dreamed of before you realize it. It encourages them to take responsibility for what they do and accept the mistakes they made while learning, and instead of regretting them, they assist them to learn from them and never make such blunders again. The precept of respect for others has given each individual a chance to earn respect for themselves. They are taught in such a way that they understand everything they learn and leave no doubt about any subject matter. Compared to them, the faculty members are equally enthusiastic about teaching as students are about learning. It's quite interesting that neither they get tired of questioning the things they do not know nor does the teacher get bored of answering them. Here, each individual is given the ability to lead their fate rather than be led by fate. So if you want to lead your destiny, be sure that it is the right platform for you. If you are a hard worker and have targets to fulfill, or if you are still in a dilemma, Ace Institute heartily welcomes each individual and promises to help them in their journey to discover their destined aim and aid them in getting it fulfilled.
