The Australian Institute of Management Sciences (AIMS) was initiated in 2003 as a Division of the Australian Institute of Music (AIM). The program was headed by Professor Greg Whateley who was also Director of The Calvo Institute (TCI). AIMS managed an undergraduate programme – Bachelor of Music (Arts Management)-and a suite of post graduate offerings – a Graduate Certificate in Arts Management, a Graduate Diploma of Arts Management and a Master of Arts Management. AIMS developed a number of links throughout Australia and Asia. At the end of 2004 the Australian Institute of Music was in part sold and the new management group decided to close both the Calvo Institute and AIMS. All Arts Management programs were embedded in the AIM superstructure as a Department (Department of Arts Management) under the direction of Professor Paul Saintilan. In 2008 a partnership was formed between AIM and the Sydney Opera House (SOH) to run a joint initiative-Master of Arts Management-on site at the SOH. The program currently is managed by both Professor Paul Saintilan (now based in Geneva) and Consulting Professor Greg Whateley
