Flexible, part‐time MBA programs help professionals go to school at a more manageable pace
Chicago (April 15, 2009) – Research shows advanced‐degree holders can earn more than 30 percent more than those with a bachelor’s degree and nearly 63 percent more than high school graduates. For prospective advanced‐degree students concerned that their already busy schedules will conflict with classes and homework, American InterContinental University (AIU) has launched online Master’s degree programs in business administration that students can tailor to their lifestyle.
The part‐time MBA programs incorporate all the flexibility of AIU’s traditional online programs, allowing students to attend classes and study based on their own schedules. Coursework, lectures and support materials are available any time. While AIU‘s online instructors always strive for interaction during class, with students in time zones scattered across the globe, it’s not always possible. To meet the need of students who cannot always attend classes in real time, video sessions, chat conversations and support materials are archived and accessible around the clock, giving students the flexibility and accessibility to learn as time permits. AIU also offers students an accelerated path towards earning their degrees.
The university offers online MBA programs in the following concentrations:
“Our MBA programs offer a great option for students seeking a flexible program at a manageable pace,” said Dr. Greg Washington, provost and chief academic officer of American InterContinental University. “We listened to our students, many of whom are very busy with jobs, families, and the business of living a life, and developed a program to meet their needs.”
AIU’s innovative MBA programs provide a market-driven education that integrates theory, practice and team-oriented learning relevant to today’s needs in business and industry. They are designed to help prepare students to pursue advanced career opportunities and compete in increasingly global markets.
American InterContinental University, established in Lucerne, Switzerland in 1970, awards Associate, Bachelor’s, and Master’s degrees in a wide variety of disciplines. The AIU network of campuses includes: AIU Buckhead (Atlanta, GA); AIU Dunwoody (Atlanta, GA); AIU South Florida (Weston, FL); AIU Los Angeles (CA), AIU Houston (TX), AIU London (England); and AIU Online (based in suburban Chicago, IL).
