| AIU is a wonderful school. The professors are available to assist you while you are in school and after graduation. If you have questions about new trends they are readily available to assist you. |
AIU provided use with the skills necessary to do our work and quickly assimilate any new tasks which would be given to us in the work place. The school gave us independence and critical thinking which are very necessary in our field. We are able to solve problems not because we memorized and regurgitated information as in other colleges and universities, but because we are able to critically view a problem and analyze it to find the best possible solution. This is a necessary skill in today’s world and market.
Everyone knows how to read and memorize yet have original ideas and apply them to our everyday life not only work is exceptional. I attended the Ft. Lauderdale campus of AIU and I an honestly say the faculty there are exceptional.... among the best. They are very well trained and provide depth of knowledge and skills that we all benefited from in one way or another. All the skills I learned at AIU I have used in my job, from financial analysis for IT professionals, project management, web design, facilitator, to database design and modeling.
Thank you to the AIU faculty of Ft. Lauderdale. You guys are the best.

| I went to AIU Online, so I can't speak first-hand about any of the on-campus schools. I had a very positive experience at AIU. The business curriculum was up-to-date and geared for those who are currently working full-time. Not to sound too corny, but you can really apply what you learn in class at your job the very next day. Also, practically all of the instructors were friendly and approachable. Anytime I had a question, the instructor email me back within 24 hours.|
As for the administration, I only had one problem. The school failed to inform the VA (veterans affairs) that I was enrolled, and this caused a delay in me receiving my educational benefits. However, when I explained the situation to the school, they deferred my tuition (without any sort of hidden fees) and informed the VA that they made a mistake and that I was indeed enrolled. The end result was that I received three months of educational benefits at the same time, and from that I paid the school. Other than this little SNAFU, I found that the administration to be friendly, knowledgeable, and proactive in solving customer problems.
One potential drawback to AIU Online is that there is no graduation ceremony--at least a real one. Let me explain, because AIU online has grown so much, it is infeasible for them to have all of the online graduates walk with the on-campus classes. So, the school had the idea that they would do a virtual graduation ceremony. Although it was a nice gesture, it was a poor substitute for the real thing. For me, getting the degree was more important than the ceremony. But for those who desire a real graduation ceremony, this will present a major disappointment. To sum it up, I thought AIU to be a perfect fit. Since I have graduated, I have found that I am more employable and have moved on to a better position in the government agency that I work for.
