American InterContinental University (AIU)

American InterContinental University is a four decades old Institute of higher education accredited in Europe by the British Accreditation Council and holds membership in the North Central Association. In the US, the Higher Learning Commission, the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs, the Council for Interior Design, the Independent Education Commission of Florida, the Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission of Georgia, and the Educational School Board of Illinois uphold its teaching ability through their accrediting support.

Founded in 1970, the originally European university was quick to grow from its London based campus to include locations in the United States, with campuses in Atlanta GA, Houston TX, and South Florida. The education center now even has an on line facility for virtual training in Chicago IL, which was launched by Career Education Corporation as a stand alone entity in 2001, which shortly thereafter acquired the university in 2002.

With full associate, bachelor, and master’s degree programs in place, AIU offers a complete university education. Its degree options are centralized around professional career opportunities in the fields of business, criminal justice, education, IT, and design, thus keeping it up to date with today’s employment needs. AIU proves its common sense approach to professional needs as well as its promise of academic high standards through its educational tenets and practice by adhering to both a multi-disciplinary and purpose driven philosophy as well as an adherence to an Institute wide statement of integrity and commitment.

American InterContinental University is firmly founded on the principals of meeting the needs of a culturally and geographically diverse student body by providing them with the scholastic, personal, and professional tools that they need to enter a successful career upon graduation. With a special emphasis on integrity and honesty, AIU goes well beyond the basic needs of intellectual training and sees these traits as essential to the success of students in their chosen future occupations.

AIU’s degree offerings are all highly specialized, making sure that the academic fields of interest correspond with applicable and focused career options. All American InterContinental degree programs cater to a specific field of interest and to best serve the needs of those who are already in the workplace, even offer both full-time and part-time study options, as exemplified in their criminal justice program. To further keep up with today’s needs, they also offer one of the best on line educational opportunities available, fully accredited and approved for government and private financial aid programs. This allows those who live far from a campus location or have special scheduling needs to obtain their education without impeding their current career or personal needs, while reducing out of pocket expenses wherever possible. There is even special consideration and attention given to those who have left the armed forces, helping them to make a successful transition to the competitive civilian workforce.

This state of the art approach to education has made this International university a force to be reckoned with in the field of distance education. It was voted “Best of the Best” in the category of education and academia for the 2009 Computerworld Honors Program, and AIU has continued to expand its services and further improve its program availability to maintain this hegemony ever since.

If you are looking for a university education without border or scheduling restrictions, and do not wish to compromise academic achievement in the process, then American InterContinental University would be a wise place to start your search. With full financial aid availability and full degree accreditation up to the Master’s degree level, it offers the best that a campus based school can offer, with the additional options and availability that can only be found combined with a virtual, distance learning environment.
