Formerly known as the American College in London, AIU – London was established in 1973. The University is situated in the heart of Central London, between Oxford Street and Regent’s Park. Our excellent location allows students to benefit from the city’s great centers of business and finance.
AIU – London’s MBA program began in 1995 and has been developed and adapted to meet the needs of today’s global market place. Students benefit from a team-based learning environment, which enables us to deliver the MBA in less than one year of intensive study. The international flavor of the University enhances the classroom experience providing students with a global perspective. The MBA is accredited regionally in the U.S. through SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools). The library and learning resource center houses specialized books, journals, periodicals, CD-ROMs and electronic databases. The library is open 7 days a week during term time. Students also have access to over 150 IBM compatible computers with Internet and e-mail.
About the course
The AIU – London MBA in International Business has a theory-based and practical curriculum, which assures an academic experience that is contemporary, challenging, globally oriented, and professionally focused. Field trips, guest speakers from industry, and special presentations enrich the course of study. Our MBA is a 12-course, 60 credit-hour program that can be completed in as few as four academic terms of full-time study. This means that a committed student can complete the MBA in under a year. Students who apply for the Program without a bachelor’s degree (or its equivalent) in a business related major may be required to complete a Foundation Class in Quantitative Business Methods prior to being admitted onto the full MBA program.
The Program consists of seven Common Core classes and five Advanced Electives. The first six Common Core classes provide a comprehensive exposure to the functional areas of business. The seventh Common Core class, Strategic Management and Policy, is the program’s capstone course and is normally taken during the last term of the Program. Students can apply for an internship (assisted by AIU – London) which, upon successful completion, will count as one of the elective options.
