Earn Your Master's Degree Online
Information management is no longer the responsibility of just computer analysts or IT managers. Anyone who manages people, technologies, products, or services can benefit from the multidisciplinary AIM curriculum.
The AIM Program curriculum provides mid-career professionals with skills and expertise that can be applied immediately in the workplace.
AIM–For a Higher Performing Career
The AIM curriculum is available fully online through the UO course management system (Blackboard Learn).
Students have the unique opportunity to write a formal research paper in the AIM Capstone. The paper enables students to integrate information learned throughout the program of study with specific interests at work.
Other program highlights include:
- The time to complete the AIM master's degree is approximately two-and-a-half to three years.
- A modular curriculum structure that enables students to work full-time while completing the 54 credits as a part-time student.
- Core courses provide 44 of the 54 credits required for the degree and are delivered online, each running seven weeks.
- Courses are taken consecutively, not concurrently, and all courses begin on a Monday and end on a Friday.
- Short courses provide 10 of the 54 credits required for the degree. Short courses are delivered online, each running four weeks.
- Core courses, with the exception of the AIM Capstone and Virtual Learning and Teams courses, must be taken for letter grades (A, B, C, D, F).
- The program offers short courses on a pass/no pass basis only.
- Students must maintain a 3.0 (B) average throughout the program.
- Asynchronous online courses are offered through the UO course management system. Courses are not self-paced; they provide students with useful learning structures and regular participation guidelines.
