About the AIM Program

Information management is everyone's business in an organization. It affects how well you communicate with clients, how secure data is, and whether your organization meets its goals.

The AIM Program curriculum provided mid-career professionals with skills and expertise that could be used immediately in the workplace. Our curriculum focused on:

  • information management
  • information design
  • business management
  • applied research

AIM graduate students were full-time professionals and part-time students. AIM was an interdisciplinary degree through the UO Graduate School.


The University of Oregon is regionally accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. In addition to UO's regional accreditation, the State of Oregon is also a member of the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education.

The AIM Program’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusiveness

The University of Oregon has an institutional commitment to diversity and multiculturalism and actively supports this goal. This commitment is affirmed in the words of the UO Mission Statement: "We value our diversity and seek to foster equity and inclusion in a welcoming, safe, and respectful community." The AIM Program likewise respects the rights of everyone in our community—students, alumni, faculty, staff, and other partners—and promotes inclusive practices that value diversity, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, national origin and citizenship, gender identity and expression, religious affiliation and background, sexual orientation, gender identity, economic class and status, political affiliation and belief, and ability and disability.
