Meet the Faculty

The AIM Program faculty are as multidisciplinary as the master's degree curriculum they teach. Many of them serve as instructors at other institutions of higher education. A majority of these professionals work as information management leaders in the private and public sectors or as heads of their own companies.

Our instructors are passionate about educating a dynamic group of graduate students who apply their education immediately in their professions.
