Who Are AIM Students?

What do AIM students and alumni say about the program?

The AIM Program expanded the scope of my career by building business and customer context around my core technical skill set. This new, holistic view revealed what was actually valuable to the business (hint: it's not just having the most blinky lights) and taught me how to demonstrate the strategic value of technology investments to the C-suite.
—Travis Luckey, 2009 graduate
I was looking for an advanced degree program that would meet all my needs: a focused blend of management, business, and technology, a flexible schedule, and instructors who have real-world experience in their specific areas. Nothing came close until I discovered the AIM Program.

Having the AIM degree led to my career move into my organization’s business intelligence division where I help shape and support the development of analytical solutions for the organization.
—Julie Rhodes, 2015 graduate

More praise for the AIM Program.

The AIM Program is the best investment I made to influence my career potential and personal growth. Throughout the program I was able to apply coursework to the workplace, often introducing new ideas, concepts, or directional shifts on various projects. I found the material in each course relevant and the instructors are subject matter experts and extremely professional. Additionally, completing the master of science degree gave me that career push I was looking for and shortly after graduation I received a big promotion at work.
—Jake Agard, 2015 graduate
The instructor was, hands down, the most professional, courteous and respectful of the many quality professors I have encountered in my academic career.
—Casey Foltz, 2014 graduate
For those students with no design or art background, it provides a great glimpse into the world of graphic and information design without being too strict about the concepts and discussions.
—Dan Koperski, 2014 graduate

How can AIM boost your career?

In a 2015 survey, AIM alumni reported that 69% of them received a promotion during or after completing the program.
