Becoming a Doctorate degree holder has been my lifelong desire and AIU came at a
time when I was looking for a school that will fit into my life style and guarantee me a
flexible study time table.
I started my program in February 2020 having completed all the enrolment requirement
for the Ph.D. program and my experience so far has been very thrilling.
The phase 1 was more of general courses and introduced me to communication and
investigation, experimental learning and organizational theory as mandatory courses.
The other optional courses studied were academic evaluation, fundamental of
knowledge, development of graduate study, philosophy of education and professional
evaluation. These courses exposed me to a new paradigm in learning and prepared
me for the andragogy way of studying. I had good support from my tutors and advisors
all through the process.
The phase 2 experience was awesome as I was able to create my own curriculum to
cover my core courses. The courses covered were business policy and strategy, cost
accounting, credits management, financial management, financial planning and
control, introduction to accounting and financial statement, invest management and
research methodology. In as much as these courses are not completely new to me, I
was able to explore new areas and wrote interesting articles on the courses.
The phase 3 covered basically the thesis proposal and the final thesis. This activity took
me time as I spent over a year researching to produce something unique. AIU has
made me to recognize my uniqueness as an individual and I made that reflect in my
AIU provided all the necessary resources to make study and research easy and I am
eternally grateful for this life time opportunity.
My growth since I started my study at AIU has been exponential as I have been able to
achieve what I hitherto thought was impossible and I now have self-confidence and
courage to take on difficult task and achieve desired result. Completing this study is an
example of my academic progress and my recent elevation to the position of a Chief
Executive Officer is an indication of my career progress.
I remain eternally grateful to AIU for providing such an experience
