EXPERIENCE AT ATLANTIC INTERNATIONAL
It is a very
humbling experience to have gone through the exciting and dynamic program of
the Atlantic International University (AIU). The paradigm shift from pedagogy
to andragogy by AIU including its novel experiential learning has made the
institution the preferred destination vis-à-vis life-long education and human
development for very busy professionals.
enrolled in the institution and downloaded the doctorate degree manual, I was
almost put off by the sheer volume of the document. I painstakingly went
through it and became convinced there and then that I couldn’t have made a better
choice. The doctorate program was actually designed to meet individual needs
and had effectively helped me reach my professional and personal goals. In
today’s dynamics world coupled with my busy schedule, I couldn’t imagine myself
undergoing a full-time program for the doctorate.
the platform by the unique andragogic approach that enabled me work even within
the comfort of my home and office and at my pace. Even when it appeared I was
slacking, my advisors were quick to bring me back to focus through their
constant/regular mails of support and encouragement. They really were down to
earth in guiding and challenging me to reach my goals. They were dependable
partners in my progress.
It is in AIU
that I realized the full implication of a Phd program because of
the multidisciplinary assignments that cut across such diverse fields as
culture, religion, history, philosophy, sociology, psychology, metaphysics, etc
outside my core discipline of Banking and Finance. My academic tutors were real
motivators and exhibited amazing organizational skills throughout the program.
The finance department offered a very flexible and convenient payment plan that
eliminated all stressors.
surely a refreshing new dawn in distance and life-long learning experience. I
am proud to have been part of this success story. I cannot thank the management
and staff of AIU enough for the once-in-a lifetime opportunity offered to me to
reach my educational zenith.
