To me, knowledge acquisition is primary to any education arrangement such as school, training sessions, symposium etc, whereas certificate acquisition is highly secondary.
Studying at AIU was an opportunity of a lifetime. All through my undergraduate program, I have always yearned that students be given an opportunity to prove their capabilities on the basis of how knowledgeable they are about a particular subject matter through research rather than through examination scores which in my conviction is not the true test of knowledge.
AIU as an educational institution has made this dream a reality. At AIU, I had the rare privilege of learning some basic interesting concepts in my field of study which ordinarily a traditional university curriculum would not have accommodated.
To say that my experience at AIU was that which satisfied an inner quest for knowledge acquisition for positive impact is to say it all.
