My experience at Atlantic International University has been informative and a thrilling journey. Informative because the AIU Online Library offers vast accessibility to millions of records including books in electronic formats, published thesis, full text journals, articles and periodicals in diverse languages across the globe. This made studies easy for me and I believe other students and graduates will share similar thoughts. And it has been thrilling because to me, the andragogy learning process is a gizmo that assists the individual to identify his or her strengths and capabilities, limitations, prospects and threats open to him or her in life. Comparatively, each individual is unique in many different ways. Again, as we grow-up, many changes occur especially as we develop to become independent in life and at this turning “personality-formative” stage, it is essential to allow the individual to make his personal choices and merely to be directed. Unfortunately the traditional learning system does not permit the individual to have such freedom to determine and develop his passion and desire. The andragogy learning process has come to solve this deficiency. In my view the andragogy learning process offers the individual the platform to come to understand and appreciate the true meaning of the SWOT Analysis.

Personally, the experience has equipped me to identify myself better in relation to my interest, passion and expectations as an individual. Enrolling with AIU has offered me the opportunity to build my personality in line with my aspirations but not to the aspirations of any other individual. Comparatively, it has placed me at a position to competitively run at par or better with graduates from any other institution globally. For instance, allowing the individual student in designing his own curriculum for a programme of study makes me feel honoured, respected and also accepted to be intelligent in my thinking. I had the opportunity to think through the global economic trend and decided on those courses I deemed relevant to my interest in consideration to the current and foreseeable future global economic tendencies. For my thoughts are valued and accepted by such a high caliber of authority as AIU. I am blessed.

The decision to enroll at AIU was to me a divine direction. When I decided to further on with my studies firstly, I wanted to enroll at one of the traditional institutions in my country, Ghana. The University of Ghana, Lagon was paramount on the list because of proximity in relation to my job Schedule. The reason was that Lagon is situated in the city where I work so that I could have the chance to attend lectures regularly and also on time. Alternatively, upon a second thought, I had wanted to look for institutions that offer weekend tuition. This was to avoid situations where my job performance would be obstructed my studies. However, after weeks of contemplating I decided to compare Online Institutions as well. I therefore commenced a search which led me to the AIU site. Though, there were other online institutions but my choice for AIU was influenced by the timely response I got from advisors both by mail and on phone. The freedom to determine my tuition fee payment plan and to design my own curriculum throughout the programme was additional contributing factor.

Opting for AIU, I have not regretted. The study has equipped me to have a global “flair of thinking” and currently I feel so much fulfilled because my experience at AIU has placed me at equal height and or at a better advantage than graduates from other universities. The andragogy learning system does not only make learning easy but also challenges the individual to identify new methods of thinking in the sphere of his life. In simple terms, the system trains students to think globally.

I have come to the realization that, life is all about making impact on society. Education without impartation is meaningless and the evidence is having adverse crippling effects on many developing and under-developed countries. It’s unfortunate to have an association such as the ‘Unemployed Graduates Association. Many go to school with the aim to be employed but not to employ. My experience is been felt everywhere I find myself. At the Tema West Circuit where I work as the administrator, I have been receiving recommendations from the Minister and Society Steward I work with for my pro-activeness and improved administrative measures I exhibit. Currently, I double both as the secretary and the financial secretary to the “Awisa Kroyε kuo”, an association of citizens from my hometown who are residents in Accra and Tema metropolise. The group organizes seminars and talks annually for the opinion leaders, parents, teachers and pupils of the village to encourage and admonish them on the importance of education. Aside material donations of textbooks, exercise books and school uniforms to individuals, we have presented a set of jerseys to both the Primary and the Junior High Schools. Most parents and some Young people in my church and in my vicinity do approach me for advice on decisions concerning their education.

I have recommended AIU to friends and I will continue to preach the fantastic opportunities AIU is offering to students. Anyone who wishes to identify his personality and to make an impact on society and nation, there is no other place like AIU. For perfect advice and timely response, flexible curriculum design and flexible payments schedule, look no further than Atlantic International University.
If I have obtained a degree today, all credit to AIU.
AIU, I am proud to be a member of this wonderful institution.
