My lifelong passion for Economics finally materialized in 2009 when I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree. Eager to delve deeper desire to broaden my horizons in Economics, I embarked on the journey towards a Master’s program in 2012.

Driven by the passion and ambition to become a Financial Economics specialist and qualified Business Analyst seemed like an impossible task. Traditional Master’s programs required too much time commitment, leaving me hesitant to abandon my job and face the job market again. Thankfully, two years after starting my first job, I met an AIU alumna who raved about her doctoral journey through AIU’s online program. This was my golden ticket – a chance to fuel my academic fire without compromising my professional journey.

Just as I was about to resign myself to unfulfilled aspirations, a familiar dream reappeared! This time, however, it came with a liberating twist: a fully online degree program! Without a second thought, I embraced the chance to learn without the constraints of physical attendance, balancing my education seamlessly with my existing commitments.

REGISTRATION PROCESS: Diving into the program’s details, I meticulously weighed the coursework, structure, and costs of the AIU Master’s in Economics. My diligence was rewarded within days – a call from the admissions team, brimming with excitement, and the incredible news of a 37.5% scholarship. This unexpected support, like a financial windfall, swept away any doubts and fueled my decision. AIU became more than just a program; it became a clear path forward, illuminated by the encouragement of its dedicated team.

FLEXIBLE PAYMENT PLAN: Like a sturdy bridge spanning a gap, the scholarship not only eased the financial strain, it also loosened the financial shackles. What truly floored me, however, was the unexpected lifeline: a flexible payment plan, meticulously crafted to fit my study and personal needs. It felt like discovering a hidden oasis in the parched desert, a gentle breeze alleviating the weight of worry and paving the way for a future where education and well-being could coexist in perfect harmony.

THE ANDRAGOGY SYSTEM: Engaging the andragogy system at AIU wasn’t just studying; it was an exhilarating voyage of self-discovery! I was able to tackle it on my own terms. I chose the learning materials that resonated with me, accessed expert support when needed, and ultimately surprised myself with a deep understanding of the subject. That’s the beauty of this system – it empowers you to learn in a way that’s truly meaningful.” The school’s responsive prompts, unwavering support, and emphasis on learner autonomy (what, when, how, where, and with what) empowered me to conquer academic challenges like never before.

UNDAUNTED COMMUNICATION: AIU’s unwavering communication was my lifeline amidst the challenges of life. Each email, phone call, and online message wasn’t just a reminder of my academic commitment; it was a gentle nudge, a reassuring pat on the back, and a testament to their unwavering belief in my ability to succeed. In a world where deadlines loomed and motivation dwindled, knowing they were invested in my journey made all the difference. It’s the unwavering support from AIU that I owe this degree, a symbol of resilience forged in the fires of perseverance..


Now, with eyes fixed on the summit of a doctoral degree with this prestigious institution, I stand poised to ascend. AIU was not just an academic playground; it was a crucible, forging my intellect and igniting a passion for lifelong learning. This incredible odyssey with AIU etched itself onto my soul, its lessons imprinted with every hurdle overcome. For every challenge weathered, every milestone conquered, this institution stood resolute as my unwavering champion.
