At AIM Business School, postgraduate education has never been more accessible. With a range of online and on-campus (selected number of units) study options available, you can choose what works best for you depending on your location, lifestyle and work situation.
Online learning provides flexibility and convenience, which is great for anyone constrained by time or distance. You can complete your qualification when it suits you and at your own pace.
And studying online doesn’t equate to studying alone. You’ll have access to unit introduction videos, regular webinars and our unique virtual campus, MyABS. This state-of-the-art online learning management system offers a ‘community’ approach to self-directed study where you can share experiences, ideas and questions through integrated features such as chat forums, live chat, and links with social media platforms.
Blend of on-campus and online delivery
If it suits you better you can take a blended learning approach, mixing on-campus and online options to suit your situation at any given time. Classroom education may be more traditional, but the benefits are clear. It offers classroom discussions, networking opportunities, immediate access to facilities and teaching staff, and less need for self-motivation.
Our campuses are conveniently located at major business centres across the country including in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth.
Weekday – day program. Involves 4 full weekday days on a fortnightly basis (NSW and VIC only in 2017 for first 4 Grad Cert units, remainder selected units offered on-campus)
Weekday – evening program. Involves 10 full weekday consecutive evenings (NSW and VIC only in 2017 for first Grad Cert 4 units, remainder selected units offered on-campus)
AIM Business School has easily accessible, centrally located campuses with state-of-the-art facilities in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. Whether you’re studying online or a blend of both on-campus and online, you’ll have access to our campuses when required. Our online study mode is readily accessible through our virtual campus, MyABS.
Delivery Modes and Time Commitment
The AIM Business School offers both online or a blend of on-campus (excluding Graduate Certificate units) and online delivery modes for its postgraduate qualifications. Students can choose either a completely online study mode or the blended learning option which contains a mix of both on-campus and online depending on your location. If you're enrolling directly into the Graduate Certificate, you'll be able to start within the month through monthly intakes. In addition to the formal contact hours, it is recommended that students complete up to 13 hours of self-directed study per week for each unit.
Emphasis is placed on contemporary, relevant and interactive case studies. Participants engage in coursework that is entirely applicable to their work to ensure they receive immediate value from their learning experience.
There are no exams at AIM Business School. Rather, assessment is based on undertaking realistic projects applied to each participant’s own organisational and industry contexts.
Our facilitators are highly qualified and experienced business professionals. They are chosen based on their senior management experience in their area of specialisation, appropriate postgraduate and teaching qualifications and a commitment to keep abreast of developments in their area of specialisation.
