Higher Education

The AIM Business School postgraduate programs provide a challenging, stimulating, and practical ‘nested’ MBA, that allows you to study at your own pace. The knowledge you gain builds on itself, preparing you for a business environment where innovation, sustainability, ethics and challenging financial conditions are already a significant part of doing business.

The facilitators at the Australian Institute of Management in Western Australia (AIM WA) are all highly qualified industry-based professional educators, who place an emphasis on student-centred learning. They use a number of interactive and practical teaching methods that will assist in developing your critical thinking skills, broadening and adding depth to your knowledge, and allowing you to assess and solve real world issues and problems from multiple perspectives.

In the small, interactive classes our students come from a broad range of industries and backgrounds. Applicants are accepted into our program based on their management experience and academic background, ensuring that the learning experience is well-rounded and enhanced with real-life situations.

If you’ve ever considered furthering your education, or building on the knowledge and experience you have gained in your career, come along to one of our regular information sessions. Or book an appointment to discuss the options open to you. An MBA is an eye-opening, fulfilling experience that has the power to transform lives, professionally and personally. If you've ever considered taking the journey - perhaps now is the time.


Study at your own pace

Our programs allow you to build on your knowledge at your own pace, you can choose to start with the Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma and work your way through to the MBA step by step.

Timetables are structured to suit busy professionals; most people who are working full-time, prefer part-time study – however there are options available if you wish to step up the pace.

Time Commitment

We have four terms per year and each term is ten weeks in duration. Sessions are run once a week from 5.30pm to 8.30pm. On occasion some units may be offered on weekends. In addition to the formal contact hours, it is recommended that students complete eight to ten hours of self-directed study per week for each subject.


Delivery Modes

All classes run in a seminar style, facilitating contribution and interaction. During class time participants often work in small teams to explore complex management problems and strategic leadership issues giving opportunities to analyse, question, test and integrate the knowledge, concepts, ideas and assumptions discovered in the subject content.


Facilitators

Our facilitators are highly qualified and experienced and will guide and support you throughout your learning experience.

They are chosen based on the following selection criteria:

  • Where appropriate have held a senior management position for a minimum of 5 years
  • Hold an appropriate post graduate qualification
  • Have a minimum of five years professional experience in the area in which they teach
  • They can demonstrate the effective use of adult learning
  • Show a commitment to keep abreast of development in their area of specialisation.

Assessment
