For over 30 years now, AIB has built a unique position in the provision of academic programs in the business and management fields, and I am pleased to play a part as Chairman of the Academic Board which has this responsibility.
One of the primary roles of an Academic Board is to foster excellence in teaching, learning, scholarship and research. It is a role that we take very seriously here at AIB, and one that determines the nature of the oversight given to the AIB programmes and academic activities.
AIB has quite a special position in the private higher education sector. With its distinctive culture, it provides a clear student-centred environment in which to explore existing knowledge of business, and gain new learning at the leading edges of business development.
AIB provides the opportunity to reflect on personal experience, and to analyse that individual experience against the experience of others written into the scholarly knowledge base of literature, as well as the practices seen in business case studies.
AIB is an organisation committed to the promotion of further understanding of what business leadership is, and what the sustainable development of business enterprise means, as well as pursuing the development of the skills to practice effective performance in these fields. Its individualised attention, and approach to online learning, offers just the right environment for busy practitioners to share their insights, ask questions and consolidate their reading.
The Academic Board is committed to addressing the overall quality of the programmes offered on an on-going basis, so that you can be assured that you are receiving qualifications of the highest standard to lead you and your business into the future.
