About

The AIU Distance Learning Master of Science in Health Care Administration program will be a custom-made program, designed just for you by you and your academic advisor. This flexibility to meet student needs is seldom found in other distance learning programs. Our online program does not require all students to take the same subjects/courses, use the same books, or learning materials. Instead, the online Masters Program in Health Care Administration curriculum is designed individually by the student and academic advisor. It specifically addresses individual strengths and weaknesses with respect to market opportunities in the student’s major and intended field of work.

Understanding that industry and geographic factors should influence the content of the curriculum instead of a standardized one-fits-all design is the hallmark of AIU’s unique approach to adult education. This philosophy addresses the dynamic and constantly changing environment of working professionals by helping adult students in reaching their professional and personal goals within the scope of the degree program....

This Systems Engineering programme has been developed as a practice-based systems engineering (PBSE) suite of courses where the University presents the theoretical background and participating industry organisations, in which the students are employed, provide opportunities to apply the material on real projects. The systems engineering world, as seen through the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), is moving from document-centric approaches to model-based systems engineering (MBSE). Many international projects are using MBSE and tools are widely available today. MBSE requires a curriculum that prepares a new breed of systems engineers. To develop MBSE skills there is a need to shift the focus from systems engineering processes and management to include a technical component which addresses the “how to” (skill). This programme facilitates this shift.... [-]
