American Intercontinental University London
American InterContinental University (AIU) was founded in Europe in 1970 on the premise that universities should transcend the bounds of the traditional, theoretical approach to education by providing students with a curriculum that prepares them for successful, productive careers. For more than 35 years, AIU has offered this innovative approach to education at its campuses in Atlanta Buckhead, established in 1976; London, established in 1978; and Los Angeles, established in 1982. In 1998, additional campuses were established in Atlanta Dunwoody, and South Florida. AIU Online began in 2001 and was recognized as a separate campus in 2002. In 2003, an additional campus was added in Houston, Texas. In June 2009, the AIU Buckhead and the AIU Dunwoody campuses combined to become AIU Atlanta.
In January 2001, Career Education Corporation (CEC) acquired the University.
AIU is committed to developing curricula that provide students with career preparation in business, criminal justice, design and media arts, education, and information technology. The University’s success in this endeavor is reflected in the employment of its graduates throughout the international business community, the achievements of its alumni, and the commitment of its faculty.
