The AIM learning experience is typically organised in four phases:
- Private preparation by the student.
- Group discussion and learning in preparation for assignments and lecture sessions.
- Formal interactive lecture sessions using role-play, presentations, debates and case studies.
- Time for reflection individually and in groups.
The programme equips delegates with the skills necessary for efficient group work. Bearing in mind that such skills are essential to good managers, the GSB provides support processes such as group dynamics lectures and facilitated group sessions.
Learning and tutorial support is an essential part of the learning process and is available as an individual service to students. The support assists students with the skills they need to be successful in an academic environment - e.g. planning, time management, understanding tasks, study and research skills, presentation skills, reading and writing skills.
The attention paid to each individual is one of the key factors that differentiates the AIM from similar qualifications.
