DENVER, Sept. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Institute of Management Sciences (AIMS) and the AIMS Research Foundation are announcing a program designed to substantially reduce the cost of quality graduate-level business education.
The new program, called 4-4-8, is designed to accelerate the opportunity to acquire and start implementing new business knowledge. For $40 dollars an individual can earn up to 8 portfolio credits they can transfer into the William Howard Taft University (WHTU) (http://www.taft.edu) MBA program. This is done by studying free AIMS study guides and passing a low-cost certificate exam.
The WHTU MBA program accepts up to 4 AIMS exams for up to 8 graduate credits; this is almost 25% of the entire MBA curriculum.
This puts the entire cost of the WHTU MBA at less than $3,300.
"The driving principle around here is that higher education should not be priced as a luxury item," noted Dr. D. E. Lady, founder of the American Institute of Management Sciences and the AIMS Research Foundation. "Let's stop thinking of ourselves and charging high amounts for education; let's instead start creating an environment where we can compete again globally, with an educated work force, in an open market, where knowledge is not withheld in the long run to try and make a buck today."
More information is available at http://www.masteraims.org, including videos, information, and access to the free study guides and instructions for using them.
WHTU is accredited by the US-based Distance Education and Training Council and recognized by the US Department of Education and Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). AIMS is a Colorado-based not-for-profit organization focused on improving management skills through research and training.
