In today's rapidly changing business climate, the ability to manage people and resources well and to make smart business decisions quickly are needed skills! Earning the AIM designation can increase your confidence as you manage direct reports, as well as increase your credibility with those in senior level positions. The AIM program includes human resource management, analysis of current business issues, and general management principles and practices.


This program is designed for people with middle or upper-level management experience who have planning, organizing, controlling, decision-making, or administrative responsibilities.
