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 at 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.
Our multi-campus institution of higher learning is focused on helping students acquire industry-current knowledge and skills as they pursue, build and advance their education in many of today's most exciting fields.

American InterContinental University's mission is to provide for the varying educational needs of a culturally diverse and geographically dispersed student body with the goal of preparing students academically, personally, and professionally for successful careers.
American InterContinental University believes it has a special commitment to support each individual's goals. To this end, the university places emphasis on the educational, professional, and personal growth of each student. Programs, policies, and activities, which have been designed to implement this philosophy and purpose statement, are evaluated periodically and changed, as necessary, to meet the needs of the student body and the institution.
AIU, as an international institution of higher education, encourages global understanding by providing an atmosphere of cultural diversity and opportunities for international education.
