SCHAUMBURG, Ill. -- April 9, 2013

American InterContinental University (AIU), an established provider of both
campus based and online business degrees, has been named to the first edition
of the Best for Vets: Business Schools list in Military Times Edge Magazine’s
2013 “Best for Vets” edition.

“AIU has long been dedicated to delivering a quality graduate business program
that meets the needs of today’s veterans,” said Ivan Hernandez, manager of
military relations at AIU. “We focus on offering tailored military student
services along with a quality education that will help veterans succeed in
their pursuit of a business degree and we are honored to have this dedication
recognized by Military Times Edge Magazine.”

Military Times Edge magazine is an independent source of news and information
for the military community. More than 100 graduate business programs which
responded to the survey were evaluated on numerous criteria identified by the
publication as factors which student veterans value most when selecting a
business program, including:

  *Acceptance of American Council on Education (ACE) credit: AIU follows the
    ACE Guide to The Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed
    Services to evaluate military training and experience for academic credit.
    AIU is also a member of the Service members Opportunity College (SOC)
    Consortium. The university’s team of Prior Learning Assessment
    professionals evaluates college credit earned at other schools as well as
    from CLEP, DSST, Advanced Placement (AP) exams or specific training and
    MOS experience for possible transfer credit towards degree completion at
    AIU.
  *Accreditation: AIU business administration degrees are recognized by the
    Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). AIU is
    regionally accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and a member of
    the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCACS).
  *Yellow Ribbon Participation: Indicating whether a school is participating
    in the Veterans Affairs (VA) Department’s Yellow Ribbon program during the
    2012-13 school year. In this program, a school and the VA contribute equal
    amounts to make up the difference between a college’s tuition and the
    Post-9/11 GI Bill’s nationwide cap. AIU participates in Yellow Ribbon at
    both its ground campuses and online programs.
  *Dedicated Military & Veteran’s Staff: AIU has a dedicated Military
    Relations Team that provides proactive outreach to military installations
    around the country with the goal of discovering which key attributes
    service members are looking for when pursuing a business degree online, at
    a ground campus setting or in a blended program. To better serve and
    assist military students, all AIU faculty and staff that work with
    military students receive special awareness training in the unique aspects
    of military service that may need to be considered while assisting service
    members to complete a degree.

“In addition to the criteria used to name AIU to the Best for Vets: Business
Schools list, we are proud of our additional offerings that set AIU apart from
other college business programs,” said Hernandez. “Our award-winning Virtual
Campus and My Unique Student Experience (MUSE) system allow students to
experience their course content in a way that suits their individual learning
style best, whether that is auditory, visual or kinesthetic.”

Inclusion on the Military Times Edge "Best for Vets" list is among the many
acknowledgements AIU has received for supporting military students. From 2009
to 2013, AIU has been recognized as a top military-friendly school by G.I.
Jobs Magazine and also from 2007-2013 by Military Advanced Education Magazine.
