We realize that by welcoming, sharing and celebrating our differences–in culture, language and values–we are able to better achieve AUM’s mission of providing quality and diverse educational opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students.

Why AUM?

Completing a degree from any U.S. university can be challenging, so how is AUM different?

Excellent Academics

With over 90 degree programs, AUM ranks among the top universities in the Southeastern U.S. by U.S. News and World Report. In addition to detailed academics, we prioritize practical learning from faculty members who have hands-on experience in their field. In the College of Business, for example, students learn from faculty members who were former managers of Fortune 500 companies, renowned economists, certified public accountants, researchers, and software developers. Students can also gain real-world experience by participating in internships at area companies.

We offer many services, such as assisting you with your application, visa process, helping arrange transportation from the Montgomery Airport, helping you locate your residence hall, locating your academic advisor, and many other valuable services.
