I wish to provide you with some feedback regarding my MBA+ journey with AIM, as I don’t feel the survey that comes my way after the completion of most units allows for an accurate reflection.

On balance, my journey has been an enjoyable one and it has complimented my existing knowledge. However, my last two units, including Human Resource Management with Kath Milne require special mention. The way in which Kath approach the transfer of knowledge, and more importantly, the journey of critical thinking is a credit to them. My personal gains from this unit has been exceptional and I am thankful for having her as my facilitator.

Thanks Kath … the two days have gone so quickly!  I definitely took away lots of new learnings and a whole bunch of reminders and refreshers, complimented by your experience and the experience of the rest of the participants. Will enjoy applying it all back in the workplace
