Graduate Students


One simple word that means everything.

It represents what you can do in a career.

It represents what you can do to your earning potential.

We rise to the occasion, to the challenge, to the expectation.

We rise as a society when we continue to build on knowledge.

We rise as individuals when we become transformed by wisdom.

graduate and degrees


Let us not forget: Everything is a competition. Students compete for jobs after graduation and AUM competes with other schools to offer the most qualified professors, the best possible instruction, the most intimate learning environments, the most respected name and the best value in the area. And we are winning.

AUM has been recognized by multiple organizations and publications concerned with quality and substance. In 2011, U.S. News & World Report named AUM as a “Best Business School,” citing seven different areas in which we excel, while also naming our School of Education as a “Best Education School,” citing five different areas in which we excel. Likewise, four years in a row The Princeton Review named us as a “Best Business School.” There have been other awards and recognitions; however, we believe that what our students learn to apply as professionals is much more important. That’s the factor that makes our service the most valuable to you, and to the world. This is where you can expand your skills, improve your credentials and increase your earning potential.

Welcome to Auburn Montgomery Graduate Studies.
