"What sets AGU apart from other colleges in the field has been the up-to-the-moment currency of its programs, its intensive and highly personalized service to its students, and the world class expertise of its faculty, as well as its reputation as a private institution with a forty-one year history of excellence.

For employers, AGU's low tuition has proved to be a high-value investment in people, not a line item expense on the corporate P & L Statement. There are some rare investments you can make that never stop providing a steady return, and an AGU education is one of them."
