INTRODUCTION
Founded in 1996, Auston Institute of Management (formerly known as Auston Institute of Management & Technology) has since established itself as a leading private education provider in Singapore for undergraduate and postgraduate education. Establishing an ambition toward quality education, we are committed to providing our students with the highest level of education and service. Our faculty and staff are dedicated, highly qualified professionals committed to offering students personal service and attention. Students at Auston Institute of Management are encouraged to undertake challenges; to think and question on a critical and analytical level; to develop a momentum for life-long learning; and to use the knowledge attained to fulfill their aspirations. Situated in the business hub of Singapore, our city campus offers students a higher education experience that is rigorous, effective, personalized and rich in cultural diversity. Our wide ranges of undergraduate and postgraduate programs are designed to meet the needs of students, employers, and the local & international community. Auston Institute of Management caters to the educational needs of individuals who aspire to equip themselves for a better future.

Our Vision

Our Values
Integrity = Trust and Responsibility Creativity in our approach Dedication to our Students Success In November 2011, Auston expanded its campus provision from a simple shop house near Boat Quay to a 12,000 sq ft space along Mohammed Sultan Road. Flanked by the corporate environment of United Engineers Square and the River Piazza to the rear, Austons location is hard to beat. Students now benefit for computer labs, break out discussion areas, study rooms, libraries and more. Students who wish to engage in sports and other activities are able to do so through the Student Councils Arrangement and the Student Welfare Officer.

ACCREDITATION AND AWARDS


In line with our objective to be a provider of quality education, Auston Institute of Management constantly invests in the enhancement of our education and key service processes and infrastructure. Since 2007, Auston has been securing good reviews from ISO 9001-2001 Quality System audits. We also achieve positive quality audits from Coventry University during the three external examination boards each year. The Singapore Quality Class award is only given to the top 50 schools in Singapore. In October 2009, Austons award was renewed for a further 4 years till 2014. In September 2010, Auston successfully achieved the EduTrust Provisional award. This award was achieved in just 6 months after the new Private Education Act was passed in Parliament. Our effort to ensure the quality of student learning experience will continue as a cornerstone of the new managements philosophy.

ACADEMIC ADVISORY COMMITTEE


As a private education provider, Auston Institute of Management recognised the importance of offering reliable and quality programmes and courses to students, including those programs of Coventry University. An Academic Advisory Committee was set up in July 2005.
