The college’s admission program, at both the undergraduate and graduate level, relies on a strength-based assessment guided by two key questions:
- Is the applicant ready for the challenges of the program to which he/she is applying?
- And if so, what will this applicant bring to participate to the institution development and influence?

This is your opportunity to value your assets and possibly consider obtaining a scholarship.
The AMI could assess your ablities and potential for success within its structure, while keeping in mind that you are coming to develop some skills.
