Western International University says
Western International University provides a broad educational foundation, including a focus on business and technology, designed to prepare students for leadership positions in a dynamic, global marketplace.
Western International University was founded in 1978 in Phoenix, Arizona and was accredited by The Higher Learning Commission in 1984. In 1995, West became part of Apollo Group, Inc., one of the leading educational corporations in the United States. In 2010, West became a part of Apollo Global, a consolidated subsidiary of Apollo Group, and joined with sister schools in the United Kingdom, Chile, and Mexico to create a global education network.
The majority of our students are working adults who thrive on the flexibility and convenience of our course schedules and locations. Our students have the opportunity to demonstrate their individual achievements through measures such as quizzes, tests, papers, projects, and presentations, rather than study groups or learning teams.
West faculty includes experienced practitioners who hold advanced degrees in their teaching fields and are highly successful in their areas of professional expertise. While our course schedules are non-traditional in form, we maintain a traditional educational model and teaching style in both our on campus and online degree programs. Our faculty share knowledge through lectures, presentations, class activities, and discussions.
West offers associate, bachelor, and master degree programs, as well as a professional certificate in Accountancy.
