We understand working adults so well, we built a university just for you.
Western International University® (West) provides a broad educational foundation, including a focus on business and technology, designed to prepare students for leadership positions in a dynamic, global marketplace.
A Global Education for Working Adults
For generations, education has overlooked students like you. It’s time school caught up with the needs and realities of the twenty-first century. West has been teaching working adults — people with jobs, families, and other responsibilities — for more than 35 years. Over the years, we've evolved our model to keep pace with changing technology and student expectations, making it more manageable and affordable for today's student to get a traditional education.
A college degree can help propel your career and life. At West, you can earn a degree in one of these fast-growing fields: Accounting, Business, Information Technology, and Behavioral Science.*
But more importantly, the business world is constantly changing, becoming more culturally diverse and interconnected than ever before. Employees who recognize and understand different business opportunities, cultures and strategies can help a company successfully negotiate diverse situations.
That’s why West integrates a global perspective into our curriculum, so that no matter what topic you study, every course will help you become more globally minded. Our global perspective on curriculum is important. It can give you an edge over other job applicants and could make you more successful in your career.
When you go West, you can be sure you’ve chosen a quality university with a notable reputation. For information about our accreditation, click here.
