Catalog 2014-2015


At Western International University (West), we’ve been teaching working adults — people with jobs, families, and other responsibilities — for more than 35 years. West was born in response to a huge, unmet need in the United States: quality post-secondary education for adults. Though we began as a campus-based university in Phoenix, Arizona, over the years, we've evolved our model to keep pace with the economy, changing technology and student expectations, making it more manageable for today's student.  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.

As part of our mission, we are committed to preparing students for leadership positions in a dynamic, global marketplace that is shrinking and simultaneously becoming more complex. We emphasize global awareness in both our general education and program-specific courses and we emphasize leadership skills, as we believe the world will look very different for our students when they graduate.  

Further, as our nation faces new challenges around higher education, we’ve re-engineered our offerings and improved our course delivery method, making it more manageable for you to fit it into your busy life, and also more affordable.  At West, we are continuously evolving education to meet the needs of students so more people can achieve their educational goals and help advance their careers.
