Webber International University
Webber International University is a private, not-for-profit, independent university offering degrees at the associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s levels exclusively in the areas of business.
Webber International University is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACSCOC) and our programs are accredited... by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE).
We have been recognized by the Princeton Review as one of “America’s Best Value Colleges” and a “Best in the Southeast” school.
Established in 1927 as one of the first business schools for women in the nation, Webber now hosts men and women from over 50 different nations. We are an independent, not-for-profit, SACSCOC accredited university. Students at the Florida campus pursue associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees exclusively in the area of business.
Established in 1896 as Flora Macdonald College, St. Andrews University (a branch of Webber International University, formerly known as St. Andrews Presbyterian College) joined the Webber International University family during the summer of 2011. A traditional Liberal Arts university, students at St. Andrews major in a wide variety of fields.
Each Webber campus is a traditional residential campus and features a wide array of extra-curricular activities. While most of our students are traditional undergraduates who attend classes in person all day, play their sport all afternoon, and retire to our dorms for the evening, we also offer accelerated adult completion (nights and weekends), evening MBA, and completely on-line degrees.
We are a teaching university. Consequently, we measure our success one student at a time. We have liberal admissions. Many of our students are first-in-family to go to college. Nearly all receive some sort of financial aid.
We are a results oriented organization which expects people to meet their goals and understands that this requires hard work. However, we are a collegial, friendly workplace. We have an open door policy. We know each other. We know our students.
Consistent with the values we strive to inculcate in the leaders of tomorrow, Webber is an equal opportunity employer.
