University of Phoenix was founded on an innovative idea more than 30 years ago:
make higher education highly accessible for working students.
Still guided by this idea, University of Phoenix has helped transform the landscape
of higher education in widely recognized ways.
University of Phoenix pioneered many of the conveniences that students now take
for granted. Evening classes, flexible schedules, open enrollment, a student-centered
environment, teachers with relevant experience, online classes, an online library,
eBooks and computer simulations are all hallmarks of the university's features.
An Innovative Approach
Not surprisingly, the university's approach has helped it grow from humble origins
as an upstart institution serving the unrecognized needs of working students. Today,
University of Phoenix is the largest private accredited university in North America,
with more than 200 convenient locations, as well as Internet delivery in most countries
around the world.
University of Phoenix features a variety of degree programs at the associate's,
bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels. Fields such as business, technology, health
