How do you build the skills to excel in your career? At JWU’s Charlotte Campus, you learn by doing — that’s what sets us our university education apart.
JWU has been a recognized career education leader since 1914, thanks to our unique academic approach that combines hands-on work experience, practical skills and community service.
Hands-on learning starts in the classroom, where you’ll learn about your field from faculty experts who share industry expertise and serve as mentors. And you’ll have the opportunity to apply what you’ve learned to real-world projects and internships in Charlotte’s booming financial, pro sports and tourism sector.
