Making JWU Better for You
You learn by doing, applying skills in real-world settings — we’ve known this since 1914, when we first pioneered our hands-on education.

And we stay ahead of the rest, constantly improving our university, refining our programs, anticipating industry changes and making JWU a learning laboratory for students and faculty who are passionate about their careers and industry.

Unique Educational Model
Our educational approach is designed to help you identify your career field. You can develop a structured plan, starting your first term, to build industry knowledge, professional skills and practical work experience to excel.

Build a toolkit that serves you for life. Our unique education model integrates academics and professional skills, including real-world projects in our hands-on labs, taught by our industry-expert faculty.

Round out your education with related work experiences and structured internships around the globe, along with career services, community service and leadership opportunities.

It’s why our alumni chose JWU, and why so many of our graduates are defining career success today.
