Traditional universities are education factories. Each year, the same old regimented, confined text book knowledge is given to millions and millions of people. Every graduate is your competitor and you won't go far in life with this type of standardized education. You need more than this average higher education to succeed. Life is tough!

At Washington International University, in addition to the many degree programs we offer, we also teach understanding and imagination

-When you understand you control. When you imagine, you create and succeed.-

In 1994, we established Washington International University and we made it our mission to provide beneficial, locally usable higher education to adults living in the developing countries where limited resources and daily challenges require creative solutions, sometimes daring actions.

As a global higher education provider we are a member of UNESCO's International Council for Adult Education (ICAE). We open the minds and horizons of adults who are limited by the type of university education that is only regionally available.

Our internet based distance education reaches all corners of the world with the help of an exceptionally experienced and capable academic staff.

Are you ready to excel in life and join the many thousands of Washington International University graduates, to become more than what you are and make a difference in your community? We look forward to your enrollment. You can make the world a better place for yourself, for your family and for your country.
