In today’s fast-paced global business environment, engaging in life-long learning is crucial to ensuring that your skills remain relevant to employers.

Online learning technology and mobile devices have made pursuing a degree more affordable, and more flexible from a time management perspective, than ever before.

Key West University’s small average class size (15 students) and Personal Learning Advisors ensure that every student gets the individualized support they need to complete their studies.

KWU faculty and staff members believe that the academic and career success of our students is our top priority.
