Be More Competitive in the Global Economy
With growing competition in a shrinking world, students must expand their knowledge and develop the skills needed to assume positions in a global economy, whether their careers take them abroad or not. Western International University (West), an accredited, 34-year leader in educating adults, prepares students to lead in the global marketplace. With three campuses in Arizona and a live, interactive online classroom, our innovative curriculum combines your specific field of study with global political economics, as well as cross-cultural communication and interpersonal skills.
Fewer Monologues and More Dialogue
West instructors are trained in the latest teaching methods and use of technology. As a result, classes go far beyond the lecture, with theories and case studies that are immediately transferable to the workplace. Our West Interactive Online classes are live and fully interactive–replicating the on campus experience. Students are able to see, hear and participate in real time, and every student is encouraged to contribute. If you miss your live class session, you can watch the recorded session any time during the week.
At West, our professors are respected professionals in the fields of business, marketing, management and IT, hired for their ability to lead and inspire others. They’re as passionate about teaching as our students are about learning, and skilled in creating a truly engaging learning environment.

Helping you earn your degree while meeting your commitments is our top priority, and we give you our full support.
