University description (as per official university website)
In 1976, Dr. John Sperling, a Cambridge-educated economist and professor-turned-entrepreneur, saw an opportunity—and seized it—to cater to working adults seeking higher education by offering convenient class times at local sites.
Now we are the nation's largest private university, offering undergraduate and graduate degree programs at more than 200 locations, as well as online in most countries around the world.
Driven by innovation in education, we have pioneered many of the conveniences that students now enjoy — evening classes, flexible scheduling, continuous enrollment, a student-centered environment, online classes, a digital library and computer simulations.
