At the Columbus International University Online Learning Higher Education Campus we understand that, for most working professionals, executives and mature students the purpose of higher education is to prepare them for positions of higher responsibility in their work place. A few centuries ago, when higher education institutions were primarily theological seminaries, a university would provide higher learning so that its graduates would apply in society - primarily in professions like religion, medicine, law and education. Present day universities certify students in a far wider range of disciplines, but the underlying purpose remains that of certifying the students as capable of working at the certain level in his/her field. To that end, the university understands that the real-world and training are equal value and importance to class room and book learning. The Columbus International University Online Higher Education Campus, is proud to recognize the prior accomplishments of its students in order that they benefit from their experiences and continue to contribute to their communities and society.

CIU's admission requirements are not similar to those of other traditional universities because CIU gives exemption for prior work experiences. CIU uses the guidelines set by the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) for evaluating Experiential Learning for academic credit. While CIU will accept transfer credits from other institutions, CIU may also accept on the work experience, work-related trainings, seminars, workshops and forums related to your field as valid reasons to challenge courses or to establish unique, directed, study program. In the 21st century, flexibility and relevant work place higher education are the criteria by which working professionals, executives and mature students are selecting their certification paths.

Business & Management, Engineering & Applied Science, Liberal Arts, Creative Technologies & Science, and Open programs are designed to produce professionals and executives who can respond successfully to rapid changes in an ultra-competitive corporate and business environment. The higher education you receive will be demanding yet individualized to suit your own specific career roles and interests.

Preparing management professionals for leadership roles the Columbus International University graduate school programs are well suited to anyone who has reached a point in his/her career where tangible recognition of their achievement and expertise is due.

As the president of the Columbus International University, I welcome all prospective working professionals, executives and mature students.
