About the University
Established in 1927 as one of the nation’s first business schools for women (now coed for decades) and the first not-for-profit school chartered under Florida’s educational and charitable laws, Webber International University now hosts men and women from some 45 different nations. We are a SACS accredited university.
Webber offers degrees at the associate’s and bachelor’s levels (Associate’s or Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration with majors in: Accounting, Computer Information Systems Management, Criminal Justice Management, Finance, Hospitality and Tourism Management, Integrated Marketing Communications, Management, Sport Business Management, and a Bachelor of Science in General Business Studies), and at the master’s level (MBA, MBA with an emphasis in Accounting, Criminal Justice Management, Sport Business Management, and International Business, respectively).
Webber International University is a teaching school. While there are expectations of scholarship and we have a well published Faculty, we are not a research institution and do not support research with either funding or release time. We provide some clerical support in the form of undergraduate work-studies, but we do not use teaching assistants. Our Faculty actually teach. Faculty interact with students outside the classroom and engage in professional development as well as become involved in the University and the local community.
Webber is a collegial, supportive campus. While Faculty members are appointed for one year terms at the discretion of the Chief Academic Officer (we do not grant tenure), several of our full-time Faculty have served greater than 20 years. While Webber pay is similar to that at other not-for-profit, tuition driven affordable colleges, our benefit package is fairly good.
Webber International University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer committed to provide equal employment opportunity to all persons regardless of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status.
