"Senior managers are impressed I'm finding a way to earn my PhD while handling a hectic schedule. It wouldn't be possible without the flexibility provided by Walden."

Why Walden? A University for Working Professionals

Walden University was founded in 1970 by two teachers seeking a better way for adults to pursue advanced degrees without leaving the workforce.

That vision meant rethinking a brick-and-mortar classroom to allow broader access through distance education. Our proven track record in online higher education has grown our learning community to include more than 52,600 students and more than 96,000 alumni worldwide.

Walden University is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission, www.hlcommission.org. The Higher Learning Commission is one of six regional accrediting associations recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.

Today, we continue to find new and innovative ways to support the unique needs of adult learners like you. Our online degree programs are developed to advance your knowledge and help you apply that knowledge in ways that impact your profession and your community through:

  • Quality curricula
  • A focus on relevant, actionable learning
  • Superior student support
  • A path for lifelong learning
