In 1970, two educators were inspired to create opportunities for working professionals where there previously were none. Our founders saw the potential of distance learning to help adult learners earn advanced degrees. That’s how Walden University was born. Ever since, we’ve helped reshape access to education.

As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, we’re proud of the opportunities we’ve created and everything our students have achieved.

I feel it is going to be a great experience for me as it will allow me to advance my career and be able to apply my skills in the field I work.

Great grades, no funds to continue
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

The university has great support for student; lecturers available to help always. This has helped me do well in the courses covered so far. With the CORONA pandemic I am no longer able to work extra hours to support my study finances.

Great Experience at Walden University

The University faculty is great, the content and courses are relevant to the current changing times of leadership and management in NGOs. Walden promotes research that contributes to Positive Social Change which makes research relevant and profitable.
