About Herzing


Herzing University was one of the first post-secondary institutions founded to prepare students for careers in the computer industry. Since 1965 business and computer-related education has been the focus of Herzing, even as it grew to encompass campuses in eight U.S. states and the founding of its Online Division, Herzing University Online.

While expanding its campuses, Herzing also diversified its educational programs to include the fields of business management, electronics, health care, graphic design, and public safety. It also raised the level of credentials from diplomas to bachelor of science degrees and associate of science degrees at all U.S. campuses and master’s degrees at the Online campus.

The managers and executives of Herzing have been leaders in their respective industries, and Herzing University has been nationally recognized for its community service.
