Our students are all mature students who are junior-level professionals and executives, middle-level professionals and executives and senior-level professionals and executives. Today we believe passionately in Online Higher Education and our new approach opens up new venues and opportunities for all levels of busy professionals and executives to further enhance their career and prosper in their life.

The core in all our programs is the belief that they should be practical and relevant to every mature student's needs. Our faculty and support staffs are dedicated to helping every student through every stage of their route in completing their programs of study successfully and graduating.In the 21st century, online higher education is the most intelligent way to earn your degree and to advance in your career and prosper in life.

Our belief: Prosperity begins with knowledge and proper knowledge comes from higher education. 

The most profitable way to invest your free time to acquire remarkable rewards, both financial and in terms of personal growth is to enroll for the Columbus International University online higher education campus degree programs.

Gone are the days where knowledge was merely power. As from now on knowledge will set the international standing of wealth of a nation. Why knowledge? One may say, we have ample land, natural resources, labor and capital to produce and meet the global economic requirements to sustain competitive advantage in any given region or to compete internationally without fear. The fear is already prominent with the oil barons who at one time totally claimed to be the wealthiest in the globe; just for the simple reason that the reality of a substitute for oil is getting closer and closer day by day.

Whatever one claims and challenges, we claim and challenge that knowledge is the greatest commodity and everlasting asset a nation or an individual can possess as from the 21st century and thereafter. We at Columbus started our research way back in 1997 and after conducting more than a decade of applied research in online higher education, we are prepared and invite interested parties or individuals to visit our website for a thorough preview. Please contact us immediately should you wish to have further details. Ciuohe campus are committed to Excellence in Online Higher Education through Research.

Life is for Joy

Many (Most) people do not know: What Life is all about?! The deepest secret is that "LIFE" is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation. In the process of creating yourself, a new you, discover who you want to be. With this knowledge "LIFE" is an opportunity for you to know experientially what you already know "CONCEPTUALLY". Then you create a new and move on the creativity-cycle. Do not abandon your mind, the greatest tool of creativity. Make friends with your mind. You may even experience a regeneration of your "SOUL". Thus, justify your life and give it purposes, then within you, you will do more than succeed and be of value. You will notice this link "Life is for Joy" above, just click this link and go through it thoroughly very slowly (it's a very long link with more than 800 Slides as well as illustrations) you will find almost the whole content appealing as well as all the ideas presented to fulfill your creativity needs. Nature itself is a creative process so is life. Have a wonderful and joyous time rest of your life….

What is so Good about Accredited Institutions-Discover the Truth below….

online MBA

Bill Gates told Harvard, "This is not what I want"….

Steve Jobs left Reed College because it was not his cup of tea….

Albert Einstein told himself, "I will do it on my own", and formed Olympia Academy….

Mohandas K. Gandhi (M. K. Gandhi) failed several times in University of London before completing Law and making the British Empire collapse….

Christopher Columbus told himself, "I will take the direction no one has ever taken", and discovered Americas….

None of the above five had a Standardized mind/brain….

Let it be Harvard, MIT, Caltech, Stanford, Oxford, Cambridge or even in the East University of Melbourne, all are accredited or are with royal charter but none ever can come close to Columbus International University Online Higher Education Campus ( which is non-accredited because just one link “Life is for Joy” took us twenty years of search, research and to perfect (1995-2015) and finally completed this month December 30, 2015….

The United States boasts about being top in quality education but has failed to save many precious lives, such as the one of the late Steve Jobs (one of my many close friends whom I miss)….

But certainly the United States is good….simply because she does not believe in illusion and these two past Presidents has proved it: John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan (these two are certainly immortals) but I am sorry to say that the current US President (2015) is merely….a waste of time and resources….

Thank you.

Questions & Answers

1) What are the benefits of Online Higher Education Programs?

A significant benefit from many online higher education programs is flexibility. Online higher education programs enable students to take classes or work on a degree without sacrificing their job or family commitments. They also can benefit those who need timely training or would learn better without the rigid structure of a traditional university program.

2) Does the Online Higher Education Program affect the quality of my degree?

Our graduates continue to be the best validation of the effectiveness of our degree programs, rating their knowledge and skills superior of their peers who have a similar degree earned in a traditional setting. Many large corporations have accepted our degrees and provide financial support to our students. Employers, in particular, have been enthusiastic to learn that a degree program can be tailored to integrate the student's professional needs.

3) How good is the faculty and are the Columbus International University Online Higher Education Campus degrees respected around the world?

The Columbus International University Online Higher Education Campus was founded for the purpose of providing higher education online and granting degrees to students who meet its graduation requirements. Since then we have had thousands of graduates! CIU graduates are recognized for their accomplishments in business, industry, international organizations, United Nations and governments around the world! That is the best proof of respect and recognition of a Columbus International University Online Higher Education Campus degree.

4) Can I complete the degree program 100% online?

Yes. You can complete a degree program, from the start to the finish, entirely online. At the online higher education campus, there is no need ever to set foot on a campus so long as you are able to meet the requirements for the courses that comprises the program of studies for your degree. An increasingly large number of students are completing their degree programs without ever travelling from their home country. Of course, a degree completed online is exactly the same as a degree completed through on-campus instruction, from the subject matter and assignment covered, to the wording on the degree scroll itself.

5) Will CIU accept relevant work experience and external courses/training as credit towards a degree or diploma program?

Yes. You can receive course credits towards your degree for a wide variety of life and work experience, including professional experience, trainings, seminars, workshops and forums. The Columbus International University Online Higher Education Campus will evaluate all relevant experience and/or training and may award you credit toward your ultimate degree goal. The policy of the Columbus International University is to reward students for real-world experience, as that is of primary importance to employers at the turn of the 21st century. Thus, students may challenge any course for which they believe themselves to have sufficient work experience with the subject matter to qualify for exemption, or for which prior training has been accomplished.

6) How is a degree earned through online different from a degree earned through classroom attendance?

There is no difference. The Columbus International University contends that how a student studies and earns his/her degree or diploma is irrelevant.

7) Does the degree indicate that it was earned through Online Higher Education?

No, it does not. The Columbus International University issues a standard degree or diploma, irrelevant whether you complete your degree in a classroom setting or online.

8) How long will I take to complete my degree?

This depends on your motivation and discipline since you study at your own pace. The average student takes approximately twelve months to complete his/her degree (extension of time to complete your degree is given with regards to the level stated in the Duration of Study Programs).

9) Can I transfer my credit from the Columbus International University Online Higher Education Campus to another University?

Transferring credit from online higher education providers to traditional campus-based universities is sometimes difficult. Please check with the institutions you are interested in for their acceptance requirements.
