The founders, Dr. Arthur Keiser and Mrs. Evelyn Keiser, felt that South Florida needed a private career college providing realistic hands-on training in a caring, conscientious and professional manner.

The University has grown rapidly over the past decades and has received numerous awards and recognition for its achievement in furthering career education in Florida. The main campus is located in Fort Lauderdale with additional campuses located throughout the State of Florida and internationally.
