Years of Experience

Wisconsin International University (WIU) was established in 1992


Wisconsin International University & College (WIU)

Wisconsin International University (WIU) was established in 1992. Its purpose is to provide students in foreign countries; especially, developing countries the opportunity to continue their higher education and pursue degrees modeled after universities in the United States. All courses are taught in English.

WIU established its first campus in 1993 in Tallinn, Estonia under the name of Concordia International University Estonia as an independent, private university with all courses taught in English. It was accredited by the Estonia Minister of Education to offer a bachelor’s degree in international business. It has since merged with the Tallinn Technological University.

In 1997, Wisconsin International University Ukraine was founded in Kiev as an independent university offering bachelor and master degree programs accredited by the Ukraine Minister of Education. For more information go to www.wiuu.edu.ua.

From 1993 to 1998, WIU had a partnership with the Lutheran University in Brazil in which WIU sent faculty from the United States to enable Brazil students to obtain a doctorate degree in Education. The degree was validated by Federal Universities in Brazil.

Why we do it

The Accreditation Board of the Ministry of Education in Accra, Ghana, in 2000, provided approval and then accreditation for bachelor and master degree programs for Wisconsin International University College Ghana. Today, the university has over 4000 students from many West African countries. The website, www.wiuc-ghana.edu.gh will provide further information.

Through the years, WIU has worked with partners in China, Hong Kong, Nigeria, Taiwan, and Singapore to provide bachelor and master degrees. Today, the emphasis is on establishing a university in developing countries.

Currently, the foundation is being laid to establish Wisconsin International University & College Liberia in Monrovia. The goal is for WIUL to begin by offering university preparation courses to enable students to pass the WAEC examination to be successful in being admitted into universities to continue their studies. A concept paper will soon be submitted to the National Commission of Higher Education to receive approval to offer undergraduate and graduate programs.
