Introduction
EFMD Equis Accredited

Kean University is an accredited State University in New Jersey and is home to the Nathan Weiss Graduate College. The University is located just a few miles away from New York City. Kean is a metropolitan, comprehensive, interactive university that provides world-class education to its approximately 2,500 students.

The University supports a student-centered learning environment that nurtures the development of the whole student for rewarding careers, lifelong learning and fulfilling lives in a global society. It maintains a commitment to excellence and equity in enrollment, instruction and administration.

In today's increasingly complex, diverse, and technological world, professionals and students alike are looking to enhance their skills, start a new and rewarding career, or simply advance within their current organization. Others seek to shield themselves from a tough economy, guarantee their job security, or safeguard a secure future for their families. But one constant still remains- the power of a world-class education.

The Graduate College offers a sweeping range of distinguished, comprehensive, graduate-level programs, including doctoral degrees, professional diplomas, master's degrees, certifications, and non-degree programs. The tremendous breadth of these options span: education, nusiness, public administration, natural, applied, and health sciences, humanities, social sciences, and the arts.

Here, a degree is not earned on paper. It is achieved through hands-on learning, preparing students with the real-world experience necessary to begin their careers the day they graduate. Simply put, Kean students learn by doing.
