Founded in 1890, Post University is a student-focused, career-driven university committed to providing students with the knowledge, personal skills and experience required to be leaders in their chosen fields.
At Post University, we offer an exciting, challenging environment where students not only learn about specific subjects, but they learn about themselves and the careers available to them.
