Established in 1987, Honolulu University (HU) was one of the first to recognize today’s volatile business environment and the importance of distance learning to busy working professionals. HU adopts an interactive, independent study model for delivering its quality education to students worldwide.

HU is a learner-centered institution which means that students and their needs always come first. It is committed to providing its students an effective study program designed to enhance their personal performance and competency to allow them to achieve their personal and professional goals; and, to ensure that its innovative, quality programs are relevant to the realities of the world today and students’ dreams and goals.

The University strives to expand educational opportunities for those who have the desire to continue their educational advancement. Unlike traditional universities, Honolulu University values different work and life experiences, believing these factors are among the constituent parts of a successful professional and personal life. In view of this, Honolulu University accepts credit transfer from experiential learning and work experience.

Over the years, Honolulu University has trained many students into managers and professionals; and, has received many praises and appreciations.
