driving students toward success for more than 100 years. We’re focused on helping our students make more than a living — we help them build a life they’ll love. With roots as a small business school, JWU has cultivated a supportive environment where students and faculty work together to bring out the best in each other across multiple disciplines. We continue to evolve as we apply our passion and knowledge to everything we teach, from engineering to culinary to marketing. In 2018, our new strategic initiative placed a strong emphasis on developing interdisciplinary programs focused on relevant industry demands. It’s how we help prepare our students to take their place in the global workforce. To fulfill part of that vision, we recently announced the creation of our new College of Food Innovation & Technology (CFIT). Beginning in fall 2020, CFIT will offer students an approach to education that explores culinary systems within the context of social, political and economic landscapes, analyzing the impact that food has on us all. With this knowledge, students can develop solutions, practices and food innovations that make a difference in everyday lives.

HELP YOUR STUDENTS BE UNSTOPPABLE Education is not conﬁned to the four walls of the classroom at JWU. And earning a degree in less time is easy.
Here, students are not going to spend their entire time with their noses buried in a book, learning theories that they may never get a chance to apply — they’re going to get into the real world and apply them through internships, group projects, leadership opportunities, competitions and more. From their first day here, they’ll be immersed in a professionally focused curriculum, learning by doing. Whether they know exactly what they’re looking for, or want to explore different areas of interest, JWU has many options to choose from.
WAYS STUDENTS CAN E ARN THEIR DEGREE FASTER EARLY ENROLLMENT PROGRAM
High school juniors can get started early at Johnson & Wales through the Early Enrollment Program (EEP). This program allows students to apply for early enrollment at JWU during their junior year of high school. Then, at the beginning of their senior year, they’ll start attending classes at JWU — earning credits for high school and college courses while still participating in their school activities.
Undergraduate students looking to earn a graduate degree in less time can do so through our Accelerated Master’s programs. During their senior year at JWU, they can take one or two graduate-level classes at no additional cost, saving money on their grad tuition. After completing their bachelor’s degree, they’ll continue their education by taking the remaining graduate courses required for their program of interest.
Eligibility: High school seniors (program requirements must be met) Application deadline: During the spring of junior year Availability: All Johnson & Wales campuses Beneﬁts: Students graduate one full year earlier, save on tuition by paying half the regular tuition their first year at JWU, and more. Note: Students are eligible for JWU scholarships totaling up to 50% of any institutional aid they receive, but are not eligible for federal financial aid in the first year of EEP enrollment. For more information, visit jwu.edu/eep.
Accelerated Master’s programs include accounting, information technology, finance, hospitality and more. Visit jwu.edu/accelerated-masters-program for details.
CRE ATING A LIFE THEY’LL LOVE , ONE EXPERIENCE AT A TIME At JWU, opportunity becomes both a job and a passion for what students do — one of many building blocks for a life they’ll love.
We’ve spent years working to enrich the student learning experience by turning classroom theory into real world practice. Whether students want to jump right into working for a company or sample different industries to see what fits, we’ve got them covered — and we’re getting them to work.
OUR STUDENTS DON’ T JUST TAKE CREDIT, THE Y E ARN IT
WORLD - CL ASS OPPORTUNITIE S
Internships are a core part of our academic programs. We don’t just treat them as an elective, or a way to spend the summer between students’ junior and senior year. They are just as important as any class, with full academic credit and the opportunity to learn valuable lessons, the kind students can only get through first-hand experience. Last year, 73% of JWU students received a job offer at the end of their paid internship. More than 2,890 JWU students interned at 1,654 companies worldwide.
No matter what major students choose to study, they have the ability to take it to the next level. Sometimes that level is halfway around the globe, and all they need to do is get there with the help of our study abroad programs. With programs in locations from Athens to Zanzibar in areas like community engagement and software engineering, the JWU global experience means students are sure to find something that makes them dig a little deeper, think a little broader, and venture a little outside their comfort zone. Beyond that, they’ll gain skills that employers value, like ﬂexibility and intercultural competence, and make professional connections that could last a lifetime.

N AT I O N A L S T U D E N T O R G A N I Z AT I O N S ( N S O ) AT J W U Johnson & Wales has a rich history of supporting National Student Organizations (NSO) and developing strong relationships with high school advisors. In fact, we’ve been doing it for more than 30 years. Our JWU representatives actively participate in state, regional and national conferences and mentor students as they navigate the transition to college. Last year, JWU awarded more than 4,700 NSO scholarships totaling more than $95 million over four years. More than 20% of all JWU students participated in one of these organizations while they were in high school and chose to continue their memberships at JWU. That translates into more than 2,600 NSO members across our four campuses. This community provides a strong network to assist students with their personal and professional growth. 6
This year, students from all campuses represented JWU at different competitions nationally and even internationally. In April, 59 NSO students took part in the 2019 DECA International Career Development Conference (ICDC). Two JWU students, Drew Duboff ’20 and Max May ’21, were elected as national officers at ICDC. And in July, 14 JWU students competed or took part in leadership events at the SkillsUSA’s annual National Leadership & Skills Conference. Of that group, 10 competed and 7 placed in the Top 10 in various categories. And at that same competition, Daylan Torres ’20 secured a spot to represent the USA at the WorldSkills 2019 competition held in Kazan, Russia.
NSO organizations at JWU include • Business Professionals of America (BPA) • DECA/Collegiate DECA • Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) • HOSA - Future Health Professionals • Junior Achievement (JA) • National FFA (FFA) • Future Business Leaders of America/Phi Beta Lambda • SkillsUSA • Technology Student Association (TSA) For more information about scholarships, contact email@example.com.
