Educator and entrepreneur F.C. Woodbury established the institution in 1884 as a response to the needs of Los Angeles’ growing business community. Woodbury College (as it was first known) quickly built a reputation for degrees leading to the professions.
Woodbury students leave the University with hands-on experience, real-world connections, and a top-tier education.
From business to media culture and design, Woodbury University thrives on research.
The Career Development Office provides programs, services and resources designed to encourage and assist students in all aspects of career planning. The office also fosters partnerships with employers, alumni, faculty and the community to provide opportunities for students to build the foundation of a successful career.
The mission of the office of Counseling Services is to foster the well-being of all Woodbury University students with the belief that emotional health and wellness are conducive to academic success. When students are socially, emotionally and mentally healthy, they are able to learn, access their own unique creativity, and recognize and develop to their full potential.

Helping to foster this nurturing and collaborative environment is Woodbury’s highly active student government organization—known as the Associated Students of Woodbury University (ASWU)—as well as the Campus Activities Board (CAB). Both of these organizations are committed to continuously enhancing the social and cultural environment on campus by providing a variety of programs.
Woodbury is accredited by six national and regional organizations. National accreditation is crucial – for example, most major companies do not hire from non-AACSB business schools.
