The University’s mission is to offer students an array of business, liberal arts and sciences, and pre-professional programs of study that create a life transforming educational opportunity which is practical in its application, global in its scope, and multi-disciplinary in its general education core. 

About

History

On April 6, 1927, Grace Knight and Roger W. Babson founded the University which was to carry the last name of their granddaughter, Camilla Grace Webber. Webber was originally established as a women’s college, with the exclusive purpose of teaching women about business. It was the first school chartered under the educational and charitable laws of the State of Florida as a non-profit organization.

Career

The Career Services office is a resource for both current students and alumni of Webber International University. We strive to help students start preparing for their future career as soon as they step foot on Webber’s campus. The staff is available to help you figure out a little more about your personality through various assessments, ramp up your resume and cover letter, and assist in the development of your interview skills through mock interviews. We also aim to help you make connections with potential employers by organizing on-campus employer visits and an annual career fair here at Webber.
