There’s no reason to wait. Experience your future now.

At Johnson & Wales University, you’ll find a professionally-focused education with plenty of internships, professional development and leadership opportunities so you can build your résumé before you graduate. You’ll take classes in your major as early as your freshman year, which means you’ll learn about subject areas you’re really excited about sooner.

Choose from programs in arts & sciences, business, hospitality and culinary arts. Learn in small classes led by faculty who’ll get to know you and serve as your career mentors. Many have significant industry experience in the field they teach – and can help you make connections for internships and full-time positions. It’s all designed so that when you graduate, you’ll be ahead of the competition.

Get Experience

Internships are a huge part of what makes a JWU education different. No matter which program you choose, you’ll find internship opportunities. More than 540 JWU students at our campus in North Miami interned last year with companies and organizations such as Mondrian South Beach, Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, Whitehaus Media Group, Breakers Hotel, Sanctuary Golf Club, Noma (in Copenhagen) and Carnival Cruise Lines. And of all our North Miami students who interned, 58% were offered employment at the end of their internship.

Get Involved

Get Out and About

We’re perfectly situated – equidistant from the tropical paradises of Fort Lauderdale and Miami, two of the “hottest” cities in the country. In both you’ll find a combustible combination of shopping, arts, world-class cuisine, design, pristine beaches and sizzling nightlife. Plus with four pro sports teams in the area and 15 golf courses to choose from, you’ll never be bored. And because South Florida is an international tourist destination, you’ll find plenty of opportunities for internships and employment.

Get Hired

At most schools, career services is an office you visit just before you graduate during your senior year. We start career development your first year, both in class and through a wide range of career and professional development seminars. But what really sets us apart are the companies we bring to campus to recruit JWU students for internships and for full-time positions. Last year, we brought companies to campus nearly 300 times, resulting in almost 500 student interviews.
