A Message from Our President

Welcome. My name is Manuel Alonso, and I’m proud to be the President of Schiller International University. For more than fifty years, Schiller has offered students a unique opportunity to enrich their studies—and their lives—through a truly international educational experience.

Whether you have just completed high school or are seeking a graduate degree, your main concern when choosing an educational institution is to select a school and a program that opens doors to professional opportunity. At Schiller, we know that our global outlook and the immersive international experience we provide can open those doors. All over the world, our alumni are taking on key roles in society, policy, and business.

In today’s globalized economy, candidates with first-hand knowledge of how leading countries do business and make policy can stand out in the international job marketplace. When you earn your degree from Schiller International University, you can become that candidate.

Our programs offer you:

  • In-demand undergraduate and graduate degree programs in International Relations and Diplomacy, International Business, International Tourism and Hospitality, and International Economics;
  • Preparation to become a registered nurse through our accelerated, 22-month Associate of Nursing Program in Largo (Tampa), Florida—take just one class per month;
  • Professors who combine advanced academic credentials with significant industry experience in their fields of expertise;
  • The unique ability to move from one international campus to another without changing schools or programs;
  • Immersive cultural experiences at centrally-located campuses in Largo, Florida; Heidelberg, Germany; Paris, France; and Madrid, Spain;
  • Classes taught in English at all campuses, with intensive foreign-language study available in German, French, or Spanish;
  • Convenient online study options—pursue your degree entirely online, or combine campus courses with online classes to fit your needs;
  • Accelerated course schedules with programs beginning every month, so you can start earning your degree when you are ready and graduate faster.

When you study with us, you become part of our world-wide learning community. The students and professors you will meet at our campuses will challenge and inspire you, becoming your friends, mentors, and professional contacts.
