  • High Caliber Faculty: You'll work closely with faculty members who are recognized as leading professionals in their field.
  • Innovative Courses: Our innovative curriculum focuses on real-world applications.
  • Comfortable Classroom Environment: Instead of relying on lectures, you'll learn through faculty-guided discussions as you apply the materials to real-world issues.
  • Convenient Locations: In addition to our convenient South Park campus in Charlotte, our campus in Misenheimer, and our Triangle campus, we offer on-site degree programs at corporate locations throughout the Carolinas.

  • Online Learning: With Pfeiffer's on-line programs, you can earn your degree around your work and family commitments. We also offer Hybrid courses that combine on-line and classroom meetings.
  • International Experience: Many of our programs offer an international experience in Austria, Canada, Germany, England or other destinations.

Individual appointments allow students to meet one-on-one with a Pfeiffer representative to discuss admissions requirements and general program information.  Appointments are available Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.  Class visits are also available.
