The University of Bridgeport prides itself on being one of America's most international universities. The University's interest in gathering a diverse population of domestic and international students dates back some four decades. Throughout its history, the University has hosted heads of state, Nobel laureates, high ranking United Nations officials, key figures in international business and thousands of international students. World personalities abound in the ranks including Nobel Laureate Ralph Bunche, Eleanor Roosevelt, Dr. Martin Luther King, as well as Russian Prime Minister Viktor Chermomyrdin, UN Undersecretary General Gambari, and many others.
The University also works to provide qualified students the possibility of internships in international organizations, embassies, and transnational corporations. Located just one hour from New York and only forty minutes from Stamford, CT (home of the sixth largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies in the United States), the University's programs and course offerings that allow our students to experience an international learning environment make UB a very special place to study and to realize your potential as a global citizen.
Through our curricular, co-curricular, and extracurricular initiatives, the University provides unique venues for learning about other cultures and preparing for careers in a world that increasingly demands intercultural and international sophistication. We at the University of Bridgeport are dedicated to building a community of scholars that constructively and positively meets the challenges of an increasingly interconnected world.
We look forward to you visiting our website and our campus!
