We're On a Mission

DeVry University strives to close our society’s opportunity gap by preparing learners to thrive in careers shaped by continuous technological change. Through innovative programs, relevant partnerships and exceptional care, we empower students to meaningfully improve their lives, communities and workplaces.

Classes Start Every 8 Weeks

Whether you know exactly where you're heading, or you're still planning your next steps, it all starts with a simple conversation. Let’s talk.


We’re Helping to Close the Workforce Gap

This gap is only widening as careers are dramatically reshaped by continuous technological change, and businesses are vying for tech-fluent talent to help pave the way forward in a digitized economy.

Why is DeVry the solution to help close this workforce gap? With a deep understanding of the modern world of work, DeVry makes a tech-empowered education accessible to learners. Especially to those who otherwise might not find success, and we prepare them for the future to help meet the needs of today’s digital-forward business landscape. We aim to accomplish this as a pioneering tech educator of adult learners, with a unique focus on innovation, student care, accountability and strategic business partnerships.

Operating with Accountability at a Higher Standard

We have embraced a set of Accountability Principles to support our Mission and hold ourselves publicly accountable for doing what’s best for our students. Our Accountability Principles are focused on four areas:
