Post University is a small, private, for-profit university located in the suburbs of Waterbury, Connecticut. Founded in 1890 as a business school, the aim of the college then as it is today is to provide training and education to young men and women and equip them with skills they need to compete in the world of business,
When it was established in 1890, the university was called Post College. It maintained affiliations with Teikyo University in Tokyo, Japan from 1990 to 2004 during which time it became known as Teikyo Post University. With the changes in the economy of Japan, Teikyo University transferred its control of Teikyo Post University to a new Board of Trustees and the school changes its name to Post University.
Today, Post University offers associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degrees in various fields such as information technology, health, business, sports management, equine business management, criminal justice, and social services.
