Keiser University is a four-year private university in Florida.
Keiser was founded in 1977 by the Keiser family to fill a need for adults looking for career education. Founded in Fort Lauderdale, it was called the Keiser School with a focus on business and health care. As more programs for paralegal fields and computer science were added, it became the Keiser Institute of Technology. It started offering associate degrees in 1986 and bachelor’s degrees in 2001. It was renamed Keiser University in 2006 and now offers certificates and degrees up to the doctoral level.

They now offer more than 100 certificate and degree programs in fields including Finance, Information Technology, Psychology, Marketing, Education, and Health Sciences.
