Grantham University – Why Work For Us?

A RICH HISTORY OF Educational Service!

Founded in 1951, Grantham University developed as part of the traditional college and university movement of the late 20th Century with a main campus in Southern California. As interest in Grantham's degree programs grew beyond campus boundaries, the college developed distance education programs to serve a geographically dispersed student body. Over time and as technology advanced, so too did our ability to serve our students. In the late ’90s, Grantham began offering degree programs exclusively online.

Today Grantham is still 100% online, offering more than 50 degree and certificate programs in four different colleges: the College of Engineering and Computer Science; the Mark Skousen School of Business; the College of Nursing and Allied Health; and the College of Arts and Sciences.


Our Purpose, Our Passion

Grantham University was founded in 1951 by WWII Veteran Donald Grantham, whose desire was to help fellow veterans improve their lives through higher education. Today, Mr. Grantham's vision and philosophy on quality distance learning remain the driving force behind our success.

As a 100% online university serving a highly diverse student population, Grantham believes education should enhance your life – not get in the way of it. That’s why everything we do, every single day, is centered on our students – minimizing potential obstacles and maximizing quality learning.

You do your part by working hard to earn your degree. And we do ours by providing you an exceptional Grantham experience that leads to an even more amazing career.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Grantham University (Lenexa, KS).


    Standard interviewing process. Phone screening with the recruiter followed by initial interview with supervisor and follow up interview with team members. The recruiter and marketing team were both very friendly and transparent during the interviews. It would have been a great opportunity - just had a better offer from another organization.
