Nobel University’s main campus was founded in the summer of 2000 in Los Angeles, California. Committed to producing quality practitioners of Oriental Medicine, the University began by offering the Master of Science in Oriental Medicine program (MSOM).
In 2003, the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education approved the University to offer a certificate program in English as a Second Language (ESL), and in 2004 it was approved to offer the Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration (BBA) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) programs. In 2006, the University added the Bachelor of Arts in Church Music program (BCM). In 2009, a branch campus of the University was established in Buena Park, California to accommodate the growing student body.
In 2013, Nobel University shifted its strategic plan and its focus by concentrating exclusively on its business program offerings. Since Nobel University no longer provides the Certificate in English as a Second Language, Bachelor of Arts in Church Music, and Master of Science in Oriental Medicine programs, the University is able to specialize in the business education and deliver world-class education to its students.
In 2015, Nobel University celebrated its important milestone when it has been accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) to award the master’s degree level at the Los Angeles Main Campus and the bachelor’s degree level at the Buena Park Branch Campus. The Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools is listed as a nationally recognized accrediting agency by the United States Department of Education and is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). In the same year, Nobel University had been approved by the Council to offer Master of Business Administration program at the Buena Park campus and the English as a Second Language at both Los Angeles and Buena Park campuses.
In 2016, the Diamond Bar Learning Site facility was approved to operate by the Council and the Bureau, starting from fall 2016. Also, Nobel University Inc. has been designated a sponsor of an Exchange Visitor Program in accordance with the administrative regulations issued under the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961. The Exchange Visitor Program is to provide international participants with opportunities for professional development, insight into American know-how, and a greater understanding of American society and culture.
