About Piedmont International University

Piedmont International University is an established provider of exceptional Christian higher education. Our passion is to graduate men and women who are thoroughly equipped to be successful global leaders who live abundant lives.

Piedmont's history dates back over a hundred years — one of its constituent colleges, the erstwhile John Wesley University, had its origins in 1903, and is recognized as the oldest undergraduate theological institution in North Carolina. In its modern form, PIU has been educating students for successful careers since 1945 and is proud to enable the success of thousands of graduates all over the world.

Amidst national concern about rising student debt, Piedmont is pioneering the delivery of exceptional academic curriculum in an affordable form. Our degree programs incorporate the latest research about employment trends and workplace skills gaps to provide students with a competitive advantage. And Piedmont puts classroom teaching first – emphasizing the quality of the learning experience as much as research, impact, and engagement. Our focus is student-centric and designed to ensure that you learn the competencies and skills sought by employers.

Join Piedmont's vibrant, values-based, and innovative community and prepare to become a future-focused leader.
