Excellence in Online Education Since 1994 




Frederick Taylor University (FTU) was founded in 1994 and since then has undergone considerable positive and planned changes consistent with its quest and philosophy for improvement, quality, and value in distance education. As a University specializing in the field of management and business administration, the administration, faculty, and staff of Frederick Taylor University (FTU) endeavor to deliver high quality programs, offer teaching excellence, and exceptional student services.

Frederick Taylor University (FTU) is named after the “Father of Scientific Management” Frederick Winslow Taylor (March 20, 1856 – March 21, 1915), who obtained his degree from Stevens Institute of Technology via distance education (correspondence) in 1883. The University has attracted students from all over the world and continues to respond to the need for management knowledge and training in our increasingly global and complex competitive business environment. With expert faculty from various cultural and professional business backgrounds, Frederick Taylor University (FTU) facilitates independent learning and accomplishment of educational goals for professional working adults, as well as for those seeking an affordable quality education and degrees in the field of management and business administration. Our students are independent and motivated individuals from diverse national, geographic, ethnic, cultural, political, religious, and social backgrounds.



Frederick Taylor University (FTU) is a private institution of higher learning offering undergraduate and graduate degree programs in Management and Business Administration, through distance learning and online methodologies. FTU’s institutional plan is to serve the mature, adult learners, 20 years or older who: 

Due to some personal or professional considerations cannot pursue an on-campus degree program; 

• Wish to expand their educational knowledge by actively participating in an instructional program which integrates academic studies and work responsibilities; and 

• Are self-motivated, goal directed and possess a high degree of initiative in preparing for their continued education, self-growth and development.

Frederick Taylor University’s academic programs offer a structured, yet flexible undergraduate and graduate curriculum leading to either: a Bachelor of Science in Management; a Bachelor of Business Administration; or a Master in Business Administration.  

The BBA Degree can be pursued with specialization electives in the fields of Accounting, Information Systems, International Business, Operations Management, Marketing, Management, Health Care Administration, or Human Resources Management. 

The MBA Degree can be earned with specialization electives in the fields of Executive Management, International Business, Financial Management, Marketing Management, Information Systems, Health Care Administration, Operations Management, Supply Chain Management, Taxation, Global Economy, or Human Resources Management. 

FTU’s philosophy is based on the belief that professional experience and education are interrelated. Therefore, each student’s academic program culminates in the completion of an academic project related to a student’s practical experience and/or occupation. As FTU’s instructional goals are flexible and personalized, this project is developed with the assistance and approval of assigned faculty, qualified in the student’s subject area.

Once having accomplished these goals, the following outcomes will be evidenced by the adult learner: 

• Demonstrated mastery of course work assigned;

• Ability to analyze, define and recommend solutions to given problems;

• Demonstrated ability to reason and think abstractly;

• Demonstrated depth and breadth of knowledge in specified area of concentration;

• An educational preparedness suitable to pursue advanced degree Programs;

• An educational preparedness to qualify students to assume key responsibilities in business and professional environments.
