Concordia University Wisconsin

Founded in 1881, Concordia University Wisconsin is situated on 200 acres of Lake Michigan shoreline in Mequon, Wisconsin. The university has six academic schools and offers more than 75 academic programs; including six doctoral programs and Wisconsin’s largest MBA. Whether online or in-person, students experience a genuine, purposeful education and develop in mind, body, and spirit as they go forth in myriad vocations to live a “you first” life in a “me first” world.  

In 2013, Concordia University Wisconsin merged with Concordia University Ann Arbor in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Together, CUWAA annually enrolls nearly 8,000 undergraduate, adult, and graduate learners. The university is part of the Concordia University System, a nationwide network of colleges and universities that are each independently run but affiliated with The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.
