National College
Selden, United Kingdom


University description (as per official university website)

Founded in 1886, National College provides a wide variety of undergraduate degree and diploma curriculums in the fields of business, healthcare, legal, tourism, hospitality and technology. The programs offer training for specific career fields. According to National College, the programs are updated frequently to meet the demands of employers. In addition, computer training is provided in all the programs. Some of the curriculums offer externships.


The fundamental purpose of National College is to educate men and women for the duties and responsibilities of business life and to help place them in positions which hold ample opportunities for career advancement.
The College attempts to instill in our graduates the desire to take initiative in directing their professional lives and the ability to adapt effectively to the challenges and demands of modern business. Our aim is to have the resources, curriculum, staff, and faculty that motivate and prepare students for success in well-defined fields of employment.


Career opportunities in business and technology continue to expand for well-trained individuals.
The curricula at National College trains each student to take advantage of these opportunities, concentrating on essential professional skills that will lead toward employment in a specific career field. Programs are planned to offer the most efficient methods in business organization and management, so our graduates can meet the expectations of modern business environments.
A major strength of the College is its ability to quickly adjust the curriculum, both to reflect the employment needs of business and industry and to satisfy the career interests of students. Community representatives serving as Campus Advisory Boards provide current and timely advice relative to the employment needs of business, technical, and government organizations. The College also utilizes graduate and employer surveys to provide critical, employment-market information so that its programs can be tailored to meet the changing demands of the marketplace.

Structure & Design of Programs

The programs of study at National College are career-oriented. Students enrolled in a diploma program take a number of entry-level courses which cultivate the skills they need to begin their careers. Students in the associate degree programs take a number of program-specific courses that would normally be offered only as upper-level classes at other institutions. These classes ensure that associate degree graduates are highly competitive job candidates, prepared to excel in their chosen fields. The baccalaureate programs in accounting and management build on the associate degree programs through additional, program-specific courses. This provides an in-depth, well-rounded, and rigorous educational experience, enabling our graduates to compete in the global economy.
The Master of Business Administration program provides Bachelorís degree holders the opportunity to gain graduate-level training and expertise in numerous areas of management. The Masterís program utilizes a cross-functional approach to provide the foundational knowledge necessary for managerial efficiency and leadership in both private and public job markets.
Students enrolled in a program are considered to be concurrently enrolled in any lesser, included programs. Upon completion of the requirements of such a program, they are entitled to the appropriate certificate, diploma, or degree.


The College was founded in 1886 by J. A. Trimmer in Roanoke, Virginia, and was originally known as National Business College. Mr. Trimmer conceived of and organized the College to serve as a leader in business education, not only in the Roanoke Valley of Virginia, but throughout the southeastern United States.
E.M. Coulter came to the College as an instructor in 1896. He became president in 1901, and served in that capacity until his retirement in 1946, a full fifty years of leadership from the Industrial Revolution to the post-World War II era.
M. A. Smythe served as president of the College from 1946-51, but had been associated with the school since 1903 when he first enrolled as a student. He was succeeded by Murray K. Coulter, son of the late E.M. Coulter. Realizing the need to preserve the heritage of the College, Mr. Coulter dedicated his life to safeguarding the institution's philosophy and reputation for academic excellence. He also emphasized social values as he continued to preserve National's role as a leader in private career education, until his death in 1975.
Under the guidance of the current administration, the last quarter of the 20th century saw the addition of seven additional campus locations in Virginia.
The growth trend continued in the 1990s with the addition of the six-campus Kentucky College of Business. The College was founded in 1941 in Lexington, Kentucky by Mary F. Crump. In 1962 Joseph E. Hurn was named president, and under his leadership the institution grew to become Kentucky's largest multiple-campus system of private career colleges.
Fugazzi College also became a part of the family of colleges during this time. Irene and Flora Fugazzi started the Fugazzi School of Business in 1915, the first school in central Kentucky created primarily for women wanting to enter the business community. It added a branch campus in Nashville, Tennessee in 1991. Fugazzi's Lexington campus was combined with KCB's Lexington campus in 2001.
At the same time, all three colleges became known as National College of Business & Technology, a name acknowledging our rich heritage dating to the 19th century and our cutting-edge training for success in the 21st century.
The new century also saw the addition of a campus in Knoxville, Tennessee in 2003 and Dayton and Cincinnati, Ohio in 2004.
