Our Legacy Meets Your Future. NU educates its students and enriches their lives through programs and career preparation. We seek to instil a passion for knowledge and inquiry.

Founded by the Vincentian Community in 1856, Niagara University is a private university providing a strong, values-based education. Its four academic divisions include the faculties of Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, Education, and Hospitality and Tourism Management. As a bi-national institution, we have two state of the art facilities. Our main campus is located at the northern limits of the City of Niagara Falls, N.Y., on the Niagara River. Niagara University in Ontario is located in the heart of the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre (VMC) on Highway 7. More than 4,200 students are enrolled in our undergraduate and graduate programs. Niagara University in Ontario is now offering four Graduate program, and one baccalaureate program:

  • Master of Business Administration
  • Master of Science in Finance
  • Master of Science in Information Security and Digital Forensics
  • Master of Science in Educational Leadership
  • Bachelor of Professional Studies in Education

With articulation agreements in place with Humber College, for our programs in business and information security and digital forensics, students who have completed a 4-year degree program will have pre-requisite courses waived enabling them to start right into the program of their choice. Our MBA and MS in Finance programs offered through the Faculty of Business Administration are AACSB accredited, one of the highest achievements a business school can achieve. This puts Niagara University within an elite group among fewer than 5% of the world’s business schools. The MS in Information Security and Digital Forensics program, which addresses one of the highest needs areas globally, is designed to prepare students for the workforce and for the Certified Information Systems Security Management Professionals (CISSP) certification along with the AccessData Certified Examiner (ACE) designation. Niagara University is also an official training center for Cellebrite (mobile forensics). Our small class sizes accentuate individualized learning with highly credentialed faculty; evening, weekend, and online options; hands-on, practical knowledge; and the education needed to succeed in today's fast-paced world. Niagara has an established tradition of excellence and is ready to welcome you to our vibrant community.
