Mission Statement

To provide students with the opportunity to receive a high quality education for the career best suited to their abilities, interests, and ambitions in an educational environment characterized by high expectations and staffed by professionals who are knowledgeable, compassionate, creative, supportive, and effective. As a result, we can provide the best training that enables our students to enter or enhance their careers in the shortest amount of time without sacrificing the quality and depth of the training experience.

History and Philosophy

Hunter Business School was founded in 1972 for the purpose of providing quality career training through intensive and innovative programs. The original mission was expanded
in 1999 to include a change of ownership and new programs in medical assisting and computer technology. In keeping with this mission, we have added sonography (ultrasound), practical nursing, and web app development programs to complement Hunter Business School’s existing offerings. Hunter Business School’s mission is viewed as a living, organic expression of potential growth, but still at root remains essentially the same.
