About Franklin University

Today, Franklin has grown into the second-largest private university in the state of Ohio. Annually, we serve nearly 10,000 students from across the country and around the world.
As an accredited, student-centered leader in online learning, Franklin University offers respected, in-demand undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Classes are taught online and at numerous Midwest locations, and our MBA has broad international reach.
