A Degree From Embry-Riddle Worldwide is Your Ticket to a Career in Louisville
Embry-Riddle is the world’s pre-eminent university for aviation and aerospace education. However, our dynamic, hands-on programs will prepare you for a career in many industries, not just ones in the skies.
Our Embry-Riddle Louisville Campus — located near Louisville International Airport — offers associate, bachelor’s, and master’s degree programs, as well as undergraduate certifications, that will help you achieve a higher position in your current company or make you an attractive job candidate in a new business or field.
A degree from Embry-Riddle Worldwide will give you the skills you need for success in many of Louisville's' top industries, including:
Imagine being part of a defense contracting team that builds the F-35 Lightning — one of the world’s top military aircraft — or guided missile systems used by the U.S. Armed Forces.
Embry-Riddle Worldwide offers several programs that can put you on the front lines of designing and building the tools that keep our nation safe, including:Degrees Offered at Worldwide Related to the Field
The Louisville Fire Department, founded in 1858, now employs more than 500 men and women.

Health care is one of the nation's biggest industries, and Louisville's second- and third-largest employers are health-care companies. Skills like risk assessment and managerial accounting learned in our management programs will make you a strong manager in any field, including health care.Degrees Offered at Worldwide Related to the Industry
Our Worldwide Campus has been working with U.S. military service members since 1970, helping them to earn a degree while on active duty or as veterans. And we do it at more than 90 military installations around the globe.
Become a Commissioned Officer
Nearly all military commissioned officers hold college degrees. Many do so before entering the armed forces after attending a service academy, a military college, or a university with a Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program.
For enlisted service members who did not enter the military as an officer, Embry-Riddle Worldwide is here to help you achieve your goal of getting into Officer Candidate School (OCS) or Officer Training School (OTS) and becoming a commissioned officer.
Our flexible course delivery methods allow service members to take courses that accommodate your military duties and family life. Those serving can attend courses in a classroom, via recorded or real-time video conferencing online, or through a blend of modes.
As a Veteran
Entering the civilian workforce after completing service to your country can be a daunting task. However, Embry-Riddle Worldwide is here to help you earn a college degree and become an attractive job candidate in the field of your choice.
Service members can earn a degree while on active duty thanks to Worldwide’s flexible modes of instruction, as well as government tuition assistance for the military.
Then, once you trade in your G.I. boots for dress shoes, you can hit the post-military ground running by being able to list “college graduate” on your résumé.
As a Spouse or Civilian Working with the Military
Not everyone working at a military base is member of the armed services. Service members' families and civilian base employees are also an important part of the Louisville military community.
Military spouses can take advantage of their proximity to an Embry-Riddle Worldwide facility by taking classes at our Louisville Campus. Additional financial assistance is also available under the Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts for spouses who seek certification or an associate degree in an occupation that may be available regardless of where a service member is stationed.
Other civilians — whether they are employed on base or not — can improve their job prospects by earning a degree at our Louisville Campus.
