The FXUA approach to higher education is centered around five core values: peace, development, community, character, and stewardship. Our expertly designed business and technology undergraduate programs are complemented by unique career and life competency skills, providing you with a marketable degree in a changing world. Our goal is to ensure that you are taught by educated practitioners, not only academic theorists, and provided with near limitless access to national and international leaders in their field, throughout your entire academic journey. Long before you graduate, you will have shaped several new prosperous roads that lead to lifelong career success – guided and mentored step-by-step by some of the very best our learning community has to offer.

The FXUA “Learning to Be” curriculum provides each student with transformative learning and leadership tools to ensure competency, proficiency, expertise, and eventual mastery to take the challenges of life and turn them into opportunities with solutions. In addition, embedded within the FXUA curriculum are micro-credentials (MCs). These stackable competency and skills-based certifications allow earners to showcase learning outcomes mastered during their educational or professional journey. MCs are affordable, flexible, and brief, providing earners with the opportunity to acquire – or further develop – competencies and skills that align with their educational needs and industry demands.

The entire FXUA student-centered lifecycle ensures, from the first day, every student develops the necessary tools to reap a productive professional career. In addition, to show our confidence in our approach and our commitment to the betterment of society, we are providing a substantial yet limited number of full-tuition scholarships.

Letter from the President

My name is Dr. Ahmed Alwani. As the president of Fairfax University of America, let me be the first to welcome you to our university – where we are guided by the five core values of peace, development, community, character, and stewardship.

Our vision is inspired by a holistic view of the world, providing our students with the structure, competency and tools to prepare them for career success, personal growth, and a social consciousness that leads to human fulfillment, connectedness, world citizenship and the betterment of society. Our approach begins with personal growth and development, employing critical thinking and evidence-based reasoning to innovatively design creative, systemic solutions to complex real-world issues.

Under the guidance of a principled and transformative senior leadership team, a community of expert faculty, and a knowledgeable and passionate professional staff, we have crafted a state-of-the-art curriculum and developed novel programs and services focused on student success in academics, career, and human development. Our students are supported from initial contact through lifelong learning, yet they are also challenged to utilize their earned and lived competence in business and technology to contribute to a world that aims to achieve harmony and balance.


Our University is Guided by Five Core Values


the foundations on which we build prosperity and human fulfillment


the process by which we reach our potential as human beings and societies


a sense of belonging to something bigger than ourselves – be it global, national or local


the expectation that all leaders should make brave decisions in good faith and in a principled way


a sense of responsibility and care toward all people and things that depend on us

Our Programs

Our programs are structured to allow students great flexibility in the design and direction of their own studies. To keep pace with the latest developments in technology and teaching, our curriculum and materials are regularly reviewed and revised, and our instructors receive further training, as necessary.
