Nobel University was founded in the summer of 2000 in Los Angeles, California. Committed to producing quality practitioners of Oriental Medicine, the University began by offering the Master of Science in Oriental Medicine program (MSOM).
In 2003, the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education approved the University to offer a certificate program in English as a Second Language (ESL), and in 2004 it was approved to offer the Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration (BA) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) programs. In 2006, the University added the Bachelor of Arts in Church Music program (BCM). In 2009, a branch campus of the University was established in Buena Park, California to accommodate the growing student body.
In 2013, Nobel University shifted its strategic plan and its focus by concentrating exclusively on its business program offerings. Since Nobel University no longer provides the Certificate in English as a Second Language, Bachelor of Arts in Church Music, and Master of Science in Oriental Medicine programs, the University is able to specialize in the business education and deliver world-class education to its students.
In 2015, Nobel University was accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) to award the master's and bachelor's degrees at both campuses.
