About Hesser College

At Hesser College, it is our mission to provide a high-quality, student-oriented, career-focused, affordable learning experience. We place high value on hands-on, employment-related skill building. Combining general education, business, and professional career specialty course offerings, Hesser College can prepare graduates to succeed in an increasingly competitive employment marketplace.

Founded as Hesser Business College in Manchester, New Hampshire in 1900, Hesser College continues to follow the principle of providing individual encouragement and assistance to all students instilled by its founder, Joel H. Hesser.

Hesser began to expand its educational services beyond the city of Manchester in 1975 when the first extension campus was opened in Nashua, New Hampshire. In the decades that followed, additional campuses were opened in Portsmouth, Salem, and Concord.

Today, Hesser College is proud to be part of Kaplan Higher Education Corporation, which provides diversified, career-oriented, postsecondary educational programs. As part of such a prestigious company, Hesser College continues to provide the same excellent education for which it is known and upon which it was founded.
