HGBJ - Horizons Global Business Journal

Horizons University

About Us



Horizons University began offering classes in 1998, the first university in Europe to be completely online. Developed with the vision of providing “Education for Everyone, Everywhere,” Horizons’ approach was to offer a 1:1 faculty student ratio, with each student taught individually by highly qualified professors from all over the world.  Today, Horizons’ programs include the Ph.D., DBA, MBA, M.A., M.Ed., and BBA in fields including business, entrepreneurship, leadership, cross-cultural communication, education, and French.  Our faculty—100 per cent—hold doctorates in their fields, and Horizons programs are accredited by ACBSP, ECBE and FEDE.

Because Horizons University recognizes the increased importance for students to begin productive careers as researchers, the HGBJ was incepted to offer graduate students first-hand experience in the academic publishing process, and a medium for sharing their work with the greater learning community. Beginning in 2017, all doctoral students have been required to publish an article in the journal, following the publication standards practiced by all leading academic journals.

Since then, Horizons has expanded its reach to the academic community at-large, inviting experienced, as well as new, scholars to showcase their work in fields such as leadership, entrepreneurship, management, finance, and economics, all of which incorporate an international or intercultural perspective.  Offered in both electronic and print formats, Horizons Global Business Journal reflects the goal of enlightening, empowering, and encouraging academic scholarship in areas which impact today’s globalized work environment in the most significant ways.
