Elon University is home to 826 graduate students across nine programs. Located in beautiful central North Carolina, Elon offers seven full-time graduate programs: M.S. in Business Analytics, M.S. in Accounting, PA, DPT, M.A. in Higher Education, Interactive Media and Law. Two part-time programs are also offered: M.Ed. and MBA. The School of Law is located in vibrant downtown Greensboro, which serves as a hub of the judicial system in North Carolina.

Elon was founded in 1889, and its core values have remained constant throughout history: close relationships between faculty and students, a culture that supports constant innovation, and a strong sense of community. Daily events, social gatherings and sidewalk conversations are the hallmarks of this friendly and welcoming academic community.
