Business Learning from Day One
Unlike most universities, at Northwood, you’ll start classes in your major on your first day. This means you can validate your interest in a major field of study early and be prepared for internships after your first year.
Within the enhanced curriculum of 120 credit hours for each major, you have more choice electives. This makes double majors or minors easier, and you can enhance your value profile with additional specializations.
Go Beyond the Classroom
Books and lectures are an important part of your business education, but hands-on experience is also valuable. Gain professional workplace skills, make contacts and reinforce your classroom experience with an internship.
Freedom Project is a three-credit-hour, personalized, multi-year project in a custom area of study.
The Freedom Project allows you to pursue a personal business opportunity, service learning, research or a global impact project.
This intensive course of study for serious scholars lets you enter college as a freshman and graduate four years later with both your bachelor’s and Master of Business Administration degrees.
Honors Program participants benefit from smaller class sizes, membership in the Student Honors Association, invitations to exclusive events and recognition on their diplomas and transcripts.
