Students in the College of Business gain business skills and knowledge within the context of a Christian perspective. Students are prepared to serve as leaders, managers and social entrepreneurs in a variety of business and organizational settings.
All students take a series of core courses in the fundamentals of economics, accounting, management, marketing and finance before they focus on advanced major courses. They can then choose among four business majors: Business Administration, Finance & Accounting, Management and Marketing. All students finish the program with an internship experience that allows them to apply business theory to the workplace and build their own professional network.
Classes are taught by dedicated Christian professors who have real world experience in business and advanced degrees in their discipline. They are able to explain theories and concepts that relate to business practices so that students are able to move directly from graduation into a business career.
Northwest University Business programs are accredited by the Accreditation Council of Business Schools and Programs. Accreditation standards are modeled on the Baldrige National Quality Program. This recognition assures students and employers that Northwest University Business Programs use the same standards as those used by businesses, health care providers, and others to recognize excellence. More information about ACBSP Accreditation can be found at http://www.acbsp.org.
Note: The Accounting major is a new program and is not yet included in ACBSP accreditation. Criminal Justice is not a recognized business program under ACBSP.
Each spring, business seniors and graduating MBA students at Northwest University take a nationally-ranked comprehensive exam. The 2015 exam from Peregrine Academic Services assesses critical knowledge and understanding in business. View 2015 Assessment Summary »
