I knew that if I wanted to move up in my career, I needed to finish my education. Northwest University allowed me to work fulltime and still attend school one night a week. Earning credits for Life Studies was also a plus. My experience at Northwest was so positive, I stayed to pursue my MBA. I truly do feel that Northwest University is the University of Possibility. It has been for me.
Catherine Jensen, Business Major

Joshua Meeks was a full-time carpenter with an overtime life. He wasn't sure how he'd ever have time to get his Bachelor's degree in business. Since enrolling in NU's business management program, Joshua has been promoted four times—most recently to a supervisory position with benefits and an eventual company truck. "The things I've learned in the business program at night are directly applicable to my job. And my supervisors have noticed."
