College of Business Vision Launch
College of Business Mission Statement
The mission of the College of Business is to develop high-character, competent, and skilled business leaders who serve and thrive in the workplace through the integration of faith and learning.
Northwest University Business programs are accredited by the Accreditation Council of Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). 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.
At the heart of ACBSP is the vision to accredit quality business programs. The College of Business is committed to advancing this vision and providing business programs that align with accreditation standards and drive student achievement. We desire for students to feel valued from the point of enrollment to graduation, and we are doing all we can to ensure students are equipped with the character, competence, and skills to advance their calling in business.

A sales focus in any field will help the student improve their career options and opportunities. The concentration in Professional Sales is designed to help the student prepare for positions in sales and customer service. Activities are grounded in practical exercises of B2B selling, solution selling, role play, and challenger sales. A sales internship is included in the Professional Sales concentration program.
