One of the Best Business Decisions She Ever Made.

Radhika Janardanan wanted to move into a new role at Microsoft and realized an MBA would help. Radhika enrolled in NU’s MBA program because it offered the courses she needed and was designed for students working full-time. Eventually, Radhika landed that new role at Microsoft and graduated with an MBA. “I tell people to really consider NU. When you look at all aspects—the cost, the flexibility, the quality—it’s a great choice.”
