We helped this carpenter build a better career.

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 management. 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 are directly applicable to my job. And my supervisors have noticed."
