Building Relationships for a Lifetime

This past weekend we celebrated with six women and men their induction into a group of more than 300 Northwood University Outstanding Business Leaders (OBL). We reserve the honor of OBL for individuals who have achieved remarkable professional and personal success. While much of the attention during our OBL events centers on the honorees and their accomplishments, students play an important role during the weekend. Please view this video of the student presenters and the newest class of OBLs. I know you will be very impressed.


At Northwood University we believe in developing well-rounded individuals whose views and opinions are formed not just by coursework, but also by real life experiences that occur outside of the classroom. Through the OBL example, our students see first-hand the reward for insisting upon high standards of responsibility, integrity, respect and ethics – all characteristics we advance at Northwood University and encourage among our learners.

Congratulations to our students and student presenters, for their work with our Outstanding Business Leaders and for taking advantage of the priceless opportunity to learn and build relationships for a lifetime.

Have a great weekend.
