Affordability of higher education has prompted much discussion in recent years. It’s a key question for parents and students as they determine where to spend their higher education time and dollars. Our ongoing desire to demonstrate a strong return on investment (ROI) has been rewarded recently with several national rankings that prove an education at Northwood University is a good investment. Here’s our current 2015 list:
- Best Value Business School by PayScale, an organization with the largest salary profile database in the world. PayScale ranked Northwood 4th in the country among independent business schools.
- Best Online Programs Bachelor's in Accounting by BestColleges.com. Northwood’s online accounting program earned a 3rd place ranking.

These accomplishments are about a lot more than tuition. The variety and depth of these rankings is a result of several factors: quality of our academic programs; learning in a safe environment; innovative course delivery methods (in person and online); experiential learning opportunities; quality of our industry expert faculty; and the entrepreneurial and financial success of our graduates.
We owe a debt of gratitude to staff, faculty, alumni, friends and supporters who each have a part in helping Northwood University stand out. Most important is our students. They have taken their individual responsibility seriously. Through their drive, passion, energy, and enthusiasm they become “leaders of a global free enterprise society”.
But we are not resting on our successes. As we continue “Driving Northwood University Forward,” we expect to deliver a strong ROI as we continue to strive to be the premier business school based on free enterprise.
Have a great weekend.
