NU Sets Standards for Online Learning

As a university committed to meeting the diverse needs of thousands of students, Northwood is honored to be ranked by as one of the nation’s top 20 best online programs for our Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree program. Determined by a set of data points, classified Northwood University’s program as number 17 in the United States based on acceptance, enrollment, retention and graduation rates.

Northwood stood out among 1,200 other public and non-profit universities across the nation offering courses online.

Being a business college that prides itself on providing flexible education options at all stages of higher education, our online BBA degree program is designed for working adults and long-distance learners and can be completed entirely online or in hybrid form partially on campus.

We understand each student transitions through unique stages of life, making traditional college settings impractical at times. Through experiential learning and innovative online programs, non-traditional learners are able to gain the same benefits as those who attend classes on campus, all while keeping on top of other obligations.

By mixing traditional and non-traditional learning models, NU consistently sets standards as an online and face-to-face institution. This flexibility permits us to develop a range of scholars into future leaders of a global, free-enterprise society. We are proud to be ranked among the nation’s top online business programs and plan to continue offering these convenient degree options for our students.

Have a great weekend!
