Our Approach

Our Approach

Northwood University isn’t your typical, accredited higher education institution. We’re decidedly different. Teaching business is our business. American free enterprise and an emphasis on the importance of ethics and values in business guides all that we do, inside the classroom and in the world around us.

This philosophy, the Northwood Idea, teaches students at all levels that true success in business and life is achieved through responsibility, experience, teamwork and integrity.

What’s more, our faculty and facilitators are more than subject-matter experts. They‘ve worked (or are still working) in the field just like you and your employees. And, they take their real-world experience and combine it with traditional case-based learning methods that replicate the kinds of situations you and your employees face every day.

Your workers get real-life advice and hands-on learning that develops their skills so they can grow into new roles and move your company ahead. Plus, they can learn in flexible ways that best fit their schedules and educational needs.
