    The Northwood Idea

    You know we focus on business, but what makes Northwood University unique? What programs does Northwood offer that no other school does? Why should students attend a school that focuses on a business-related curriculum‚ versus a school that offers business as one option among many? Find out the answers to these questions. Learn about the Northwood Idea.

    High Expectations Lead to High Performance

    A university education is more than the courses offered and the experiences made available. It is the architecture of those elements designed to create defined results. As a learning community, we focus our efforts on accomplishing twelve outcomes. These outcomes become shared characteristics of our graduates.
