Reasons to Pursue your Business Degree at Northwestern

Get Equipped

We equip students to be God-honoring leaders in business and in life. Our fully-integrated business curriculum prepares our graduates to apply their talents within their field and be a light in the marketplace.

  • Business beyond textbooks. In addition to a business degree, you will also develop the character and leadership qualities needed to thrive in business by integrating biblical principles and ethics in all courses. Learning from professors active in their field, you will participate in hands-on experiences to apply concepts and develop problem-solving skills.
  • Create your path to internships and jobs. Connect with the Twin Cities business community—Fortune 500 companies, CPA firms, entrepreneurial start-ups, and nonprofits. The connections of our professors and alumni result in visits to and from local companies/firms to gain a variety of up-close-and-personal business experiences and to learn from their business leaders. Integrating classroom with the community through the required internship experience allows for exploration of the marketplace while developing business skills. Many of these internship experiences lead to a full-time job offer prior to graduation.
  • Reputation makes a difference. Our School of Business has a strong reputation for excellence among our internship collaborators. Employers consistently rate our students highly and actively recruit our students for internships and job openings.
