Northwestern College School of Commerce and Technology
Enrolling in a business program is more than an opportunity to learn about the corporate world and your future place in it—it’s a chance to network, explore your options, and grow as an individual.
The friends you meet here will become your coworkers and contacts. The instructors you learn from have ties to area businesses. And the Northwestern College name means something when it comes time to fill out your resume.
A college like ours provides great opportunities for first-time students, adult learners, and those who simply want to figure out what comes next in their lives. Because you get a solid education from the start, you can rest assured that your skills match those expected in the real working world. And because we work with area employers to determine what kinds of skills they expect from an associate’s degree in business, we tailor our programs to match.
