"Northwood University helped shape who I am not just in the career that I am going into but also who I am as a person. Northwood is very hands on, there are opportunities everywhere, and you really get what you pay for. I was not incredibly involved in high school but once I started going to Northwood, I wanted to be involved in everything. I held several leadership positions on campus from President of my sorority to being a Team Captain for the Northwood University International Auto Show. I was able to learn leadership skills inside and outside of the classroom that I used in internships and that I will be using as I am opening my own business. I highly suggest looking into Northwood University if you are business minded or a leader and want to develop yourself! Northwood also helped greatly when it came to finances and ensuring all students have a good opportunity at a great education, regardless of your financial situation. The networking opportunities are also out of this world!"

"I transfered to a satallite location for this school after receiving my associates degree from a local community college. The program I entered is primarily geared towards adults who work and members of the military. Much of the credits that I earned for my associates degree wouldn't transfer to a major school. Northwood not only accepted the most credit transfers, the admissions department also provided life experience earned credits.This allowed me to enter the program as a Junior transfer. Other schools were telling me I would basically start over with 9-12 credits that would transfer. I took 80% of my degree program online, and 20% in class on a local military base. The classes were structured for working adults. They were held at night or your were given timelines for online assignments that you could work into your life. Since the school is private, the school follows a flat rat pricing schedule. It is one price per class in person and a slightly higher price for classes online (no hidden fees). For a working adult that wants to attend a school for low cost, this is the school; especially if you qualify for Pell Grants, or want a business degree. I rented the vast majority of my books and often spent less than $200 per semester on books. Note, many of the online professors are in Michigan or Texas. The workload is heavy as the instructors must ensure that you cover all the objectives by the end of the term (8 or 16 weeks). There is a lot of homework assigned for the online classes which can demand up to three times the credit hours of your tiee to complete the work each week. Northwood does help with job placement, if you work within their system, they won't just get you a job cause you went to the school. This can be testified by the number of alumni who work worldwide. I worked with two alumni at my job before I started going to the school who spoke highly of the school. The school offers Associates, Bachalors, and Post Graduate degrees and financial aid. Pros: Scheduling, inexpensive, and great help from staff and instructors, Very Military Friendly Cons: Slow to refund overpayments/financial aid (usually third week of session), lot of homework (not really a con unless you are work adverse) The one thing i wish I had done differently at the school, was to take more classes in person. I would attend again if I had to start over."

"I am currently working towards my Masters Degree in Business at Devos Graduate School at Northwood University. So far, I am very impressed by how their program allows you to work together with the Cohort and focuses on using real life challenges to teach you. I look forward to the rest of my time here at Northwood and would recommend this program to everyone. I chose this program because of the success other business professionals in the area have had, with the same degree from Northwood."

"Love the cohort-based model! The evening availability onsite allows me to interact in person with peers, yet accommodate a full-time work schedule. The consideration of work experience in the admissions process was helpful. Staff and faculty are accessible and accommodating and the professors have a wealth of practical, real-life experience to share."

"Their career placement is a joke, their no help, advice, guidance for career area. This one person for whole school for career service if want degree this area decide which area you want because if it's entrainment your at wrong school for this sports you okays. If your older than 28 go another college you will out of place most student are 17 to 23 years of age. It's on price side, food it terrible, and will need car to to a lot place, not a lot to do their."

"Northwood University is a private business school so the focus and classes was on your degree. This was great because the teachers had backgrounds in the business world, but I would have enjoyed an experience that mixed in science, history, and other subjects."

"Pros: The professors are so helpful and accessible. They truly want their students to succeed. The tuition of the MBA program is another plus! Very reasonable! The program is case-based so it really challenges perceived view points and mindsets. Cons: Not sure if finance classes adequately prepared me. I was also expecting more diversity with respects to professional levels and nationalities and do not find that."

"The program that I am following in Florida is young, it has only 3 years. Besides that we have some good professors, professional people that follows you in every steps of your graduate career at Northwood. There is something to improve, but surely the program (Cohort driven case study) and the staff will grow by the time and will have the success that it deserves."
