Program Testimonials

"I am very pleased with my experience at Northern and would do it all over if I had to make that important decision once again. The best part of it all was that I didn't have to move away to further my education in business!"

Cade Blanchard   "When I first came to Northern, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do so I started out in generals and tried a lot of different classes. I tried a business class and really liked it. The Business teachers have been the best, they learn your name and get to know you. Plus they are all very approachable if you have questions or need extra help. I like the small campus and think that it's really neat that these professors remember you."
Cade Blanchard
"My experience at MSU-Northern not only led me into an exciting, long term career, it also ensured I was well prepared. The up-to-date knowledge and personal experience of the professors, as well as their commitment to our success, ensured that I was able to be competitive in a national professional career field. I am currently a civilian Supervisory Contracting Officer with the Department of the Navy, am responsible for multi-million dollar contracts, and have the opportunity to work just about anywhere in the country, or overseas. I am grateful not only for my education, but for the opportunities that I have been provided, due in large part to the Business Department of MSU-Northern."
