The mission of Northwood University is to prepare qualified undergraduate and graduate learners of any age or station with the tools, skills, and intellectual capacities for productive leadership careers in a global economic network of free markets and private enterprise. The University emphasizes experiential learning and innovation at graduate and undergraduate levels for both traditional and non-traditional students. Through general education and focused discipline study, learners are prepared for varied management careers. Additionally, its programs emphasize:
the dynamics of a free enterprise society in which management and entrepreneurial skills predominate and where individuals can take risk for individual and common good and gain,
the aesthetic, creative, and spiritual elements of life and their relative importance to living in the fullest sense, and
the global, diverse, and multi-cultural nature of enterprise.
Northwood is a special purpose university with a defined philosophy about management education that guides almost everything we do. We call it The Northwood Idea. There are many ways of expressing The Northwood Idea, but this is one way that might give you an idea of what it is we believe in.
A Northwood University education develops character, instills ethics, and creates leaders. Our faculty bring both academic credentials and real world business experience to each classroom and as a result, Northwood University provides a total learning environment fostering education, enterprise and character.
