Get real world experience while studying for a Business Administration degree
Every college teaches knowledge, but we live in the information age and can google anything at any given point in the day. Most business schools today are still rooted in lecture style formation of education, but at North Central University we know that you need real world business experience. In addition to academic rigor, NCU College of Business & Technology (COBAT) focuses on teaching collaboration, creativity, communication, and critical thinking. With a Business Administration degree from NCU, you’ll enter the professional workplace ready to take on real world challenges.
Because we prioritize active learning, our graduates are getting a ton more experience early on, which leads to greater internship opportunities, and ultimately greater career choices. Due to our smaller campus size, every student is seen, not being lost in the crowd. Our students are provided the chance to make awesome connections.
Every professor brings to the classroom exceptional business experience. In addition to having wildly successful careers prior to teaching, our business professors are still actively engaged in the real world as consultants or business owners. This makes a huge difference in what is taught in NCU business classrooms.
Unique classroom experiences ensure NCU graduates gain knowledge and practice.
Students take on professional projects building confidence and their resumes.
Small classes means professors know your name and classmates become lifelong friends.

I love Business Administration because the small class sizes allow for personal relationships to be built with my professors who care about my growth and potential. The business program helps students directly transition into the professional environment and helps to open up opportunities in various fields post-college.
The Do Something Initiative, created by COBAT for the purpose of students going above and beyond learning about their major and disciple, is a four-year track.
Within this initiative, students not only partner with a mentor but select different opportunities within their specific track to further their goals. These opportunities come in an array of options from attending conferences, and networking events, to completing informational interviews as well as student athletics.
When students have completed the Do Something Initiative, they are not only more aware of their career opportunities, but of various industries and sectors within their targeted paths around the world.
North Central University is a university that prioritizes experiential learning for its students. The College of Business and Technology showcases that through the Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The IIE is a community in which creativity, hard work, as well as experience collide to form not only a unique college experience but professional opportunities in the workplace.
One leg of the IIE supports budding entrepreneurs, helping to launch their own personal business dreams. Students are coached and mentored on a one-on-one basis as they dream, conceive, fund, and promote their own company. Where most business colleges might support the launch of only one or two businesses in a year, the IIE has been a part of the creation, collaboration, and culmination of dozens of new businesses.
The other leg of the institute is the agency. The agency is a place where companies can turn to resources. These resources, completely student-run, range from bookkeeping to marketing, as well as operations, to name a few. Our students get to work with real clients on real issues and get paid for their incredible work.
