Our business classes regularly visit and have guest speakers from local corporations within the Twin Cities to experience a variety of business organizations—Fortune 500 companies, entrepreneurial start-ups and non-profits. Many classes utilize case studies to highlight real-world application of business principles.
All business students participate in an internship to help translate classroom lessons into practical work experience, with more than 60% of internships resulting in job offers. With campus so close to downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul, students can take advantage of opportunities in Minnesota’s thriving business and accounting industries.
At Northwestern, our small classes enable faculty to personally engage with you and pass on insights to thrive in a business environment, prepare for graduate programs, and serve the Lord in any profession.
If you have strong numerical, math, and organizational skills, desire to learn and apply practical business knowledge to help businesses, nonprofits, and other entities operate more effectively, using God's resources wisely and with integrity, and are interested in a career that offers the flexibility to work in any industry, this might be the right degree for you.

Accounting major 150 credit rule: Effective July 1, 2006, the State of Minnesota requires the completion of 150 credits to sit for the Minnesota CPA exam. A 150 credit major is not required. One option would be to complete additional credits at UNW with the addition of another major, minor, or elective credits.
You will analyze data, develop critical thinking skills, and learn to communicate effectively.
Because of my education at Northwestern, I successfully passed the CPA exam after I graduated. And being surrounded by people who loved Jesus made me the passionate Christian businessman I am today. It was the best decision I have ever made.
