NLU Testimonials

Antoinette Manghram, Lincoln Property Company
BOMA/Chicago Building Member
Earned MBA from NLU

NLU's class structure made my goal of seeking an advanced degree reachable, while balancing a family and a full-time job. What I valued the most about the NLU program were the once a week evening classes in downtown Chicago, small class sizes and an amazing cohort.  My MBA from NLU has not only provided job security, it's also opened up new doors that may have otherwise been unavailable. Because of my MBA, I was also able to open my own wedding planning business.

Jim Coates, Local 399
Earned BSM from NLU

I was very satisfied with the Bachelor of Science in Management (BSM) program at National Louis University. The level of rigor was challenging and NLU does a great job of blending face-to-face classes, out of class assignments and peer-to-peer communication. The BSM program was a nice mix of interpersonal skill development, finance, business communication, team building and leadership.
