A public university with rich tradition and dedicated professors. It's reputation will proceed itself, even years after graduation.

Great college! My husband and I met there. We paid off our loans within the first 18 months. We received the same degree and passed the same exam at a fraction of the cost.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2010

I loved the campus and the professors! The business school (specifically accounting) is very well respected in the industry and there are so many opportunites after graduating. I miss it!
1.2 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2006

The classes were taught by lifelong professors who didn't have any real life business experience. I dont find it helpful having an MBA.

Degree: Physical Education
Graduation Year: 2017

NIU's PETE is great! There are a lot of alumni that are always willing to connect with current students. I just started my secondary clinical rotation and was nervous going in, thinking I had no idea what I was doing. After teaching a few classes, my cooperating teacher was very impressed and I know that I have the great faculty at NIU to thank for that!

Degree: Public Health

I thoroughly enjoyed my college experience at Northern Illinois University. I am now trying to pursue my Master's Degree in Nursing with the University of San Francisco. They have a program that will allow my Bachelors Degree with Non-Nursing to help in furthering my education.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2020

This program is exceptional! The professors are wonderful and the course work is spot on. Teachers are willing to go above and beyond classroom instruction for their students. Plenty of opportunity for extracurricular work. Graduate assistants are fantastic!
4.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2007

Over the course of my career, I have experienced how quickly change can occur. I am currently pursuing my MBA from Northern Illinois University, I am confident that an MBA from NIU will put me on the fast track to career advancement by offering me the chance to develop a wide range of general business knowledge and the opportunity to expand my personal network. I am confident that at the end of this program, I will walk away a more developed professional and a greater leader that can offer so much more to the work environment.
