Four New Degree Programs Launched by Northcentral University


In a bid to woo non-traditional students and ensure program flexibility and accessibility, Northcentral University (NCU) has announced the start of four new graduate degree programs with 100 percent online curriculum.

The programs, which are targeting professionals interesting in shifting or growing their career, will be offered within its School of Business.

“A core part of our approach to graduate education is ensuring that barriers related to a traditional university environment don’t prevent busy working professionals from continuing their education,” Kelley Walters, PhD, Dean of the School of Business, said.

“Each of these new programs implements those principles through weekly rolling start dates and a one-hundred percent online approach, with no residency requirements.”

The university is offering Master of Public Administration, Master of Human Resource Management, Doctor of Public Administration and Doctor of Philosophy in Human Resource Management.

“The demand for public administration and human resource management professionals is expected to grow over the next ten years,” Dr. Walters said. “That’s why these programs are a natural fit for Northcentral University students, who are often looking for educational options that meaningfully further their careers.”

The programs, which are based on 1:1 teaching model, will start offering admissions from October 2018.
