For generations, education has overlooked adult students. It’s time school caught up with the needs and realities of the twenty-first century. NAU has been teaching working adults — people with jobs, families, and other responsibilities — for several years. Over the years, we've evolved our model to keep pace with changing technology and student expectations, making it more manageable and affordable for today's student to get a traditional education.
Most importantly, the business world is constantly changing, becoming more culturally diverse and interconnected than ever before. Employees who recognize and understand different business opportunities, cultures and strategies can help a company successfully negotiate diverse situations.
NAU has made an extraordinary contribution to modern life, particularly in the areas of science, medicine, healthcare, social science, education, law and the arts. Pioneering research at the University continues to help shape the world in which we live.
The University's commitment to answering that question - and many others - continues to guide it today.
Our goal at NAU is to build on our many accomplishments to become an outstanding university institution, comparable with the very best in the world. Our students are part of an international, vibrant and intellectually stimulating community.
The University also recognises the importance of the physical environment and, as part of its commitment to a high-quality student experience; the University has recently approved a five-year programme of investment in teaching rooms, student computing, flexible social/learning facilities and improved time tabling. When you go NAU, you can be sure you’ve chosen a quality university with a notable reputation.
