Preparing for Finals

Finals Week is less than two weeks away. Your student’s final exams will occur between Monday, December 10, and Thursday, December 13, 2012. Many families want to know when their student’s last final is in order to make travel arrangements for winter break. Encourage your student to review each of the syllabi received during the first week of classes to determine his/her specific finals week schedule. A general schedule also can be found on the Office of the Registrar’s webpage.

The Student Learning Centers have timely and relevant workshops throughout the year to help students succeed academically. Your son or daughter might benefit from the one-hour Final Exam Preparation Strategies workshops offered November 27-29. This workshop teaches students strategies on how to review a large amount of material and how to devise a study schedule for finals. Encourage your student to contact the Student Learning Centers today to sign up!

Accelerated MBA Program For Military Students

The Accelerated MBA Program is offered in two, full-time formats: 10-months for students with an undergraduate business degree and a similar accelerated format for students with a non-business degree. The format was created, in part, to accommodate active military and veteran students who require the accelerated format due to deployment schedules and/or benefit restrictions.

Military Friendly Schools

NAU is one of the top 15% of schools nationwide that deliver the best experience for military students, according to Military Friendly Schools® .

The MBA program has been recognized by The Princeton Review in the 2013 Edition of The Best 296 Business Schools, listed as one of the top 74 business schools in the Western United States.

Early Career MBA is designed for recent college graduates who are seeking their first professional position and early-career professionals with limited work experience, who are seeking a career change.

The MBA program is part of the Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP), which provides in-state tuition rates to residents of 14 western states. Our program is the only MBA included in the WRGP.
