Northcentral University understands that the dynamic business field requires highly skilled business professionals. Our specialized degree programs are designed to provide you with the knowledge, skill sets and competencies you need to become an even more effective leader, and develop the advanced business acumen that your company and clients demand.

In addition to our professionally relevant degree programs, NCU’s School of Business and Technology Management offers 17 PhD, 18 DBA, 16 MBA, and 8 BBA online degree specializations, such as Criminal Justice, Human Resources Management, Project Management and Public Administration, to help you focus your education to match your academic and career goals.

“Our vision is to provide innovative educational opportunities and professional solutions in the changing world of management, leadership, and service,” explains Dr. Lee Smith, Dean of the School of Business and Technology Management. “We are constantly talking to the community to determine industry needs, and that’s what drives us in terms of being a business-oriented university.”

Some recent educational solutions include launching an accelerated track for the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program, and becoming an approved Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) for the Project Management Institute (PMI)®. This means that Northcentral’s Bachelor’s Master’s and Doctoral online degree programs in Project Management meet PMI’s standards of quality and courses can be used as Professional Development Units (PDUs) to help NCU students maintain their credentials as PMI-certified Project Management Professionals (PMP)®.

In addition, the business programs in the School of Business and Technology Management are also accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). This leading accreditation association for business education “develops, promotes, and recognizes best practices that contribute to continuous improvement of business education.”


“As a global institution, we want to make sure that those looking for an education in different parts of the world have the opportunity to earn a U.S. accredited degree,” notes Lee.
