Faculty and Research
Our scholars and professionals will help you develop skills to excel in life, the community and around the world.
PNW has created networking opportunities and professional relationships that I am grateful for, with mentors that are wonderful role models.
I have been able to apply what I learned in my classes to my internships. During my time in the program, I've gotten career experience outside of school, working with the Art Institute of Chicago, CareerBuilder and Albanese Confectionery. I already feel prepared for graduating with my Human Resources Management degree in May 2020.
I’ve had some of the best professors. They have been supportive, uplifting and inspiring. They’ve been my biggest support throughout my experience here at PNW and are always willing to go the extra mile to help us students.
