Navi Beesetti, a fourth-year Management major in the College of Business spent her summer as a product manager intern at Microsoft.

The ability to manage my time and be able to work with others are two of the key skills I was able to take from my school environment and apply to my work life.

Sydney Hanson

When I first visited the university, I liked the small class sizes with the ability to get to know my professors and I really liked the campus community. All of these things helped me choose PNW. I loved the whole school.

Erik Krause

I wanted smaller class sizes, professors who knew me and cared about my education, a community atmosphere on campus and a healthy learning environment. Purdue Northwest made that happen for me.

At Purdue Northwest, the class sizes are small enough that I was able to get to know my professors. They are willing to invest in you, in your success—you’re not just a number to them.
