What I loved the best about [NNU's] professors is they were experts in their field. Generally, you might get a professor at other schools that they teach—they enjoy teaching, but never have actually had real world experience, and that wasn't the case. For business law, we had a lawyer. For accounting, we had a guy that was in finance and accounting firm… My last professor… had 20-plus years of experience in management.
