The Bachelor of Science in Business Management degree program may be completed at Northwest either by attending traditional campus-based classes or by participating in Northwest's Web-based online degree program. Northwest has entered into several articulation agreements with community colleges in Missouri, Colorado, Iowa, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Kansas. If a student has not completed an AAS degree in business from an articulated community college program, the student will need to work closely with a Northwest advisor in business management to determine the best course of action to take in order to achieve their academic goals.
