Northcentral University was founded in 1996 with the goal of offering higher education to working professionals around the world, and today is a proud affiliate of the private, nonprofit National University System based in La Jolla, California.
With no physical residency requirements and weekly start dates, courses are taught one-to-one by an NCU professor with a doctoral degree. NCU’s unique one-to-one learning model is founded on the proven power of mentoring, ensuring a rigorous academic environment that is both personalized and professionally relevant.
According to a 2018 Gallup study on NCU’s alumni, our graduates report that they are deeply interested in the work they do, tend to be more engaged in their workplace, and have overall stronger career outcomes. Many also become more involved in their communities by volunteering or participating in public service since completing their program. View the complete Gallup study.
