TROY — Northwood University will open the doors to a new state-of-the-art facility in Troy on Thursday, March 21, with an official ribbon-cutting event hosted by the mayor of Troy at 5:30 p.m.

The new center is located at 1500 West Big Beaver Road in Troy.

This event is open to prospective students, alumni and members of the business community.
 
The launch is the culmination of Northwood’s efforts to continue to provide dynamic programming and learning environments to aspiring business leaders throughout southeast Michigan.

According to Keith A. Pretty, president and CEO of Northwood University, the new facility is a prime example of the school’s continuing commitment to partnering with business and industry leaders to deliver the very best in business education.
 
“This dynamic new facility will serve a diverse group of graduate and nontraditional undergraduate business students throughout the region,” stated Pretty. “Collaborating with key business, civic and nonprofit leaders in Troy and the metro Detroit region continues to demonstrate our ongoing effort to develop the future leaders of a global free-enterprise society,” he concluded.
 
The 8,000-square-foot center features innovative classroom technologies, executive conference space and an extensive “pod” learning environment aimed at driving student and faculty interaction resulting in an exemplary student experience.
 
The Troy Center will deliver MBA courses through Northwood University’s DeVos Graduate School of Management as well as undergraduate courses for adults seeking to earn a bachelor’s degree in one of several business majors. With evening, weekend and online classes available, Northwood provides quality delivery options to students at any level of their career.
 
According to Lisa Fairbairn, dean of Northwood’s DeVos Graduate School, the center will serve the growing educational needs of leaders throughout the region and state.

“As a global business university, we need to provide current and future students with a high quality education that includes an elevated level of flexibility and the best learning environment possible,” she said.
