Praise for NIU's Global MBA

"Thumbs up! The Fast-Trak is a stellar program. The double degree program offers a great education at a reasonable price, and a top choice for anyone considering an MBA. For the price, the quality education, the international experience, the opportunity to meet highly motivated individuals, and to earn two Masters degrees in only twelve months, it will be hard for another university to top this program."
