“I was a police officer, FBI agent and then a corporate security manager. Northcentral was the only school, when I started six years ago, that offered a doctoral program in my field of study. They fit my work schedule, they fit everything that I wanted to learn, and it was a reasonable tuition. It was all around the best school for me.” – Walter N. Clements, PhD in Business Administration (2016)
