New Adult Degree Program & DeVos Center


Northwood University opened the doors to a new state of the art facility in Troy, Michigan on March 21. The launch was the culmination of Northwood’s efforts to continue to provide dynamic programming and learning environments to aspiring business leaders throughout Southeast Michigan. The new center is located at 1500 West Big Beaver Road in Troy. According to Keith A. Pretty, president and CEO of Northwood University, “This dynamic new facility will serve a diverse group of graduate and nontraditional undergraduate business students throughout the region in our efforts to further develop the future leaders of a global free-enterprise society. Furthermore, sharing this facility with a comprehensive financial services firm like Rehmann made great business sense. We have enjoyed working with this organization throughout the years and placing graduates of our business programs in the company.”

This expansion in Troy further signifies Northwood University’s commitments to innovation in education and design aimed at economic, business, and community success. The 8,000 square foot center features innovative classroom technologies, executive conference space, and an extensive pod learning environment aimed to drive student and faculty interaction which will result 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 Dr. Lisa Fairbairn, dean of Northwood’s Richard 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 stated.
