NNU recently received a $10,000 grant from the Wells Fargo Foundation to support the University’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) program expansion in Twin Falls, Idaho. Wells Fargo designated the funds for the purchase of technology that will support the delivery of “real-time” classroom instruction from any satellite location or campus in the NNU network.

In the academic setting, technology has dramatically reshaped the way students learn and faculty teach. In addition, the growth of the Internet and online learning has created many opportunities for NNU to reach a larger number of students locally, throughout Idaho and around the globe. The University will leverage these opportunities with the development of satellite campuses in the Northwest.

NNU’s Vice President for University Advancement Joel Pearsall expressed his thanks on behalf of the University, saying, ”This generous donation will further enhance the reach of the University’s graduate programs to an increasing number of Idaho students who desire a high-quality, graduate-level education. The Foundation’s support is a valued resource as NNU seeks to maintain and advance the quality of each student’s experience.”

The Twin Falls satellite campus will also offer graduate classes in Social Work.
