Executive Director's Message

A Message from Tom Stewart

There are many factors that cause the business world to change; technological advances; process and efficiency improvements; or generational diversity of five generations in the workforce at once…Nichols College leadership recognizes this and it’s our job to prepare you for it. That’s why we strategically anticipate challenges and apply them into your curriculum. The first time you face these challenges should not be in your profession, it should be here where you can learn from field tested faculty!

Our advanced professional degrees and programs prepare you for success in a highly competitive workforce. We listen to what industry leaders want in their graduates. Our strong alumni network, partners, and our own GPS Advisory Council are business leaders and public service professionals that help inform our academic direction.

The sooner you enroll in our program, the sooner you’ll graduate. Wherever you are in your life and career, this is doable. The Hyflex learning platform is easy to use and allows you to be anywhere in the world and remotely attend class one night a week with fellow students. Our faculty bring relevant industry experience to the classroom at a pace and flexibility that fits all. Our goal is to provide you skills and knowledge that you can apply the very next day at work using a curriculum created through industry leaders input.

Join us for a class and witness the Nichols difference. Be part of our family, and network with our talented alumni. We would love to show you around our beautiful campus in Dudley, MA or meet with you virtually to discuss your goals and how we can help you attain them. Contact us now so we can help bring about the change you’re looking for in your career and your life.

Once again, the sooner you enroll, the sooner you graduate.
