“NICC has afforded me the opportunity to utilize my hands-on past experiences while obtaining operational business tools through classroom work,” he explains. “As a non-traditional student, the flexibility, affordability, smaller class size, and a ‘work at your own’ pace, has made [NICC] a total win-win.”
