No. If you have work experience, that's great, but you don't need it. Nexford's programs are practical, which means you'll gain on-the-job skills while you learn. If you do have work experience, we won't be able to offer credit just yet. We want everyone to start their program on a level playing field – that includes taking the same core courses and building the same foundational skills.

How do I get my degree authenticated?

Nexford graduates are just as qualified as any traditional university degree holder, and they’re also likely to have more relevant competencies. The kind that modern employers urgently require. Our academic programs are designed based on industry and employment needs. We align with real employers to equip you with the skills to thrive in today’s workplace.

If you’ll like to get your Nexford degree authenticated, please request an ‘official true copy of the credentials’ you’d like to have authenticated from registrar@nexford.org. Once you receive the copy, follow the process outlined here by the US State Department to get them authenticated for use in your home country.

Nexford can also handle the authentication process on your behalf for a non-refundable processing fee of US$100. For this service, please contact us at registrar@nexford.org

In some cases, you may also need to get your credentials authenticated by your country’s embassy in Washington, DC. To find out, you will have to check with your country’s embassy in Washington, DC.

Once you receive our authenticated documents, Nexford is unable to help with any further authentication in your home country. You’ll need to handle any local processes on your own.

If you need assistance, please contact the Nexford Registrar at registrar@nexford.org

Download our step-by-step guide to understand what you need to do to complete your Nexford application and give yourself the best chance of acceptance.

Can I apply for a bachelor’s program if I haven't graduated from high school yet?

In most cases, you'll need to have graduated from high school before you can apply for your BBA. If you haven't graduated from high school yet, you may want to take the General Education Development certificate (GED). Get in touch to see what we can do: help@nexford.org

Can I apply for an MBA if I don't have a university degree?

You'll need an undergraduate degree to apply for the MBA program. Nexford University accept applications globally. We understand that your qualification may not specifically say that you hold a bachelor's degree in your country, but it may be equivalent to a US Bachelor's degree. We'll be happy to have your credential reviewed! Get in touch with our Admissions team to know if you are qualified: admissions@nexford.org

 

However, your degree or qualification doesn't need to be in business.

 

If you have a degree in another discipline, you'll take four 6-8 week Business Foundation courses. Here, you'll learn the baseline business skills you need for our broader MBA. Upon successful completion, start taking MBA core courses.

 

If you have studied business before, you'll enter straight into the MBA and start taking your core courses.

How is online learning different from learning on campus?

Good question. You might be used to learning in a classroom, on campus: but online learning isn't that different. With the learning experience at Nexford, you'll still be able to chat with other learners, faculty and your success advisor, and thanks to video calling it feels as good as face to face learning.

You'll learn in many different ways: live engagements, discussion forums, case studies, flashcards, videos, blog posts and news articles. There's always something to keep you engaged.

Many learners feel like they're more productive when they're learning online. They get the freedom to log on when they want, and they're not tied to fixed schedules (have you ever sat in an 8am lecture, half asleep?). Instead, they can log on when and where it suits them, and learn just the right amount of information.

Do you have a physical campus?

We're 100% online, so we don't have a campus! Our learners are our priority, which means we let you invest in your future – not a costly campus. (Affordability is our biggest mission!)

How flexible is Nexford?

Very flexible! You'll have eight weeks to finish each course, and in that time you can learn exactly when it suits you. Log in before work or on the train home, or complete a module after the kids have gone to bed. There are no fixed times so you really can learn when you want to. And, because you can learn on any device, your learning can be as mobile as you are.
