"I’m in the Business Administration program at NOVA because I enjoy numbers. I’m intrigued by the study of how corporations develop financial analyses and the ways people spend and invest their money.
Attending NOVA has taught me that community colleges are a smart financial move. You don’t have to stress about expenses. You can take your core credits and transfer them to a four-year institution. There are a lot of notable colleges and universities in Virginia that you can transfer to from NOVA. It’s a win-win situation."
