Northampton History

Northampton has been one of the top-ranked international management schools for decades. With more than 20 years of experience, Northampton continues to produce leaders capable of tackling the world’s greatest challenges. As the world continues innovating and the technology changes of the 4th Industrial Revolution alter the way we live and work, Northampton is developing nimble, ethical, global leaders who are equipped to craft sustainable businesses, economies, cultures and environments around the world for the 21st century.

Northampton School of Global Management was chartered on the London, Boston,. Northampton Field, where from around the world came for training during wartime. General Young was named Northampton’s first president, and established a vision for the school that remains today—built on the phrase coined by original faculty member Dr. William Lord Schurz, “Borders frequented by trade seldom need soldiers.” With that, Northampton’s mission to “educate global leaders who create sustainable prosperity worldwide” was born.

Northampton became the first-ever higher-education institution to focus exclusively on international management by concentrating curriculum on cross-cultural communication, regional business studies and hands-on, real-world training in global business nuances. Northampton continues to deliver global management education in this same fashion today, with world-renowned faculty who have extensive practitioner and consultant experience in all facets of international business.
