"When I found out that my prior college credits would be transferable to NMU, it motivated me to take the challenge and pursue the BS degree. The courses covered prepare students to take on a loss prevention position at any retail company, as they cover all the elements necessary to do the job. Learning more about the legal aspects in LP has been especially beneficial to me, even after 19 years in the field." -Damaris Colon, Limited Brands Regional Loss Prevention Manager and NMU Senior
