The Northeastern Advantage
Our Delivery Model
Northeastern faculty members in online- and hybrid-based programs integrate their deep theoretical knowledge with strong professional experience. Using the technology tools that have made online education a rich learning environment, they draw from a wide array of resources that enable students to apply new knowledge directly to the problem-solving needs of the workplace.
Our hybrid format—the blending of online and classroom learning—offers students the best of both worlds: the flexibility and convenience of online education and the personal, faculty and peer interaction of classroom-based programs. Most hybrid courses alternate meeting on-campus with online assignments so students can maximize learning on a schedule for working professionals. View our hybrid programs here.
Northeastern offers more than 100 online degree and certificate programs. The university’s portfolio of online graduate programs—in business, government, education, healthcare, leadership and management, and science and technology—is among the largest of any private research university in the U.S. View our entire online portfolio here.
Northeastern is making the virtual classroom more dynamic, connected, and real by integrating the professional workplace in online and hybrid degree programs. Working with learning experts and industry partners, Northeastern is the first university to create an online education model that is driven by cognitive science, informed by employers, and powered by experiential learning.
Our global network of nearly 3,000 employers provides students in our online programs with rich opportunities for real-world understanding—through collaboratively developed curricula, cooperative education placements and corporate residencies, case studies, and special projects.
This best-in-class model gives students unmatched insight into their studies—a professional perspective that prepares them to lead, and not just keep up.
