Northeastern University’s experiential learning model is based on a century-long tradition of partnership with businesses and nonprofit organizations around the world.
Today, these partnerships include more than 2,900 employers in 92 countries, providing a strong foundation for the university’s graduate campuses.
But this level of global engagement does more than support innovative programs like cooperative education. It is in Northeastern’s institutional DNA and connects our teaching, research, and the content of our degree programs to society’s changing needs and interests.
Experiential learning transforms “global” and “innovative” from concepts to actions, and makes entrepreneurship—not just the founding of new businesses, but the development of new processes—a core value of the university.
Experiential learning makes our students, our faculty, and our degree programs more dynamic and interactive.
Experiential learning—an education engaged with the world—enriches all of our graduate programs, with or without a co-op experience.
