A Distinctive Approach

Northeastern University’s distinctive approach to integrating rigorous classroom study with real–world experience creates a far more powerful way to learn. Our students enter the workplace with up to 18 months of professional, career related experience due to their co-op and experiential learning experience. Our graduates draw upon their co-op, global, community service and research experiences to contribute critical thinking and problem solving skills that enable them to immediately contribute to the success of your organization.

Benefits: Cooperative Education

With over 100 years of experience connecting students and employers, Northeastern has developed a system that allows you to bring talented and productive students into your workplace with ease and efficiency.

This partnership offers you exposure to developing talent and a pipeline to potential full-time employees, plus:

  • A simple cost-effective way to meet human resource needs. Students are paid a wage, but do not require company benefits, such as health insurance.
  • Six-month co-op periods, so that students are able to spend time taking on  special projects and less time training or shadowing others.
  • The chance to create a flexible work environment that provides the co-op student with broad exposure to your business and people in the organization.
  • The enthusiasm, fresh perspective, and energy of talented young adults who are eager to learn.
