Northeastern University’s cooperative education (co-op) program, founded over a century ago, is one of the largest and most innovative in the world. Students alternate semesters of academic study with semesters of full-time employment in positions related to their academic or career interests. Over 90% of Northeastern students participate in the co-op program and in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, and 2014 the Princeton Review ranked Northeastern 1st for “Best Internship/Career Services”.
