In the latest in a series of suc­cesses for busi­ness and entre­pre­neur­ship edu­ca­tion at North­eastern Uni­ver­sity, the under­grad­uate busi­ness pro­gram was ranked No. 27 in the U.S. by “Busi­ness­Week” mag­a­zine. The mag­a­zine also ranked North­eastern No. 1 in the intern­ship cat­e­gory and gave it an A+ for job placement.

The quality of our aca­d­e­mics is reflected in these rank­ings,” said Peggy Fletcher, under­grad­uate asso­ciate dean at the Col­lege of Busi­ness Admin­is­tra­tion. “The under­grad­uate program’s aca­d­emic quality ranking is in the top 20 and stu­dents gave an ‘A’ in the cat­e­gory of teaching quality.”

The new “Busi­ness­Week” recog­ni­tion comes on the heels of a new ranking by “Entre­pre­neur­ship Mag­a­zine” and “The Princeton Review” that listed Northeastern’s under­grad­uate entre­pre­neur­ship pro­gram 14th in the country and 2nd in New Eng­land. A team of busi­ness stu­dents also recently won the annual Busi­ness Beanpot Com­pe­ti­tion for the fifth con­sec­u­tive year.

We have a long his­tory of offering our under­grad­u­ates the oppor­tu­nity for pro­fes­sional work expe­ri­ences in addi­tion to the Col­lege of Busi­ness Administration’s four-​​year cur­riculum,” said Thomas E. Moore, dean. “These expe­ri­en­tial learning oppor­tu­ni­ties called ‘co-​​ops’ (short for coop­er­a­tive edu­ca­tion) involve much more than tra­di­tional intern­ships. Busi­ness under­grad­u­ates can take up to three six-​​month, paid pro­fes­sional posi­tions where they can apply what they’ve learned in the class­room in the real world.”

High­lighting a legacy of 50 years of entre­pre­neur­ship edu­ca­tion at North­eastern, the Col­lege of Busi­ness Admin­is­tra­tion has recently merged with the University’s School of Tech­no­log­ical Entre­pre­neur­ship to com­bine efforts in the areas of social and tech­no­log­ical entre­pre­neur­ship, family busi­ness and franchising.

Cel­e­brating 100 years of co-​​op and expe­ri­en­tial learning this year, North­eastern has an out­standing track record of helping stu­dents leverage the unique com­bi­na­tion of class­room learning and real world experience.
