    The Northeastern Advantage

    Northeastern University brings more than a century of experience to forging partnerships that make our educational approach more powerful and our university more innovative.

    Today, our partnerships expand outward from Boston, to hundreds of communities in the United States and 90 other countries around the world. This includes thousands of organizations in business and finance, healthcare and law, education and research, and community service and government.

    These partnerships are the backbone of an education grounded in global experiential learning, which enables our students to discover their passion, take on greater intellectual challenges, and navigate the world with confidence. Close connections to the world invigorate our use-inspired approach to research that translates new knowledge into solutions.

    A university engaged with the world is in tune with the needs of its students. In today’s rapidly changing economic landscape, Northeastern offers flexible, challenging degree programs that connect students with emerging fields, make them problem solvers in the global economy, and prepare them for a lifetime of learning.
