Employer Partners

Northeastern’s distinctive approach to integrating rigorous classroom study with practical experience presents a far more powerful way to learn. Our students enter the workforce with professional, career-related experience.

The university’s cooperative (“co-op”) education program lets students alternate semesters of academic study with semesters of full-time employment in positions related to their major or career interests.
