Geospatial intelligence is a rapidly growing field that harnesses the power of today’s “tsunami of free data” and has a range of applications, from national security to humanitarian relief work to disaster response. Northeastern is home to one of just 17 U.S. Centers of Academic Excellence in Geospatial Sciences and is a benchmark for online learning in this very technical field.
Northeastern’s renowned Career Development department was recognized for its work meeting students’ needs in career services and job preparation. It received the No. 1 Global Career Services Satisfaction Award at the inaugural Future Talent Summit in Stockholm.
