The Value of a Co-op Education

Northeastern provides a broad-based network of support that helps you prepare for and get the most from co-op, including an academic advisor, a co-op coordinator and if applicable, an international co-op counselor.  Your co-op coordinator(s) will help guide you through the co-op process and help identify various positions that best match your skills and career interests.  After you’ve completed your co-op assignment, you will be asked to reflect upon your experience and explain how it integrates with your classroom studies. The reflection process may include a variety of options, such as: participating in company seminars, faculty conferences,  one-on-one meetings with your co-op coordinator, writing assignments/or presentations.
