Experiential Learning

The Real Meaning of ‘Working Knowledge’

Northeastern is the world leader in experiential learning. Here, graduate students—from the master’s through the doctorate, and in professional and certificate programs—put knowledge to work at Fortune 500 and startup companies, universities, government agencies, nonprofits, and global organizations.
