Level’s parent institution, Northeastern University, is regarded as a leader in experiential education, or learning by doing, and Level has followed suit with the same dedication to breaking down the walls between the classroom and the world.
The Level experience is capped with a capstone project, where students work directly with an industry partner on one of their real world business problems. Partners have ranged from big companies like Google and Citizens Bank to startups and emerging companies like Beepi and Rue La La.
Level students have embraced the capstone projects as a way to apply classroom tools to real workforce scenarios. “The best part of the class was our capstone project. It allowed me to use the tools to work on a real world business problem with a leading corporation,” said Paul Rapino, a Level graduate from the Seattle campus.
Level projects are part of the Experiential Network, a team of experts within Northeastern University’s College of Professional Studies that also provides experiential opportunities for Northeastern University students.
