Co-op: An Education like no other


Our (“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.

Co-op gives you real world experience and puts classroom learning to the test. It sets you on the right path towards a successful career and to becoming a global citizen in a global economy.


Employers rate Northeastern graduates higher than others in work ethic, willingness to learn, leadership and more.
