Recruit top talent

Northeastern’s experiential learning model gives industry multiple pathways to find and recruit talented young professionals.

Cooperative education. Co-op integrates classroom learning with practical experience, allowing students to alternate semesters of academic study with six-months of full-time employment in positions related to their major or career interests.

For employers, co-op provides a cost-effective way to hire, develop, and on-board rising talent. When our students enter a full-time position, they require less training, because they’ve already been immersed in the company’s culture and are well-versed in the organization’s processes.

The Experiential Network. The network comprises some 900 sponsoring organizations that provide Northeastern graduate students—in class and online—with short-term, real-world projects to complement their academic work.

Students typically complete projects remotely over a six-week period, producing deliverables that help the sponsoring organization advance a business priority. Employers gain access to top talent and are able to increase their bandwidth without increasing their budget.
