Q. How did you get into the field of Project Management?
A. I got into the field of project management over time. I worked for a wonderful US healthcare company and over time they were looking to optimize all of their resource allocations to ensure they were maximizing the value of their investments.  I began participating on project teams in a subject matter expert role and then became curious about the process of managing projects.  In addition, I worked on large United States government contracts which began requiring project managers who were assigned to the contract to hold the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification, issued by…

Q. How did you get into the field of Cybersecurity?
A. It was mostly due to my Computer Science background. In my Master program, I took a course of Cryptography and that was something that definitively captured my attention. I remember how surprised I was when I saw how cryptography has been evolving since the ancient Greeks to nowadays.

What Employers Need

11/16/2016

Shortly after moving to Toronto to launch Northeastern University’s newest campus, I set out to have conversations with a range of companies and employers. Northeastern’s deep commitment to experiential learning demands a commitment and understanding of current employer needs. And the only way to understand the employer community is to get to know them. Our signature co-op program ensures that our students, and by extension their faculty, are very tuned into the current and emerging needs of the market. So, I got out of my office and started visiting managers, CEOs, tech start-ups, entrepreneurs, trade association representatives and, yes, other academics. My goal was to study my new city and to gain a deep understanding of what employers are looking for in college graduates.

Message from the Founding Principal

11/14/2016

To say that Toronto is an intriguing city is an understatement. In the last several months, as I have been working to establish Northeastern’s newest campus in Canada’s largest city, I’ve had the opportunity to discover the city’s character, energy and excitement. What I have experienced has me more motivated than ever that this is absolutely the right time for both Toronto and Northeastern University.

Almost three years ago, in our search for our next regional campus, Toronto quickly emerged as a strong contender. Months of labour market reports, studies of emerging educational needs and interviews with more than 50 employers led us to conclude that the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) was a great site for our next campus.
