The Northeastern Advantage

Founded in Boston in 1898, Northeastern is a global research university and a world leader in experiential learning, with campuses in Boston, Charlotte, Silicon Valley, Seattle, and now Toronto. We know that in a time of rapid technological change, you need to keep learning to keep up.

Here’s what Northeastern offers the people and businesses of Toronto.

The Northeastern advantage is an online experiential model that leverages the learning power of workplace experiences for our students.

Innovative Programs

Our Master’s programs are aligned with some of Toronto’s fastest growing industries. All of our programs are offered fully online or in a flexible hybrid format (combining online and in-class instruction). Take classes taught by Northeastern’s world-class faculty on your own schedule.

A Global Network
With our growing network of campuses, Northeastern brings a unique perspective on the talent and innovation needs of some of the world’s most dynamic cities.

Experiential Opportunities
Northeastern infuses industry-aligned experience into every graduate and professional-degree program through its renowned co-op program and our innovative XN learning platform—in which students work directly with an industry sponsor on a short-term business project.

Our Delivery Model

Northeastern faculty members in online- and hybrid-based programs integrate their deep theoretical knowledge with strong professional experience. Using the technology tools that have made online education a rich learning environment, they draw from a wide array of resources that enable students to apply new knowledge directly to the problem-solving needs of the workplace.

Our degree programs are designed to let each student choose from online and hybrid learning options. We make every effort to offer courses in a variety of formats; however, enrollments determine course offerings from term to term.

Our hybrid format—the blending of online and classroom learning—offers students the best of both worlds: the flexibility and convenience of online education and the personal, faculty and peer interaction of classroom-based programs.
