The Vancouver Location
Northeastern University in Vancouver is our first location in British Columbia and second in Canada. We’re excited to join the rapid emergence of the international superhub known as the Cascadia Innovation Corridor alongside Northeastern’s location in Seattle and companies like Amazon, Microsoft, SAP, Sony, Copperleaf, Unbounce, Traction on Demand, Finger Food Advanced Technology Group, Fortinet, and more.
Vancouver’s appeal is recognized time and again through research and reports that focus on a fundamental priority—to continue its meteoric rise as a world-class technology centre, Vancouver needs world-class talent. To drive innovation and growth in its economy, Vancouver and British Columbia are increasingly seeking the brightest and most ambitious students to study relevant programs that secure highly skilled careers. And those who succeed are rewarded with the opportunity to balance a rich and diverse career with a lifestyle that is second to none, with Vancouver’s outstanding natural beauty and its reputation as a safe and highly diverse city.
The best careers are abundant in Vancouver and British Columbia. The BC Labour Market Outlook 2018 forecasts 903,000 job openings between 2018 and 2028, and 77% of future jobs will require some form of postsecondary education or training. The recently published BC Tech Scorecard 2018 highlights the requirement for rapidly increasing talent, noting that British Columbia currently has too few master’s graduates with technical degrees entering the workforce.
A Global Network
With Northeastern’s development of a networked and global system of locations—focused on fast-growth, innovative hubs that are driven by technology and attractive to entrepreneurs and companies—this is the time to study master’s programs with Northeastern University in Vancouver. Our initial degree programs are aligned with local industry and designed to prepare professionals for roles in these fast-growing fields. Immersed in experiential learning opportunities with local employers, our students develop exceptional relationships with employers well before they graduate.
