Industry-Aligned Programs Grounded in Experiential Learning

Northeastern’s online courses are not simply classroom-based courses pasted into the online environment. Working with learning experts and industry partners, we are the first university to create an online education model driven by cognitive science, informed by employers, and powered by experiential learning. The program includes an extra experiential dimension through collaboratively developed curricula, cooperative education placements, and corporate residencies, case studies, and special projects.


A Global University System

Toronto is part of the Northeastern Global University System, which includes the flagship campus in Boston as well as regional campuses in Arlington (VA), Charlotte, London (UK), Miami, Oakland, Portland (ME), Seattle, Silicon Valley, and Vancouver. This unique and powerful combination of education and research, aligned with regional and global workforce and development needs, moves higher education beyond a model that has changed little in centuries.

The university’s partnerships—through undergraduate and graduate programs, as well as faculty research collaborations—include more than 3,300 businesses and nonprofits in more than 150 countries on six continents.


Alumni Network

Northeastern’s 300,000-plus alumni form a worldwide community of professionals and engaged citizens. The university’s 25 U.S. alumni chapters, eight international chapters, and alumni delegates in more than 80 countries keep alumni connected and serve as a resource for current students on international co-ops.


Advancing Careers

Our career services—ranked by Princeton Review among the top four in the nation for seven consecutive years—offer students and alumni across our network these resources and more: connections to thousands of employers, career advising, job-search and interview preparation, and links to a multitude of online and in-person career services.
