Our Partnerships

Partnerships with academic institutions, associations and employers are vital to maintaining Northeastern’s uniquely innovative goal of creating globally aware and experienced leaders. In a rapidly changing world – where experience living and working in other cultures gives students an advantage – Northeastern’s reputation as an academic pioneer in experiential education makes it an attractive partner for both research, and student exchange and co-op opportunities.

Employer Partnerships

Northeastern’s distinctive approach to integrating rigorous classroom study with practical experience presents a far more powerful way to learn. Our students enter the workforce with professional, career-related experience. The university’s cooperative co-op education program lets students alternate semesters of academic study with semesters of full-time employment in positions related to their major or career interests.

Northeastern students are prepared for their careers. Employers rate Northeastern graduates higher than others in work ethic, willingness to learn, leadership, and more. Northeastern University–Toronto has established corporate partnerships—through co-op placements, tuition reimbursement scholarship programs, and corporate engagement in the classroom.
