Our Partnerships

Northeastern’s network extends to more than 3,300 partners worldwide. Our partners work with us in a variety of ways and, through collaboration, offer students the opportunity to gain hands-on, real-world experience, broaden their skillset, and increase their opportunities for advancement.

Employer Partners

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.
