The hallmark of a Northeastern education, now as an opportunity for working graduate students.
Leveraging the 100-year history of co-operative education at Northeastern University, the Experiential Learning at Work Program will now allow working graduate students the opportunity to complete a customized co-op experience.
Demonstrate your expertise by participating in this integrated experiential learning program that brings value to your employer—and adds to your own resumé.
In this graduate-level experience, you will have the opportunity to immediately apply thought-provoking lessons from your master's program, develop and refine your "must-have" knowledge, and position yourself as a leader within your current place of employment.
It's a chance to build your reputation for leadership and innovation, serve your career aspirations, and master critical business skills like research, negotiation, and leadership—on an accelerated timeline.
