Since 2007 (first admitted class to the dual degree program), more than 400 students have graduated with 2 degrees from 2 countries. The students who enroll in the dual degree program represent over 20 nationalities, which makes for a vastly diverse learning experience in the classroom. The Global Leadership Program is designed to prepare students to be global leaders. Real-world experience and practical course content accelerate learning, allowing local and international students in Australia to earn a Master of Science in Leadership from Northeastern University and the choice of a Master of Business Administration (International), Master of Marketing, Master of Professional Accounting or Master of Science in Finance and Banking from Swinburne University of Technology, in just 2 years.
