Available city seeks college
Inside Higher Ed - 05/20/2016
Northeastern University has been investing heavily in new domestic campuses of late. Under the banner of its Northeastern University Global Network, the private Boston-based institution has moved to create graduate operations in Charlotte, N.C.; Seattle; and Silicon Valley in recent years. Toward the end of last year it announced plans to open a campus in Toronto.
Before Northeastern started building out its network, it examined 100 metropolitan areas, said Philomena Mantella, senior vice president and CEO of the Northeastern University Global Network, who leads location strategy. Demographics, economic indicators and industry clusters all went under the microscope. So did areas’ openness to higher education.
