Northeastern University is world-renowned for its co-op program, where students spend six months working in a full-time, entry-level position within their field of study. Co-op is one of Northeastern’s four tenets of experiential learning (others include service learning, research, and global studies) and is a way for students to dive into their academic interests in a real-life, professional setting.
This experience is a way for students to figure out what the heck they want to do (or not do!) with their lives and is a great asset in the business world with amazing networking opportunities and resume enhancements. Not only that, but Northeastern places over 10,000 students world-wide each year– yes, students co-op not only in the nearby Boston area, but they are also able to co-op in new cities, states, and countries.
