Northeastern plans satellite campus in Toronto
The Boston Globe - 11/02/2015
Northeastern University plans to open a satellite campus in Toronto next year, in what will be the school’s first international outpost and fourth branch outside its Boston hub.
This initiative, three years in the making, aims to offer graduate programs tailored to working professionals and give workers specific skills missing in the Toronto talent pool, Northeastern president Joseph E. Aoun said. Northeastern plans to formally announce the expansion Monday.
“No university can be confined to a single campus,” Aoun said. He said the goal is to establish roots in the city and allow students to move between the university’s other satellite locations in Seattle; Charlotte, N.C.; and Silicon Valley.
