Northeastern U opens in Silicon Valley with STEM courses
Forbes - 06/14/2016
PK Agarwal holds one of the more unusual posts in academia — he is regional dean and CEO of Northeastern University Silicon Valley.
“Northeastern has a disruptive view of the future,” said Agarwal, explaining why he is running a campus all the way across the continent from the university’s home base in Boston. The university will continue to be place-based, but its places will be global.
Northeastern works with 3,000 corporate partners to better match curricula and training programs to high-demand STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) jobs.
