  • Northeastern University’s workforce training could be a roadmap for improving internships

    The Washington Post - 05/14/2016

    “We really think connecting theory to practice in the real world is incredibly important,” said Susan A. Ambrose, senior vice provost of undergraduate education and experiential learning at Northeastern. “This notion that our students are taking the knowledge they have and using it in the real world, where there are real constraints, real parameters and real consequences is important to us.”

    Before students get out into the field, they must take a course on campus to prepare them for the rigors of the working world. Students are encouraged to sign up for their first co-op assignment in the second semester of their sophomore year, and can complete up to three assignments before graduation. Ambrose said about 94 percent of Northeastern students complete at least one six-month co-op assignment before graduation.
