The ‘monumental failure’ of today’s colleges: Survey
CNBC - 09/16/2014
Northeastern University is bucking the trend.
The Boston-based research university, where tuition combined with room and board runs about $56,000 a year, has a special co-op program that provides semester-long full-time internship opportunities for students. The program has been around for more than a century.
More than 90 percent of the students had internships last year through the co-op, with about a quarter from the business school, according to the university. Many of the participants enroll in internships multiple times over their four years.
