American Northeastern University
College Description (College Ranking near bottom of listing)
Northeastern started with a new idea: that higher education would be enriched by integrating students’ coursework with opportunities for experience in their field of study; that a university could best serve its students and lead innovation by engaging directly with its community through partnerships with employers.
As the university has grown over the decades, so has the breadth of our community, and our level of engagement. Today, co-op is the core of the world’s largest experiential learning program, which extends to more than 3,300 employers in 128 countries.
Northeastern’s leadership in experiential learning is the foundation of its leadership in developing global educational and research partnerships around the world—and the graduate campuses in Seattle and Charlotte, North Carolina, and the hub in Silicon Valley are the latest manifestation of that leadership . Just as in 1898, Northeastern is engaging with communities in partnerships devoted to advancing education and economic growth.
At Northeastern, experience is our essence and ethos. It’s what you gain when you make the world your classroom, your laboratory, and your platform to create change or grow your enterprise. Throughout our university network, experience draws you into society and compels you to solve its complex challenges. It makes you agile and able to reinvent yourself. To find ways of doing things differently, and better. And to seize opportunities as they unfold—anytime, anywhere.
