College of Professional Studies (CPS) Cooperative Education

As the cornerstone of Northeastern University’s educational model, CPS Co-op offers learners the opportunity to apply classroom skills within professional settings to solve real-world business problems.

Real-World Learning 

Maybe you have some experience in a field, but you’re looking to re-enter the workforce in a better-paying position at a bigger company. Co-ops can help you connect with a target organization and earn while you learn, allowing you to put your name and face in front of the right people and prove you have what it takes to work there. Perhaps you’d like a preview of what it’s like to work in a particular field, before you commit to it or just want to start applying the theories you’re learning in class to your real-world job.
