The Power of Partnerships

We help organizations connect with students that have the talents, skills, and leadership to create a better-prepared, more productive workforce. Explore the possibilities of programs designed specifically for your company’s needs and goals.

Project Experiences Empower Students

Students gain invaluable experience by participating in six-week, virtual projects that impact critical business decisions. These projects not only benefit learners but bolster Northeastern’s position as the global leader in experiential learning for all students.
