Experiential Network (XN) helps Northeastern University students work in their respective fields while working with different sponsors on a wide array of projects.

Through the execution of flexible six-week virtual projects, students apply what they’ve learned in class in a real-world context, gain valuable experience to enhance their resumé, and build their professional networks.

Students can participate in XN projects in Capstone courses, Signature Assignments in electives, or complete XN Sprints as part of an assignment in a course. Through these courses, students receive faculty direction, professional development, coaching and mentoring, and feedback to help ensure a satisfactory experience for students and sponsors.


International students are encouraged to apply! Students in F-1 or J-1 status must maintain all related eligibility requirements, including continuous eight-credit minimum, full-time enrollment (of which a minimum of four must be taken in the classroom) during the entire academic term.
