A Tradition of Leadership

Northeastern was founded on 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.

The Northeastern network now extends to more than 3,300 employers and 255,000 alumni in seven continents. Our locations in Boston, Seattle, Charlotte, the San Francisco Bay Area, Toronto, and now Vancouver are devoted to connecting students to high-demand industries in innovation hubs, advancing research and development, and supporting local economic growth.
