Boston: A Hub for Professionals
Northeastern’s flagship campus is located in the heart of Boston between the city’s famed Museum of Fine Arts and Symphony Hall. A sanctuary of lush green spaces and tree-lined pathways, it truly is a campus within a city.
At Northeastern, we build on Boston’s legacy of innovation. Students tackle some of the world’s most pressing problems alongside expert faculty in our more than 30 federally funded research centers and apply what they learn in high-tech classrooms to real-world challenges facing local nonprofits, for-profits, and government agencies.
Home to industry leaders such as Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston Public Schools, State Street, John Hancock, and Vertex, Boston is a hub for healthcare, education, finance, business, biotechnology, and the life sciences. Because our graduate degree and certificate programs are aligned with local market needs—and by combining academics with hands-on experience—students graduate prepared to tackle the challenges facing Boston’s biggest industries.
Northeastern University-Boston: Serving Regional Industries
From business analytics and finance to nursing administration and counseling psychology, Northeastern University’s Boston program is uniquely aligned with the region’s economic development and workforce needs.
Many Northeastern faculty members are recognized leaders and scholars in their field. They serve as mentors and advisors, and collaborate alongside students to solve the most pressing global challenges facing established and emerging markets. They have testified before Congress; made our ports, our medical systems, and our food systems safer; shaped urban policy; participated in international diplomacy; and guided nonprofit organizations. Whether you earn your graduate degree solely online, on-campus, or both, you can never underestimate the importance of having access to the people and resources of a physical, regional campus hub.
