As an International Business Administration Major I have the opportunity to get a minor in another language and study in another country for at least 4 months and to work for at least 6 months. That is pretty awesome!
I've had some really awesome professors and some pretty cool courses, I've had terrible professors, and I've had some alright professors.
I have high expectations. Northeastern is expensive.
I've had an amazing MIS professor, International Business professor, and Real Estate Investments professor.
They explained the material well, clearly defined expectations, stuck to them, and were very throughout.
I find most courses interactive and engaging. I'm not one for Accounting although I liked my professor and Investments has not been updated to reflect lessons from the recession.
In general I've found the Finance concentration lacking as it does not focus on International Accounting Standards which will be more commonly used in our generation.
Investments focuses way too much on memorizing formulas and doing silly problems than focusing on the theory and implementation of it in a work environment. We should be using analysis applications like Access and Excel.
I do love the supply chain courses although they all basically hit the same topics.
I will say there is a lot of activity in the clubs on campus and that you can grow a lot from them, especially ones associated with adding in your business education formation.
In general, I'm interested in learning best practices from my work experiences and then implementing them into entrepreneurial ventures.
There are a lot of resources for this mindset at Northeastern!

Boston is subjected to large amounts of snow and ice in the winter months. This area has also suffered power outages from Super Storm Sandy and other coastal storms. I have seen classes cancelled for up to two or three days but it seems that the professionals working in and around this area are very well prepared which allow for minimal disruption in our learning.

The online library is easily accessed and provides a multitude of resources to promote educated responses to blackboard activities and the multiple papers on specific topics that may require a minimum of five or more scholarly reference materials.

Health & Safety:
Although I attend my classes electronically, Northeastern University keeps me posted on safety issues, including any lock downs due to security issues on or near the campus.

My school offers online education so that I can fulfill my higher education goals. The professors are very professional and provide immediate answers to questions posted online. The degree I am pursuing in Regulatory Affairs will enhance my capabilities while performing as a Quality Auditor for a biopharmaceutical company during vendor qualifications. Northeastern University in Boston, however, is raising the tuition costs to where it is too expensive for me to continue. I have a very strong desire to continue and finish my studies in this field but I also have to be realistic in knowing these costs will have to be repaid. A scholarship towards this costs will greatly improve my financial ability to stay on track to completion.

I did a coop at Dana Farber Cancer Institute in the Fiscal and Regulatory Management department. It dealt with donations that came in. My job was to use pledgemaker to record the donations. I had to record from whom the donation was from, where it was going and if it was for an event or if it was a tribute gift. Pay was very good and I was kept busy. I learned a lot about the program, pledgemaker.

Boston has amazing food, with ranging from dirt cheap food truck to world class fine dining.
College Sophomore 2013-09-12T17:59:54Z
There's always parties going on and if you're over 21 Boston is a fantastic city to go out in.
College Sophomore 2013-09-12T17:58:58Z
I've had tons of support from advisors, my coursework has been extremely relevant, and the co-op program has been indispensable.
College Sophomore 2013-09-12T17:58:05Z
It's New England weather, so you never quite know what you're going to get. That said, the fall/spring is beautiful and the winters are great for skiing!

Northeastern has a stellar co-op program that lets you get real work experience before graduation. My first co-op was with a Fortune 500 company, paid, and lasted six months. Upon graduating, I'll have a year and a half of full-time work under my belt, as opposed to a few measly summer internships.
College Junior 2013-09-12T16:56:26Z
There are many places to eat on campus including restaurants and dining halls.
College Junior 2013-09-12T16:53:24Z
The opportunities for internships is great at this school. Every major has the opportunity to participate in Co-ops.

It is very strict such as certain polices, like there is no smoking on campus, you got to be in your dorms at a certain hour, but at the same time it does give certain flexibility to manage your own times, it has also a lot of public spaces either to read, or just hang out.
College Freshman 2013-09-10T21:41:29Z
You have students from all over, countries such as Saudi Arabia, Ghana, Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador, England, Denmark, Switzerland, India. and many others. Extremeley culture rich
College Freshman 2013-09-10T21:39:54Z
there is a lot of on campus security, as well as a lot of programs that give good advice to stop drug abuse. It also depends a lot on who you hang out.
College Sophomore 2013-09-09T02:33:53Z
Well, I needed to have a maximum of 15-20 hrs of community experience in the field that I'm going into. Two letters of recommendation from a teacher, and a gpa of 2.75.
College Sophomore 2013-09-09T02:30:42Z
Well, I haven't started my program yet I will be starting it in the spring of 2014.
College Sophomore 2013-09-09T02:29:15Z
I haven't one my internship, but I am planning on doing it. If they offered me to pay for my time interning I would not want them to pay me because I don't want them to think that I'm doing it because of the money but because I want learn and experience what it is teaching students.
College Sophomore 2013-09-09T02:19:23Z
Well, the program at Northeastern is a hard core program meaning that it will only take two years for you to graduate. Also the program asks of every student majoring in special education to go full time. Which I know thats why we will graduate in two years.
College Senior 2013-09-08T16:02:40Z
On campus is expensive, but so is off campus. I wish I could move back to campus...it may be more expensive, but I wouldn't have to worry about utility bills or mice.
College Senior 2013-09-08T16:01:25Z
There are SO many restaurants on and around campus. From pizza to sushi, fine dining to fast food, there is always something close by and delicious.
College Senior 2013-09-08T16:00:46Z
Lots of great spaces for everyone to enjoy, especially now that the campus has gone smoke-free! Being in a city, you wouldn't expect such a beautiful, green campus, but that's what we have here.

Northeastern is located right in between 2 subway lines. Cabs are always available. Living in a city makes transportation east.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
