YOUR NORTHEASTERN The Charlotte campus is located in the heart of Uptown Charlotte, at the corner of Trade and Tryon, a global hub for banking, education, energy, and healthcare. Its proximity to industry is indicative of the direct connection that faculty and students foster with businesses in the region and throughout the world. The Charlotte team of faculty and staff—many with strong civic and corporate ties to the local community—are on-hand to help you meet your educational goals. They also serve as a direct connection between our Charlotte campus, our main campus in Boston, and our extended global network.
THE NORTHEASTERN ADVANTAGE The University started with an innovative idea: education is about engaging with the world to solve problems and lead change. It’s a distinctive approach that infuses our programs, our faculty, and, most of all, our students and alumni—and has earned us top national rankings for entrepreneurship and innovation from Forbes and Entrepreneur magazines. For more than a century, we have provided students with hands-on professional experiences through our signature cooperative education program (co-op). Today, it is the core of the world’s largest experiential learning initiative, extending to more than 3,000 employers in more than 114 countries.* The approach delivers results: alumni hold posts at companies like Wells Fargo, IBM, and Snyder’s-Lance. As a top-tier non-profit university with a focus on research, particularly in the areas of health, security, and sustainability, we offer a venue where you can bring ideas to life. *Number of countries with students participating in experiential learning opportunities between 2006 and 2013
