YOUR NORTHEASTERN The Seattle campus is located in the South Lake Union neighborhood, a global hub for progressive health, life sciences, and technology companies and institutions. 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 Seattle 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 the Seattle campus, the main campus in Boston, and the 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 experience 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 Boeing, Amazon, and Microsoft. As a top-tier non-profit research university, particularly in drug discovery, cybersecurity, global health, and energy storage and conversion, 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
