Leverage the Northeastern Advantage

For 100 years years Northeastern's Cooperative Education Program has helped our employer partners connect with our talented and productive students. By joining with the D'Amore-McKim School of Business through co-op, our employer partners are able to tap into the best and brightest students - building a pipeline for talent even before students graduate. 

What is Co-op?

Students in the undergraduate business programs alternative between six months of school and six months of co-op beginning in their sophomore year. During co-op periods, students work alongside permanent employees in full-time, paid positions. Typically our employers establish full-time positions and students rotate at six-month intervals. Co-op students provide a pipeline of experienced potential employees who bring a fresh perspective and understand the needs of today’s business environment. Co-op is an effective way for companies to meet their human resource needs. And, because these are 6-month work periods, students spend more time working, not just training.

How to Get Started

Co-op faculty coordinators work closely with companies and with our business students. Coordinators provide a wide range of expertise to our employers and support them through the hiring process, including: referring appropriate students who meet the criteria established by the employer, facilitating the interview process, and assisting with on-campus marketing/branding activities.
Employers makes the hiring decisions and provide students with the training to perform the job. As with any employee, supervisors meet with the co-op students they hire to set goals, track performance and complete an evaluation at the end of the work period. Co-op faculty coordinators are available to support both the employer and students during the co-op work period.

Hiring Graduate Students

The MBA Career Center is a resource for employers to meet their hiring needs with qualified, talented MBA students for both corporate residency and full-time opportunities. We strive to provide employers meaningful opportunities to engage with students.

Corporate Residency

Corporate residency is a critical component of our Full-time MBA program. Full-time MBA students complete a six-month corporate residency after their first year of MBA classes. This provides students an opportunity to apply what they have learned in class while gaining valuable experience. For employers it is an opportunity to bring talented, hard-working and enthusiastic students to perform specific assignments or projects. Our students offer you experience in finance, marketing, and supply chain/operations to help you address your critical business issues. Students work on corporate residency June through December. We begin posting corporate residency positions in January, and the first day of interviews is at our MBA Career Fair.

Full-time Employment

MBA students and alumni seeking full-time opportunities provide a great pool of talent for your organization. We are happy to work with you to meet your specific needs. We can post full-time opportunities for you at no cost, at any time. Students can apply online, and we will send you a customized resume book of interested students. We have interview space available in our office suite if you wish to interview on campus. By posting your position with the MBA Career Center, you will have access to a large pool of talented students and alumni from our full-time and part-time programs. We can assist you in finding qualified, talented individuals to meet your business needs.

Key Recruiting Opportunities

The Northeastern MBA Career Fair is held each year in February. There is no charge to the company for participation. Interview space is reserved for companies who wish to interview while they are onsite. This is the first opportunity to interview for corporate residency positions.
