Northeastern University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (19)
It was a great experience. I was involved in the figure skating club on campus and had a co-op with a research lab.
I had a fantastic time. A great, varied university that had a ton of great teachers for my chosen subject. The City of Boston is great.
Excellent coop program. Very valuable industry experience gained during Master's. Love being in Boston. Courses are diverse and intellectually challenging. There were great, good and some bad professors, but mostly on the good side. My overall experience has been very positive.
Northeastern's grad program in math was very disorganized when I was there. The courses were run without a mind toward developing us into mathematicians, it was all very piecemeal and even the people meant to be advising you on what to take weren't aware of what the curriculum was for the courses. On top of that, there was constant stress over funding - the department dangled it over us all, even those who already had it, there was never any sense of loyalty, stability, or safety. Funding decisions were made based on test scores that were incorrect due to mismanagement of testing - incorrect quals administered or only partially given (pages/questions missing). I say this as someone who lucked out in the whole process: it was extremely stressful for everyone.
Very expansive and well-rounded school. The co-op program is probably the most valuable thing I experienced in my time
Great programs, excellent professors, co-op is the most valuable experience you can have. The university is growing and expanding in the most positive way -- new funding, new buildings, new research. There are so many opportunities.
The co-op program was excellent, the classes were hit or miss, and the university itself is run with lots of red tape.
I loved living in Boston however I don't think my degree was worth the amount of money. I had a decent amount of bad professors and overall the administration wastes money on stupid things like 8 plasma tvs in a row. The dreaded "NU shuffle" where you get bounced around between departments looking for an answer is frustrating. However, I will say that some of my friends in different departments had a much more positive experience. I don't regret going to Northeastern but if you're someone who needs hand holding or smaller classes for attention, this is not the school for you.
Co-op program is incredibly valuable. Great professors overall, very accessible. Students are committed to their studies.
Northeastern University's online Leadership program through the College of Professional Studies is the best online school I have been through. I received my bachelor's degree in the same online format from a Brick and Mortar and I wanted to do the same for my Masters degree as I am a working adult. I started Northeastern University online and was immediately informed that my degree would be viewed the same as if I was on campus. There is absolutely no difference between online and on campus for the degree programs through the College of Professional Studies. Since receiving my degree in April of 2014 from Northeastern University I have gone on Multiple interviews all offering over $20,000 more than I make now all in the public sector I could possibly double this if I was willing to go into the private sector. I am exited about the possible opportunities and feel this was the best decision I have ever made. I still have retained the information I have learned and will never forget it. All of the sleepless nights were well worth the pay off I am receiving now! Now keep in mind...I live in Boston and the job market it better here than in many cities and I also had access to the campus at any time! When looking for an online program, try a local university with an online program. I recommend this format depending on your location.
