8-Month International Student Cohort Curriculum
Join a global community of learners and earn a valuable credential
Designed for the needs of international students, our eight-month certificate format is F-1 visa compliant, which allows you to apply for Optional Practical Training (OPT) upon successful completion of the program. If you’re hoping to work in the United States after achieving your certificate, this format is the right one for you. You’ll complete five required courses (15 credits) on our Boston campus.
Your learning will center on the skills you need for a global business world undergoing a digital transformation—from essential business knowledge like accounting and management to cutting-edge coursework on analytics and entrepreneurship. As you build a highly relevant skill set in this short but intense study format, you’ll learn alongside fellow students from across the globe with diverse professional and academic experiences. You and your classmates will spend significant time together over eight months, forging business and personal connections that can benefit you for a lifetime.
You’ll work directly with the Office of Global Services to maintain visa compliance throughout your program. You’ll also find invaluable support in our office of Employer Engagement and Career Design. An expert career counselor will help you navigate issues unique to your situation, including acclimating to American work culture, starting a job search in the United States, and finding networking opportunities in Boston and beyond.
Your certificate will be a meaningful credential in its own right, but it can also be a valuable stepping stone toward an MBA or other master’s degree. If you ultimately complete your certificate and decide to pursue your MBA or other eligible master’s degree here at Northeastern, your credits earned may apply directly toward your course requirements.
