In order to become a leader in your field and accelerate your career, it’s going to take more than just an outstanding classroom experience. It’s going to take learning that only comes from meaningful, MBA-level experience. And that is where our corporate residency program makes the difference.

Our program is truly unlike anything out there, giving you the experience, confidence, and a lifetime of valuable connections that will help you standout professionally. Our Graduate Career Center works diligently with you to find your perfect corporate fit for your residency. Even as a student, you’ll be working as a paid employee at a leading business in your field of interest. The typical duration of a corporate residency is six-months. This duration will enable you to make a meaningful contribution to the company and build lasting connections. For experienced students that are not changing careers, there is an opportunity to accelerate your program by shortening your residency to three months. Conversely, you may want to undertake two six-month corporate residencies to maximize your opportunity to build your skill set and resume.

100 percent of our first-year Full-Time MBA class was employed at a corporate residency—many at top companies or entrepreneurial startups.

The corporate residency program is unique in that you’re brought in to both learn and be productive from day one.

“When I only have one, then I’m short handed. When I have two, then I get my job done,” says Herzig-Marx, Director, Center for Distributed Analytics and Informatics Systems at Harvard Pilgrim Health Care.

“Northeastern is a highly valued and preferred university partner of Lindt specifically because of the six-month duration of the corporate residency program and their high caliber of students,” says Cloutier, Vice President, Human Resources at Lindt and Sprüngli.

“At the end of the day, we look to Northeastern to provide the kind of talent that will make our future business leaders,” Orange, General Manager, Military Repair & Logistic Services at Hamilton Sundstrand, says.
