Northeastern is a world leader in experience-powered education, and you'll apply what you've learned in the classroom to a leading company or startup through a paid MBA-level corporate residency.

You'll make meaningful contributions to your host firm and see your classroom learnings make a difference in real-time. This residency isn't about watching from the sidelines—it's a fast-paced, exciting immersion in the day-to-day realities of working in finance.

You may even find yourself with a job offer from your host company after your residency, in addition to knowledge, confidence, and a lifetime of valuable connections.

Our Graduate Career Center advisors will help you find the residency opportunity that aligns perfectly with your career goals. You'll choose from three residency durations:

  • 3 months—Accelerate your degree if you already have experience in finance.
  • 6 months—Get the full residency experience and forge deep connections in finance.
  • 12 months—Complete year-term initiatives with your host firm or complete two six-month residencies at different firms to build the unique skillset and network you need to advance your career.
