The MS in Innovation is a great program if you want to complement a technical bachelor’s degree with a graduate degree that teaches how to understand the market and customers, how to run a company more effectively, and how to spark innovation in existing companies.

The D’Amore-McKim business school is incredible. The caliber of faculty and students are well worth the investment. Northeastern provides a unique learning experience and integrates “real-world” with academia in the best way possible.
