Richness of Experience

"The most attractive part for me was being able to see what it takes to start and run a business. There are so many startups here and so many people who are very ambitious. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve already been asked 'What are you working on?'"

Alexy Santos, DMSB’20

"Cuba is an island full of paradoxes. It has an innate beauty and its people have an open mindedness that is unmatched, but there is also a lot of internal conflict and we heard some heart–wrenching stories."

Alejandro Serrano, AMD’20

"At Massachusetts General Hospital, I'm working on a self–designed research project and a rewarding moment came when I finally got the results I wanted after weeks of work. That feeling is why I always want to do research."

Kritika Singh, E’20

"During my past year and a half in Berlin, I grew tremendously as a person. In particular, I worked on a product design team at a startup. When I return to campus, I'll have a better sense of what I want from my classes and professional experiences."

Sharon Chan, AMD’19

"Service–learning is one of the most fulfilling things you can do at Northeastern. It's my favorite form of experiential learning—a way to give back to the Boston community and grow as a person and make amazing friends. In the S–L program, everyone loves their service, and each other."

Cassandra Barrett, S/SSH’21

Mastering data

Amit Shinde Amit Shinde

Amit Shinde says analyzing data effectively is critical to his position as a lead engineer for VSP Vision Care in Sacramento, California. Northeastern's Master of Professional Studies in Analytics was just what he needed to become a more creative, confident professional. "The combination of theory and programming knowledge was most valuable to me. I was able to get the complete cycle of data-analysis process in an organization."
