Student & Graduate Reviews

3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: - Cohort program. - Part-time/accelerated format. - Strong alumni network. Cons: - Expensive tuition. - Not the safest neighborhood.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

My school has a competitive faculty who have amazing life experiences (i.e. MA Governor Michael Dukakis is a professor) and can share those experiences with the students, which is priceless. One con is the financial aid department - they are not very good at communicating and that makes it highly difficult for a working student to meet with them and work a full time job.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

The pros are that Northeastern University has a stellar program and I'm also in the Gordon Engineering Leadership program which is the opportunity of a lifetime. The cons are that rent is VERY expensive in the Boston area, car insurance is also expensive, and it can get super cold.
2.33 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Northeastern is a quality school, however is very expensive and does not offer my in the way of financial aid or scholarships for graduate programs.
2.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

Law School program is rigorous, yet rewarding. The faculty and support staff are more than welcoming and willing to assist with any problems you may have. I wish the school and surrounding area was a little more diverse, but with a significant cohort of international students it isn't that bad.

University does not provide sufficient scholarships funds. But there are many on-campus jobs available through which you can support your education. University have very nice co-op program and many tie ups to help build your career. Overall its a nice and decent university.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: This graduate program gave you the best of both worlds with Eningeering and Business Management. It was very enjoyable to learn about managment with a twist of techoology. Cons: This program needs to provide more elective opitions. The electives were limited in choices and some entrepreneurialclasses should be added to the curriculum.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

The nursing graduate degree program at Northeastern University is a great program with one exception. You have to take a real active role in finding suitable clinical placements that meet your educational goals. Beyond that, NU school of nursing is filled with great and passionate nurse educators.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

Any graduate progam costs money, that is the only established con of my graduate program. However, with all the supports, resources and the expertise of the diverse staff, I am well equipped!

Degree: Public Health

Northeastern University is a great university overall. Boston is an incredible city to study in, with tons of opportunities to put what you learn in the classroom to actual work.
