Dean Hugh Courtney

It is my honor and pleasure to welcome you to the D’Amore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University. Our unique educational model that integrates strong academics with authentic experiential learning opportunities is extremely well suited to meet the evolving needs of today’s business student and the global marketplace.

D'Amore-McKim is committed to this model, and all of our students benefit from it. Our undergraduate students transition seamlessly from their classes to applied work environments in our world-renowned co-op program. Our graduate students benefit from experiential learning opportunities as well, such as our six-month corporate residency program in the Full-Time MBA and numerous hands-on business projects in both our on campus and virtual classrooms.

Our school is also committed to embedding a global mindset and orientation into all of our programs, research, and outreach activities. Our top-ranked international business program offers distinctive opportunities for our students to study and work abroad. In addition, we have leading research centers focused on emerging markets, global leadership, and cultural agility to name just a few.

Our faculty are thought leaders in their academic fields and in business practice. Many edit top academic journals and lead professional organizations, while others serve on corporate boards and actively consult and teach at Fortune 500 companies through our executive education programs. We pride ourselves on conducting research and outreach activities that address the world’s most pressing issues.

D'Amore-McKim faculty, staff, students, alumni, and partners are committed to transforming business education to take full advantage of experiential, global, and entrepreneurial learning opportunities. We welcome your feedback and invite you to join us in shaping the business school of the future.

Best regards,

Hugh Courtney, PhD
