Experiential Learning

Beyond the Classroom At D’Amore-McKim School of Business, we believe that educational opportunities are everywhere, and learning is not limited to the classroom. We offer our students experiential learning opportunities that bring academic lessons into real-world practice. Our unique, hands-on learning model is setting the standard for the future of business education.

Faculty and industry guest lecturers incorporate real case studies into the classroom experience. You’ll hear about how theory and best practices are actually implemented in businesses, and get a better sense for how you might be able to apply your new knowledge to your own professional life.

When class is dismissed, you can get hands-on experience through our innovative on-campus initiatives. Build a marketing plan with targeting messaging and advertising deliverables through the Graduate Marketing Club, or get advice on your business concept from IDEA, a student-run venture accelerator. If you are an international student, work with Northeastern University’s Office of Global Services to apply for Optional Practical Training (OPT), which can authorize you to stay in the United States for 12 months of work experience post-graduation.

Here at D’Amore-McKim, you'll find that meaningful, real world experiences are central to everything we do.

Real Experiences, Real Skills.
