Emerging Markets Minor

Northeastern University offers undergraduates a minor in Emerging Markets that provides them a path to gain an understanding of emerging markets, their role in the global economy, and their potential to supplant developed markets. The minor requires students to apply what they have learned in the classroom in practical field research projects in an emerging market.

The interdisciplinary minor involves five courses in which the D’Amore-McKim School of Business partners with departments in the other colleges at NU. Students must take three courses, including one from the D’Amore-McKim School of Business, and two electives at other colleges. They also participate in an eight-credit summer field research program focused on issues in emerging markets.

Past Emerging Markets Minor programs


In the summer 2014, a batch of NU students went on a field service component to Brazil, under the guidance of Professor Ravi Sarathy and colleagues at EAESP-FGV, Sao Paulo. After an introductory course on Doing Business in Brazil, they each completed field research in a Brazilian organization.
