The courses prepares students for the career planning process by covering topics such as résumé writing, mock interviews, job search strategy, salary negotiation, communication skills, business analysis, ethics, etc.

Between their first and second years, students take a three unit course called the Global Project Consulting Course. The course includes pairs students up with a global partner organization to solve problems based on current issues. The class also includes a trip abroad to give students hands-on experience working in an international capacity. On each trip, students attend talks by guest speakers, meet with regional officials, and visit various business firms in order to gain practical exposure to the global business theory taught in the classroom. They spend the rest of the summer and the following fall semester—June through December—in their Corporate Residency, a six-month paid internship with one of Northeastern’s corporate partners.

When they return from their Corporate Residency, students begin taking electives to earn two different concentrations, each requiring 12 credit hours of courses. Students can choose between Business Analytics, Corporate Innovation and Venturing, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Healthcare Management, International Business, Leading People and Organizations, Marketing, and Supply Chain Management.
