Northeastern University, a New England Council member, is opening their fourth satellite campus in Toronto, Canada next year. The University already has their main Boston campus as well as satellite campuses in Seattle, Charlotte, and Silicon Valley. This will be their first international campus.
The new Toronto campus will offer graduate programs that address the area’s industry needs such as project management, information assurance, and regulatory affairs for drugs, biologics, and medical devices. The expansion received praise from the Major of Toronto, who is looking forward to the enhancement of their workforce as a result of Northeastern’s presence. Northeastern is also currently in the process of working on other expansion projects.
“No university can be confined to a single campus,” said Northeastern President Joseph E. Aoun, a New England Council Board Member. “Because of co-op, a Northeastern education has never been limited to the campus. This initiative is a more intentional approach to taking our educational model around the world. Toronto’s culture of innovation and increased demand for a highly skilled workforce make it an excellent regional partner for Northeastern. We are excited to build a bright future together.”
The New England Council wishes Northeastern the best of luck on this exciting endeavor.
