Northeastern to Open a Toronto Satellite Campus

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.
