  • Mentorship Program

    One of the most recognizable and successful components of Northeastern University is its co-op program.

Alumni mentors and co-op student mentees can learn from one another all while staying connected to the university through conversations and events.

    Our current partner companies include Brown Brothers Harriman and EMC Corporation. If your company is interested in participating in the Northeastern Circuits Mentorship Program please contact Meg Andrews at m.andrews@northeastern.edu for more information.
