Global Co-op for Employers

Cooperative education is Northeastern’s signature form of experiential education. By partnering with Northeastern’s College of Social Sciences and Humanities, global employers gain access to bright, motivated students who are eager to bring their knowledge, skills and cultural perspective outside of the classroom to work, contribute, and learn about another culture. CSSH partners with organizations in a wide variety of global fields, including nonprofit, NGOs, businesses, law firms, and educational institutions, among others. 

When a student works in a different country on global co-op, some of the co-op processes are different or more complex. In addition to other employer resources on this website, we encourage global employers to review the global co-op resources below and to work closely with the co-op coordinator to help ensure a positive experience for both the student and the employer.
