Adam Katz

Urban and Regional Policy, MS

Graduated in 2014

Adam Katz is an entrepreneur at heart. Growing up, his father had always owned businesses and instilled a passion for entrepreneurship in his son. Adam started his undergraduate degree at Northeastern University as an economics and business major, with a dual concentration in entrepreneurship and management. After two years, he transferred to UMass Amherst and earned his undergraduate degree. His interest in economics informed his desire to do economic development work; he believes combining economics with policy is the best way to improve the quality of life for as many people as possible. So, Adam returned to NU for his Master’s of Science degree in Urban and Regional Policy with a concentration in Economic Development. 

Adam’s Path

The professors here are amazing, and they want to help. Northeastern is not a school where the professors just teach their class and then leave and are not available to you. They’re not just there to grade your papers. They say, ‘Come see me. Let me help you learn. I want to be there for you and want you to take advantage of that so you can get the most out of your education.’
