Graduated in 2019

International student Ileana Cortessi was looking for a university with an international affairs program as well as exposure to a music department. Since Northeastern works closely with the New England Conservatory, it was a perfect choice. The International Affairs program and participation in Dialogues of Civilization trips gave her formative experiences and inspired Ileana to consider a legal career.

Ileana ’s Path

“Coming from a small country like Greece and being a girl, I never thought that I would be able to do all the things that I did when I came to the United States. Northeastern faculty continued to encourage me to reach my full potential.”

Ileana is now a Marketing and Events Associate at Arena Destination Marketing.
