Leadership and Entrepreneurship

Business, Entrepreneurship, & Leadership

Our students develop as innovators and leaders not only by our distinctive approach to experiential education and research, but also through novel initiatives in  entrepreneurship, business, and leadership.


Engineering Entrepreneurship

The Michael J. and Ann Sherman Center for Engineering Entrepreneurship Education provides education on tools, concepts, and resources to foster creativity and the ability to develop commercially viable ideas. It offers a host of programs and resources, including semester-long courses in product innovation and design, an entrepreneurial engineering minor, an entrepreneurial mentor program, a student-run product development studio, and a co-op program for students to work on their own new ventures. The Center is open to students across the University and also partners with other organizations within Northeastern’s vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Engineering Leadership

The Gordon Engineering Leadership Program is a National Academy of Engineering-recognized institute offering a graduate certificate in Engineering Leadership which can also be taken in combination with most engineering master’s degrees in the College of Engineering. For undergraduate students, a supplementary curriculum to the co-op program is offered to make engineering leadership development a focus of the co-op experience.
