Engineering and Business

Northeastern University’s Galante Engineering Business Program offers a progressive opportunity for engineering students to complement their technical engineering education with business skills by earning a graduate certificate in engineering business. Galante is founded on the values of student engagement and leadership to strengthen interpersonal and professional skills. Programmatic elements are offered to students such as workshops, speaker series, site visits, seminars, and other related personal and professional development activities as a connected cohort.
