  • Wayfair

    Reinventing the way people shop for their home requires fresh thinking and creative problem-solving. That’s why Wayfair turned to our co-ops.

  • L.L.Bean

    You don’t have over a century of business success without knowing how to evolve with the times. That’s why iconic outdoor retailer L.L.Bean partnered with the Roux Institute at Northeastern’s Portland campus to co-develop data-analytics courses tailored to its employees.

  • Army Research Lab

    Keeping warfighters safe and effective is serious business. So, ARL selected Northeastern to help develop homeland security and defense technologies that can go from lab to battlefield at accelerated speed.
