Northeastern University, abbreviated NU or NEU, is a private university in Boston, Massachusetts. Northeastern's award-winning campus is located in the Fenway Cultural District of Boston.

Employers include top ranked international law firms, banks, and corporations and many of the Fortune 500 companies such as Microsoft, Disney, VA, JayJay, Barilla and Raytheon. The co-op program enhances classroom work with real world experience. In 2008, Northeastern was ranked #1 by the Princeton Review for "Best Internships/Career Services. Nationally, Northeastern is ranked 1st in Internships and 34th in Academics by Business Week in its 2008 Best Undergraduate Business Edition.
