Matt Foster, Director, Online MBA Programs
My name is Matt Foster. I’m the Director of Online Graduate Programs here at the D’Amore-McKim School of Business. I’m really proud of the offerings that we have here at the D’Amore-McKim School of Business, specifically in our suite of online programs. What really makes our programs unique are the practical applicability.
Northeastern has more than a 100 year history of cooperative education and practical education. In addition to our Online MBA, we also offer an online master of science and finance and we’ve blended these two into a single dual program that we refer to as our Dual Online Master of Science in Finance and MBA. This presents students with a unique opportunity not only to earn their MBA, also to choose from eight concentrations in the process of their MBA, but also to expand their portfolio of learning to really focus on finance.
One of the most amazing and truly unique aspects about our Online MBA here at D’Amore-McKim School of Business is our campus residency courses, typically held at our Seattle campus, as well as here at the Boston main campus and our international field study courses. And international field study courses allow students to get an in-country experience in addition to deliverables required before and during their experience overseas. But it just presents students with an exceptional unique opportunity to get exposure to high level executives at multi-national companies that they would never otherwise have access to.
We’re coming up on the 10 year anniversary of the online programs here at the D’Amore-McKim School of Business and I really couldn’t be prouder as director of the program, just seeing the evolution in my time here at Northeastern and just to see, on the forecast, where we’re going to be taking our programs and where we’re headed.
