Northwestern University is a private research university founded in 1851. While the campus is somewhat divided into two halves (the Evanston campus and the Chicago campus), we’re only going to talk about the one at Evanston, since that’s where all engineering students are going to end up. Now while Northwestern is known for the very excellent Kellogg School of Management, it’s important to know that just about every other area of study at the university is quite a handful as well.
STEM Course The MS in Analytics at NWU is a government-designated STEM degree and so international students may be eligible for the 24-month F1 OPT (optional practical training) extension.
