Looking to improve access for its global student body, Northeastern University College of Business Administration was willing to undergo the hardships of being a beta partner to get the mobile-optimized site it wanted. With the launch of its mobile-optimized website early last month, Northeastern University College of Business Administration (MA) took a step closer to fulfilling its vision of fully supporting a student body that is scattered around the world. The new site, optimized for iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry devices, gives students access to contact information, degree-program offerings, college and faculty overviews, and upcoming events. “Mobile devices make boundaries disappear,” explained Acting Dean Harry Lane, who is also a professor of international business and strategy. “For us, education is increasingly taking place where it makes sense for our students to be. We see this trend accelerating and we are positioning ourselves to be accessible to our students wherever they are, and however they want to communicate with us.”
