Toronto, Jan. 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Seneca has signed a memorandum of understanding with Northeastern University that will allow Seneca students in the Clinical Research and Pharmaceutical Regulatory Affairs & Quality Operations graduate certificate programs to receive 12 credits towards a master’s degree at Northeastern upon admission to its Regulatory Affairs for Drugs, Biologics, and Medical Devices program.

Taking advantage of Northeastern’s flexible program delivery — with the option to study fully online or during the evening at Northeastern’s downtown Toronto campus — Seneca graduates will be able to pursue their degree while working full time in their respective fields. 

“We are delighted to partner with an institution of Northeastern University’s calibre and to create more pathways for our students,” said Ranjan Bhattacharya, Dean of Seneca’s Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering Technology. “Through this partnership, our graduates can pursue higher learning while still making their mark in their new professions.”

The new agreement builds on a previous partnership with Northeastern University that gives advanced standing to students in Seneca’s Honours Bachelor of Technology – Informatics & Security degree program to pursue the Master of Science in Cybersecurity program at the university.

“We are glad to partner with Seneca to offer their graduate certificate students the opportunity to complete a master’s degree in regulatory affairs at Northeastern University at our Toronto campus. As the practice of regulatory affairs roles becomes increasingly scientific and technical in nature, and integrated with strategic decision-making within organizations, the demand for skilled professionals is in high demand. Northeastern’s global campus network, in combination with our focus on lifelong and experiential learning creates an exciting pathway for Seneca graduates,” said Aliza Lakhani, Regional CEO & Dean, Northeastern University — Toronto.
