Master of Engineering Management (MEM) - Batch of 2023
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
Short course with very good education and hectic lifestyle
Tips: Be prepared to go through a tight schedule for the next 15 months. Make good connections with seniors well before coming to campus and learn how to network with people. I'm very satisfied with the course. All is good and I am happy.
Likes (Indian Food): There are quite a good number of restaurants of every cuisine around the campus. Korean, Thai, Mexican, Indian, Nepalese and a lot more. I prefer cooking as it gets expensive if you eat out every day. My fav was 10q and hokkaido near the campus.
Dislikes (Student Life): It's a 15-month course. You'll be in job and intern search for 3-6 months totally together, although social life is not good, due to limited time of 9-12 months free time, it depends on person to person. There are a lot of clubs in the university you should be proactive and explore various clubs on the campus. My fav is NU Adventure.

Northwestern University takes admissions on a rolling basis. This means, international students can apply throughout the year at the university. The university takes admissions through four types of applications; QuestBridge, Early Decision, Regular Decision, and Transfer.

Type of Application



It is for high school seniors who have shown outstanding academic ability despite financial challenges through a process called College Match

Early Decision

It is for those who have done good college research and are thrilled to land at Northwestern next Fall

Regular Decision

This allows students to potentially consider multiple offers of admission and financial aid


This is for students who have enrolled in college courses after secondary school graduation for transfer admission
