The Doctor of Education fosters leaders in professional fields to employ existing research and theory to develop and conduct research to investigate, explore, and transform organizational and institutional landscapes. With a deep respect for students' practical experience and knowledge, Northeastern teaches students via experience how to incorporate practice-based research into their day-to-day professional work.
