Michael Warner

Michael Warner is a corporate educator. But certain apprehensions always prevented him from continuing his education, particularly when it came to earning his master’s degree.

“I’d wanted to get my master’s for years, but I didn’t want to be that 50-year-old in the back of a class of 24-year-olds,” Warner said.

But Warner got over his apprehension, took the leap, and enrolled in Northeastern University’s e-Learning and Instructional Design program. He hit the ground running and fully embraced technology, opting to use a Kindle over traditional hardcover books.

He even applied his own online education from Northeastern to make his own company’s learning models more engaging for all. Warner’s in the process of defining new eLearning models and helping to specify a new Learning Content Management System as direct result of what he learned.

“It’s been hugely rewarding to use what I learned every day,” he said. So rewarding, in fact, that Warner believes that he just might take the next leap and earn his Ph.D. “I am in the business of education after all.”

With a network like this, you too will discover it’s never too late to reach your full potential.

The Northeastern Advantage

Northeastern University is grounded in an innovative idea — that education is about is engaging with the world to solve problems and lead change.

This idea is something we put in motion on a daily basis. We’ve established working relationships in Boston, in hundreds of communities in the United States and in more than 90 countries around the world, including with 3,000+ organizations in business and finance, healthcare and law, education and research, and community service and government.

These highly specialized partnerships are the backbone of an education grounded in experiential learning. Experiential learning transforms “global” and “innovative” from concepts to actions, makes our students and our degree programs more interactive, and invigorates an approach to research that translates knowledge into solutions.

In today’s rapidly changing economic landscape, Northeastern offers flexible, challenging degree programs that connect students with emerging fields, make them problem solvers in the global economy, and prepare them for a lifetime of learning — in Boston, Charlotte, Seattle, Silicon Valley and beyond.
