Robin Hamilton

Robin Hamilton is a problem solver and a superstar in the startup game, and it’s because she’s offered her problem-solving skills to those looking to launch their own businesses. Hamilton, an entrepreneur in own right, assists young business owners with everything from copywriting to payroll.

Her company, Boston Business Operations Group, gets things off the ground floor and occupies a unique niche between outsourced operations companies and business consultants who offer prescriptive advice but little hands-on assistance.

Hamilton, who earned her master’s in Project Management from Northeastern University in 2012, isn’t your traditional success story. She earned her bachelor’s at Northeastern nearly 30 years after graduating high school. But she didn’t stop there; she went ahead enrolled in graduate school. During her time in school, Hamilton built friendships with a number of her peers and professors, including Maggie Chernin, who helped build Hamilton’s confidence and further refine her career path.

Now, Hamilton is the one giving out the advice, helping out an assortment of budding entrepreneurs with appropriate resources from her network of business contacts.

Hamilton is the living embodiment of the Northeastern University spirit, and hopes to continue fostering connections, while other people her age are eyeing retirement.

With a network like this, you’ll find your calling. Even if it’s 30 years later than you initially expected.

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.
