Northeastern University has been on an expansion tear for some years now (just ask its neighbors in the South End, Roxbury, and Mission Hill).

Now it’s expanding again, this time into Charlotte, North Carolina. Then to Seattle. And perhaps, Austin, Minneapolis and Silicon Valley.

The Charlotte satellite campus is the first in a new hybrid-education model that aims to reinvent the way graduate education works.

Northeastern University President Joseph Aoun joins us to talk about his plans.
