Since its founding in 1913, Questrom School of Business has been a leader in innovative management education. Today more than 2,600 undergraduates and 1,200 MBA and PhD candidates constitute its active, achievement-driven student body. Questrom is a leader in systems thinking and leadership training, and takes pride in the diversity of its faculty, staff, and student body.
Unlike most business schools, Questrom School of Business teaches managerial perspectives using a systems approach. It is critical for managers today to understand all the varied forces that act on and within any organization. We teach an understanding of the critical interrelationships of various functions within organizations.
At the same time, we encourage students to choose a concentration to build subject expertise in one or more areas. Through various cooperative relationships, we also support students in pursuing dual degrees with other Boston University schools and colleges. Furthermore, we strive to educate students to add value in every endeavor, in the organizations, their communities, and the world.
Questrom’s programs have enjoyed increasing recognition in the past few years, as measured by rankings, research income, SAT and GRE scores, graduate placement rates, and alumni leadership positions.
Our undergraduate (BSBA) program admits roughly 400 majors each year (more as minors), with highest representation from New England, New York, and California. One-third of our undergraduate population are international students (mostly from China and Korea). Most complete internships in their second and third summers, and are very busy with job searches throughout their senior year. One-quarter spend a semester abroad in junior or senior year.
Our full-time MBA program includes roughly 300 students, with 40% international representation. Our part-time MBA program has about 200 students, all working professionals. Intership and job searches are very intense throughout the year.
At Questrom, our mission is to prepare ethical and innovative leaders who create value for their organizations, their communities, and the world.
