Congratulations on your acceptance to Boston University Questrom School of Business! The faculty, staff, students, and leadership are honored to welcome you to Questrom. I am speaking to you today at an unprecedented time in our history. This is not the world as we have known it. Nor is it the world we would like it to be. Each spring, we look forward to opening our doors and welcoming our admitted students to experience Questrom and our home on Commonwealth Avenue. Sadly, that is not possible right now. This year we are coming together virtually. While the experience might be different, we are just as excited to connect with you and introduce you to our resources, our programs, and—most importantly—our Questrom community.
Questrom is a world-class business school with a strong collaborative culture. We are friendly, caring, and, above all, authentic. Ours is a community of real people coming together to work hard on real-world business problems so that we can go on to create value for the world.
Questrom is part of a leading research university where everyone—students, alumni, faculty, and staff—aspires to greatness. You’ll gain relevant experience inside and outside the classroom, and these experiences will serve as a strong foundation for launching your career. We promise that you’ll be busy defining who you are, what excites you, and where you want to go, both personally and professionally.
We are Boston’s University, and we’re proud to be a leader in America’s most vibrant college town. Over 150,000 students are studying in this city. Boston is an international hub, but also a thriving local community well-known for its traditions, sports teams, and business ecosystems in key industries including finance, digital business, social impact, sustainability, and health. Your BU experience is strengthened 100-fold by being part of Boston. Through our Open House sessions, you will learn about the program advantages Questrom has to offer, including study abroad, new concentrations of study, and staff partners eager to work with you as you seek internships and jobs. You’ll see how we’re here to support you as you choose concentrations and minors and determine how you want to shape your Questrom experience.
I am also honored to officially welcome you to our dynamic community of alumni. Questrom alumni are accomplishing great things across the globe, and I’m personally excited by the privilege of seeing what you and your fellow classmates will be doing as you come to and graduate from Questrom.
I know that choosing a college is a big decision, and we are grateful that you are considering us for your undergraduate journey. By choosing Questrom, you’re choosing more than just an education. You’re choosing lifelong relationships and growth opportunities. You’re deciding to partner with us to learn how to be effective, principled leaders. In choosing Questrom, you’re joining an international family of over 53,000 Questrom students and alumni, all of whom are eager to create value for the world.
