First-year BU students take their core classes with a cohort of about 50 students. BU students may also join international field seminars, classes that begin in Boston, focusing on a specific country or region of the world, and end with 2-week trips to places like France, Brazil and China. More graduates from the 2014 class went into marketing (31%) than any other profession. In March 2015, the school was renamed for trustee Allen Questrom, retired CEO of several department and specialty stores, and his wife, Kelli, who gave $50 million, the largest gift in university history. The gift will be used to endow 10 faculty chairs and enable planning to establish a new graduate program facility. More »
What Alumni Are Saying
The best part of the MBA experience was being able to choose my own concentration and take classes that focused on my area of interest. As an international student, I thought BU was well prepared to answer all of my questions and point me to the right career fairs to help me increase my options.
I was surprised by my diverse classmates’ contribution to my development. I’d strongly recommend Questrom as a personalized hidden gem among other traditional MBA production lines in the area.
It was all about finding smart and like-minded individuals and doing as many competitions as possible, otherwise you are stuck with regurgitated class material.
The program offers many different options (e.g. dual degree, international experience) which enhance the degree. Teachers and students were from different backgrounds and great to work and learn with.

Boston University Questrom School of Business marked its 100th anniversary in September 2013. Our proud history includes being one of the very first to admit women, and establishing an MBA in 1925. The School was an early founder of research institutes and one of the nation’s very first to institute specific curricula addressing nonprofit and health care management. We created the Center for Team Learning and the first MS•MBA, a high tech dual-degree that merges technology with today’s business needs. We taught entrepreneurial studies before it had a formal name. We pioneered the move from the operations- and financially-based management models of the past into the network-centric curriculum of contemporary times. We have evolved our curricula to integrate the three most vital and rapidly growing sectors of the world economy: health & life sciences, digital technology, and social enterprise & sustainability. We’re infusing more discussions of ethics and social responsibility throughout our curricula. We’re adding more internationally based cases and options for international experiences. Graduates of every program here stand out as builders and leaders. They rise rapidly in their careers. And they develop the staying power needed in an era when technological advancement drives innovation and competitive advantage—in every department of every organization, in all sectors.
