#48 Best Business Schools


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.

    Uber. Airbnb. Facebook. It seems that every Silicon Valley conversation, every software pitch deck, every article on digital transformation must mention these unicorns. Pioneers of the Networked Digital Era. Or maybe The Sharing Economy. Or perhaps, The Platform Revolution.
