The Carroll School of Management MBA: What You Need To Know

Boston College’s Carroll School of Management offers MBAs a community that supports each other academically, professionally, and personally, and it’s in a prime location for a B-School – in a city said to be a leader in healthcare finance, insurance and higher education. Beyond the vast array of career opportunities, the college is home to exciting sports teams and a vibrant cultural scene, with nearly one quarter of the city’s population being graduate students. Each full-time MBA class has anywhere from 70-90 students by design to provide a personalized experience within the two-year program.

Carroll MBAs move through the two-year program in cohorts of 40 classmates, taking courses in the required curriculum and participating in a range of experiential learning opportunities including real-world consulting projects and field studies.

Guided by world-renowned faculty, first-year MBAs gain an understading of foundational business concepts while fostering connections with classmates. All students are required to take three core data analytics courses, which form an integral part of the MBA curriculum. In addition to these learning requirements, all Carroll School MBA students must complete 20 hours of community service in order to graduate from the program – an aspect unique to Carroll.

Students strengthen their foundation of essential skills during second-year electives in functional areas of management. These electives are interdisciplinary and designed to allow students to develop depth and expertise in a chosen area of study, including in Corporate Finance, Business Analytics, and Product and Brand Management.

Outside of required curriculum, some Carroll MBAs join the College Chief Executives Club – a business forum that draws in guest speakers/CEOs, with past speakers including Disney’s Bob Iger, Nike’s Mark Parker, and IBM’s Virginia Rometty. Students frequent the Shea Center for Entrepreneurship and participate in programs like Accelerate@Shea and the Strakosch Venture Competition. The Center also provides student startups with expert advice, space, and funding to launch and grow their business.

“The choice to go full-time for me was a personal decision because I wanted to really be able to focus on the business world experience. While it is a bit of a sacrifice to step away from my profession, from getting a paycheck, for me it was the right decision,” says MBA Adam Benjamin.
