The Questrom School of Business MBA: What You Need To Know

Founded in 1913, Boston University’s Questrom School of Business offers a top-ranked MBA program that encourages MBAs to dive into their passions, elevate their skills, and deepen their business expertise.

The B-School is based in Boston – a city with vibrant culture, which offers everything from nightclubs and theaters to cutting-edge startups and a great sports scene.

The two-year full-time program kicks off in the fall and requires MBAs to complete 64 credits of rigorous curriculum that is grounded in hands-on, team-based learning.

First Questrom MBAs cover core courses and can practice presentation skills in the B-School’s version of a TED Talk, a QuestromTalk. The spring continues with more core courses, electives, and an integrative capstone project with a real company. Past clients have included IBM, GSK, Wayfair, and the City of Boston. The second year involves electives and an optional immersion course. Recently, the immersions have been to Vietnam, Paris, and Israel.

Questrom MBAs can choose to explore a specialized pathway in Digital Technology, Finance, Leadership & Organizational Transformation, Marketing, Operations & Technology Management, and Strategy, that each have a selection of suggested electives.

The school offers a unique opportunity to join Questrom’s Learning Communities—groups of students, faculty, and alumni with a shared interest in a functional area of business. In these groups, MBAs get the low-down on all that is going on within, including potential career paths, info about relevant courses offered, networking opportunities. The community options include Finance, Innovation & Entrepreneurship, Leadership & Organizational Transformation, Marketing, Strategy, and Technology & Operations.

Entrepreneurs have an advantage with access to resources like the BUild Lab, Questrom’s student innovation center. Outside of curriculum is the B-School’s tradition called Link Day – a one-day consulting event that matches Boston organizations with teams of Questrom MBAs and faculty to create solutions for specific business problems. The B-School also has Case competitions, clubs, and student-led treks.

“As much as you hear it, it is the network that makes the Questrom MBA experience – These people will become your closest friends and will more than likely have some influence in your future career,” says MBA Winston Jones on Questrom’s website.
