To a degree, all business schools teach similar skills. But the learning environment and the underlying philosophy are what separate Boston University Questrom School of Business from the others. We’re passionate about educating leaders who focus on adding value—to their organization, their community, and the world. We’re seeking students who want their lives’ work to be meaningful, and we’re dedicated to making their education the most relevant it can be. Best of all, we provide a multitude of pathways to get there. An Alumna and Professor on Why to Choose Boston University Questrom School of Business Alumna Pauline Joeng, Public and Nonprofit MBA ’09, and Organizational Behavior professor Tim Hall explain why to choose Boston University Questrom School of Business. The School is placing increasing research and teaching emphasis on three sectors of vital importance to effective global leadership in the 21st century: health & life sciences, digital technology, and social enterprise & innovation. Points of intersection between these sectors provide exceptional opportunities for ground-breaking research and classroom learning. We strive to optimize your preparation for a fast-changing world.

Two MS programs are available at Questrom School of Business in addition to MBA and programs. These are a master's in management and a master's in mathematical finance, degrees for which the university is featured in the 2018 edition of the QS Business Master's ranking. The innovative management program has no syllabus, exams or formal structure. Instead, students can expect to learn in a hands-on manner, working with industry leaders and developing their own business ideas. No two days are alike and exposure to a range of key industries is constant. 

The mathematical finance master's is perfect for students from a math, physics, engineering or economics background who want to learn more about the relationship between modern finance and practical mathematics. This three-semester program also provides the opportunity to undertake a two-month internship over the summer. 

Applicants to both of these programs may submit either GMAT or GRE scores. The school stresses no particular score is necessary, so an application strong in other areas could make up for poorer test scores. Candidates must provide evidence of proficiency in English, unless they previously studied a bachelor's or master's degree that was taught in English.
