Questrom School of Business

The mission of Boston University’s Questrom School of Business is to prepare ethical and innovative leaders who create value for their organizations, their communities, and the world.

Founded in 1913, the School has been a pioneer in management education for more than 100 years. Our diverse community now includes more than 2,500 undergraduates and 1,200 master’s and doctoral candidates. The School empowers research and teaching that focus on the rapidly growing sectors of the global economy: digital technology, social enterprise and sustainability, and health and life sciences.

Undergraduate Program

Questrom’s undergraduate program teaches managerial perspectives using a systems approach to instill an understanding of the critical interrelationships of various functions within organizations. The School emphasizes a cohesive, enterprise-wide view of management. At the same time, students may also develop a specialty through their choice of electives. Valuable, real-world experiences supplement critical skills and knowledge gained inside the classroom.

Master’s Programs

Questrom offers full-time MBA programs including the Two-Year MBA, Two-Year MS/MBA (a traditional MBA and an MS in Information Systems in 21 months), Health Sector MBA, and Public and Nonprofit MBA. Through the Professional Evening MBA, students have the opportunity to earn their MBA while working full time. MBA students may also pursue dual degrees in media ventures, law, health care, engineering, economics, and international relations.

Additionally, Questrom offers a full-time Master of Science in Mathematical Finance (MSMF) program. The MSMF is distinguished by its careful integration of certain practical domains of mathematics with an in-depth study of the theory and practice of modern finance. This program focuses on the unique field of mathematical finance rather than treating mathematics and finance as separate entities.

Questrom offers a full-time Master of Science in Management Studies (MSMS) program. The one-year MSMS builds a bridge to business for recent graduates with a background in areas like science, math, technology, engineering, digital communications, economics, and more. The MSMS program incorporates a challenge-driven, experiential curriculum allowing client-facing business projects, team interactions, and simulated business decisions to drive modular delivery of management content. Students are admitted to this highly structured program as a cohort, and complete all modular coursework together.

Executive MBA

The Executive MBA (EMBA) program is an accelerated program in general management for mid-career leaders. The 18-month program, designed for executives with 10 or more years of experience, gives students a comprehensive business foundation, reinforced by advanced techniques in a powerful community of peers. Moreover, it focuses on immediate impact: transforming executives even as they transform their organizations.


The School offers Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in accounting, finance, information systems, marketing, mathematical finance, operations & technology management, organizational behavior, and strategy & innovation.

The PhD program is for scholars who are interested in creating and disseminating knowledge and teaching in a university setting. Through applied management research, scholars probe organizational issues of leadership, human resources, systems, finances, and more—to develop solutions that make a difference in business and society.


All undergraduate and graduate degree programs at the School are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International.
