As globalization makes the world smaller, flatter, and more interconnected, Boston University continues to examine and refine its mission, organization, curriculum, and ventures abroad in order to reflect and accommodate the needs of students and industries worldwide.
This is especially true at Metropolitan College. Recognizing that success in today’s competitive business and technology industries requires a global perspective, we cultivate a dynamic learning environment for students locally, nationally, and internationally—an environment that is infused with diverse insights, customs, and traditions.
In addition to welcoming students from around the world into our traditional campus programs, our MET International and Boston University in Brussels programs provide a range of opportunities for focused international study in both the U.S. and abroad.
International partnerships overseen by Metropolitan College’s MET International continue Boston University’s long-standing commitment to international higher education and global engagement. Through strategic alliances with educational partners worldwide, the College’s international partnerships offer industry-leading academic models, as well as access to the Boston University experience—exclusively for students from our partner institutions abroad.
The MET International team is responsible for the development and implementation of Metropolitan College’s internationally oriented academic programs in Boston, as well as for fostering the College’s strategic collaborations with organizations abroad.
