Doctoral Programs

Turning ambiguity into findings

Research doesn’t fit into a neat category. Management challenges deal with real people working in complex, rapidly changing economies and communities. At Questrom faculty are teacher-scholars who work with you across disciplines to seek answers to management problems—problems that solve relevant organizational issues and take into account the larger effects on our communities.That’s what sets Boston University Questrom School of Business apart—an open atmosphere where we tackle the big questions, together.
