Questrom School of Business
A MESSAGE FROM DEAN FREEMAN
The Questrom School of Business has more than 50,000 alumni, and thanks in part to the education you received here, you are driving positive change. Here at Questrom, your support sustains our momentum. Read more.
Boston University’s Questrom School of Business teaches students to create value for their organizations, their communities, and the world. Along with teaching functional and industry-specific skills, we also explore the ethical, global, and social responsibility considerations of managerial decisions.
Our proud history includes being one of the very first schools of management to admit women, being one of the nation’s first to institute specific curricula addressing nonprofit and health care management, and establishing the first MS•MBA, a high-tech dual degree that merges technology with today’s business needs.
The School marked its 100th anniversary in September 2013. But we see our centennial as a reason not to look back, but to look forward and continue to break ground. We have evolved our curricula to integrate the three most vital and rapidly growing sectors of the world economy: digital technology, energy and the environment, and health. To continue to provide exceptional opportunities for business creation, career advancement, groundbreaking research, and classroom learning, we need your support.
The reputation of the Questrom School of Business begins with our faculty. Endowed faculty chairs provide the resources necessary to recruit and retain high-caliber faculty—faculty from whom accomplished students will be excited to learn and whose research burnishes the School’s image as an innovative, forward-looking thought leader in management education. Our goal is very straightforward: increase the number of endowed chairs from 10 to 24 during this campaign.
Endowed research funds are needed to provide funding for faculty to conduct the kind of cutting-edge research that creates new knowledge for the world. Research enhances the classroom experience of our students by exposing them to the very latest management practices and raises the profile and reputation of the School by putting our faculty on the map as thought leaders.
Building Expansion and Technology
Our improving reputation as a high-caliber, innovative management school has brought more people through our doors. Our increasing enrollment and growing faculty and programs are straining the capacity of our existing facilities. We are seeking philanthropic support to build new space to accommodate our growth.
Management education is adapting to capitalize on the opportunities provided by the latest in digital technology. We also seek funds to enhance our teaching and learning capabilities with the latest in classroom technology.
Graduate and Undergraduate Scholarships
With additional scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students, the School can continue to raise our academic profile by attracting bright, highly qualified students who enrich the Questrom experience for everyone and help to move us along the path to becoming an elite business school.
We seek to enrich the student experience with support for the Global Leadership Experience Program, our many case competitions, and other programming that takes learning beyond the classroom.
