Dean’s Welcome

Boston University welcomes you! As globalization appears to make 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 BU’s 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. As part of Boston University, MET’s business programs are accredited by AACSB International―The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

Instrumental to our global outreach, MET International forges partnerships with outstanding academic institutions across the globe to bring their students to our U.S. programs. The mutual benefits are indisputable—our classrooms are enriched by diverse insights, customs, and traditions, while partner students gain exceptional preparation for the global business environment through study in Boston.

Engaging with people, ideas, and pressing issues that impact the world has always been vital to the mission of the University and MET. Simply put, global engagement is in our DNA. In the wake of the 2016 presidential election, Boston University wishes to underscore its commitment to diversity and inclusion.

I invite you to learn more about our programs, faculty, and university—and to consider the benefits of an educational partnership with us.

To your future,

Tanya Zlateva
