With female-identifying students making up 44% of the School’s most recent full-time MBA class, Questrom is leading the charge for gender parity in MBA programs and is committed to creating an inclusive learning environment where women feel supported and empowered.
“MBA programs can be very male-dominated,” shares Sarah Wigman (’17). “At Questrom, that’s not the case. I never felt singled-out as a woman… I felt like a student, a human being, a person who deserved success, and a partner in the community.”
Questrom is also tied for 3rd place in number of female faculty with 36%. Questrom is committed to not only furthering the experiences of their female MBA candidates, but also creating a holistic roster of professors and leaders.
“Finding women in leadership roles at Questrom is not hard: we occupy important positions in the administration and in faculty service. In my experience, both as a leader and as a member of a team being led by a woman, I don’t give it a moment’s thought; it is standard operating procedure here,” says Kabrina Chang, clinical associate professor of markets, public policy, & law.
The array of faculty, staff, resources, clubs, and events at Questrom all encourage women to be fearless in their professional pursuits. Between the Women’s MBA Association, a student-led group that provides career guidance and support to women, the Questrom Women’s Summit, an annual experience for all BU faculty, alumnae, students, and distinguished speakers to connect, and the School’s annual Diversity & Inclusion conference, it’s clear that Questrom takes the role of women in business seriously. As a Women.MBA partner school, Questrom also offers policies and practices to support female applicants.
