Forward-Thinking Since 1913
A visionary for his time, our founding dean, Everett W. Lord, believed management education should support democracy and human welfare, not just profits.
Now in our second century, we carry those values forward—and continue to think big. And when you think big, big things happen—like the record-breaking, school-renaming gift we received from retail icons Allen (Questrom’64, Hon.’15) and Kelli Questrom (Hon.’15). They’re a couple that embodies the integrity and innovation at the core of Questrom. We gave Allen his start. In 2015, he gave us his name.
In this decade, a new vision guides the School under the leadership of Susan Fournier, Allen Questrom Professor and Dean. Fournier’s focus includes research that matters, programs that inspire, and faculty, staff, and students who care.
Redefining Business Education
At Questrom, we turn ideas into reality, and our forthcoming Online MBA is proof. Designed from the ground up with the global online-learner in mind and rooted in insights gained from over 3,000 international industry professionals, our Online MBA program offers an innovative, rigorous, high-quality curriculum ready to be completed in as little as two years. Simply put, it’s changing the game.
