Our MBA students don’t believe in business as usual. They’re committed to making waves in the field, and come here to challenge themselves and the future of management. They don’t want to just keep pace with the shifting business landscape, they want to be several steps ahead of it. A Full-Time MBA from Boston University Questrom School of Business launches them there, and shows the marketplace they have what it takes to make an impact.
At Questrom, you’ll study in a national hub of innovation. You’ll tackle issues that matter, issues that are redefining the global economy. Speaking of, you’ll witness it firsthand during an international field seminar in Asia, Brazil, or India. Our MBAs aren’t just prepared for the real world—they’re immersed in it. Are you ready to cause disruption?
Admission to Questrom is growing more and more competitive. Students here are dynamic, eager learners, ready to take on an MBA program that transforms them into the leader they want to be.
The Graduate Admissions Committee considers the whole picture when reviewing applicants. We look at professional background, leadership skills, academic credentials, and diversity. We seek candidates who are team-oriented, who are prone to collaboration, and who consider themselves global citizens. Our goal: to create a class rich in ideas, cultures, and life experiences, so you expand your outlook and gain new insights.
Think we’re a good fit? We encourage applicants from all backgrounds—not just business—to apply to Questrom. We look forward to hearing from you!
When you’re ready to apply, start with our online application form. You may submit one application per entry term, and you can check the status of an existing application at any time. Review our admissions checklist to stay on top of required materials, and keep an eye on our deadlines, too.
Feel free to contact us with any questions along the way. We want the admissions process to be as simple and transparent as possible. Reach out to the Graduate Admissions Office at (617) 353-2670 or email@example.com.
The Graduate Admissions Office keeps all records on file for one year. We welcome your re-application.
Each re-applicant is required to submit a new application form and fee ($125); an essay discussing updates or changes since the time of the previous application, as well as reasons for re-applying; an updated resume; a new letter of recommendation; official university-level transcripts (if the re-applicant has taken new coursework since the time of their first application); and updated GMAT or GRE results (if applicable).
In response to the concerns around Covid-19, all evaluative admissions interviews will be conducted via Zoom until further notice. If you are asked to complete an admissions interview, we will send you all of the details that you will need to register and conduct this conversation virtually.
The Questrom admissions committee interviews a significant number of applicants for our portfolio of graduate programs. The interview is an evaluative component of the application process and is conducted by a member of the admissions committee. We offer pre-application interviews before our first deadline in October, as well as on an invitation-only basis once the application has been submitted to the Graduate Admissions Office.
Between July 13, 2021 and October 19,2021 prospective MBA students can request an evaluative interview with a member of the admissions committee prior to submitting an application for admission. All interviews will be conducted on select Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9:30am – 12:30pm or 1:00- 4:00pm EDT via Zoom.
To request a pre-application evaluative interview, please complete our pre-application interview form here.
For your reference, you will be required to submit your resume. You are also welcome to submit test scores (GMAT or GRE and TOEFL/IELTS/PTE as appropriate) with your request, however these are not required in order to request a pre-application interview. The admissions committee will respond to your request within 3 business days.
Please note: This will serve as your formal interview and will be used to evaluate you in the admissions process should you decide to submit an application for 2022 entry. You will not be granted another interview after submitting an application if you have conducted a pre-application interview. If you are not yet ready for an evaluative interview but would still like to meet us, connect with us at one of our upcoming events.
Application Fee Waiver Eligibility
Application Fee Waiver Eligibility
The Graduate Admissions Office will waive the application fee for current BU employees, as well as for those who attended select admissions events and off-site fairs.
In addition, we will waive the application fee for those who are members or alumni of the following programs:
|The US Military||AmeriCorps||Education Pioneers|
|Management Leadership for
Tomorrow MBA Fellows
|Teach for America||Historically Black Colleges|
|The Peace Corps||City Year Corps||Hispanic Serving Institutions|
To take advantage of this waiver, please fill out this form once your application has been started. Your CAS ID can be found at the top right of the online application. Once we process your fee waiver request, you’ll receive a follow-up email with additional instructions on how to submit your application. DO NOT click “submit and pay for programs” prior to receiving these instructions. We are unable to offer application fee refunds.
Due to the high volume of applications we receive, your application fee waiver may take a few business days to process. If you submit this request before or on one of our application deadlines but do not receive a confirmation from us that same day, your application will still be considered “on time” for the deadline to which you applied. You must submit your waiver request before you submit your application in order for the fee waiver to be applied.
Please note: If you have been approved for an application fee waiver and are applying to one of our dual degree programs, the application fee waiver will be applied to your Questrom application only. You will still need to pay the required application fee for the other school at BU to which you are applying.
The Full-Time MBA is a rigorous program that requires both academic and quantitative aptitude. In response to COVID-19, we are not requiring a GMAT or GRE score for candidates who apply to the Full-Time MBA for 2022 entry. The admissions committee will look for evidence of academic and quantitative aptitude through other areas of your application, such as undergraduate performance and any other coursework taken. You will not be penalized in the application review process if you choose not to submit a GMAT/GRE test score.
Things to consider:
- Students are welcome to submit test scores to strengthen their applications, and test scores submitted will be considered in the admission decision process.
- For students with a low grade point average, a test score can provide admissions officers with additional information about their potential to succeed in the classroom. If you feel that you do not have sufficient evidence in your previous coursework that demonstrates your true academic and quantitative aptitude, you may want to consider submitting a GMAT or GRE score to enhance your application.
- The admissions committee may, in rare cases, still ask you to submit a GMAT or GRE score to aid in evaluating your candidacy for the Full-Time MBA program. In the event we need this additional information, we will inform you once your application has been initially reviewed.
