When you take on an MBA+ Joint Degree through the Questrom School of Business, you maximize the unparalleled opportunities that only a world-class research institution like BU can provide.

We partner with several other top-ranked graduate schools on campus to create programs that enhance skill sets, launch careers, and bridge industries. Or, earn both degrees at Questrom with our MBA+ MS in Digital Technology, where you’ll find yourself immersed in a cutting-edge, hands-on learning environment at the intersection of business, analytics, technology, and design.

Whether you’re looking to boost your management savvy in the healthcare industry, gain critical business knowledge in the field of engineering, or tackle the latest issues in technology, when you join Questrom, you join a community of students whose ambition and agility are second to none.

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.
