myQuestrom Student Groups
In our community-focused culture, you’ll find a number of resources and initiatives to shape your ideas, foster your learning and facilitate cultural exchange. Take a look at some of them:
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Conference
Questrom’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Conference is an annual fall event that focuses on diversity as a business advantage, bringing together the Boston University community, industry leaders, and students to share their perspectives on diversity in business. This conference is a collective effort from mulitple student-run graduate clubs as well as a committed group of graduate students who serve on the planning committee.
Asian Business Club
The Asian Business Club aims to provide networking opportunities for our members so that they may exchange information, share experiences, and discover new opportunities through their new contacts. Our goal is to engage the Asian business community within the Boston area to share experiences, knowledge, contacts and opportunities. We strive to provide a forum for discussion about business relevant to all regions of Asia.
Cohort Q is the LGBTQIA+ student organization for the Boston University Questrom School of Business graduate programs. Our mission is to connect LGBTQIA+ students and allies by providing networking and social opportunities, a forum to discuss LGBTQIA+ issues in the workplace, and a community of support for LGBTQIA+ students.
Graduate Students of African Diaspora
Questrom Graduate Students of the African Diaspora (GSAD) is an all-inclusive group open to all Questrom graduate students (Full-Time MBA, PEMBA, MSMS, MSMF, MSBA) and future graduate programs. The mission of the club is to bring representation to Questrom graduate students of the African Diaspora and to host events that stimulate Questrom-wide discussions related to this population in the U.S. and around the world while having fun. GSAD helps promote recruitment efforts of students in the African Diaspora and helps bring a more diverse student population to Questrom, adding to the global and cultural education of every Questrom graduate student. The club promotes awareness of cultural diversity, with the goal to give more voice to this underrepresented group. The club also encourages the participation of those who may not be of African descent, but have an interest in, and want to gain an understanding of, the African Diaspora.
Jewish Business Student Association
The Jewish Business Student Association (JBSA) provides a variety of social, cultural, and educational programming for the Questrom student body surrounding Jewish themes. The Association sponsors social events, presents various speakers, sponsors academic programs, and provides professional networking opportunities. The Association seeks to provide a space for Jewish students to connect, network, and for all students to share in cultural activities and education as a part of the larger myQuestrom network.
Latin American MBA Association
The Latin American MBA Association (LAMBA) seeks to foster a space for open dialogue for all individuals interested in the emerging markets of Latin America, as well as the increasingly important Hispanic marketplaces and issues regarding Latin America in the United States. LAMBA seeks to share our cultural heritage and embrace our diversity as a business advantage and enable the creation of a network of graduate students and U.S. and Latin American business people for the purpose of sharing knowledge and building long-term relationships.
Questrom Veterans Club
The Questrom Veterans Club is aimed at creating support and comradery for Questrom student-veterans. Military service is an uncommon experience that is best understood by those who have worn a uniform. It is important for veterans to remain connected to other veterans, not only as a part of their transition to civilian life or student life, but also to maintain a sense of belonging to a group that can best understand their experiences. Through networking events, volunteer work and awareness raising events, the club will help our student-veterans connect with the greater veteran community of Boston and enhance their time as a student at Questrom.
Women’s MBA Association
The Women’s MBA Association provides career guidance and support to women currently in the MBA, MSMS, MSBA, and MSMFT programs through: Providing access to professional women leaders in different industries, possess a wide range of interests and have built successful careers; educating members about career management, career advancement, and networking; finding mentors and leadership opportunities within and around the Questrom School of Business and Boston University; active participation within the community; establishing a solid relationship amont students, alumni, faculty and women in the greater Boston area, including MBA students from neighboring schools; uniting men and women in addressing issues surrounding women’s advancement in the workplace.
Other Questrom Student Clubs
Student-run organizations are at the core of our graduate program experience and give students a chance to collaborate, learn from each other and nurture their strengths. These organizations give students a platform to interact with the Boston University community, alumni, industry and among themselves. Take a look at our student clubs and organizations and learn about their activities.
Women in Leadership
At Questrom, women are encouraged to be go-getters from the start. Our faculty, staff, resources, clubs, and events empower women to be fearless in their professional pursuits. You’ll thrive in a supportive and inclusive community while learning from successful leaders and enriching your world by listening to others. Successful Questrom alumnae shareed their leadership journeys and lent advice to current students. Some of the Questrom Alumnae that participated included Yvonne Garcia (MBA’03), Chief of Staff to CEO at State Street Corporation & Global Head of Internal Communications, and one of Fortune’s 50 most powerful Latinas; and Julien McCluney (BSBA’02, MBA’09), Vice President, Global Brands at Hasbro.
