At Boston University Questrom School of Business, we’re constantly evolving our curriculum to address the emerging business needs of the future, and providing our faculty with the support and infrastructure that drives innovation.
On March 30, 2015, we received a record $50 million donation from Allen (Questrom’64, Hon.’15) and Kelli Questrom (Hon.’15) that collectively raised the profile of the newly named Questrom School of Business. The largest in University history, the Questroms’ gift provides substantial resources in support of our efforts to conduct impactful research, provide world-class teaching, and develop new, cutting-edge academic programs.
Strong momentum enables us to recruit highly competitive students, launch curricular innovations, lead a worldwide dialogue on the future of business education, and attract faculty globally recognized for their excellence in research and teaching. As we begin our next chapter as the Questrom School of Business, we’re thrilled to have remarkable faculty leading the charge.
The Boston University community is uniquely collaborative, with curricular and research initiatives that combine disciplines across BU’s multiple schools and colleges. Within Questrom, many faculty participate in team-teaching and cross-disciplinary research. The combination of more than 100 total full-time faculty and access to a network of 16 schools and colleges across the University makes Questrom a truly invigorating place to work.
Did we mention we’re in Boston? The city we call home is a global hub of entrepreneurial resources and businesses, many of which offer consulting opportunities for faculty, enhance Questrom’s research centers and institutes, provide judges for competitions, and sponsor special events. This vibrant, intellectually stimulating city hosts some of the world’s top universities, abundant cultural assets and historical landmarks, and an endless variety of recreational options—all within steps of campus.
