Questrom School of Business – Boston University

History

The Boston University School of Management was founded in 1913, with the MBA program beginning in 1925. In March 2015, the school was renamed the Questrom School of Business in honor of a $50 million endowment gift from alumnus and retail industry leader Allen Questrom, his wife, Kelli, and the Allen and Kelli Questrom Foundation. Questrom successfully transformed several of the nation’s largest department and specialty stores, including JCPenney, Neiman Marcus, and Barneys New York.

The school offers eight different programs related to the MBA degree. Along with the traditional full-time MBA, part-time MBA and executive MBA, students can seek out a Health Sector MBA or a Public & Nonprofit MBA, either full- or part-time, as well as a one-year International MBA. The Questrom School of Business also supports an undergraduate program, a doctoral program, an MS in Mathematical Finance, and various dual MBA/MS degrees. The school is fully accredited by AACSB International.
