Questrom School of Business – Boston University
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 nine different programs related to the MBA degree. Along with the traditional full-time MBA, part-time MBA and executive MBA, students can seek out joint degrees that pair the MBA with Digital Innovation, International Relations, Economics, the Health Sector, Social Impact, Manufacturing and the Juris Degree. The school is fully accredited by AACSB International.
