Graduate School of Management

Changing people, organizations, and the world

To a degree, all business schools teach similar skills. But the learning environment and the underlying philosophy are what separate Boston University School of Management from the others. We’re passionate about educating leaders who focus on adding value—to their organization, their community, and the world.

We’re seeking students who want their lives’ work to be meaningful, and we’re dedicated to making their education the most relevant it can be. Best of all, we provide a multitude of pathways to get there.

We’re seeking students who embrace a culture of innovation, cooperation, and willingness to change. Our goal is clear: to prepare our graduates to be every recruiter’s first choice. We’re educating executives to shape the future, and create value for the world.
