"At the Boston University School of Management, we work assiduously to educate and train builders and leaders, not simply managers. Our innovative curricula deliver, as you would expect, the essential knowledge of business functions—accounting, finance, marketing, organizational behavior, operations, business law, etc.—but in a unique way.
The difference here is that we help shape our students' capacity to think both functionally and systemically. Our graduates know how to deal well with the measurables at hand, but they also understand the often more important, if less measurable, effects of business decisions across the organization and on the wider society.
Another critical distinction: teaming at our school is not simply "group work." It is carefully constructed to give each member of the team a meaningful stake in the learning and the performance of every other member. It's a proven way to develop leadership skills and deepen individual learning.
This school is housed in a world-class facility in the heart of Boston. Our faculty is made up of gifted scholars whose research impacts the practice of management. They are dedicated teachers working to bring students to their full potential. Our diverse student population is high-achieving, entrepreneurial, and spirited. And our graduates have achieved the highest levels of professional success."
