What Our Students Say

  • “As a career switcher, I wanted to be a part of a culture where the students helped each other. I knew this was a place for me to spread my wings a bit. By involving myself in aspects of the Questrom community, I have had an opportunity to learn about different cultures, but also teach my classmates about my culture and the black experience.”

    Winston Jones, Full-time MBA ‘17
  • “I believe if you’re going to spend eight or more hours a day doing something, you might as well do something good for the world. Questrom showed me that there are a lot of good people in the business world. Business, profits, ethics, and having a social impact don’t have to be mutually exclusive."

    Marivi González Biurrun, Social Impact Full-time MBA ‘19
  • “BU’s MBA program is a relatively small program that gives you the opportunity to actually get to know most of your peers. That would be very difficult if there were 1,000 students. I wanted a school where I would learn a great deal from every person I met."

    Carlos A. Santaella Punceles, Full-time MBA ‘18
