Management is not for everyone. Neither is this master's degree. We're different. BU’s forward-thinking approach to management education is the fusion of theoretical, experiential, and innovative knowledge at its best. Nothing about our suite of master’s degree programs reiterates the past. Our distinguished faculty constantly contributes to the future of business. We think about what’s next—and teach our students to do the same.

  • Internationally Acclaimed Faculty: Coming from seven nations, our full-time, PhD-level faculty members are not only recognized internationally for academic excellence and their remarkable research contributions, but they have also held key management positions for some of the world's leading companies.
  • Global Classroom: Students can travel, study, and network abroad through our international partnerships with top business schools, while also working on virtual team projects with a dynamic group of peers and a variety of practitioners from several continents.
  • Uniquely BU Community: We're committed to bringing our students together through the use of online technology, key networks, and the ability to learn from the same faculty who teach on campus. This is how we deliver a consistent, high-quality BU education, regardless of delivery mode.
  • International Accreditation: Boston University, the Metropolitan College Administrative Sciences Department, and our Graduate Programs in Management are recognized for academic excellence by the world's leading accrediting bodies: AAU, AACSB, EPAS, PMI, and NEASC.
