Boston University’s Questrom School of Business boasts the highest ranked Executive MBA program in both Boston and New England. It’s also one of the smallest and most intimate of the quality experiences for executives. The latest cohort is an impressive group of mid-to-senior managers with 10+ years of professional experience. Some 27% already have advanced degrees, and currently enrolled students have an average of 15 years of professional experience with nine years of managerial experience.
The program focuses on management as a system, a cross-functional understanding of the interdependencies among organizations’ components. It also offers a global component through a concentrated international module and trip designed to provide an understanding of the factors that frame the business context in developed and developing economies.
The program begins in January and concludes in late June of the following year, and encompasses four integrated components: five modules occurring on Fridays and Saturdays every other week for 18 months; case discussions, a team-based assignment in each module; four week-long residential sessions including one international session; and a capstone project involving the creation of an integrated business plan during the final module.
