About School of Management

Boston University School of Management educates leaders who add value to their organizations, their communities, and the world. We have evolved our curricula to integrate the three most vital and rapidly growing sectors of the world economy: digital technology, energy and the environment, and health. We optimize business education for a fast-changing world by providing insight into these sectors and a practical foundation in the functional management disciplines, business ethics, social responsibility, and global perspective. Our graduates anticipate change, harness it, and make it work for their organizations.
