About Boston University: Questrom

The Questrom School of Business, formerly known as the Boston University School of Management until 2015, is the business school of Boston University. It traces its roots back to 1913, when it was founded as the College of Business Administration.

The name change to the Questrom school followed a $50 million donation to the university by a former CEO of many departments stores Allen Questrom and his wife Kelli.

The school has about 250 full-time faculty about 200 part-time faculty, research assistants and teaching fellows.

Housed in the Rafik B. Hariri Building, Questrom has over 40 classrooms, five computer labs, a 75-seat lectures hall, 19 team rooms for student meetings, and a library.

The school offers a full-time, part-time, or executive MBA. There are also several MBA dual degree programmes which operate in conjunction with other Boston University schools, including with the School of Law, the School of Medicine, the School of Public Health, the Graduate College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Engineering and the College of Communication.

The Master of Science in Management Studies, a nine-month programme for students without a business background, allows them to tackle real-time issues with companies such as Novartis, AT&T and Fidelity.

Notable former alumni include vice chairman of Johnson & Johnson Christine Poon, CEO of JC Penney and namesake of the school Allen Questrom, lieutenant governor of Rhode Island Elizabeth H. Roberts, and director of the National Security Agency (NSA) Keith Alexander.
