First year evening students have the option of joining a Cohort, so you are with the same 50 students in first year classes. I thought this was a great way to really get to know everyone in the program and create a network from the beginning. There are great options to study internationally and both part-time and full-time students can participate. The professors are very available for help.

Admissions

The application was very straight-forward and could be done completely online. The questions on both applicant essays and recommendation forms were more challenging than the other schools to which I applied. They also require an interview for admittance.

Small to mid class sizes allow for personal interaction. The CORE curriculum in undergraduate junior year is an incredible and unique practical experience that is unrivaled - particularly amongst the other business programs I considered at BC, Cornel, Miami and Dartmouth. The practical application and very helpful career center helps to balance of the academics with a sound practical knowledge. BU's international community and study abroad programs is second to none. The workload and grading is challenging but is fair - hard working and bright students will see just rewards.

Academic programs in the BU MBA are fantastic. The professors blend the case method with their own experience to deliver an elite educational experience.

Quality of Life

The cost of living, thanks to location, is expensive. The experience, however, is fantastic. The campus facilities are excellent and contribute to the overall quality of the experience.

The application asks for GMAT scores, all transcripts, four essays, and interviews by invitation only.

High quality of class content, competitive format encourages participation as important to grade. Unique international programs include field seminars in various countries and encourage partnership with foreign schools and businesses. Majority of faculty have distinction in their fields especially in the fields of finance and technology.

Quality of Life

Boston location is convenient but expensive. Crime tends to be low. Library and computer labs are adequate to meet student demand. Many cultural and social opportunities lead to a good overall happiness level among students. School offers various opportunities for networking.

Admissions

Multiple essays, references, GMAT, work experience (CV), personal interview all required. No financial aid was required. School seemed selective with demanding entry requirements but not as much as Ivy League schools.

Class size is typically around 30-40 students per class. Highly diverse group - career experience and ethnicity. Strong focus on logistical analysis, but also well balanced with common sense and big picture thinking. Very competitive in terms of level of thinking that goes on amongst students.

Admissions

I belive the percentage of acceptance vs. applied is moderately low meaning it is a fairly competitve admissions process. Average GMAT scores were very high. The interview process was thorough and they really promote 3-4 years of career experience between undergraduate and graduate.

High quality classes, challenging workload. More credits required than many business programs. Good mix of lecture, case and project work. Very practical projects and opportunities to work with organizations in Boston. Research opportunities with top professors. International Field Seminars. Small class sizes (50 for core, 15-25 for electives). Super accessible faculty.

Unique comprehensive dual degree programs and specialty programs in Economics, Information systems, Nonprofit and Public Management, Media Studies, Healthcare.

Concentrations in marketing, finance, strategy, operations, healthcare, nonprofit management etc.

Access to courses in other great grad schools at BU.

Quality of Life

Great gym and student union with a variety food. Excellent library within the school of management, and others on campus. Starbucks and cafe in the building. Lots of housing and restaurants in the area and others easily accessible by public transportation. I think that most students are happy on campus and many are involved with the community through different volunteer activities. I feel secure on campus and in my neighborhood, and the school is very transparent about sharing information through its alert system. Cost of living is high in Boston, but comparable to other major cities. I moved from San Dieog, and did not make many changes to my budget.

Admissions

4 application questions. Competitive GMAT required. Invitation only interview. Competitive financial aid and merit based scholarships.
