Suffolk MBA students don’t just learn about global business. They experience it first hand—in Boston and beyond—as they study amidst a uniquely diverse student body. In fact, U.S. News & World Report, recently listed the Suffolk MBA as one of the 10 most diverse MBA programs in the U.S.
At Suffolk, underrepresented minorities, including African-Americans, Latinos, American Indians, and Pacific Islanders, made up 15.5 percent of the full-time MBA students in the fall 2015 class.
Although not noted in the report, Suffolk is also globally diverse. In the fall of 2015, more than 16 percent of all graduate business students were international. This creates a rich learning environment that enables students to think globally and become leaders who can cross borders, embrace new cultures, and offer international perspectives to tomorrow’s business challenges.
In addition to classroom diversity, the Suffolk MBA leverages the University's distinctive downtown Boston location and its deep connections to the city’s world-class industries in biotech, finance, healthcare, and high-tech/start-ups. As part of the program's immersion requirement, students travel regionally, nationally, or globally to work on flash consulting projects for top businesses in these areas.
The Suffolk MBA has the curriculum employers have been asking for. Powered by real-world experience, the program is all about building students’ resumes. Whether it’s through flash consulting projects, business simulations, site visits, or interactive discussions with industry experts, the skills students gain will add significant value to their next job applications. And along the way, they build a powerful global network of top leaders in their fields. In short, the Suffolk MBA is a transformative experience you can’t get anywhere else.
