The No. 1 Reason Boston Is the Best B-School City

Whether it means beginning your MBA journey in a new city (like Kevin Barry, BC MBA ’17), or returning to your hometown (like Annie Charlip, BC MBA ’17), our students consistently deem Boston the best city for earning an MBA. When it comes down to the number one reason why, this is it…

Industry opportunities. 

Economically and technologically, Boston is thriving. With a healthy economy and the tools to accommodate a growing workforce, there is no shortage of startups, established companies, and organizations from which to learn valuable business lessons and complete real-time projects. (Read about the consulting project.)

With that said, BC MBA students aren’t just gaining experiential learning opportunities in a city filled with business professionalsthey’re being recruited by them, too. In fact, a number of our MBA internship employers and hiring companies are headquartered right here in Boston. Here’s just a sampling:

  • Analogic Corporation
  • Boston Scientific
  • EMC
  • Fidelity Investments
  • John Hancock
  • Liberty Mutual
  • Rue La La
  • Santander Bank

While there are countless other reasons Boston is a great city for MBAs (read more reasons here), it’s the room to thrive that draws our students here—and often keeps them around long term.
