This semester, Questrom changed its start time for evening classes from 6:00pm to 6:30pm. This hasn’t been a popular decision for part-time students. Students (and sometimes professors) were baffled by the decision to change the class start time. Part-time professors thought students wanted it, but students don’t want it at all! In case you were wondering, here’s the real reason for the change in the start time.
Boston University offers field seminars that allow Questrom students to travel around the world for 1-2 weeks to business in a variety of industries. There are a variety of locations to choose from, including Asia, India, Latin America, Europe, and Silicon Valley. These field seminars are essentially 3-credit elective courses, similar to intensives. There is an additional cost to cover housing and accommodations and students are responsible for airfare and incidentals. If you are interested, be sure to keep your eye out for emails disclosing when info sessions are and when applications are being accepted. (Upcoming info sessions listed at the end of this post.) They are first come, first served, so be sure to apply early if you want to guarantee your spot in the program.
Taking classes during the summer can help you finish your degree faster— but it can be tough to spend your summer in class while your coworkers and family are taking time off. If you’re going to push through as quickly as possible it’s good to make sure the class will be a good experience. If you’re trying to decide which summer course is best, check out the online course ratings for all of the Questrom summer courses from the last two summers. We broke down the data for you.
Time management is tough enough as it is when you’re working full time, going to school part-time, keeping your personal life intact, and trying to have some semblance of a social life all at once. But when you throw travel into the mix, that changes the game completely. Most professors are pretty accommodating when it comes to work-related travel so if you need to miss a class or two, it’s rarely much of an issue. However, missing class creates other challenges - catching up may take time, you may miss important announcements, you may miss team meetings, etc. So here are a few pointers when planning your travel.
Did you know that you can access the evaluations of any course at Questrom School of Business? This can help you decide between professors, know what to expect from a professor’s course, get ready for an intensive, and find out if other students felt the same way about a class or instructor.
You likely know by now that a professor either makes a class or breaks it. Overall Boston University does a good job picking the professors, especially on graduate level. But even then, some professors are just chefs of their kitchen, and every meal is worth it. So here are some tips on how to pick your professors.
