Student Life

Boston College boasts an “unbelievably beautiful” campus, and the location in the bustling city of Boston has many obvious benefits. Carroll School of Management’s stu­dents tend to be “motivated and outgoing” men and women in their “late twenties to early thirties.” The student body is “focused because they are balancing work and school, but are friendly and want to network.” The nature of the business program can make some students “competitive,” yet most students are “willing to help” and “interested in advancing their careers and those of their peers.” The environment is unlike “the cut­throat and pretentious culture that is infamous at other schools.” “Everyone knows one another because it is a small class,” and there are always events going on both on cam­pus and off.

Students Say

Boston College’s Carroll School of Management’s “brand reputation” is second to none, especially “in the Boston area.” “People around here think that it’s Harvard,” one stu­dent proudly reports. Boston College has everything an MBA student could want, including “Boston location, small class size, great culture, strong alumni network, mix of theoretical and practical learning, affordable tuition, [and] good scholarships.” “Boston College offered me the best combination of ranking and scholarship,” an Oil and Energy student explains. “Additionally, Boston is a great city and the campus is awesome.” The “opportunities provided by the city of Boston” are ample, and the Carroll School of Management has a “strong influence” in the city’s thriving business community. The “reputation and quality of professors” is a big draw for Boston College. Professors wield “a diverse array of learning tools (lecture, cases, group exercises, etc.)” and “make themselves entirely available and are supportive of personal goals in addition to class­room objectives.” The “excellent” administration also gets high marks from students. “They work hard to get you registered and setup [and] support the learning experience.” Basically, at Boston College the faculty “care about the student’s success and the admin­istration is there to make it happen.” The school is responsive to student feedback too, taking it “very seriously and implement[ing] changes accordingly.” Although some stu­dents did wish the school would “offer [more] online courses.” The “small class sizes” provide intimate learning environments of business students and an “emphasis on hands-on learning.” However, being housed in Boston College means students at the Carroll School of Management get “the perfect blend of a small program with large resources from a major academic institution.” A financial services student sums their decision to attend thusly: “After talking to alumni, the pride they had in BC was something I knew I wanted to be a part of.”
