Dual Degrees, International Field Seminars, Cross-Registration, and More -
First-Year MBA Student Shironda White Reflects on the Many Opportunities Questrom Has To Offer

“I couldn’t decide between Israel and Latin America,” Shironda White said of the International Field Seminar options.  “So I’m going to both.”  Shironda, a first-year MBA candidate, is gearing up for a fourth module (quarter) of jet setting around the world as part of her MBA experience.  With the eventual goal of eradicating food deserts in the US, she chose the Israel Field Seminar for its focus on entrepreneurial ecosystems and the Latin America Field Seminar for its focus on supply chain sustainability and corporate social responsibility (with trips that include wine tasting and learning about agriculture and aquaculture).
Questrom’s MBA offerings are unique in that they provide students with opportunities for outside study, whether it’s across the campus or around the globe.  Cross-registration and dual degree programs at other BU schools are common, as are the international field seminars in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and other regions.

"This is one of the reasons I chose Questrom" Shironda says of the options she has to choose from.  "I wanted to study abroad, but not necessarily in just one place.  I'm also interested in cross-registering at the Law School and the School of Public Health, and not every business school allows cross-registration.  Questrom truly gives me the opportunity to chart my own path.”
