The Carroll School of Management at Boston College stands by rigorous academics paired with internships, study trips, and part-time work to send work-ready students into professional positions. The first year is a “thoughtful” core curriculum which covers a wide range of topics from operations to accounting through which the class progresses in cohort, followed by a second year of electives based on functional skills, allowing students to “develop a strong specialization” in a business area of their choosing. The administration is “remarkably” responsive to student questions and suggestions, and “administrators are always available for a phone conversation.” Life at Carroll is “academically challenging” with engaging professors “who teach theory as well as provide experiential learning opportunities.” The small program size contributes to a very close class and “promotes a supportive environment.” Faculty at Carroll is “a great mix of academics and industry professionals,” who “all seem to genuinely enjoy teaching and are easily accessible outside of class.” The real world professional background of teachers is “helpful in conveying key business concepts,” and there are “lots of distinct personalities that have varied industry experiences but are committed to teaching.” Nearly all professors “show significant interest in connecting with students and providing real academic value,” and “certain professors at BC offer once in a lifetime courses.” The workload “depends heavily on the discipline” the student is focusing on, and there is “a wide range of courses offered for a smaller program.”
