The University

Since 1964, Hult International Business School has been striving to deliver the most practical and global business education with curricula designed by business leaders and taught by world class faculty with hands-on business experience. Hult is the world?s largest and most international business school, offering its students an unrivaled global perspective. Students work alongside peers from over 140 nationalities who collectively speak 105 languages, and join a 9,000-strong alumni network upon graduation. The Financial Times and The Economist consistently rank Hult in the Top 100 Business Schools in the world. Furthermore, through its renowned and unique Global Rotation program, students have the opportunity to study and visit Hult?s locations in Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, Shanghai, and New York. Hult is non-profit corporation organized in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and accredited by the NEASC and Association of MBAs, meaning our students can study internationally and graduate with a U.S. degree.

The Business School



Hult is on the cutting edge of business education; we are the first business school to completely redesign its curriculum based on what employers want from graduates. With a focus on hands-on business education, Hult equips students with both hard and soft skills, as well as real-world experience. At Hult we believe that adapting to change in the world is not enough; we actively seek out new and better ways of doing things to lead positive change in the students? industries and communities. The school organizes the largest business school competition for social change in the world ? the Hult Prize. The Hult Prize is a start-up accelerator for social good and dedicated to launching the next wave of social entrepreneurs through identifying, advising, funding, and introducing revolutionary social businesses.

The Program


Addressing feedback from leading CEOs and employers on the effectiveness of the standard MBA curriculum, our groundbreaking new program fully integrates teaching interpersonal soft skills and practical business application into the curriculum. This ensures our MBA students graduate with critical skills and real-world experience, in addition to knowledge of core business areas. Hult?s MBA helps you apply business concepts learned to real situations through competitive simulations and the Hult Impact Challenge. At Hult, you also have the opportunity to work alongside peers of 140 nationalities and study at up to three of our six global locations. Imagine starting your MBA program in SHanghai and then spending time in London and New York before graduating with all your classmates at our Global MBA Summit in Davos, Switzerland. It?s a truly life-changing experience only Hult can deliver.

In addition to the full time, one year program, Hult also offers an Executive MBA.

Hult?s Executive MBA program is a part-time MBA designed for professionals who seek to enhance their credentials and knowledge while gaining an international perspective. It offers a high degree of flexibility to accommodate a wide range of student needs, from class location to program length and financing. The curriculum is delivered over two years instead of one, allowing busy professionals to continue working while pursuing their degree. The monthly schedule minimizes your time away from the office, amounting to only two days off work a month. The Executive MBA program is offered in London, Shanghai, and Dubai.

The Faculty


Unlike other business schools that are research-oriented, 80% of Hults faculty have real-world experience. Many have worked for companies like P&G, Motorola, and Credit Suisse, while others have run their own businesses or created their own patents. Hult empowers students to develop their own real-world skills by completing a six-week Action Project consulting for a Fortune 500company like Levis, Philips, Xerox, or IBM. This reinforces our mission to prepare job-ready graduates who can deliver results from day one.
