BU’s MSMS Program Planning: full speed ahead for the fall

I’m so excited to be a part of BU’s MSMS Program this academic year. So much of the curriculum is project based and this morning we had our latest planning meeting with the Mei Mei restaurant team. They’re going to be engaging our students for long-term strategic planning assistance. Our next meeting will be with Swaponz. These two projects will round out our first project module, after the students complete their simulation work. Check out the pics below.


MSMS students work on a collaborative team in a dedicated space to solve real problems with real companies in real time. It all happens in Boston, a city that’s launching the next generation of innovation in everything from technology to health care to nonprofits.

With the MSMS, you’ll pivot into a desirable career in business in only nine months. You’ll add valuable business expertise to your undergraduate skill set so you can make an even bigger impact in the field.

The MSMS program attracts students who are drawn to the business side of things, students who are natural leaders. They have a sharp intellect, a bias towards action, and confidence with the technical. Sound like you? The MSMS could be your perfect fit.

We consider the whole picture when reviewing applicants. Here are some things we look for:

Current undergraduate senior or graduate of a non-business bachelor’s program within the past two years:

  • Academic performance in analytic or technical coursework
  • Leadership experience in student or professional organizations
  • Other extra-curricular activities
  • Ability to articulate the value of this program in helping you achieve long-term goals
  • Ability to demonstrate your skills or accomplishments through the submission of video essays

The program is run by co-directors Susan Jung Grant and Ray Wilson.
