One of the things I appreciate about BC’s Carroll School of Management is that you get the baseline knowledge in accounting, economics, and marketing—and it’s quantitatively based, which is the language of business.

In business school, you have the opportunity to embrace all possibilities to learn from your peers and professors. You will learn that there’s always another method you never realized to accomplish tasks, big or small.
