A business degree is about more than just crunching numbers. A truly valuable business education is about equipping individuals with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to spark positive change across a variety of arenas and to make an impact that matters — in the workplace, in individual communities, and in the world at large.
If you are looking for the unique life skills that a business education offers, Hult International Business School can be your launchpad. Hult has carved out a niche in the business school world by prioritising challenge-based, experiential learning. Here, you’ll learn by doing, propelled by an innovative curriculum designed to equip you with the skills and mindset to advance your career — something Ibrahim Demir, a Hult MBA graduate, experienced.
“Hult prepares us for what’s coming after our studies — a big advantage over traditional schools,” Demir says. “Cross-cultural business is always a challenge; at Hult, it is part of your everyday experience. You get so used to considering this that it becomes natural, as it should be! Hult’s connection to the real world has made me understand how my studies will be applied in my future career.”
Hult holds the coveted triple accreditation (AACSB, AMBA, and EQUIS) — a badge of honour held by only 1% of business schools globally. In 2023, Hult continued to excel in rankings, securing a spot among the Top 100 in over 20 prestigious lists. Notably, the school achieved its highest-ever rankings in the Financial Times for its Masters in International Business and Executive MBA programmes, and continues to rise in Fortune’s Best MBA rankings.
Ask graduates, however, and they’ll add another differentiator: Hult’s global perspective. With campuses in major business hubs including London, Boston, San Francisco, and Dubai, Hult has a diverse student body representing some 150 nationalities. And no one single nationality dominates, ensuring a richness of perspectives in every classroom discussion and project. This immersive experience prepares you for the realities of the interconnected global workforce, readying you to thrive in any corner of the world.
“In any given year, we’ll have somewhere between 80 and 100 nationalities in postgraduate programmes on the London campus alone, and that means if you’re in an MBA cohort of 70 students, you’re probably going to have 45 nationalities in there,” says Ian Dougal, Dean of Academic Affairs. “That makes for just a tremendous experience from an MBA learning perspective.”
Hult’s unique Global Campus Rotation programme takes this international focus even further. The programme allows you to choose a home campus for your core studies and seamlessly rotate to other vibrant hubs. Imagine mastering biotech in Boston, exploring Silicon Valley’s tech innovation, delving into sustainable businesses in Mexico City as part of Hult City Seminars, or uncovering the fashion sector’s secrets in Dubai — all while building a network that spans borders. For those seeking deeper connections in one city, you can choose to do so as Hult offers the option to stay on one campus throughout your entire schooling.
Business degrees designed to challenge, across a global campus network
The school offers a range of postgraduate and MBA programmes and the US-accredited Doctorate in Business Administration. Whichever you choose, you’ll be supported by professors who are internationally renowned for business practice and thought leadership. Accredited and ranked amongst the best in the world, each programme at Hult will provide you with the skills and mindsets most needed to bring about change in the organisations in which you work and the society in which we all live.
If you’re seeking a one-year master’s degree, Hult’s London campus offers an unparalleled immersion into the heart of the global business. The programmes include International Business, International Marketing, Finance, Business Analytics, and more. The best part? London becomes your classroom with its buzzing startup scene (over 200,000 startups call the English capital home), 40% European HQs of global companies, and a world-renowned financial district. You’ll learn from leading practitioners, tackle real-world challenges, and network with future industry titans — all while enjoying the vibrant energy of one of the world’s most dynamic cities. Just ask Jasmin Manzano, a Hult Master’s in International Marketing graduate who benefited from these perks.
“People from every part of the world, intense class debates, skills in all aspects of business and marketing, and my dream job — Hult offered me all this and more,” Manzano says.
What makes Hult’s MBA programmes stand out is how they arm students with in-demand skills employers covet — practical, applicable, and imbued with a global mindset. Graduates become adept at cross-cultural collaboration, wielding cutting-edge technologies to shape the future and cultivate the self-awareness that fuels confident leadership.
And thanks to professional coaching and high-tech simulations, learning is experiential — an approach that sets graduates up for day-one success. Hence, it’s little wonder that 95% of MBA graduates from the class of 2022 were employed after three months, while 93% changed industries. “Our curriculum emphasises practical learning, steering away from textbooks to incorporate current and relevant materials like TED talks,” Dougal says. “Our approach to assessments has evolved significantly in recent years. We’ve moved away from traditional exams and lengthy essays. Instead, we focus on real-world tasks that mirror professional scenarios.”
Such assessments involve practical assignments such as creating marketing plans and conducting SWOT analyses of companies. Presentation skills are crucial, with assignments often requiring a 10-minute presentation and 12 PowerPoint slides. “We find this approach better reflects the demands of the working environment than traditional exams, which are rarely used in our assessments,” Dougal says.
