The world is changing,
but most business schools are not.
Global change is transforming
everything around us.
And it calls for something new.

A different type of school,

a different type of career.

You’ll need the instincts of an entrepreneur.
You’ll need to learn through real experience.
You’ll need more than the status quo.

Because your time is irreplaceable.

And your ideas can change everything.

This is why we exist.

This is why we are different.

A new kind of business school

However, business practices remain resolutely local.
Attitudes to things like timekeeping, communication style,
and consensus building are deeply rooted in the local
culture. Failure to navigate these fundamental differences
is a major reason for not succeeding in international
business. As a result, employers are increasingly looking to
hire people with the ability to operate in a culturally
diverse environment.

David Ferreira, Class of 2018, discusses alternative Learn to work across cultures
strategies with his classmates in San Francisco.
The classroom diversity at Hult is unparalleled. Over the
course of their degree, the average Hult student will work
directly with teammates of over 30 different nationalities.
Exposure to this broad range of cultures ensures that you
graduate with a true appreciation of cultural differences
and a deep understanding of how to navigate these
effectively and sensitively in a working environment.
You can also choose to take advantage of Hult’s global
campus network to gain on-the-ground experience of
international business around the world. Encompassing
Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, Shanghai, and
New York—our unique Global Campus Rotation enables
you to study in up to three locations within your one-year
program. Almost half of all students take advantage of
the opportunity to study at more than one campus and
experience different cultures, explore employment options,
or simply visit family and friends.

Graduate with a global mindset

Whichever route you choose through Hult, you are
guaranteed to learn what makes other cultures tick, gain an
international perspective on business, and graduate with
friends and connections all over the world—an incredibly
valuable asset in your international career. Being immersed
in the diversity at Hult will change the way you see the

Traditional businesses are struggling because, unlike
historic innovations that developed linearly over time,
these new technologies are growing at unprecedented

been caught off guard by the impact these disruptive
technologies have had on whole industries in such a short

At Hult, you will learn the basics of these disruptive
