The B-school had been more lenient each year with their admissions process, with an acceptance rate of 48.21% for the Class of 2023 as compared to the Class of 2021’s 40.11%, and the Class of 2020’s 37.79%.

Hult’s No. 36 rank is due to its stellar performance in the Alumni Experience category, where alumni rated their experience as 13th-best of all schools ranked.
With four different campuses including Boston, London, Dubai, and San Francisco, Hult offers a truly international degree that aims to provide its students with a global business mindset and a repertoire of in-demand skills.
PRACTICAL APPLICATION-FOCUSED CURRICULUM
Hult’s Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) is designed around the widely-agreed upon truth that to master a skill—any skill—it must be practiced. Practical learning challenges are integrated into the entire program, ensuring students understand the relevant theory while developing the mindsets and skills essential for a career.
Through live client consulting, hackathons, business simulations, and complex team projects, students apply contemporary theory to creatively solve the challenges businesses are facing right now.
Each year of the degree, students can choose to study at one or many of Hult’s campuses in central Boston or London, with optional Summer Programs in Boston, London, San Francisco, and Dubai. Students with study alongside others of over 150 nationalities across campuses and gain international experience and differentiate themselves as global professionals.
Hult students are assessed throughout the BBA program on the essential mindsets and skills that make an exceptional businessperson—and what matters most to employers. Each student has a personal career and development coach that will work with them to evaluate their skills, better understand their strengths and weaknesses, and help to connect all of their learnings with future career goals.
FOUR UNIQUE CAMPUSES
Hult offers its curriculum across four different campuses. London and Boston are the home campuses, with Dubai and San Francisco being summer rotation campuses. The benefits of having such an expansive presence is two-fold: On one hand, students can gain a truly global perspective in their education. Hult is home to students from 150 nationalities, with no more than 8% of students from any one nationality.
“The business program was very open and diverse,” one 2018 alumni said. “We had professors and students from many different areas of the world. This opened my eyes to many different perspectives.”
On the other hand, a global presence makes the Hult degree valuable and recognized. Hult students can graduate with both a U.S. and U.K. degree and the B-school is the only U.S. school to be accredited by the three most prestigious accrediting bodies: AACSB, EQIUS, and AMBA.
Hult graduates have remarkably strong employment outcomes. This year, the Class of 2023 saw 96.39% of their class landing a full-time job within three months of graduation – down slightly from their extremely high rate of 98% for the Class of 2022. Consistent with the past three years, 70% of the Class of 2023 had a business-focused internship before graduating.
The practical application of Hult’s curriculum and its unique global rotational opportunities are the aspects that make a Hult degree one worth pursuing.
“We had group projects with live clients all the time almost in every class I took. They were extremely beneficial as rather than submitting an assignment to the professors, we were instead proposing a solution/project to real companies. This really made a difference in the learning curve and the motivation to give in 100% at all times.”
“Going to Hult is a global immersion. Students are from all around the world which makes classes even more special. Also, I studied in London and San Francisco which enriched my global experience at Hult.”
“Hult offers seamless campus rotation programs across 5 campuses on 3 continents and encourages all students to participate. I’ve done two rotations (San Francisco – USA and Dubai – UAE) and gained incredible insights on how to do business and understand different cultures in today’s globalized world.”
“I got to take the Hult Founders Lab, Hult’s startup incubator, as my capstone and developed my company. It was a mainly practical class, which helped me a lot at the time and will for sure have a great impact in the rest of my career.”
