To the Sawyer Business School community:


Greetings from Boston. Our second semester is off to a fantastic start. One exciting piece of news is the partnership with the Boston Celtics that we announced in early February. This collaboration with the 17-time NBA Champions anchors our newly launched interdisciplinary Sports Management program. Available to students in the fall of 2023, the new program is the only one of its kind offered in a Boston-based AACSB-accredited business school.


In this newsletter you'll also learn about immersive learning opportunities with our new X-Lab, an on-campus facility that gives students and faculty innovative tools to understand customer behavior. There's business with purpose, personified by a group of our MBA students who won a $50,000 sustainability competition. We had a huge jump in U.S. News & World Report rankings. And finally there's the integrated expertise that comes from our stellar faculty.


Although it’s only early March, we’ll soon be gathering for Commencement on Sunday, May 21. In the meantime, I wish you all the best.

We launched a multi-year partnership with the Boston Celtics as part of our new Sports Management program.

In the latest U.S. News & World Report rankings, our online MBA jumped 73 spots in one year.

A group of our MBA students beat more than 60 other teams to win a $50,000 sustainability competition.

We opened a first-of-its-kind teaching and research laboratory that uses cutting-edge eye-tracking technology.

Integrated Expertise
