Why study at Hult?
Hult is a good choice for students, because
most Hult faculty members have business
leadership experience and genuinely care
for the future. Anyone looking for a school
that embodies such values and offers great
international exposure should put Hult at the
top of their list. The international campuses
provide incomparable opportunities for
students to learn in different environments
while retaining the same quality of learning,
allowing them to gain localized business
knowledge of multiple regions in addition
to learning the standard material. Also, the
one-year MBA saves money and time, and
in today’s fast-paced world, the ability to be
able to return quickly to a full-time earning
position, and often to a much better paid job,
What makes Hult unique?
Unlike most schools, the pedagogical
approach that Hult faculty take to business
education is very practical; most of us have
business or government experience that we
draw from. Learning from books you can do at
home—learning from people who have done
what they teach is an entirely different thing.
