Introduction

A new kind of business school

Our mission

We strive to be the most relevant business school in the world.

By using our global reach and always being creative, entrepreneurial, and on the cutting edge, our aim is to have a positive impact on individuals and organizations by transforming their management practices. In so doing, we hope to be the business school of choice for existing and aspiring leaders. We will contribute to sustainable growth, helping leaders to integrate commercial success and societal well-being.

Go beyond business

At Hult, we believe a business school should give you so much more than a degree. Our students graduate with a global network in place, the practical skills to make an impact from day one, a future mindset needed to thrive in a time of change, and lifelong learning opportunities so that they can stay on the cutting edge long past graduation.

Rankings

Accreditations and rankings

Hult is recognized by business education’s three most prestigious international accrediting bodies: The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International), Association of MBAs (AMBA), and EQUIS (The European Quality Improvement System). We are the first and only business school in the U.S. to achieve this triple accreditation, which is held by just one percent of business schools worldwide.

History

History

Our school’s history is woven of two stories, one beginning in 1964 in Boston Massachusetts, the other in 1959 in a place just outside of London. In 2015, Hult International Business School and Ashridge Business School operationally merged to form one of the world’s most unique business schools.

Research

Our strength lies in translating groundbreaking thinking into the practices that underpin our programs, to help organizations perform at the highest level and stay ahead of the game.

Our research falls into two themes, which reflect our existing research progress and also harness the school’s differentiating advantage as a uniquely international institution, with students and faculty hailing from and teaching in different parts of the globe as a single community.

Creating Disruption highlights the strategies that anticipate, shape, and react to changes in international markets. What local or global events, technology, or scenarios enable or trigger a new strategy? How are strategies constructed, communicated, and implemented? How well do specific strategies perform, especially in multinational environments? How can strategies that are successful in one market be leveraged in another market that might be half way around the globe?

Transforming Behavior relates to the continuous improvement of organizational and personal leadership practices. This involves rigorous data-driven assessment of the interventions and programs that generate the greatest long-term improvement in the behavior of individuals, teams, and organizations in business settings globally.
