Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Robert A. Foisie School of Business

As the business school of a premier technological university, the Robert A. Foisie School of Business at Worcester Polytechnic Institute integrates science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) into the business curriculum. Our graduates are prepared to lead at the intersection of technology and business, applying entrepreneurial thinking and harnessing the power of technology and teamwork to solve complex human problems. Consistent with WPI's motto of theory and practice, a project-based approach to learning and doing pervades the WPI Foisie School's undergraduate and graduate programs. Our students take advantage of the university's strong relationships with technology-intensive organizations around the world and a network of more than 40 global project centers. A recent independent study of more than 2,500 WPI alumni across a span of 38 years has confirmed that there are lifelong professional and personal benefits from experiential, hands-on learning through project work. Interdisciplinary research in such areas as healthcare, manufacturing, sustainability, and user experience brings business faculty together with engineers and scientists from WPI and our partners, including neighboring University of Massachusetts Medical School. Our part-time MBA program blends online and on-campus experiences, providing students with flexibility, work-life balance and face-to-face networking with peers and connections with faculty.. A study by on "Colleges Worth Your Investment" ranked WPI as one of the top 20 schools in the nation when comparing the cost of attendance with the compensation of graduates.
