Amherst

The Isenberg School of Management at UMass Amherst provides an ideal collaborative environment for students. The recent construction of the Business Innovation Hub has nearly doubled the size of the school, creating spaces for experiential learning, executive-in-residence programs, and networking events. New technology-enabled classrooms support distance learning and connections with business partners in Boston and beyond, and multiple analytics labs provide hands-on learning opportunities.

International and domestic students are eligible to take courses in Amherst. Start in the summer, fall, or spring. Start your degree online in the summer and join a cohort and study on campus in the fall.

Newton

UMass Amherst’s Mount Ida Campus in Newton offers students an intimate campus experience just 10 miles outside of downtown Boston. In addition to all the services UMass Amherst offers—including an onsite fitness center, award-winning dining services and the Chase Career Center—there is also the option to apply for on-campus housing. Free parking and free transportation to the MBTA green line provide easy access to Boston.

The proximity to Boston companies in such industries as life sciences, sports tech and business consulting makes professional development opportunities through the Isenberg network and internships easily accessible. If you start your degree online in the summer, you can choose to join a cohort and study on campus in the fall.
