We Seek Leaders Who Will Thrive in Technology-Driven Enterprises

Admission to the WPI School of Business is competitive.  In September, we enrolled approximately 92 students across all of our graduate degree programs. Our classes are purposefully kept small to maximize classroom learning and interaction among faculty and students. 

We look for candidates who, based on their academic and professional records, have a high likelihood of success in a challenging, technology-focused business program. Although WPI generally attracts candidates with backgrounds in engineering, science, and information technology, our students are also marketers, entrepreneurs, researchers, financial managers, and medical practitioners. What they all have in common is an appreciation for a business education that prepares them to thrive in technology-driven enterprises. Our student body is comprised of bright, hardworking, committed individuals from across the globe and industry spectrum. If this sounds like you, we encourage you to apply.  Apply now.
