Welcome to Insights@Questrom

Welcome to Insights@Questrom, a new digital hub for relevant, thought-provoking ideas on emerging business topics by Boston University Questrom School of Business. This platform will feature valuable insights for business practice in the form of videos, articles, webinars, and opinion pieces surrounding Questrom's latest research and initiatives as well as expertise from Questrom faculty, administrators, students, and alumni.

Through Insights@Questrom, we capture and collect ideas in a comprehensive, accessible format that highlights the extraordinary variety of thought at Questrom and at Boston University.

This hub is divided into two categories – business challenges and business functions. Business challenges include business policy & markets, digital business, diversity, equity & inclusion, entrepreneurship & innovation, future of work, health & healthcare, risk, and social impact. Business functions include corporate strategy, finance & accounting, leadership & management, marketing, operations, innovation, and technology.

Visitors can also access exclusive Insights@Questrom Live events and videos featuring prominent business leaders, Questrom alumni, and current faculty. Featured guests will share how they have navigated their industries, optimized business performance, and adapted to change. Faculty will share key take-aways from their research and apply their expertise to the current business landscape, on topics as varied as cryptocurrency, drug pricing, antitrust, and consumers’ acceptance of artificial intelligence in healthcare.
