Professional U

Professional U at BU connects students with alumni, employers, and opportunities integrating the academic experience with professional experience in “real world” settings. Through the exploration of professional development topics and experiential learning, students build skills and confidence which prepare them for personal and professional success upon graduation.

Integral to the student experience is the Professional U four year plan, making BU distinctive in achieving our mission of preparing students for personal and professional success in an increasingly complex global environment.
