Suffolk University is situated in the heart of downtown Boston. It is steps away from the Massachusetts State House, the Financial District, and the Boston Common, as well as major shopping centers, museums, theaters, sports venues, and restaurants.

Student life

Whether on-site attending internships near our downtown campus, consulting real clients on projects, or on weeklong local and international travel seminars, students are exposed to real-world experiences that deepen their understanding of practical business. Outside of required experience, students often apply to startup consulting clinics, participate in local and national case competitions, and attend local service days.

 

The Graduate Student Services team supports students every step of the way with application advising, financial aid counseling, international student resources, and other resources such as the Center for Career Equity, Development & Success or the Center for Learning and Academic Success. We also offer value-added professional development workshops to bolster students’ professional skillsets while studying at Suffolk.

Massachusetts is the #2 Most Innovative State as ranked by Bloomberg’s 2021 Innovation Index, and Boston is at the center of it all. Our downtown campus is just steps away from highly placed opportunities in the Financial District, the State House, the world’s most advanced health and biotech centers, and an Innovation District with the highest per-capita rate of startup investment in the United States.
