As a partner of Granite Point Capital, Scott Bushley provides counsel to the hedge fund’s managing partner on all operational matters, including human resources, IT, and office infrastructure. In addition to more than 20 years of relevant experience to support his efforts in this regard, Scott Bushley holds an MBA from Boston College’s Carroll School of Management (CSOM).

In March, U.S. News & World Report released its Best Graduate Schools list, where CSOM’s part-time and full-time MBA programs ranked 28th and 43rd, respectively. It was the second consecutive year that CSOM’s part-time program was ranked among the top 30, while its full-time program jumped five spots from last year’s rankings. Moreover, CSOM’s MBA programs in finance and marketing ranked 23rd and 25th in the nation, respectively, while its MBA program in accounting jumped four spots to No. 31.

A total of 475 schools offering MBA programs were surveyed. Rankings were based on a methodology involving factors such as job placement rates, starting salaries, average undergraduate GPAs, and peer assessments.

CSOM’s part-time MBA program, in particular, has performed well in numerous surveys. Just two years ago, U.S. News & World Report ranked it as the 46th best part-time program in the country. Its ascent can be attributed to its 2016 strategic plan, which emphasized making graduate programs at Boston College more competitive with a substantial curricular overhaul.
