Hult International Business School (also known as Hult Business School or Hult) is a private business school with campuses in Cambridge, London, San Francisco, Dubai, New York City, and Shanghai. Hult, named for the school’s benefactor Bertil Hult, is the successor of an American institution, the Arthur D. Little School of Management, founded in 1964 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and of a British institution, the Ashridge Business School, founded in 1959 in Ashridge, England.
Hult offers undergraduate, master’s, and MBA degree programs, as well as executive education through Ashridge Executive Education, housed on the Ashridge Estate campus. The school is patron to the Hult Prize, the world’s largest student competition for social good, which is held in collaboration with the United Nations Foundation and former U.S President Bill Clinton
Hult Ashridge Executive Education program, housed in Ashridge House, is ranked in the UK’s top 10 programs. Hult’s San Francisco campus is located in the North Beach neighborhood, by Telegraph Hill.
In 2002, Swedish billionaire Bertil Hult purchased the Arthur D. Little School of Management, which resulted in the school’s reorganization and reestablishment as Hult International Business School in 2003. Under its restructuring, Hult established a new curriculum oriented on international business, which led to the establishment of Hult’s global campuses in Dubai (2008), San Francisco (2010), Shanghai (2011), and New York (2014).
In 2007, Hult acquired Huron University in London, a private American university located in London’s Bloomsbury neighborhood, which subsequently was reestablished as Hult International Business School’s London campus.
In 2014, Hult International Business School acquired and merged with Ashridge Business School, creating one of the largest business schools in the world. After 2015, the two schools began operating as a singular entity, with the establishment of Ashridge Executive Education as Hult’s executive program.
Hult opened its undergraduate campus in London, near the City of London financial centre, in 2014
The Economist Intelligence Unit, supported by Hult International Business School, launched the Business Professor of the Year Award in 2012
