It might depend on the specific concentration within the communications field. For example, as a graduate of BU's advertising program I can say that one of its greatest advantages is the proximity/accessibility of several well-known ad agencies in the city. In fact, many of the program's professors/academic resources are former ad execs from Arnold, Hill Holliday, etc. That being said, I'm not sure about the other programs (journalism, PR, film, mass comm). What is your brother interested in, specifically?
