We quantify the ability of B-Factories to observe supersymmetric contributions to the rare decays B -> X_s \gamma and B -> X_s l+ l-. A global fit to the Wilson coefficients which contribute to these decays is performed from Monte Carlo generated data on B(B -> X_s \gamma) and the kinematic distributions associated with the final state lepton pair in B -> X_s l+ l-. This fit is then compared to supersymmetric predictions. Evaluation of the Wilson coefficients is carried out with several

We find that the B-Factories will be able to probe regions of the SUSY parameter space not accessible to LEPII, the Tevatron, and perhaps the LHC. We also employ the recent NLO calculation of the matrix elements for B -> X_s \gamma and find the bound mH+ > 300 GeV in two-Higgs-doublet models using present data.
