Babson's curriculum is designed to inspire students and executives with a passion for creating economic value while incorporating concerns for people and planet. With over 25 concentrations and majors, the academic program places an emphasis on hands-on experiential as well as classroom learning.
At Babson, we believe that entrepreneurship is applicable—and crucial—in organizations of all types and sizes, in established businesses as well as new ventures. Today, teams, divisions, and whole enterprises are striving to be more entrepreneurial. Furthermore, entrepreneurial thought and action are happening at all levels of an organization, where collaboration complements top-down leadership.
Babson College was the first to understand that thinking and acting entrepreneurially is more than just an inclination. Rather, it can be taught. And we do it better than anyone. Babson invented the methodology for entrepreneurship education nearly half a century ago; today, Entrepreneurial Thought and Action is still at the center of the Babson experience. In our collaborative community, through a blend of innovative, integrated curricular and co-curricular programs, our students experience the world as it is. Gaining both functional business and foundational liberal arts knowledge, they are shaped into leaders who will reshape the world.
With an emphasis on Social, Environmental, Economic Responsibility, and Sustainability (SEERS) embedded into the experience, our students understand that economic and social value creation are not mutually exclusive, but instead integral to each other. The fundamental business skills and entrepreneurial mindset they cultivate at Babson equips them to make a difference here on campus and around the world.
As a learning/living laboratory, we evolve and renew the Babson experience on a continuous basis. Yes, despite being ranked #1 for entrepreneurship an unprecedented 20 years in a row by U.S. News & World Report, Babson College continues to look forward, to evolve our methods, to anticipate the challenges and opportunities our students will face when they graduate. The world changes too quickly for us to complacently reiterate yesterdays knowledge that may no longer be relevant tomorrow.
