From Babson College

The word that typically comes up when people mention Babson is “entrepreneurship.” That’s because the Babson alumni network includes many prominent entrepreneurs, including Jamie Siminoff, the inventor of Ring video doorbells, and Arthur Blank, the co-founder of Home Depot. Plus, every first-year student at Babson creates and runs a business through our renowned Foundations of Management and Entrepreneurship course.

Entrepreneurship at Babson means many things. You don’t need to start a business to be entrepreneurial—here, hands-on learning experiences help you develop the problem-solving skills to be successful in any organization. In our close-knit community just outside of Boston, students from diverse backgrounds are busy finding new ways to make a positive social and economic impact on the world. If you’re excited to discover new ways of thinking and doing, we encourage you to learn more.

    Such an inspiring school! While it is considered a business school, so many different people with varying backgrounds combine their personal interests with their passion for business to create unique careers and opportunities for themselves and others. The school often promotes diversity and inclusion, but they could work a little harder on the inclusion portion!

    Absolutely amazing! Good Professors that have tons of business experience. The alumni association is supportive. We recently held our centennial and that is changing up the campus a lot in a better positive way. We are building a new recreational center, library, and park. The location is priceless if you love the suburban vibe. We are right across the Wellesley Country Club. The food is dramatically improving.
    Babson College has amazing professor and motivated students. The courses are difficult but manageable. Babson emphasizes entrepreneurial mindset in almost all of its classes and even clubs and organizations. The dining hall on campus is very average, but not terrible. The surrounding Wellesley area is very nice and surburban. Boston is about 30 mins away.
