Students Say

A private business school in Massachusetts, Babson College provides a "culture of entrepreneurship" and "fosters collaboration through group work and unconventional assignments." "We live and breathe business," says one business administration major, of the tight-knit, "diverse" group of undergraduate and graduate students on campus. Babson seeks to create an environment of "entrepreneurship among a community of goal-driven and disciplined students," and integral to this vision is the mandatory course Foundations of Management and Entrepreneurship. Through this course first-year Babson "students get to work in small teams to start and run an actual business of their choosing, [and there] is always a friendly competition between all of the companies to make the most profit and unit sales." Students say their "professors are passionate about the course material and bring their real-life experience into the classroom. The academics are rigorous, but worthwhile." With its focus on "experiential" and hands-on learning from day one, Babson employs professors who are "often industry experts with established careers." Students explain that their instructor's "experience leads to broader discussions of why material is important, and they open up their networks to students as we look for internships and jobs." As a "small college, attendance and participation are extremely important," and "professors want to make connections with their students . . . It is not uncommon to hear about professors recommending or referring students to internships and full-time positions with their extensive networks."

Students Say

There’s no question that a degree from Babson helps lead to professional success. As one highly content junior explains, “Because of the professors’ connections as well as school reputation in the business world, job and internship opportunities are abundant.” In fact, “99 percent of Babson students either have a job or are pursuing higher education six months after graduation...in this economy/job market that’s fantastic!” Certainly, the Career Development Office helps to fuel this success. The office hosts many industry spotlights (for accounting, finance, etc.) and even has employers-in-residence! Students can hobnob with representatives from Ernst & Young and Fidelity Investments (just to name a few). Finally, given all the business acumen acquired at this school, it’s no surprise that the average starting salary of recent grads is $59,700 (according to PayScale.com).

Colleges that Create Futures

Hands-on Coursework

Students we surveyed all agree that Babson’s standing in entrepreneurship drew them to the school, a rep that is due, in part, to the internationally recognized yearlong immersion course “Foundations of Management and Entrepreneurship” (FME). The program attracts many students to the College, including alumnus Ross Beyeler, the founder of Growth Spark, who was “immediately hooked” on the idea of starting a business his first year. In the FME program, first-year students working in teams of ten are loaned $3,000 by the university to launch their own businesses under the tutelage of two dedicated faculty members. Students learn the ins and outs of entrepreneurship, marketing, accounting, organizational behavior, information systems, and operations, as well as the integrated role these functions have within a company.
The value of this award-winning course is clear. Dr. Candida Brush, chair of the Entrepreneurship Division at Babson, explains, “Because of this signature learning experience, our freshmen are ‘changed’ because they have entrepreneurial skills by the end of their second semester.” Students recognize this value as well. “I compare my education to what my peers are receiving at other schools, and feel very confident that I’m more than prepared to compete in the working world,” a business administration major confides.
This preparation has real effects on Babson students. Brittany Lo, who graduated in 2014 and founded Beautini by B.Lo, tells us, “I entered Babson wanting to have my own company, but then thought a corporate job in marketing would be safer to start with. However, since Babson provided me with so many opportunities to try new things like starting a business with the support of many valuable resources and people to help guide me, I was able to bypass my initial career move and go directly in the path I wanted to pursue. I had a full time job offer with L’Oréal but was able to turn it down and pursue my dream with my startup after receiving investment (some from the Babson community).”
Practical Experience

Babson’s commitment to real world experiences extends outside the classroom as well. First-years can start off with Babson’s Externship Program, which offers one- to five-day job-shadowing experiences that provide students with an opportunity to observe professionals on the job. While the program is not for academic credit, and students are not compensated, it does allow them to develop strong and valuable connections with alumni and business organizations.
Babson also offers Management Consulting Field Experience (MCFE), which connects Boston-area organizations with talented Babson students who work as consultants to address a current business challenge. Students work on projects for both profit and nonprofit organizations, and an award is granted to the most successful MCFE for a nonprofit organization. Students gain valuable experience while providing their local organization with creativity, insights, and results.
Skill-building happens at various centers and institutes on campus as well. At BabsonARTS, a space where the campus community enjoys films, lectures, and performances, students can build skills in teamwork, project management, visual literacy and public speaking through workshops, master classes, and student-run performances. Students who want to use their entrepreneurial chops to make a difference should check out Babson’s Social Innovation Lab where “new concepts in social innovation are prototyped, evaluated, and proved in real-world contexts.” And the Stephen D. Cutler Center for Investments and Finance trains future investment bankers by allowing select students to manage a portion of the Babson College endowment.
Alumni Network

Many of the students cite Babson’s strong alumni and recruiting networks and their excellent job prospects as the main reasons they chose to attend Babson. Graduates are in good company. Arthur Blank, co-founder of The Home Depot, Daniel Gerber, founder of Gerber Baby Foods, and Roger Enrico, former chairman of DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. are all counted among prominent Babson alumni, and more recent grads have founded or co-founded an impressive roster of businesses like NatureBox and Zumba Fitness. A student in business management boasts, “Ninety-nine percent of Babson students either have a job or are pursuing higher education six months after graduation. In this economy . . . that’s fantastic!”
Even once they are employed, Babson graduates remain committed to the school community. Speaking to us about his continued involvement with the school, Ross Beyeler, founder of Growth Spark, tells us, “I’m actually a mentor in the summer venture program. I’ve been doing that since I graduated, probably a year after they started the program. And I participated in the Coaching for Leadership and Teamwork program, where you go back and mentor a student. I have certainly done business with Babson students and professors. I’ve maintained a relationship with some of the professors. I go to reunion events, . . . [and] I’ve guest lectured for a few classes in the undergrad and MBA programs.” Beyeler has also hired several Babson graduates, which speaks to the strength of this alumni network. When asked about Babson graduates’ reputation in the real world, he says, “There is a get-it-done attitude that Babson students have that people really appreciate, especially in the startup world where there are often no clear answers. You have to work hard, explore a lot of different options, and be willing to take risks. At Babson, [those qualities] are just inherent in our DNA.”

Students Say

Babson students stress the diversity on campus. This varied population means that "a lot of diverse perspectives are brought about during discussions." At Babson, "wealth on campus is prevalent," and students describe each other as "business savvy, typically type-A over-achievers." But the atmosphere "is not overly competitive. It is collaborative and entrepreneurial" and "all of [the students] are aware that they have the power to shape the future." Even at a school where business is the name of the game, "everybody at Babson seems willing to help whenever they can whether it is emotional support or help with academics." Many "Babson students are already entrepreneurs and businesspeople, and are at school to learn and have access to the numerous resources provided." In short, "the average student at Babson is well read, wildly ambitious, and heavily involved in extracurricular organizations on campus."

Overview

From The School


Location

This 370-acre suburban campus is located in Wellesley, Massachusetts. This is the ideal charming New England town, a classic setting for a college environment. Just 14 miles outside of Boston, students here are sure to experience the best of both worlds: the quaintness of small town life bordering the cultural and social excitement of the Boston.

Campus Facilities & Equipment

Babson's contemporary facilities provide students with access to dynamic academic and social resources. Students frequent the Donald W. Reynolds Campus Center, the Richard W. Sorenson Family Visual Arts Center, the Richard W. Sorenson Center for the Arts, the Webster Athletic Center, the Glavin Family Chapel, and the Arthur M. Blank Center for Entrepreneurship. These centers offer students a state-of-the-art campus experience. Horn Library houses an extensive business collection of print, media, and computerized information resources. Students have campus-wide access to newspapers, journals, investment analyst reports, corporate records, directories, and international information. They also benefit from numerous electronic research and news services. The Stephen D. Cutler Center for Investments and Finance, exemplifies Babson College's innovative, real-world approach to business education and applied research. It is the hub for investment education programs, finance-related student organizations and a forum for thought leadership where industry practitioners, faculty and students collaborate, exchange ideas and learn from one another. Wireless access is available everywhere on campus. Every incoming Babson undergraduate student receives a leased laptop. After their sophomore year, Babson students return their laptops and receive brand new laptops, which are then returned at the end of their senior year. When students graduate, they have the option to purchase their current laptop at a very attractive price or a new laptop at Babson's discounted rate. Babson provides network accounts for student use complete with Internet access and a Babson Gmail account, including all Google Apps for Education.

Off-Campus Opportunities

Babson is a living/learning laboratory in which entrepreneurship is infused throughout our curricular and cocurricular offerings. This means that student life is not just what you can do outside the classroom, it’s how the 154 hours per week you’re not in the classroom can help to make you the leader you want to be. With our student-centered, action-learning model, the Babson experience is a seamless blend of theory and practice, reflection and group activities, leadership and fellowship, and the freedom to make your own way, according to your particular goals, interests, and tastes. Maybe you hadn’t thought that music and dance, sports and fitness, and clubs based on recreational interests or cultural backgrounds are part of the educational experience. But, being entrepreneurial means living entrepreneurially, and that’s life at Babson: fun, eclectic, and innovative.

Students Say

Chronically busy Babson students take advantage of the school's policy of not offering classes on Friday and explore "Boston quite often" when they're not participating in the myriad on-campus organizations and clubs. With "so many student organizations, meetings, and events," it's difficult to be bored at Babson, and the business-minded students are often at "work on their own start-ups" or taking an Uber into nearby Wellesley "to blow off some steam." Greek life and sports—both intramural and intercollegiate—play key roles on campus. "The small class sizes make it very easy to make friends and establish new relationships," students explain, and "days without meetings for clubs and organizations are rare." Juggling multiple obligations isn't just a matter of clubs either: "Many students run their own businesses and manage that with school work and social lives."

Sustainability

One of the first things you notice when strolling Babson College’s tree-filled campus is a gigantic 28-foot-wide sculpture of planet Earth. The Babson Globe—for some years the largest rotating globe on the planet—is a visual indication of Babson’s commitment to sustainability and the environment. A signatory of the ACUPCC, Babson considers sustainability not only desirable but an obligation. Seventy-five percent of the college’s 350-acre campus is maintained organically. In 2010, Babson established its Sustainability Office with help from GreenerU, Inc., an organization that focuses on innovative sustainability services for higher education. That year also saw Babson become a STARS® Charter Participant. After a year-long review, it received STARs' Silver rating in 2011. Park Manor West, the newest residence hall on campus, has been built to LEED Silver standards, Babson’s minimum for new construction. Babson’s cafeterias focus on green foods, serving delicious items grown sustainably on local farms and orchards. When students need a caffeinated study boost, they can purchase fair trade coffee on campus. As a business school, Babson College’s green initiatives often focus on pairing sustainability and careers, a growing part of the economy. In spring 2012, the career center kicked off a focus on sustainability. Students can apply to be interns at the Sustainability Office for a hands-on experience. In 2013, a composting pilot was launched, and it has since been expanded to all dining locations on campus.
