Overview

Babson College Overview

Babson College provides a different kind of education -- a dynamic living and learning experience where future leaders are immersed in business studies while engaging in Entrepreneurial Thought and Action. Babson shapes the leaders that the world needs most: those who can envision and navigate change, understand global perspectives, and motivate teams in a common purpose to create economic and social value. The students, faculty, and staff work together to address real-world problems and make a difference in the world.

Babson College Accreditations and Ranking

An independent, coeducational institution, Babson is accredited by AACSB International (the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, and the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS). Babson takes pride in its focus on Entrepreneurial Thought and Action; the college was recently ranked number one in entrepreneurship by the "U.S. News and World Report" 2013 list of Best Colleges in America, which gives Babson that spot for the 17th consecutive time.

Babson College Academics

As a business school where half of the classes are in liberal arts, Babson emphasizes creativity, imagination, and risk-taking as essential to learning the foundation of business. Through innovative learning concepts such as integrated curricula, cross-functional team teaching, and practical experience through field-based learning, Babson College students develop varied skills and are better able to adapt to an ever-changing business environment.

Because of Babson's close-knit community, students are able to form close relationships with the faculty. With over 85 percent of the full-time faculty holding a doctoral degree, these accomplished entrepreneurs, executives, scholars, authors, researchers, and artists bring an intellectual diversity and real-world experience that adds depth to Babson's educational programs. Most importantly, faculty members teach 100 percent of the courses. There are no teaching assistants.

At Babson College, students receive a world-class education that is innovative and creative, yet practical. They study business, learn about leadership, and undertake a transformative life experience preparing them to create their own authentic, powerful brand of success. Babson College students make friends, find mentors, and develop long-lasting relationships within a community that will grow and thrive long after graduation.

Babson College Undergraduate Curriculum

The Babson College curriculum breaks down the artificial barriers between disciplines by emphasizing an integrated, holistic approach to learning. The curriculum integrates core competencies, key business disciplines, and the liberal arts into a comprehensive program that provides deep functional knowledge and teaches an entrepreneurial mindset. Babson's core competencies include rhetoric, quantitative analysis, entrepreneurial and creative thinking, global and multicultural perspectives, ethics and social responsibility, leadership and teamwork, and critical and integrative thinking.

These learning outcomes are introduced and reinforced as students progress through the undergraduate curriculum. The first-year curriculum lays the groundwork and allows students to discover opportunities, raising students' abilities to formulate, explore, and reflect critically. In the second year, students explore their skills through case studies and real-world experience. Students then use the third and fourth year to focus their experience through coursework they are passionate about, internships, and education abroad.

Babson College Supplemental Courses and Studies

In addition to the variety of language and liberal arts courses available, Babson students can take a course each semester at one of the other area colleges. Babson is part of a three-college collaboration with Wellesley College and Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering, in order to build on the geographic proximity and complementary educational strengths among the three nationally recognized, leading colleges.

Babson College Study Abroad

Babson's vibrant education abroad program enables students to spend school breaks, one semester, or an entire year overseas at a college or university. Currently, ninety-three programs are offered in more than thirty five countries, and full academic credit is given for approved management and liberal arts courses. The Glavin Office of Multicultural and International Education also provides opportunity for students to create their own international experience with administrative approval.

Babson College Student Life

Babson is a residential college and is a 24-hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week living-learning community alive with intellectual, cultural, athletic, and social activities. Approximately 85 percent of the undergraduate student body lives on campus in the residence halls for all four years at Babson. Housing options include themed special-interest housing, such as multicultural, green-focused, and entrepreneurial; coed residence halls; fraternity and sorority housing; and healthy living housing.

Babson College is an NCAA Division III school, and most of the college's intercollegiate teams compete in the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC). There are twenty-two men's and women's varsity sports teams, with additional club sports, intramural sports, and recreational activities available to all students.

The Webster Center features an indoor, 200-meter, six-lane track; a field house; a gymnasium with three basketball courts; a racquetball court; a 25-yard, six-lane pool with 1- and 3-meter diving boards; a fitness center; squash courts; and a dance/aerobics studio.
