Overview

Babson College F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business

At Babson's F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business, the mindset is that entrepreneurship is applicable - and crucial - in organizations of all types and sizes, in established businesses as well as new ventures. Babson is the only business school that has developed and advanced an innovative teaching method, Entrepreneurial Thought and Action®. Unlike most business schools that teach entrepreneurship as a discrete, siloed subject, Babson incorporates Entrepreneurial Thought and Action across all disciplines. In fact, Babson's MBA program has been ranked number one in the country for entrepreneurship for 24 consecutive years by U.S. News & World Report.

Building off the classroom curriculum are the Signature Learning Experiences (SLEs). These experiences reinforce and expand classroom learning through hands-on activities that require graduate students to put theories into practice. To supplement, there is a wide array of elective courses for deeper experiential and field-based learning, including intensive elective tracks. Students can customize their portfolio of electives to meet their career aspirations.
