Exciting Opportunities for Babson’s Incoming Graduate Students!
My colleague Johanna Beers, who recruits primarily for our Two-Year MBA program, shared the following thoughts as she prepares to welcome the incoming classes at Babson!
May is a time of transition for every college. Even as we celebrated the achievements of the Class of 2018 last Saturday, including two graduates who were named to Poets & Quants’ list of ‘Best and Brightest MBAs, we are now welcoming new students this summer & fall . The Babson community is always shifting and growing! As we look forward, we wanted to share with you some of the exciting opportunities of which our new classes will be a part in the year to come:
- Celebrating Babson College’s Centennial – 2019 marks Babson’s 100 years of changing how the world does business and you will be here to celebrate with us! Even as our education has adapted with the times, our purpose has remained consistent – to create economic and social value everywhere.
- Women in Technology Board – Women consistently are underrepresented in technology fields and Babson wants to be a leader in changing this fact. As such, we “aim to empower Babson women in navigating the technology industry” by providing additional resources and mentoring.
- Investment in Family Business – Babson recognizes the role that families play in driving entrepreneurial behavior and as such, has launched the Institute for Family Entrepreneurship. Its first Executive Director, Lauri Union, will be leading the Institute’s growth and strategy.
- Learning from outstanding professors – Babson faculty are actively engaged in academic and business innovations and are thought leaders who shape understanding of Entrepreneurship of All Kinds globally. One example of this is Professor Heidi Neck whose entrepreneurship textbook was named Breakthrough Book of 2017.
This is just a very small taste of all the opportunities students, faculty, and staff enjoy as part of Babson. We look forward to seeing how our new students contribute in shaping Babson’s next 100 years.
