“No longer are we telling black male youth that the only path to success is through hyper-aggressive career and interest paths,” says Jennifer Pierre, a Masters in Management in Entrepreneurial Leadership (MSM) candidate here at Babson. Stemming from her work with minority youth, Jennifer saw a need for young boys to be encouraged in whatever…

Summer Friday mornings in Olin are definitely not quiet!

I often get asked if I have summer off or people just assume I do. On the contrary, summer is a very busy time for the Graduate Admissions team – we just welcomed the One-Year MBA class of 2016 a few weeks ago. They are an impressive group of students and they are busy! This…

Round 1 deadline – come play at Babson!

No, this is not an error. I know I am addressing mostly prospective MBA and Masters candidates on this blog but I really am talking about play – and the practice of play, no less.

What is a deferral?

Greetings from Babson, where we recently celebrated not that we are the #1 school for entrepreneurship, but that we are the ONLY school for e-ship.  I’ll save the picture for the end of my post, but let me say that Olin Hall witnessed an outpouring of school spirit, Babson green t-shirts, the Babson Beaver mascot,…

Are you a gambler or an entrepreneur?

Most people quickly and easily associate entrepreneurship with taking risk. During my undergrad days, any daring student who tried to make a quick buck to fuel those teenage impulses, was considered entrepreneurial.
