Sneak Peek: Class of 2019 Summer Reading

Part of what makes Babson great is that students can get involved in so many different things. The opportunities are limitless, as I found out in October 2013, when I was asked to be a student representative on the committee that chooses incoming first-years’ summer reading selection.

During winter break I was fortunate to have the opportunity to take part in the Babson JMCFE Program in which we acted as consultants for a company in Switzerland. This program, similar to the MCFE program at…
