Get to know Babson BRIC

BRIC Study Abroad Program logo

The BRIC countries, covering over 25% of the world’s land and accounting for more than 40% of the world’s population, are significant driving forces in today’s global marketplace.  Babson BRIC: The Cornerstone of the New Global Economy is a semester-long, globally comparative and academically rigorous study abroad experience.

Babson students travel together to three unique sites (St. Petersburg, Russia; Shanghai, China; New Delhi, India) taking courses designed and facilitated by Babson faculty.  Students will combine onsite coursework, meetings with business and academic leaders, and government officials to experience the changing global business landscape.

The BRIC program starts on Babson campus in August for an intensive pre-departure program. The group then continues to China, Russia and India for about a month each. One administrator, the On-Site Coordinator, will travel with the group for the entire semester. Each of the faculty will meet the group for the administration of their course only for 2-4 weeks in their related country.
