Experience The Babson Bridge


(Fall scenes on the Babson campus, including Olin Hall-top right.)

Are you having a busy fall? Everything at Babson is moving and changing in really great ways. New England has had a change of season. In autumn when the sun shines, our campus is a magical place!

All our students from all our graduate programs are here and busy. Mid-terms are happening for the Two Years, the One Years are super happy that they are in Electives, the Evening students have settled into their new curriculum, and the Fast Track students just began their program three weeks ago!

Here in Grad Admissions, we’ve have a few firsts as well. My first First is our new Graduate Assistants team for this academic year. They are your personal bridge to the Babson experience—they were in the same place you are not long ago and have landed where they wanted to be, the #1 school for Entrepreneurship.

Let me introduce them and, in Director’s blog style, introduce them through some revealing facts—their definition of E-ship, their favorite pastime, and their favorite Babson class (to date.) Our GA’s can answers your questions and connect you with classmates in all programs. Please feel free to contact Grad Admissions so we can connect you with them.

The second First is the launch, TODAY, of The Babson Bridge, the portal to the Babson MBA experience for prospective Babson students. If you have already introduced yourself to us or started or submitted an application, you have received an email with your new log-in credentials. If you have just been lounging on our web pages or sidling up to my team at recruitment events to whisper a few pressing questions, now is the time to Introduce Yourself, create your profile, and start walking The Bridge. On it, you will find the latest event information, Real People/Real Stories, this blog, statistics about job placements, contacts information, tabs to bring you right to your application, and much more.

Let me know what you think about your experience on The Bridge. We’re Babson, so we’ll take action.

Good luck. Think big.
