Babson Connect – New York Flexing its Muscles: Technology’s Impact on the Fitness Industry – January 7, 2016

2015 Boston Connect PhotoThe Graduate Center for Career Development is excited to invite current graduate students and alumni to the 5th annual New York Babson Connect on January 7th, 2016 at the D & D Building.

Join us as we explore the intersections of fitness and technology. As health and wellness take center stage in our lives, technology strives to make fitness more interactive and engaging. Software engineers are building the systems and marketers are creating glitzy campaigns to make wearables and apps attractive, fun, and easy-to-use to motivate us in our quest to be fit.

There is a $10 cost for current Babson students and really hope that you can join us. If you are planning to head to New York City after graduation or are going home for the summer, this is a great way to build your local network, learn about career paths, and ask questions!
