The new application is live (and an updated essay too)!

For those of you applying for a program in spring, summer, or fall of 2018, our application is live!  We released a new application on Monday as well as a new essay topic.

For those of you applying to our working professional’s programs for Fall 2018, don’t worry. The application may look a little different (some questions removed, some added); most notably, we only require one essay. If you already started your application, run with it. If you already wrote your essay (or both), submit them and ignore the new essay question. Don’t worry, it’s a time of transition, and we know we will see some old essay topics and some new ones.

If you already started an application and experience any difficulty, log out and log back in.  Some new required fields were added and other questions were removed. It’s best to review the application checklist on the Babson Bridge homepage to see if you are missing any of the required questions. If you experience any trouble after these steps, contact our office, and we will be happy to help (

The new essay topic is….
When reviewing applications for new members of our community, Babson College looks for students who embody a variety of characteristics. From the list below, choose one that resonates, most with you and describe a past experience where you embodied this characteristic. (400 words or less)

–          Global Perspective
–          Comfort with Ambiguity
–          Social Impact
–          Creative Action/Problem Solving
–          Collaborative Spirit

For the essay, remember that we want to get to know you better.  Tell us about an experience that you are proud of, go into detail, but be concise as it should only be 400 words.

We look forward to reading your applications!
