Babson Contributes To A Vibrant Downtown Boston Environment

Babson’s new Babson Boston High Street campus is among the factors contributing to the vibrancy of Downtown Boston, according to Babson Chief Administrative Officer Katherine Craven.

She was among the speakers at the recent Bisnow Future of Downtown Boston event at the Boston Harbor Hotel.

According to Bisnow, Craven said that “…Babson College’s expansion to Downtown, moving to a more modern and accessible location, is helping the school attract graduate students where they work, which is increasingly Downtown. The new location also offers alumni a convenient and innovative space for networking, co-working and more. Nearly half of all Babson alumni – about 16,000 graduates – live or work in greater Boston, and the eight largest employers of Babson graduates are Boston-based companies. A Downtown location is essential to Babson being part of the fabric of the city….”

Other speakers included Lawrence DiCara, Partner, Nixon Peabody; Doug Manz, Partner & Director of Development, The HYM Investment Group; Rosemarie Sansone, President, Downtown Boston Business Improvement District; Kishore Varanasi, Principal & Director of Urban Design, CBT Architects; Tim Kirwan, Principal, HCNE, and David Fleming, Principal, PACE Communications Group.

Babson Boston provides the opportunity for students, alumni, corporate and non-profit partners to learn, gather, collaborate and innovate through graduate level courses, special programming and networking events.

Located at 100 High Street, the classroom and convening spaces are in-city complements to the main residential Babson campus in Wellesley, extending the ways in which our community can both strengthen and leverage the entrepreneurial ecosystem that is flourishing in the city of Boston.
