Fall 2021 Undergraduate Recruiting is OPEN at Babson – Virtual AND In Person Options

RE-CONNECT.
.
This is our theme for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year. Though the pandemic is still with us, we look towards the future and are excited to be returning to campus to welcome back our students and extended Babson community, including all of you! Together we have learned a great deal over the last 17+ months and we thank you for your continued support and partnership with Babson College. Babson is requiring all students to be vaccinated upon return to campus this fall with the mindset that a vaccinated community will enable us to safely return to enjoying the things we once took for granted.
.
Our collected experiences this past academic year had us all trying things differently – a hallmark of entrepreneurship. Having pivoted, persevered, and recalculated, we came together to create new and meaningful ways to connect and achieve success! To that end, our below line up of fall recruiting events and corporate sponsor program will offer a mix of both in-person and virtual opportunities. We invite you to join us in ways that work best for your organization to engage, brand, and connect with Babson undergraduate talent.
.
We are excited to embark on yet another “new next” and look forward to the ride with our valued partners. Thank you and see you this fall! Please reach to Undergrad CCD if you have any questions.
