Fall 2021 Undergraduate Recruiting is OPEN at Babson (Updated as of 8/18/21)
IMPORTANT UPDATE AS OF AUGUST 18, 2021:
Given the evolving Covid-19 Delta variant we have had to re-evaluate our policies to ensure that the safety of our community and external partners remains our top priority. Babson College has adjusted its Fall 2021 return to campus plan and has implemented masking guidelines and mandatory testing for its community. With these new updates, we have had to make the difficult decision to transition all previously scheduled in-person programs (Business Career Fair and On-Campus Interviews) to virtual. Fortunately, we have the technology and capabilities to continue to provide our employers and students opportunities to connect, network, and participate in recruiting events/programs. Similar to the 2020-2021 academic year, we have reduced the fees of our Career Fair to reflect this change.
Though this is not the Fall recruiting season we envisioned, we are confident that this will be another successful recruiting season for all and we thank you for your continued support and participation.
