Babson College


At Babson’s F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business, we develop global leaders with a strong business foundation as well as an entrepreneurial mindset. Our students learn how to recognize opportunities and create value in a competitive, global marketplace. Our graduates launch startups or lead global enterprises, driving the inspiration to develop new products, processes and markets.

Entrepreneurship is a unique way of thinking and acting that permeates every aspect of how we approach management education, from finance and accounting to marketing and strategic planning. It’s about using proven creative techniques to unearth new business opportunities. It’s about analyzing the costs, risks, and benefits of promising ideas. And, it’s about realization - how to marshal resources to grow ideas from infancy to maturity, in a start-up or a global corporation.

Babson’s MBA programs feature an integrated, cross-disciplinary approach to business education in a team-based learning environment, preparing our graduates to address real business problems. Babson students benefit from experiential learning opportunities, where students can work as consultants or complete internships in the US or abroad. We offer four innovative MBA programs to meet the needs of a broad range of students.

The One-Year MBA offers the opportunity to earn an MBA in 12 months to those students with an academic background in business. Babson’s Two-Year MBA program features a real-world consulting project as well as international experience. Our part-time Evening MBA allows students to earn their MBA at their own pace, varying their course load as needed. The innovative Fast Track MBA, offered on the East and West Coasts, combines periodic classroom sessions with distance learning, allowing busy professionals the ability to earn an MBA in two years without leaving the workplace.
