​Our Curriculum

The Babson curriculum is designed to inspire students and executives who have a passion for creating economic value while incorporating concerns for people and planet. Our vision began as a bold experiment that placed Entrepreneurial Thought and Action® at the core of the curriculum. Today, the world looks to Babson’s curriculum as the benchmark for an entrepreneurial course of study where students learn to be agile thinkers who create and capitalize on opportunities to make a difference.

What makes us different

  • Integrated learning: Our faculty partner across disciplines to help students examine opportunities from multiple angles.
