Stephen D. Cutler Center for Investments and Finance

Thought Leadership, Education, Mentoring


Message from the Managing Director

Founded in March 2000, the award-winning Stephen D. Cutler Center for Investments and Finance is part of the highly-regarded Finance Division (pdf) at Babson College.

If the recent global financial crisis has taught us anything, it is the importance of understanding how global capital markets operate on both a macro and micro level, and just how interconnected Wall Street and Main Street really are. In addition, as hundreds of millions of people globally emerge from poverty to middle class status, and as defined benefit plans (traditional pensions) give way to defined contribution plans (IRAs, etc.), making good investment decisions has become even more critical. As governments rack up more and more debt, funding it can be increasingly costly. Making poor investment and finance decisions can cost society dearly.

The Stephen D. Cutler Center for Investments and Finance advances the understanding and practice of investments and finance in our global economy. The Center supports the finance faculty and its valuable research which allows both individuals and executives to make better decisions. Through the “live money” Babson College Fund, we help train future investment managers. We help develop student leaders in investments and finance by sponsoring student-lead organizations, such as the Babson Investment Management Association. The Cutler Center promotes thought leadership through hosting leading speakers from academia to government to investment management who present and interact with our faculty, students, alumni, and business leaders.

Our programs and initiatives are only possible through the generous support of our benefactors, finance faculty, Executives-in-Residence and Advisory Board.

Thank you for your interest in the Cutler Center at Babson College.
