Cutler Center

Seminar Speaker Series

The Cutler Center sponsors the Seminar Speaker Series.

This series allows Babson’s finance faculty to build relationships in the academic community, to exchange research ideas with other top researchers from other institutions, to share academic research with the local practitioner community and to enhance Babson’s reputation as a research institution. Our top finance students are given a rare opportunity to be exposed to advanced academic research that is relevant and interesting. Some Babson students go on to pursue academic careers.
