International Programs and Study Abroad

Babson’s Office of International Programs provides resources and support for a wide variety of international experiences that extend our students’ opportunities all over the globe.

Babson maintains affiliations with a vast number of institutions in more than 30 countries, including multi-country programs. Students can study abroad for shorter courses of a few weeks to longer terms of a semester or year.

It is important to start planning for study abroad your first year in college. This means attending the planning sessions offered by the Office of International Programs. Your professors can also be a helpful resource. At least one year of college study or the equivalent is recommended for students who wish to study or use a foreign language while abroad. Many of the stronger programs require at least two years of language study.

“I have studied four semesters of Japanese at Babson and have become close friends with my classmates and the professor. Through the professor’s teaching, coaching, and support, I have gained not only valuable knowledge of the Japanese language but the confidence to embark on a one-year study abroad in Japan at Waseda University to gain a deeper understanding of the language and culture.”
