Message From the Provost
College is a truly unique academic institution. Our core academic objective is
to be a community that continuously delivers innovative student experiences—both
inside and outside of the classroom—which develop and mentor responsible entrepreneurial
leaders who take bold, ethical actions that simultaneously benefit society, the
natural environment, and their organizations.
is a dynamic laboratory for learning which delivers a rigorous experience for
all of our students. Our academic excellence is based on a philosophy that is
reflected in the following two concepts:
- Entrepreneurial Thought and Action® represents the mindset and approach to life that gives our graduates the ability to both see opportunities in every situation and take actions to improve the situation. Our students are doers. And, like the most successful entrepreneurs, our graduates reflect deeply on who they are, immerse themselves in the context they face, and act from a set of values that recognizes the need for simultaneous consideration of social, economic, environmental responsibility, and sustainability.
- Entrepreneurship of All Kinds™ captures the idea that regardless of their career choice—starting new businesses, leading social or nonprofit ventures, managing businesses of all sizes, working as finance professionals, lawyers, or educators, growing family businesses, or leading public sector or civic organizations—Babson graduates are equipped with the mindset and method that allows them to capitalize on opportunities to create value for their organizations and for the world.
you put this altogether, it’s easy to see why Babson is recognized as one of
the most innovative academic institutions in the world. Stay connected as we
continue to redefine entrepreneurship education.
