​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Message from Provost Mark P. Rice

More so today than at any other time in history, the human race faces a plethora of grand challenges: threat of pandemics, nuclear proliferation and the growing potential of nuclear war, environmental degradation, threats to the global food supply related to unsustainable agricultural practices, climate change, failing governments and failing socio-political systems, terrorism, and so forth.

We need creative, innovative, entrepreneurial leaders who can identify and pursue opportunities to address these grand challenges for the benefit of humanity. Babson’s mission is to educate entrepreneurial leaders who create great economic and social value—everywhere. We are committed to advancing Entrepreneurial Thought & Action® by establishing in the members of the Babson community the mindset, the skillset and the knowledge base needed to solve complex problems, see endless opportunities, take positive action, and improve the human condition.

As you explore the Babson website, you will learn more about key Babson departments, groups, and programs—our faculty, Student Affairs, the Undergraduate School, the F. W. Olin Graduate School, Executive and Enterprise Education, the Glavin Office of Multicultural and International Education, the Sorenson Center for the Arts, and our various centers of excellence, as well as our impressive entrepreneurs in residence. Collectively, they do the work that has made Babson College so unique in so many ways. Please explore all the ways Babson provides life-changing experiences for our students.
