Global Management Concentration

The Global Management Concentration at Babson is a rigorous program for students who are truly dedicated to pursuing an internationally oriented education and career. This program encourages Babson students to study abroad, think globally, and to pursue a variety of international business and area studies courses.

By combining 9 credits of course work with an experiential component to broaden the understanding of global management, students interested in internationally active firms will achieve depth in a skill area – such as marketing or finance – and acquire a global mindset.

The Global Management Concentration will be noted on your MBA transcript.
