Experiencing the World
The global awareness afforded by an international experience is an integral part of the Honors Program. All honors students are required to participate in a study abroad program, through any of Babson's credit-bearing study abroad programs (including a semester abroad or Babson Elective Abroad) or through the London Honors Program, specifically designed for honors students.
Honors International Program in London
This program enables selected honors students to gain global competence through academic and practical experience. Each student takes an intensive summer course at the London School of Economics (LSE) and also participates in a volunteer internship at a London area company. The program is preceded by an orientation with Babson faculty in which students learn about British culture through a wide variety of enriching activities within London. Internship sponsor companies, which vary from year to year, have included British Telecom, Navigant Consulting, Eaton Vance, National Health Service, and Stoz Friedberg. Students live in an LSE dormitory for the duration of the London program.
