Our San Francisco curriculum features two intermediate liberal arts classes and two entrepreneurship classes that are tailored to capitalize on the unique history and entrepreneurial ecosystem of the region.*
Fall 2015 courses include:
Silicon Technology Ventures
Professor: Mary Gale
Silicon Technology Ventures is more than a class; it is an experiential learning opportunity that blends classroom learning, simulations, assignments, and field experiences to gain valuable real-world insights into starting and growing technology businesses.
Consulting in Technology Entrepreneurship (CiTE)
Professor: Allan Cohen
The CiTE class offers students the opportunity to gain practical industry experience while working with professionals in the business community. This course connects Bay Area organizations with talented Babson students who work as consultants to address a current business challenge.
Golden Cities: The West and Urban America
Professor: Paul Schmitz
Students examine the rise and development of the modern American metropolis in a period of dynamic growth and intense cultural change. Using a range of historical, literary, and cultural sources, the class will investigate how cities have served as catalysts for the nation’s economic, political, and social development.
The West as Frontier in the American Imagination
Professor: Katrin Fischer
Students investigate the myths, realities, and hopes associated with the American West: that ever-moving frontier of the mind and body where visions of American national identity are invented and celebrated, contested and reimagined.
*Consulting in Technology Entrepreneurship meets for face-to face sessions every week. The remaining three courses meet weekly with faculty members via a telepresence system and monthly for face-to-face sessions.
