Coming Home

Welcome Home

Welcome back! Now that you’ve returned from your abroad experience, you may be asking yourself, “What’s next?”

To keep your experience alive, continue your global mindset development and perhaps fulfill those travel-bug needs, we have compiled a list of resources to help you reflect, articulate, and integrate your newly acquired global skillset.

Opportunities at Babson and Beyond

There are many opportunities to continue developing your global mindset here at Babson and around the world. Here are a few to consider:

Academic and Career

  • Visit the Center for Career Development (CCD): Visit the CCD and meet with a Career Counselor to learn more about international career opportunities and how to incorporate your education abroad experience into your job-search materials and interviews.
  • Review concentrations: Check to see if your Elective Abroad or International Consulting Experience can apply to your concentration. Consider exploring a new concentration such as the Global Business Management concentration.
  • Consider an additional education abroad experience: If your schedule allows, consider participating in another Elective Abroad, International Consulting Experience, or semester abroad.

Extracurricular

  • Participate in International Education Week (IEW): Each year, Babson hosts a series of events, speakers, and activities during a week in November, known as International Education Week. IEW is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This annual initiative promotes international understanding and builds support for international education and exchange.
  • Apply for a Service Immersion Trip: The Office of Faith & Service sponsors service immersion trips during the college’s winter and spring breaks. These noncredit trips are opportunities for students to engage in an intensive service experience with communities in need. Through reflective activities students also are empowered to promote civic engagement, develop their leadership abilities and an appreciation of diversity. These experiential learning opportunities are designed to help students develop a sense of personal identity and community, as well as an understanding of important societal issues.
  • Campus Events: Check out one of the many events hosted by the Glavin Office of Multicultural & International Education.
