Office of the President
Welcome to the world’s #1 recognized institution for entrepreneurship education, whose mission is to prepare entrepreneurial leaders to create economic and social value everywhere.
The spirit of Babson is infectious. There is a positive energy on campus that is both nurturing and inspiring for our students. The result is a learning environment that encourages bold thinking, measured risks, taking action, and the knowledge that we are all part of a special community.
Today, everyone, everywhere, is talking about entrepreneurship. Increasingly, the world is recognizing and valuing Entrepreneurship of All Kinds™ as a powerful force for solving the economic, social, and environmental issues confronting our world.
At Babson, we understand that the word entrepreneurship means much more than just starting a business. Entrepreneurial Thought and Action® can, and is, being applied everywhere from large corporations and family businesses to nonprofit organizations and social causes, and by people of all ages, ethnicities, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Babson has been at the forefront of seamlessly weaving social, economic, and environmental responsibility and sustainability into the fabric of our business curriculum. At Babson, entrepreneurship of every kind begins with the triple bottom line: people, planet, and profits. Community involvement and social responsibility are not an afterthought for Babson students; they are an integral part of the entrepreneurial process from day one. I believe entrepreneurship is the world’s greatest force for creating social and economic value. And, the value of increased entrepreneurship to the world will be immense.
I invite you to visit Babson and learn more about what makes us unique, and I encourage you to join us on a journey that will have a profound impact on your life and prepare you to take what you learn here and share it with the world.
