BABSON CONSULTING ALLIANCE PROGRAM

Babson Consulting Alliance Program One of Babson's signature learning experiences is the Babson Consulting Alliance Program (BCAP). BCAP plays an integral role in helping students integrate their classroom knowledge into sound business practices. First-year MBA candidates are matched with alliance companies from industries in which they have expressed a career interest. Guided by an advisor, BCAP teams work directly with company representatives to complete a project. The BCAP project is designed to address specific alliance company needs and will focus on solutions to real business problems. Past projects have focused on topics such as market segmentation, organizational design, performance measurement, activity analysis, and costing skills that are developed in the MBA curriculum. Typically the project concludes with a written report and a presentation with recommendations from the team to company executives. Babson's context of experiential learning involves a three part accountability structure: Peer group learning, an academic advisor and curriculum, and a client sponsor.
