Babson Blended Learning: Test It Out
Babson Blended Learning: Test It Out is for prospective students interested in experiencing Babson’s MBA firsthand, through a graduate-level, blended learning course.
Babson Blended Learning: Test It Out is open to students interested in the
Blended Learning MBA,
Evening MBA, or the Master of Science in Business Analytics. On-campus classes for the May/June session of Test It Out will take place at
Babson's Wellesley campus and all interested students must be willing to come to this location for these sessions.
This cohort of prospective students will be taught by
Senior Lecturer in Management, Dwight Gertz.
The course, Decisions, Decisions, Decisions: How Managers Make Good and Bad Choices will be taught in the blended learning format with both online learning and collaboration as well as on-campus classes. The course will start with a mandatory kickoff on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 and run through Friday, June 30, 2017.
|Wednesday, May 10||On-campus session (online simulcast available), 6 p.m. ET|
|Tuesday, May 16||Online session, 8 p.m. ET|
|Saturday, June 3||On-campus classes, 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. ET|
|Friday, June 30||On-campus classes, 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. ET|
Successful completion of the Decisions course will allow students who subsequently enter an MBA part-time program, the Master of Science in Business Analytics, or the Certificate in Advanced Management program to earn 3 advanced standing credits.* Students who complete the Babson Test It Out course with a grade of B or better are eligible to receive a GMAT test waiver should they later apply into the evening program.†
Because Test It Out is designed to help prospective students explore Babson, Babson alumni and former Test It Out participants are not eligible to enroll.
*These credits can be applied towards your graduate program should you start the program in the fall 2017 term or spring 2018 term.
†Waived at the discretion of the Admissions Committee. Please note the Blended Learning program does not require the GMAT.
"The Test-It-Out Program not only helped clinch my decision that the Babson Blended Learning MBA was right for me, but also provided thorough knowledge of the business strategy concepts in the course. I strongly recommend it to those interested in the Babson MBA."
