“I was skeptical at first. How much could really be covered in such a short period of time? The course turned out to be such a great opportunity. The syllabus covered many useful topics that helped prepare me for real world situations. This experience was important for me because it gave a preview into Babson's MBA program including the demands and rewards.”
