Growing out of Bob and Jan Weissman’s deep commitment to Babson, our newest and most prestigious scholarship program fulfills their desire to make an investment that will build and sustain a new level of educational excellence for future business and community leaders.
“I’ll always be grateful that I’ve lived in a society where I could aspire and achieve. Now I am banking on Babson College and Weissman Scholars to play an increasingly important role in building a better world.”
—Robert Weissman ’64, H’94, P’87 ’90
As a member of the class of 1964, Weissman’s commitment to Babson first started when he was an undergraduate student. He was granted an honorary degree from Babson in 1994 and is a parent of two Babson graduates—a son, Michael, who graduated from the undergraduate program in 1987, and a son, Chris, who graduated from the MBA program in 1990. Weissman is a member of the Babson Board of Trustees in addition to his corporate career as a chairman and CEO.
