Alumni Leadership Awards
The Alumni Leadership Awards are presented by the Babson Alumni Association (BAA) annually in the fall, during Back to Babson reunion and homecoming weekend.
Through the Alumni Leadership Awards, the BAA looks to reward alumni, parents, friends and faculty and staff who have actively given their time and talent to the Babson Community. The leadership awards increase their recognition in the community and put them in touch with other leaders. We count on the nominations of others to ensure that all worthy are considered for these prestigious awards. The 2013 Leadership Awards Dinner will be held on Friday, September 27, 2013. All alumni, parent, and friend volunteers are invited.
