Graduate Experiential Learning

Organizational Partnerships

Babson offers several great ways to engage. In all of these ways, you offer an invaluable benefit to these students with insights, perspective, and guidance, and we truly appreciate our partner organizations in helping us deliver a unique experience for our students. Through our academic pedagogy of Entrepreneurial Thought and Action®, our students are prepared to make a difference from day one.

Experiential Learning programs at Babson connect partner organizations with teams of four to seven MBA students. Under the direction of a faculty advisor, students have the opportunity to leverage Entrepreneurial Thought and Action®, critical thinking, problem solving, and teamwork skills to tackle real challenges, in real organizations, in real time.

“As a small business director, I can state without equivocation that the [MCFE] team went well above and beyond the quality of work that our management team expected … took the time to clearly understand the business dilemma, and worked to find a solution that fits within its available resources.”
