Investing in Tomorrow’s Entrepreneurial Leaders

Today, more than ever, we need visionary leaders who can provide inventive solutions to our most complex problems. Thanks to many generous supporters, Babson is educating and inspiring the leaders whose energy and ideas are transforming our world.

In fiscal year 2012, more than 6,000 donors contributed greater than $20.5 million to Babson, providing critical resources for innovative programs and initiatives. The result is a Babson that is thriving. For the Class of ’16, we received a record number of undergraduate applications and admitted less than 30 percent of these students, placing Babson among the country’s 50 most competitive colleges. As one of America’s elite colleges, we have been ranked No. 1 for entrepreneurship by U.S. News & World Report, an accolade we have received 16 times for our Undergraduate School and 19 times for our MBA program. Babson also is ranked No. 11 in return on investment among colleges, but it is your investment in Babson that allows our students to live and learn entrepreneurially.

Thanks to you, half the students at Babson benefit from financial aid and scholarships. Donor support for Babson’s key priorities—the exceptional faculty; trademark centers such as the Center for Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership and the Stephen D. Cutler Center for Investments and Finance; and our cutting-edge research initiative, the Entrepreneur Experience Lab—sustains a vibrant learning community prepared to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

Thank you for your continued investment in Babson. Your support helps us prepare Babson students to create economic and social value everywhere.
