A Message From the President

Dear Degree Candidates, Families, and Friends:

On behalf of the faculty and members of the Boards of Governance, I invite you to join us at the Babson College Commencement on Saturday, May 20, 2017.

Commencement is a wonderful day of celebration not only for graduates, but for the parents, families, and friends who have encouraged, supported, and believed in the Class of 2017. Our graduates have committed to living and learning entrepreneurially during their time at Babson and have worked diligently to earn their degrees. Now, they are prepared to take the next step in their life’s journey.

At Babson, we are focused on preparing Entrepreneurs of All Kinds to lead in a new way, creating social and economic value simultaneously, and, in doing so, transforming lives, businesses, and communities for the better. We are proud of the many accomplishments our students have already achieved, and we are confident that their Babson experience will allow them to pursue their dreams and reach their goals.

Again, my heartfelt congratulations to the newest alumni of Babson College. We look forward to the positive impact the Class of 2017 will make on our world as entrepreneurial leaders who create economic and social value everywhere.

Kerry Healey

President Kerry Healey
