Help define Babson's future by getting involved with key program and volunteer opportunities across campus from career-related programs to admission recruiting to professional development opportunities for your organization.
How do I post an internship or job opportunity to Babson students?
Posting a position is easy. Just visit www.babson.edu/careerconnections and register your company and then post your position. Career Connections is a shared campus platform that will allow you to post opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students as well as alumni.
What companies recruit through Babson’s campus recruiting program?
We work with companies large and small from every industry you can think of to identify great undergraduate and graduate student talent for their business needs.
How can I help my company recruit Babson students?
Be an advocate for talent and connect your company to Babson! If your company is currently hiring for full-time positions or summer internships, consider posting the positions with Babson. Career Connections is our online tool where you can post job openings. In addition, there are many engagement activities your company can participate in to build employer brand and identify top talent. For more information on ways to engage, contact a member of the Centers for Career Development team at www.babson.edu/recruiting.
May I serve as a mentor, help with informational interviews, or serve on a career panel or résumé critiques?
Absolutely. The Centers for Career Development welcome any opportunity to connect current students with alumni working within their areas of interest. We offer several ways to engage: programs such as Résumé Critique Night, mock interviews, and walk-in hours as an Employer in Residence. In addition, CCD manages a Professional Network (ProNet) through our job posting platform Career Connections. Having a presence here allows students to reach out to you directly to learn more about your career path and industry specific experience.

The Career Expo and Internship Fair are two events for undergraduate students that are great opportunities to connect about current job openings and internships. We enjoy seeing many of our alumni join us to represent their companies and interact with our students. For more information, visit www.babson.edu/recruiting.
What is the difference between early decision, early action, and regular decision (Undergraduate)?
Early Decision (ED) applicants agree to enroll at Babson, if admitted. Students may apply for ED to only one college and, if admitted, must immediately withdraw all applications submitted to other institutions. Early Action (EA) is nonbinding, and applicants are eligible to apply for other colleges’ early admission programs. Regular Decision (RD) is the most popular of Babson’s admission plans (deadline is January 1) students learn of their decision in early March and have until May 1 to make their decision.
What is the difference between the four MBA delivery models in terms of curriculum and admission (Graduate)?
The unified curriculum across all of Babson’s MBA program options allow you to select the program type that best suits your lifestyle and objectives, knowing that whichever program option you choose, the core curriculum is consistent, proven, and committed to shaping leaders with a strong business foundation and an entrepreneurial mindset. The One-Year and Two-Year programs are full-time programs for individuals who want to focus their efforts on the MBA experience in a full-time, on-campus environment. Additionally, the One-Year MBA requires a strong prior academic foundation in business. The Evening and Fast Track programs are part-time programs best suited for individuals who would like to remain in the workforce while pursuing their MBA.
May I write a letter of reference? How do I recommend someone for admission?
Yes, we encourage alumni to recommend students who they feel would be successful at Babson. For undergraduate candidates, please write a formal letter of reference and address it to Grant M. Gosselin, Dean of Undergraduate Admission. For graduate candidates, please submit your letter to Barbara J. Selmo, Director, Graduate Admissions.
Are legacies giving any preference in admission?
All legacy applicants are given a second review by the head of Admissions: Dean of Admission and Director of Admissions, for Undergraduate and Graduate, respectively.
Can I help by doing interviews, attending a College fair or assist in another way?
Yes! The Undergraduate Admission and Graduate Admissions offices are always looking for alumni to help with off-campus interviews, attending college fairs, hosting yield receptions, or sitting on panels during our on- and off-campus events. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com to express your interst.
Where can I find more information about the qualifications for both programs?
Information about our evaluation criteria can be found on the Undergraduate Admission website. Qualifications for the MBA programs can be found on our Graduate Admissions website and at the MBA programs page.
How can I financially support Babson and/or encourage others to?
You can direct your gift to financial aid, faculty, academic programs, athletics—any part of the Babson experience that continues to resonate with you—or we can apply it to where it will have the greatest impact. Visit www.babson.edu/giving to give online, learn about matching gifts, planned giving, volunteering, and more ways to support Babson College.
How do I volunteer to help students beyond admissions and career services?
There are many opportunities to help the current students. The Coaching for Leadership and Teamwork Program (CLTP) is one of our largest alumni-supported initiatives. Connecting with students through affinity group activities, serving as a speaker for one of our annual student led forums, and joining students in service from Ghana to Boston are other opportunities.
