Become a Leader in the Life Sciences and Healthcare Industries

A Babson MBA gives you a strong business foundation and the entrepreneurial mindset needed to overcome obstacles and create opportunities in life science and healthcare organizations of all types and sizes.

Life sciences and healthcare are two of the world’s most complex industries—and their need for innovation has never been greater. Through the life sciences and healthcare concentration and our focus on experiential learning, you’ll learn by working on real-world business projects in real-time alongside doctorate-level educators and industry professionals that work with local and global corporations across sectors.

"Learning about the business of life sciences and healthcare at Babson is grounded in innovation and entrepreneurship. This prepares students to drive change in a sector that badly needs it."
– Gaurab Bhardwaj
Associate Professor and Louis J. Lavigne, Jr. Family Endowed Term Chair in Strategy & Planning
