Babson, Olin, and Wellesley Partnership

Leveraging unique strengths to enhance our overall mission.

Babson College, the top-ranked college for the study of entrepreneurship, Wellesley College, one of the country’s premier liberal arts colleges, and F.W. Olin College of Engineering, one of the country’s leading engineering colleges, have formalized a collaborative agreement that builds on their geographic proximity and complementary curricula to explore the synergies in the schools’ three missions.

The three colleges plan to build on existing initiatives and explore new academic, social and business relationships. Examples include joint research and curricular projects, common centers to coordinate conferences and programs, and shared services. At the same time, the institutions hope to break new ground in interdisciplinary studies and projects.
