How Has Being a Member of the Babson Community Helped Impact Your Career?

My education during Babson’s MBA program armed me with the technical skills I needed to run my own business. The relationships we foster though our community support these goals and motivate me to continue to follow their example. The standards set in the Babson community are benchmarks for my partners and I to live up to professionally and personally.

Why Does the World Need More Leaders with an Entrepreneurial Mindset?

What Do Others Need to Know about Babson?

The Babson community helps support each other and pushes new business ideas to grow. The help of our peers is part of every Babson success story. I also see Babson students taking multidisciplinary approaches to their enterprises. The mix of arts and science backgrounds creates exciting businesses that people want to be a part of.
