Why did you choose Babson for your graduate education?

Before coming to Babson, I earned an undergraduate degree from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. With my background in economics and finance, I knew Babson would provide me with the opportunity to refine the skills I already had, while simultaneously giving me exposure to entrepreneurship at an entirely new level.

As a Babson student, what did you do when not in class?

While at Babson, I was able to travel to Tanzania for the Babson Entrepreneurial Leadership Academy for a one-week program, working with high schools students in Karatu. Additionally, I was a mentor for the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship and for the Coaching for Leadership and Teamwork Program.

What was your favorite part of the Babson student experience?

The consulting trip to Chile during spring break!
