Babson College will offer a Master Degree in Entrepreneurial Leadership beginning in September 2014.

The nine-month program, which will award a Master of Science in Management (MSM), is designed for those who have just completed or recently earned their Bachelor’s degree in Business or Liberal Arts and have little or no business experience.

“Recent Liberal Arts graduates are well-prepared for the creative thinking that leads to innovation and problem solving,” said Babson Professor Kate McKone Sweet. “Our MSM in Entrepreneurial Leadership will allow them to leverage these skills to create solutions to real world problems, and to develop the leadership skills necessary to achieve long-term career success in whatever they do."

Babson’s MSM curriculum provides a seamless combination of foundational business knowledge and entrepreneurial leadership skills, enhanced by experiential learning with a diverse peer group. It will take place during two, 14-week semesters at Babson’s main campus in Wellesley, Massachusetts.

The program will also offer students two international experiences to supplement and build upon the campus experiences.

In addition, students will have the opportunity to participate in several innovative Create, Teach and Consult projects, which will allow them to:

  • create a sustainable business, initiative, or social venture
  • teach in a developing nation with the Babson Entrepreneurial Leadership Academy
  • consult for a global firm and present the team’s strategy in person at the organization overseas

Courses will be fully integrated with the Create, Teach and Consult projects and will provide a solid background in all core business disciplines.

These experiences, combined with career strategy skills and exposure to more than 1,000 employers who recruit at Babson every year, will prepare students for their desired path, whether they wish to start a business or join a major corporation.

“Our new Master of Science in Entrepreneurial Leadership is designed to educate individuals - entrepreneurial leaders, who will possess the skills and desire to create economic and social value in organizations of all types and sizes,” said Vice President and Provost Dennis Hanno. “Babson’s new MSM is developed to prepare students to lead with confidence, creativity, with a focus on people, profits, and the planet.”
