Entrepreneurs and educators will be at Babson from January 8 to 11 to participate in the Price-Babson Symposium for Entrepreneurship Educators.​

As the recognized leader in entrepreneurship education, Babson College seeks to raise the quality, the content and the process of teaching entrepreneurship through our Symposia for Entrepreneurship Educators (SEE) programs. This flagship open enrollment program is held on Babson's campus with the goal of building an international cadre of educators who understand the importance of combining entrepreneurship theory and practice in teaching. Cross-disciplinary educators from around the world are invited to attend this innovative and practical program.
The program is designed for academics or entrepreneurs from any discipline who teach or have a desire to teach entrepreneurship. Participants register as a team of one academic and one entrepreneur, or can register individually. Babson encourages the academic-entrepreneur team because the intersection of theory and practice enhances the education experience of the students we teach.
Attendance is limited to 60 participants to preserve the intimacy and collegiality of the program. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. The program cost is $2,750.00 and a 10% discount is offered for 3-5 participants from the same institution.  The next offering of the program will run from May 28 – June 1, 2012; please click here to register.
During an intensive four-day period, participants explore the entrepreneurial process, the “art and craft” of teaching and learning entrepreneurship. The program provides an introduction to case method teaching and live, venture-based teaching methodologies. Participants are encouraged to identify, plan, and personalize their entry (or re-entry) strategy into academia, and to improve as teachers, learners, researchers, colleagues, and entrepreneurs. They identify and explore new content, programs, and materials, and are exposed to the realities of the cyberspace revolution.
