Page Content 1

Babson College’s Master of Science in Management in Entrepreneurial Leadership (MSEL) is a nine-month, cohort-based program that prepares students to lead in the workplace and world with confidence, creativity, and a focus on social, economic, and environmental responsibility and sustainability.

The Economist, a prominent global business magazine, has recognized Babson as a leading provider of business education in its inaugural Masters in Management 2017 Ranking.

Babson is named No. 3 for geographical diversity, No. 5 in the U.S., and No. 23 worldwide.

In Babson’s profileThe Economist lists the F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business’ strengths as entrepreneurship, sustainability and social innovation, and business analytics.

Babson’s graduate school was also recently ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the Top 10 Business Schools with the Most International Diversity.


To be included in The Economist’s Masters of Management ranking, a program must: be full-time, taught in English (at least 50 percent), taught mainly on-campus (not distance learning), have a cohort of at least 40 students for both the current and previous academic year, have accreditation from AACSB or EQUIS, be a general business program open to non-business majors, be aimed at pre-experience candidates (with an average work experience of less than one-and-a-half years across the cohort), have no more than 40 percent of the degree focused on a single function area, and be of international standing, with a good proportion of international students and faculty.

Data was collected in early 2017 using two surveys. The first was completed by schools, covering quantitative matters such as salary of graduates, number of registered alumni, diversity of recruiters and the like. A second survey was sent to current students and recent alumni, asking them to rate various aspects of their business schools. Respondents were also asked to give salary details to verify data provided by schools.
