The Babson Difference

Each of Babson’s graduate programs balances action and experimentation with rigorous analysis and business fundamentals. This unique approach, a methodology called Entrepreneurial Thought and Action​​​​​​​​​​®​, allows Babson students to create economic and social value everywhere, so no matter what degree they pursue, they graduate with an entrepreneurial mindset that sets them apart in any industry or job function.

Babson’s new MSM in Entrepreneurial Leadership program employs design methods to teach entrepreneurial approaches. To accommodate these methods and to support innovation, the Graduate School recently introduced Design Zone 125​, a class space designed to enable collaboration, creative thinking, and problem-solving. Since innovative problem-solving is an essential goal in the Babson MSM degree program, faculty and staff sought to recreate the space to help shape the culture and habits of a creative learning community.
