Research, both theoretical and practitioner focused, is the cornerstone of scholarly activities. Faculty members each develop, in conjunction with their division chairperson, a program of scholarly activity that relates to individual, division, and College needs. Expectations are that faculty members develop a research pipeline, that is, continuous scholarly work with projects in various stages of completion.
The Babson research site serves a dual purpose. First, it is a showcase of the faculty’s research projects, curriculum development, and case writing activities. It features faculty awards, publications, and presentations. Second, it is the central location of information pertaining to resources available to faculty to facilitate their research endeavors as well as the development of teaching materials and case studies.
As an institution of higher learning, Babson College is committed to full-compliance with all federal, state, and local research compliance requirements, including financial conflict of interest. We have made Babson’s Financial Conflict of Interest Policy (pdf) available to the public.
