Languages and Global Cultures

Want to work or study abroad? Spend a year in Spain with a monthly salary from the Spanish Consulate?

Expand micro-lending opportunities in Costa Rica? Teach entrepreneurship in Ghana? Spend a semester in Paris at the Sorbonne? Study in Tokyo while learning the video game industry? These are just a few examples of opportunities recent Babson language students have chosen.

"Babson is the ultimate international launch pad! Between the student body, global exchanges, international short-term programs, multicultural classes and programming, Babson motivates students to become global citizens who work to have an impact on the world." - Anna Dibble ('22)

Knowledge of other languages and cultures:

  • enriches and informs our abilities to manage and solve problems, and to determine and create value in a global context
  • recognizes and values the multicultural composition of Babson’s student body
  • enriches opportunities for interaction, deepening a sense of community and shared involvement, and
  • deepens and strengthens job opportunities at home and abroad, providing you with highly marketable skills.

Proficiency in another language is a valuable skill that will contribute to your competitiveness in many fields and industries. While the ability to communicate in another language will enhance your marketability no matter what field you pursue, there are some areas of study where studying a language is especially relevant.
