Price-Babson Symposium for Entrepreneurship Educators

January 10–14, 2022

Wellesley, Massachusetts

Teaching Entrepreneurship Creates Economic and Social Value

Entrepreneurship is a key force behind global well-being and economic and social progress. It also needs to adapt to constant change. Those who teach entrepreneurship benefit from a consistent commitment to renewing their inspiration and tools. 

For 30+ years, the Price-Babson Symposium for Entrepreneurship Educators has helped higher education faculty and administrators take their entrepreneurship teaching and programming to the next level. Taught at the nation’s #1 school for entrepreneurship and led by pre-eminent entrepreneurship educator Heidi Neck, this weeklong immersive symposium emphasizes that how you teach is just as important as what you teach.

Make Leaps in Your Pedagogy, Networking, and Institutional Impact

Not only will you experience Babson's best practices and teaching methods, you'll learn a one-of-a-kind entrepreneurship framework, Babson's hallmark methodology, Entrepreneurial Thought & Action® (ET&A). You’ll benefit from action-based learning and pedagogical best practices, elevating your impact in the classroom. Form long-lasting, mutually beneficial relationships with other top-performing academics like yourself as you grow your network of global entrepreneurship educators.
