Babson College will be altering regular operations due to the ongoing impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Family Entrepreneurship Amplifier Course

One of the most exciting initiatives at the Institute for Family Entrepreneurship (IFE) is the Family Entrepreneurship Amplifier program, which is dedicated to both students and their families. This unique program is informed by family theory research that demonstrates successful and highly functioning business families are grounded in a unique set of knowledge and skills that are not part of the general curriculum at Babson or any other institution of higher learning. To develop this capacity, the Amplifier engages families during the student’s entire Babson experience. A key outcome of this immersive experience is that students and their families foster the growth of their entrepreneurial legacy by co-creating a shared vision.

Application for the UG level Amplifier Course Fall 2020 is now open. The priority application deadline is Tuesday, February 18th, 2020.
