Thought Leadership

The Cutler Center promotes thought leadership by hosting or sponsoring a wide variety of conferences and events throughout the year. These events allow Babson faculty, students, and alumni to learn, network, and innovate in a collaborative setting. 

Our various events on the Wellesley and Boston campuses also bring together leading figures in finance to share their experiences, provide perspective, and identify the areas of greatest opportunity and risk. These speakers, who present cutting-edge research, market outlooks, and insights from their real-world experience, have included:

  • Tim Chae, General Partner, 500 Startups
  • Jay Clayton, Chairman, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
  • Peter Lynch, Investor, Mutual Fund Manager & Philanthropist
  • Joel Tillinghast, Portfolio Manager, Fidelity Investments
