The MCFE Program is designed to link the business and investment community with Babson College students through a consulting team project. Graduate Students work in teams of three to five people, supported by a faculty advisor with the objective of examining an actual business or investment situation. The assignments take place in a variety of business environments which have included Fortune 500 companies, growth companies, venture capital firms, hedge funds and large and small investment companies. The team projects cover approximately 14 weeks during the fall or spring semester, with students earning three credits. At the conclusion of the project, the MCFE team's findings and recommendations are presented to the sponsoring company in a detailed, written report and oral presentation.
The program provides students with an opportunity to apply their classroom-based learning to real-world business issues and investment situations where they and their partnering companies gain value as well as exposure to new opportunities, innovative solutions and resources. It also provides a unique perspective for anyone interested in either the investment (investment banking, traditional asset management or hedge fund, venture capital/private equity and private wealth management), corporate finance or consulting area.
