Admissions Bootcamp: Applying to Grad School

The Future Is Fueled by Entrepreneurial Leaders

You’ve made it this far, so let Babson's Graduate Admissions team help you make your dreams a reality.

Join us for our Admissions Bootcamp to get inside tips on how to prepare your most compelling graduate school application. Attend a mock interview to better understand how to be a standout candidate throughout that process. Interact with other prospective students and Admissions Directors during the mock admissions committee to gain insight into how applicants are reviewed and evaluated. Plus, enjoy on-demand content and one-on-one sessions to ask the admissions team anything that is on your mind.

As application deadlines quickly approach, you may have questions about requirements, specific sections of your application, or what the process looks like after you hit ‘submit.’ No matter what stage of the application process you’re in, we have sessions catered to your specific needs. You will gain clear guidance on how to complete the application for a part-time, full-time, online, or in-person graduate program right in time for our January deadlines.

All event attendees will automatically receive an application fee waiver of up to $100. Registration will grant you access to all of the sessions giving you the flexibility to attend the ones that will be most helpful to you. View the full agenda below.

Advanced registration is closed. Walk-ins are welcome. Please join us virtually for the sessions that are of most interest to you and work best with your schedule.
