Entrepreneurial Leaders Are the Future

An entrepreneurial leader has the characteristics of all good leaders: collaborative, thoughtful, focused, motivated. Someone who values optimism, coming together, experimenting, and learning from mistakes to produce the best results. Why Babson focuses on entrepreneurial leadership is simple—the best undergraduate business school will teach you how to have and execute this mindset.

Entrepreneurial leaders don’t dwell on the problems, they solve them. In their own, unique way.

Our students have never met a status quo they didn’t question. You may wonder how fashion could be more sustainable. Or how to be a better public speaker. Or what streaming means for the future of Hollywood. Or how you can support immigrants while exploring your own heritage. These questions are entrepreneurial leadership in action. See an issue, ask questions, take action.

“The way entrepreneurs think progressively and outside of the box, that’s what we need and that’s what we’ll do.”

Lexie Cheng ’25

“As the climate clock rapidly nears the end of its countdown, we're still drawn to professions that further perpetuate the problems that we want to see changed. … Entrepreneurship provides a tinge of optimism by giving us the ability to be proactive instead of reactive and to create long-term solutions before long-term damage becomes irreparable.”

“Mental health is not something that is talked about in locker rooms. … My goal is to ensure that no one feels alone. My hope is to spread as much awareness as possible.”

The Classroom Is Your Playground

Babson is a hub for creative solutions to societal concerns. We provide the resources, and you run with them. We designed our curriculum, a mix of business and the liberal arts and sciences, around practical knowledge and hands-on learning.

“When I came to Babson, I wanted to turn my nonprofit into a beauty business but the more I learned about entrepreneurship, the more I felt like I needed more experience before doing that.”

Learning by doing is our mantra, and never is that more true than in Foundations of Management and Entrepreneurship (or FME, as our students call it). You will turn an idea into a tangible venture—all while learning what actually makes a business work. 

It’s a pivotal first step in a Babson student’s journey and one that pays off immediately. You may even discover where your passions lie in the process. We offer 25 concentrations, focused on a different area of business. Future accountants, government workers, financial advisors, sustainability advocates, and supply chain experts all have a place here.

Make the Picture-Perfect Choice

Our dynamic, supportive environment and state-of-the-art facilities make Babson’s campus hard to leave (and hard not to post about!).

Plus, we’re neighborly partners with Wellesley College and F.W. Olin College of Engineering and a stone’s throw from Boston.

Adventure awaits, so come see how we balance working hard with playing hard.

Jaylen Bell ’21

former president of the Black Student Union, on The Johnson House

“As we talk about how we can provide social economic value, even globally, I think it’s important to have a house and have a space dedicated to that on Babson’s campus. There’s a need for social economic value globally, yes, but there’s a need for social economic value in our backyard, in Boston.”
