Head Shot

In 2020, the widespread effects of the global pandemic impacted companies all over the world. As Babson’s full-time graduate students prepared for graduation, they also prepared to enter a completely unprecedented work environment. Well-equipped to face uncertainty and ambiguity, and well positioned to pivot, think on their feet, and turn challenges into opportunities, our students achieved great success with offer acceptances.

Employers saw our students for the entrepreneurial leaders they are, and were keenly aware of the need to bring innovative minds into their organization now more than ever. We congratulate our recent graduates for their well-earned success and for paving the way for future students to confidently move forward in any environment.
