Ways to Engage

Babson Consulting Experience (BCE): A signature learning experience of all MBA formats, BCE gives students an opportunity to deepen their understanding of conceptual and developmental tools learned in the classroom through hands-on applications in real-world contexts.

Management Consulting Field Experience (MCFE): Offered to students in both a seven- and 14-week timeline, this elective course is available to all four MBA programs throughout various times of the year. Teams work in collaboration with a partner organization and assigned MCFE faculty advisor to analyze a real-time organizational opportunity and create value-added solutions. 

Strategic Analysis Consulting Project (SACP): This nine-week project offering is specific to our Master of Science in Entrepreneurial Leadership (MSEL) core curriculum. While engaged in the spring semester Strategy course, student teams will work in collaboration with a partner organization and an assigned faculty advisor to analyze a real-time organizational opportunity and create value-added solution.

Business Analytics Field Project: This 14-week program is specific to our Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA) core curriculum. Teams of our MSBA students will work in collaboration with a partner organization and an assigned faculty advisor to analyze a dataset, drawing on many of the concepts/tools/models that they’ve learned throughout their MSBA coursework, to produce insights and develop managerial recommendations.

"The final report the Babson MBA students prepared for BOOST was very impressive. We plan to use it as a guiding tool for our company expansion as they did an excellent job researching, were on target with our expectations, and exceeded them!"
