A Babson degree is globally recognized. Our graduates are in high demand, and our alumni network stands 43,000 strong, with many ready to connect, network and hire other Babson graduates.
We are confident in our ability to deliver a high quality, impactful learning experience in any format and have made many of the changes necessary for this current situation by building on our nearly 20-year history of successful distance learning and innovative curriculum development. Investments nearing $9M have been made in faculty development, hardware, and software as well as safety and health preparations that will elevate the student experience. We have been charging the same per credit rate across course delivery formats for many years, as such, there are no plans for refunds or discounts in current or future courses. While we have significant additional infrastructure and operating costs due to the pandemic, we are not increasing tuition and are not introducing any new fees to offset these special costs.
Graduate students have two primary choices for fall classes: hybrid and fully online classes. Both hybrid and fully online classes are accessible to all students, regardless of whether they are on campus.
Hybrid classes blend face-to-face instruction with technology to accommodate our de-densification needs, and include teaching techniques such as split attendance, small groups, and blended learning.
Fully online classes provide engaging and dynamic delivery of content completely online.

The Graduate School (for those taking classes out of Babson’s Wellesley or Boston campuses) will start classes Monday, August 31. View the full academic calendar for more information.
Our Blended Learning Miami program will start class on Wednesday, August 19, and students will receive information in the coming weeks about course delivery that aligns with our licensure granted by Florida Education Commission.
The Graduate School’s course registration will open the second week of July. Returning students received emails regarding registration in mid-June. Incoming MSF and MSBA students will be sent an email regarding registration early next week. Incoming One Year and Second Year MBA students, as well as MSEL and Blended Learning Miami students, will be enrolled directly into their core courses.
We continue to plan for a variety of delivery methods, and course formats may shift based on evolving public health requirements, with the expectation that all courses will be delivered either hybrid or online. The Graduate School will pivot and go fully remote after the Thanksgiving break if COVID-19 requires us to do so.
