Graduate Student Council

The Graduate Student Council (GSC) is the eyes, ears, and voice of the graduate student body.

The council is comprised of graduate students across all programs and acts as a liaison between students, faculty, and the administration.

GSC Goals

  • Promote interaction between members of the graduate student body, the broader Babson community, and the world beyond
  • Support the graduate student educational experience
  • Foster an atmosphere of camaraderie, understanding, support, and goodwill at Babson

These goals are accomplished through a variety of GSC-sponsored events and consistent solicitation and implementation of student feedback. The GSC also helps coordinate the more than 30 student-run clubs.

GSC members are elected in both the spring and fall. To contact the Graduate Student Council please email
