Business Graduate Programs Designed to Optimize Your Potential

Want to start a business? Transform your corporate team? Influence social change? Babson’s graduate business programs give ambitious achievers the increased self-awareness, expanded mindsets, and fundamental skills needed to step into your full potential and address the greatest challenges of business and society, whether in established organizations or new ventures.

 

Entrepreneurial Leaders Are the Future

Seventy percent of Babson graduate school alumni see themselves as entrepreneurs and 46% of those who see themselves as entrepreneurs have never owned or operated a business. That’s because entrepreneurial leaders do more than just start businesses. They lead change from within large organizations. They make communities around the world better by tackling global social issues. They see problems as opportunities, and they know how to take action to solve them.

The world is in constant social, civic, and economic flux. And, Babson’s approach to entrepreneurial leadership is more essential than ever. Because where others see pure chaos, entrepreneurial leaders see creative potential. Regardless of your professional goals, the mindset you develop at Babson will shape the way we all work tomorrow.

Sarah Stefanon
Initially I sought Babson because of its highly regarded reputation in entrepreneurship. What sold me was the community. I came for a visit, sat in on a class, had lunch with professors and students, and immediately realized that they were the kindest, most diverse group of people and personalities I had ever been around. I wanted to experience more of that and get a phenomenal education on top of it.
