Babson Graduate Professors are Real-World Innovators

Babson faculty are more than just lecturers. They’re innovators, experts in their field, with years of academic research and tangible results. They take their lessons out of the classroom and into the real world, acting as mentors as they connect students with the resources they need to accomplish their professional goals. 

Providing Hands-on Learning Opportunities

Seize the opportunity to work closely with our engaging and innovative faculty, both in and out of the classroom. Broaden your perspective through dynamic lectures, work one on one to fine-tune your idea, or invite a professor to sit on the board of your startup. Babson’s faculty are eager to support you and your ambitions. 

With Babson’s Entrepreneurial Thought & Action® (ETA™) methodology as the backbone, our faculty members encourage their students to take risks and experiment, making failure a step in the process—not the end of the road. You’ll develop your entrepreneurial mindset and gain the skills you need to achieve your goals, whether that is innovating within your existing role, starting your own business, or making a broader social impact.

Gone are the times when instructors could give students canned examples in the classroom. Students should be exposed to real problems, (where) they are engaged in finding a solution.

Dedicated to Your Success Beyond the Classroom

Mentorship opportunities at Babson aren’t just limited to the classroom. Take advantage of dozens of campus organizations, institutes, and programs that will not only give you the opportunity to learn from your peers, but also will help you find lifelong mentors among our passionate faculty.

Through Babson’s innovative curriculum, you’ll find experiential learning at the forefront of your graduate education. Courses such as the Management Consulting Field Experience connect you with organizations like Johnson & Johnson, Liberty Mutual, and Verizon, inviting you to pitch practical solutions to their real-life business challenges. You’ll gain practical knowledge as you work alongside your professors and outside organizations both in Boston and around the world. 

What I like about directing our experiential learning programs is, as somebody with several decades of experience in consulting, I get to share with the students some of the practical experiences and skills I gained, yet it’s never the same. Each client project and student team is different, and that variety makes for an interesting, engaging and more memorable experience for students and what they carry forward into their careers.

Assistant Professor of Practice, Faculty Co-Director of Experiential Learning
