I appreciated the centers Babson offers to engage in learning outside the classroom; these helped me enhance both technical and soft skills. The Cutler Center offered Wall Street Prep training that refined my modeling skills, and the Institute for Family Entrepreneurship offered an intensive program for entrepreneurially focused students looking to collaborate and determine the next steps forward in their businesses.

I highly recommend people going to the centers for the events. I’ve gone to Institute for Family Entrepreneurship events, How 2 Tuesdays at the Blank Center, and Food Sol at the Institute for Social Innovation. They made my Babson experience well-rounded with great exercises by professors and industry experts.

I came in thinking I would go back to the fashion industry with a more managerial role and a finance focus. However, Babson introduced me to alternate investments through a chance to attend the WAVE conference in NYC. Now, I am interning in Private Equity this summer and hope to work in the industry post-graduation.

I think the Institute for Social Innovation provides some great networking events for aspiring entrepreneurs, as well as rocket pitches (Blank Center) to help you start thinking like an investor, and I really loved that experience. I am planning on visiting our amazing Foundry soon to take some photos in their mini-photo studio and classes in their workshops, as I love to make art as a hobby, and I saw they offered classes in 3D printing. Finally the Cutler Center has a Wall Street prep course I am interested in, to develop my skills with financial modeling, and I plan to take that in the spring.
