Babson graduates are employed by such companies as Accenture, Apple, Google, Harvard Bioscience, Clearwater Analytics, Disney Resorts, Hasbro Inc., Syneos Health, Raytheon, and many more.

What drove me to join the Nerf team and Hasbro, in general, is their commitment to philanthropic endeavors, creative problem solving, and, of course, fun! I always knew I wanted to find myself at a company where I can express my creativity, and Hasbro has been the perfect place to do exactly that. Babson’s Graduate Center for Career Development played a large role in me landing my position at Hasbro.

I have been passionate about robotics since childhood and did my bachelor's and master's research related to this. Customers want to experience personalization. Our human-sized robots move around autonomously, engage with customers walking in, identify them through face recognition, and converse through cutting-edge technologies.

The Leading Entrepreneurship Action (LEAP) class had a tremendous impact on the work I do now. The ability to learn how to work on a team and communicate my ideas, while also taking in the ideas of others is an incredibly valuable skill that I use every day. Working with my classmates through the process of launching our own business challenged me in ways no other class did. The successes, the failures, the disagreements, and triumphs are all things that happen every day in the real business world. Being able to go through that before I started my professional career was incredible.

I am a problem solver, invested in doing social good through business, and my learning style is more interpersonal—I learn through conversations and action, and I like smaller class sizes. Babson was all this and more, it was the perfect fit for me. With courses focused on ‘experiential learning' and the emphasis on 'making a difference' through business resonated very strongly with me.

I had always been interested in consulting, and PwC was a dream come true. Babson Graduate Center for Career Development guided me a lot in my job search. I participated in networking events, career fairs, and different workshops that helped me build my brand and prepared me for the opportunities that followed. I learned that I had to think of myself as a brand, and just like any brand, I had to market myself. The way you market yourself decides the course of your future and sets you up for success.
