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.
- 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.
2021–2022 Graduate Student Council
President: Tim Gornik
My name is Tim Gornik, from Slovenia, and I am the President of Graduate Student Council. I am in the 2-year MBA program, with a focus on Business Analytics and Machine Learning. After graduating from college I played professional golf all over the world for 6 years and came to Babson to transition into a career of Product Management in IT. My hobbies include any kind of sports, reading, watching TV shows and my pets.
Chief of Academic Affairs: Amelia Thomas
My name is Amelia Thomas and I'm the Chief of Academic Affairs on the Graduate Student Council and a two year MBA student. Being a Research Scientist taught me how to analyze patterns for opportunities and see microsuccesses as positive forward progress. Babson has been a great place to continue to expand my boundaries. I look forward to helping others push towards their goals using my position as Chief of Academic Affairs on the Graduate Student Council.
I could continue at length about myself, but I'd much rather hear about you and what you want to do here. Send me an email and let's chat!

My name is Rajeev Ranjan and I am the Chief of GSC Operations. I am a passionate, curious and fun-loving guy. At Babson, I am pursuing a full time MBA with STEM concentration in Business Analytics & Machine Learning. It has been a super enriching experience here. Before Babson I started my professional career as a Mechanical Engineer, and worked in different verticals of Oil & Gas sectors. I have always tried to serve my community and look forward to doing so in the coming year with my role on the GSC. Apart from academics, I love travelling and playing lawn tennis.
Chief of Graduate Student Life: Alexander Oubré
My name is Alexander Oubré, and I am a second year MBA student from Los Angeles, CA. An Audio Engineer and Record Producer by trade, after attending Loyola Marymount University I spent five years as an entrepreneur in the entertainment industry, serving as In-House Producer at record label startup OIM Records.
