Course Offerings

Are you considering an undergraduate short-term education abroad or away program?

In the 2021-2022 academic year, the Glavin Office of International Education is offering short-term programs in a variety of modalities (virtual and travel). Please note that the ability to travel will be dependent on global conditions and may be suspended due to the pandemic.

Pending the lifting of travel restrictions, you can participate in a domestic Elective Away in the spring semester or an international Elective Abroad summer session. Similar to the virtual experience, your Babson faculty member will design a one-of-a kind course that combines classroom instruction on the Babson campus with experiential learning opportunities in either a domestic or international location!

Work virtually on a consulting project focused on an international company’s business issue. Your team will also participate in preparatory academic sessions and engage with in-country speakers who will share expertise in local culture, economy, and historical & current business trends. Receive guidance from the faculty advisor, meet weekly with the client, conduct primary and secondary research, analyze the data collected, and virtually present the findings and recommendations to the client.
