Undergraduate Outcomes for a Global World

The undergraduate outcomes for our students don’t lie. When you leave Babson, you emerge as a top candidate in the eyes of employers from all areas of today’s global economy. This is thanks to the strong business foundations, hands-on projects, institutional support and resources, and real-world experience you will have under your belt.

Our Undergraduate ROI Numbers Don’t Lie

But, don’t take our word for it. The success of our over 44,000 alumni speaks for itself. The Class of 2023 undergraduate employment stats, not to mention the average starting salary for our college graduates, show just how ahead of the pack our students are.

Additionally, we pride ourselves on having one of the highest graduation and retention rates in higher education. Our four- and six-year undergraduate graduation rates (94%) and undergraduate first-to-second year retention rate (95%) are higher than the reported national average (62%) from the National Student Clearinghouse. These numbers are a testament to our curriculum, extracurricular opportunities, and resources for physical and mental health, as well as career success.

When I think about my career, I think about two courses: Foundations of Management and Organizational Behavior. I’ve realized that while the work I do is important, so is how you work with people.
