Embark on Your Professional Adventure

The possible careers for undergraduates at Babson are endless.

And, the Undergraduate Center for Career Development (CCD) is here to help you transition from Babson to your next great opportunity, giving you the resources to explore all of your postgrad options, whether that’s entering the workforce at startups, non-profits, and Fortune 500 companies, continuing your education, launching an entrepreneurial venture, or bearing the torch for the next generation of your family business.

The Undergraduate Career Choice Is Yours

Your choices of undergraduate careers are infinite, but there is one guarantee: you will emerge from Babson with the entrepreneurial leadership skills that allow you to create a positive impact in any role, organization, or community from day one. With guidance from CCD’s experienced advisors, career fairs and events, and assistance in interview and resume preparation, you’ll be ready to dive into a career you feel passionate about.

A Campus Full of Connections

The best part of the Babson experience is the people—your professors, your advisors, your classmates, your peers, and our robust alumni network. As you partner with people across campus on projects and in class, you will gain professional insights and grow connections. Those touchpoints can help you find career paths you want to take as well as provide avenues for you to pursue them. Our faculty especially have expertise and networks that are beneficial to our students.

You also can participate in events, research, and networking with one of our nine Centers & Institutes. They provide a chance for you to dive deeper into a specific community or area of interest, such as supply chain management, family businesses, investing, and social innovation, and to meet mentors. Plus, we’re neighborly partners with Wellesley College and F.W. Olin College of Engineering and a stone’s throw from Boston, so you’re never lacking for inspiration.

Testimonial

The leadership skills I learned as a Frank & Eileen™ Center for Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership (F&E CWEL) Scholar and the connections I made as a WIN Lab founder have been vital components to the scalability of my business.

98.6%

of grads were employed, continuing education, or involved in volunteer, military, or service programs within six months of graduation.

(83% knowledge rate, Class of 2023)

That number isn’t a typo.

The hands-on approach of our curriculum, which begins your first year with Foundations of Management and Entrepreneurship (FME), and our unmatched career resources allow you to try out a bunch of things, so our students are invaluable to the workforce. You will have done so much, tried so many different entrepreneurial venues, and met so many people that you’ll be ready to tackle, well, anything.

You see the rewards of that hard work immediately. The average starting salary for Babson’s undergraduate Class of 2023 is $75,579, which is the highest in our history. The Class of 2023 starting salary is also almost 22% above the projected average for business majors from the National Association of Colleges and Employers.

A Lifelong Community of Support

The Babson experience isn’t over when you graduate. You will then join Babson’s extensive alumni network across major industries, from fashion to finance and all around the world (128 countries and counting). Our alums have each chosen a unique career path after college and many want to share that journey with you. Our global network is visible in all corners of the business world and beyond, and will serve as a resource for you throughout your career journey.

Our alumni know firsthand just how valuable a Babson education and mindset are to the world.

The greatest class I took was Sports Application of Mathematics with Professor Richard Cleary. We spoke to so many people in the sports industry. Having coursework that was specific to my interest of business analysts was really helpful.
