The Blank School engages Babson community members and leads research to create entrepreneurial leaders.
Your Foundation as an Entrepreneurial Leader Starts Here
Anyone has the potential to lead—not just those in formal positions of power or authority. At Babson, you can develop the skills you need to positively and ethically influence individuals, teams, organizations, your community, or society at large.
3 Keys of Leadership
Purpose: Who do I need to be? What do I want to be?
Network: Who do I need to know? Who do I want to know?
Learning: What do I need to know and do? What do I want to know and do?
