Social Impact in the Classroom
In addition to the Taylor Scholars, Babson provides a solid foundation for undergraduate students looking to actively and professionally pursue social impact causes.
All undergraduates take Socio-Ecological Systems (SES), one of our signature courses, which teaches students how to think in systems through learning about a part of nature (for example, water management, food systems, farming, and natural disasters) and their role in protecting and managing it. After taking SES, you have an understanding of integrated sustainability, and how people, communities, and businesses need to work together to preserve our planet.
In addition to SES, we offer a variety of courses in the liberal arts and sciences as well as in business and finance that introduce students to social impact concepts and initiatives. These include introduction to sustainability, social media etiquette, social impact across the globe, corporate social responsibility, and how to think entrepreneurially about social and environmental issues.
