A Babson undergraduate degree comes with a healthy focus on the liberal arts and sciences—and that sets us apart as a top undergraduate business school. You take courses to not only build out your fundamental business knowledge but to develop the critical thinking and communication skills the professional world demands. When you graduate, you have the tools to determine the impact technology, individuals, and businesses can have on society and the planet, as well as the drive to make concrete changes that better our world.
Sustainability sits at the forefront of our curriculum, too. In your second or third year, you will take Socio-Ecological Systems (a required undergraduate course), which dives into the role humans play in causing and fighting climate change and explores possible solutions to this growing crisis. The class is taught by a natural scientist and a social scientist, emphasizing how society and nature are interconnected and how we can address issues regarding water, natural disasters, food systems, and urban development.
