The Boston campus was delighted to host two study-abroad groups this spring. In March, we had the pleasure of hosting the Sardinia Talent Up, a Babson Executive Education-sponsored program, for their final pitch presentations. Participants completed the eight-week program, spending their last week at Babson Boston for their final presentations. Sponsored by the government of the region of Sardinia in Italy, the program is part of a larger initiative aimed at growing a new generation of highly qualified local entrepreneurs to strengthen the region's entrepreneurial ecosystem.

We were also joined by the America for Bulgaria Foundation (ABF), which partnered with Babson to sponsor early- to mid-career Bulgarian professionals through Babson’s Accelerator for Growth, Innovation, and Entrepreneurial Leadership program (BAGILE). This spring's program was the first international application of the BAGILE program, which provides customizable lessons in leadership and entrepreneurship to public, private, and non-profit organizations. The participants spent three weeks in the United States honing their entrepreneurial leadership skills with Babson faculty. They covered topics that examined how entrepreneurship can build stronger communities and create social impact. During their stay, the group spent time in New York City, at Babson's main campus in Wellesley, and a week at the Babson Boston campus.
