What Students Are Saying

3.96 Average Rating
Babson College is a business school that teaches students to use entrepreneurship as a lifestyle. The curriculum is focused around business and liberal arts both of which are very helpful in becoming a very successful businessman or business woman. Students who attend Babson College are guaranteed to become critical thinkers, have a greater understanding of the business world and how to be a successful entrepreneur, as well as gain a drive for social innovation.
Kamisha from Brockton, MA
Babson College is a small business school in the suburbs of Boston. Its entrepreneurship program has been rated #1 in the country for something like 18 years in a row, and it was recently rated #1 for business overall in Money Magazine, so it is very much up-and-coming. The best part about Babson, in my opinion, is the energy of the campus--everyone is always doing something, and there is always tons going on.
