What Students Are Saying

4.54 Average Rating
Courses can be very challenging and may require lots of hours of work outside of class. Many classes also require group work so students can learn to work as a team, like for projects in the real world.
Anonymous from California
very high and different from standard college practice of lecture and exam. there are many projects and high student involvement.
Michelle from Towaco, NJ
GREAT FUN, LOTS OF PROECT WORK, YOU NEED TO BE VERY HARD WORKING. A LOT OF HOME WORK, ASSIGNMENTS...
Shruti from India
Highly collaborative, project-based learning environment. Failure is inevitable, but you're judged on your process and not the outcome. Classes can be taken at Babson (next door) and Wellesley (a couple miles away).
