At Babson, we believe that entrepreneurship is applicable-and crucial-in organizations of all types and sizes, in established businesses as well as new ventures. Today, teams, divisions, and whole enterprises are striving to be more entrepreneurial. Furthermore, entrepreneurial thought and action are happening at all levels of an organization, where collaboration complements top-down leadership. Babson College was the first to understand that thinking and acting entrepreneurially is more than just an inclination. Rather, it can be taught. And we do it better than anyone.Babson invented the methodology for entrepreneurship education nearly half a century ago; today, Entrepreneurial Thought and Action® is still at the center of the Babson experience. In our collaborative community, through a blend of innovative, integrated curricular and co-curricular programs, our students experience the world as it is. Gaining both functional business and foundational liberal arts knowledge, they are shaped into leaders who will reshape the world. With an emphasis on Social, Environmental, Economic Responsibility, and Sustainability (SEERS) embedded into the experience, our students understand that economic and social value creation are not mutually exclusive, but instead integral to each other. The fundamental business skills and entrepreneurial mindset they cultivate at Babson equips them to make a difference here on campus and around the world.
