Degree: MBA in Finance
Graduation Year: 2018

The Babson MBA program is a wonderful place to come to if you already have a very good sense of what you want to do but not for serious career changers. Lacking in students of color and/or LGBT students. In terms of career services, the office is helpful but the graduate school does not have much clout with employers. In the 1 year MBA program core, some professors are terrible but others are wonderful- it could well be that good professors dont work during the summer. During the normal course of the semester, the classes are fun and relaxed. Nothing too heavy duty!

It was an experience that kept me out of my comfort zone. It was challenging but an excellent growing experience.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

The best part of any graduate program is the networking opportunity. The opportunity is vast and includes your peers, faculty and previous alums. I thought my experience would only grow from what I learned from my professors. I quickly learned that I would value my peers insights and expertise as much as my professor's. I truly value the diversity and community at Babson. Like most, the work-life and school balance can be challenging. On the other hand, you can be a better well rounded individual. Not only that, but it prepares you for what is yet to come in your career and life . I am not sure it can ever be mastered but a good balance is essential in most working professional's career.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

I've recently initiated my pursuit for an MBA at the Babson F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business - Blended learning program. The program is a mix of online and face to face meetings on campus. This is a great program for working professionals who would still like to get an on campus experience. Students are assigned into cohorts, so it creates a great opportunity to develop strong relationships and build out networks. It is a very well regarded business school for curriculum, teaching quality, and consistently ranks #1 in the Entrepreneurship field of study. The school also has excellent career services, exceptional alumni network across the world. As of the current year, this is one of the most highly ranked 'online' category programs by financial times and was ranked the #1 program for salary increase after graduation. As for the cons, there is very little financial assistance provided by the school for the MBA Blended Learning Program, only a one time merit scholarship in the amount of $5000 is available. The cost of the program is on the higher end, approx $80,000 + cost of travel & course material expenses. It is, however, in line with the cost of most highly regarded private business school names in the top 100 MBA programs and most importantly, it is an investment that will pay off.

Degree: Entrepreneurship
Graduation Year: 2015

I am excited to begin and participate in the mixing and matching of cultures and intellects and perspectives that occurs on the campus of the college. In terms of cons - the cost of attending and being a part of that hodge-podge is quite exorbitant and any and all help to supplement my loans and aid is most welcomed.
