What is it about your MBA program that students love the most?  

Thinking like an entrepreneur to creatively solve business challenges.

Tell us about one new course that has recently been added to your curriculum in the last year.  How do you see this influencing the current cohort?

Babson has recently launched a part-time Masters of Science in Business Analytics program in San Francisco and Wellesley, and the curriculum goes beyond teaching IT and statistics to take an entrepreneurial approach to analytics. The launch of this program means even more high-level analytics courses will be offered at Babson, and Babson MBA students can take some of these Analytics courses as electives within their program to customize their degrees.

If you could invite a fictional character to lecture in one of your courses, who would it be and what course would he/she teach?  Why?

Fred and George Weasley – Entrepreneurship & Opportunity

The Weasley twins are entrepreneurial, creative and extremely adaptable, and they could teach a version of the Blended Learning San Francisco’s Entrepreneurship & Opportunity course, a foundational course within the MBA that teaches students how to approach problems creatively through an entrepreneurial mindset. The Weasleys were the proprietors of their own joke shop, and began working on their products while still at Hogwarts. But, during the second war with Voldemort, they had to pivot and began developing a line of Defense Against the Dark Arts products that were widely purchased by the Ministry of Magic for its staff. Entrepreneurs like the Weasleys need to be comfortable working in ambiguity and need to see opportunity where others do not, and Babson teaches students to develop this Entrepreneurial Mindset.
