SKILLS, KNOWLEDGE, AND BABSON S COMMITMENT TO CAREER DEVELOPMENT OPEN UP A WORLD OF POSSIBILITIES. RETURN ON INVESTMENT AN EDUCATION OF EXCEPTIONAL VALUE, A REWARDING CAREER, AND A LIFELONG PROFESSIONAL NETWORK. YOU DEFINE YOUR FUTURE. WE HELP MAKE IT HAPPEN. BABSON COLLEGE PROVIDES A MORE AFFORDABLE AND VALUABLE EDUCATION ONE THAT WILL BENEFIT YOU NOW AND LONG AFTER YOU GRADUATE. At Babson College, we ask students to help us redefine entrepreneurship both in what is learned and what is accomplished with that knowledge. Applying the skills gained at Babson will ensure that graduates enjoy a career with impact. Our investment in financial aid makes it possible for students to come to Babson, take full advantage of the many opportunities here, graduate with manageable debt, and make their mark on the world. There are three things to consider in choosing a college and planning your career: You want the best college; you want an academic program that gives students what they need to launch a rewarding career; and you want experiences that will connect you with exceptional employers. We are committed to working with you so that Babson is affordable and helps you achieve your goals. By providing generous financial aid and extensive career development, Babson invites students into its extraordinary living and learning community and prepares them for the future. That s how we define ROI. A net price that makes a great education possible, and a net result that is everything you ever dreamed. From helping students attend Babson, to teaching them what they need to know, to opening doors when they leave here we re with them all the way.
