The F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business at Babson College places a strong emphasis on entrepreneurialism and the global marketplace, which is reflected in the school’s learning goals of ethics, integration, teamwork, and entrepreneurial and innovative thinking. Graduate business students can work toward these goals via one of the school's four M.B.A. programs. Two full-time programs take place on the school’s campus in Babson Park, Mass., about 30 minutes from Boston. Part-time students with substantial professional experience can opt for the 21-month fast track program offered in either Babson Park or San Francisco, while students needing more flexibility in the schedule can choose the self-paced evening M.B.A. program.
Babson M.B.A. students gain real-world experience through the Babson Consulting Alliance program, a requirement for all two-year students, and hone their international business skills through the school’s Global Management program. Babson College also partners with universities, nonprofits, and governments across the world to promote global entrepreneurship.
Outside of academics, students at the Olin Graduate School of Business build camaraderie through volunteer events and 1980s-themed ski trips. The school’s proximity to Boston means students can easily tour the city’s historic areas or see one of the city's storied sports teams in action—Boston is home to the Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins, and Patriots— in their downtime. Notable Olin alumni include Stephen Spinelli Jr., cofounder of Jiffy Lube International; and Mir Ibrahim Rahman, cofounder and CEO of GEO TV Network, a prominent media organization in Pakistan.
