Short Courses



  • On September 3, 1919, with an enrollment of 27 students, the Babson Institute held its first classes in the former home of Roger and Grace Babson on Abbott Road in Wellesley Hills.
  • From the beginning, Roger Babson set out to distinguish the Babson Institute from colleges offering instruction in business. The Institute provided intensive training in the fundamentals of production, finance, and distribution in just one academic year, rather than four.


  • The Babson curriculum is designed to inspire students and executives who have a passion for creating economic value while incorporating concerns for people and planet. Our vision began as a bold experiment that placed Entrepreneurial Thought and Action® at the core of the curriculum. 
  • Today, the world looks to Babson’s curriculum as the benchmark for an entrepreneurial course of study where students learn to be agile thinkers who create and capitalize on opportunities to make a difference.


Research, both theoretical and practitio​ner focused, is the cornerstone of scholarly activities. Faculty members each develop, in conjunction with their division chairperson, a program of scholarly activity that relates to individual, division, and College needs. Expectations are that faculty members develop a research pipeline, that is, continuous scholarly work with projects in various stages of completion.
