Babson College Key Developments

Babson College Plans New Facility Dedicated to Collaborative Student-Led Projects

Babson College has announced plans to build a new facility designed to host student-led projects involving product development and the launch of new enterprises. Babson invited Olin College faculty, academic leaders, students, and staff to be co-designers of the facility to enhance the potential for cross-campus collaboration. Students will be able to take their business and product ideas from concept through prototyping, doing everything from building small electronics to creating new clothing lines to developing the next generation of apps--all in a building intended to be run by the student entrepreneurs themselves. Strategically located on the western edge of the Babson campus and within view of Olin's Academic Center, the 9,800-square-foot multiuse facility will combine programming, prototyping, and maker spaces with flexible classrooms that will be available to students enrolled at both institutions. The new building will feature "messy" spaces in which students can work on, and house, projects for long periods of time, offering them the ability to fully realize their ideas and take full advantage of the facility's many resources. Students can look forward to the use of modern technologies and tools, including 3D printers, large-format printers, and laser cutters, as well as other industry-specific equipment, such as sewing machines, soldering equipment, and computer boards. The Weissman Foundry will also be home to a kitchen that will be used for cooking demonstrations and events, in addition to flexible office space, a conference room, and more.

Babson College Announces New Master of Science in Business Analytics Program

Babson College has introduced a new part-time Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA) program, and will begin enrolling students for the fall of 2017. The MSBA will offer a flexible program featuring face-to-face and online sessions. It has been specifically designed to prepare students to be the bridge between data and action. In as little as 18 months, students will become experts in the latest analytic techniques, obtaining the ability to interpret data for any organization. More importantly, students will develop collaboration and communication skills to help effectively convey the value of such information. The program's curriculum will go beyond IT and statistics, applying an interdisciplinary approach to ensure the development of critical technical skills and creative thinking to solve broader business and social issues. Plus, students will reinforce what is learned in the classroom through a real-world consulting project for an outside organization.
