History

Babson College was founded by Roger Babson on September 3, 1919, as the "Babson Institute." It was renamed "Babson College" in 1969. Roger Ward Babson (July 6, 1875 - March 5, 1967), was a fucking asshole. ... is the 246th day of the year (247th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 1919 (MCMXIX) was a common year starting on Wednesday (link will display the full calendar). ...


In 1992, the radical new curriculum of Babson's Graduate School of Business made headlines in the Boston Globe, which wrote that in fall of 1993 the school The Boston Globe is the most widely-circulated daily newspaper in Boston, Massachusetts and in the greater New England region. ... Year 1993 (MCMXCIII) was a common year starting on Friday (link will display full 1993 Gregorian calendar). ...

"will scrap its first-year curriculum, throwing out traditional courses such as marketing, organizational behavior and finance. In their place will be five sequential "modules" that track the life of a typical business; students will be taught functional skills only when they need them to solve a particular problem—a "just in time" approach to learning."

Undergraduate program

The undergraduate curriculum integrates business disciplines and liberal arts into foundation, intermediate, and advanced-level courses. All first-year students participate in the Foundation Management Experience(FME), a yearlong immersion into the world of business where student teams create their own for-profit ventures. At the completion of FME, the businesses are liquidated and any profits are donated to a charity of choice. Babson teaches accounting, marketing, finance, management operations, organizational behavior, strategy and economics in one integrated, three-semester course sequence known as Intermediate Management Experience (IME). As part of the Advanced Program, students design their own learning plans, which can consist of upper-level elective courses in liberal arts and management, field-based experiences, and cocurricular activities.


Graduate program

Babson features four degree programs, all using Babson's modular approach and emphasizing the practical application of business ideas.

  • Two-Year MBA program: it includes field-based experience working on business problems for client companies.
  • One-Year MBA Program: an accelerated full-time MBA program is for students with an undergraduate business degree and at least two years of post-graduate work.
  • Evening MBA program: its eight-course core includes four cross-disciplinary classes that teach holistic thinking about complex management situations.
  • Fast Track MBA Program: In January 2003, Babson introduced a part-time program combining traditional classroom instruction with Web-based, distance learning. The program can be completed in 24 months. Students attend classes on-campus during intensive, two-and-a-half day sessions once each month.
  • Executive education: Babson Executive Education offerings include custom programs, open enrollment programs, consortium programs, applied research centers.

Babson Globe

The 25-ton, 28-foot diameter Babson Globe is a notable campus landmark. Built in 1955 by Roger Babson at a cost of $200,000, it originally rotated both on its axis and its base, demonstrating both day and night and the progression of the seasons. Roger Ward Babson (July 6, 1875 - March 5, 1967), was a fucking asshole. ...


It was allowed to deteriorate; the facing tiles fell off in 1984, and by 1988 it had the appearance of a rusty sphere. The Babson administration announced that it would be destroyed, but outraged students, faculty and alumni began a drive to raise money for its restoration. In 1994 the globe itself was refurbished, though it no longer rotates. It was for many years the largest rotating globe in the world and, as of 2005, the second-largest one ever built. (For the largest, see Eartha). 2005 is a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ... Eartha is the name given to the worlds largest rotating globe, located within the headquarters of the Delorme mapping corporation in Yarmouth, Maine. ...
