### Babson University: 31-Year Reign as Top MBA Program for Entrepreneurs

For many years, Babson College has been at the forefront of entrepreneurship education, leading the way in innovation and demonstrating the increasing demand for entrepreneurial skills in both business and higher education.

This ongoing commitment to innovating entrepreneurship education has once again been validated with Babson College securing the top spot in the rankings by U.S. News & World Report for the 31st consecutive year.

President Stephen Spinelli Jr. MBA’92, PhD, expressed, “This recognition reaffirms Babson’s position as a global leader in business and entrepreneurship education, showcasing our unwavering dedication to fostering entrepreneurship within our community.”

When the rankings were first introduced, there were doubts about whether entrepreneurship could be effectively taught, with many believing it to be an innate trait rather than a learnable skill. However, Babson College took action to prove otherwise, emphasizing not only the teachability but the necessity of entrepreneurship education.

Babson’s recognition extends beyond the domestic front, with a tie for the 22nd position in the Best International MBA Programs rankings by U.S. News & World Report, highlighting the increasing global impact of Babson’s MBA programs. These accolades further underscore the value of a Babson education, building upon previous recognitions such as being named the top undergraduate school for entrepreneurship by U.S. News & World Report for the 27th consecutive time and receiving accolades from The Wall Street Journal.

Continuously striving for innovation, the F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business attributes its enduring success to a collective entrepreneurial spirit that drives the evolution of its MBA programs to meet the evolving needs of students and the current landscape.

Sebastian Fixson, the Marla M. Capozzi MBA’96 Term Chair in Design Thinking, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and associate dean of graduate programs and innovation, emphasized the pervasive culture of innovation within the graduate school, where faculty, staff, and students alike are actively engaged in redefining and enhancing the educational experience. The curriculum is continuously refreshed to incorporate emerging themes such as digitalization, sustainability, and growth and renewal, ensuring that students are equipped with the skills required to tackle contemporary challenges.

As the premier institution for entrepreneurship education, Babson remains at the forefront of preparing students to navigate a rapidly changing world, fostering a mindset that encourages empathy, innovation, and impactful problem-solving.

The outcomes speak for themselves, with Babson MBA graduates in high demand, excelling in various industries and commanding competitive salaries. The commitment to producing entrepreneurial leaders who drive positive change globally is evident in the success and impact of Babson graduates across diverse sectors.

Maintaining the No. 1 ranking for entrepreneurship MBA programs for over three decades is a significant achievement that motivates Babson College to continue pushing boundaries and setting new standards in entrepreneurship education.
