We want to be the preeminent institution in the world for Entrepreneurial Thought & Action®—and known for it. We want to expand the notion of entrepreneurship to embrace and celebrate entrepreneurs of all kinds. We want to put the power of entrepreneurship as a force for economic and social value creation in as many hands in the world as we can.
Trust, respect, and civility bring out the best in people. We respect and behave ethically toward each other and our external partners. We practice social and civic responsibility in the greater communities to which we belong.
We value our membership in a lifelong community that is broadly diverse. We believe that differences make Babson a richer community and provide the necessary contexts for shared accomplishment. We welcome and value people and their perspectives and respect the interests of all of the members of the community.
We have a long-standing commitment to an institutional culture that fosters creativity, risk-taking, continuous improvement, leadership, and an entrepreneurial spirit. We encourage people to take the initiative and make a difference.
Our commitment to cross-disciplinary collaboration and to working closely with students defines the practices of the faculty, administration, staff and who work on the campus of Babson College. Together with our alumni, and with our external partners, we create a learning and working experience that is greater than the sum of its parts.
Babson College is committed to excellence. Ours is a community in which all members can achieve their personal best. We seek to support each other thoughtfully for continuous growth and development.
