UNDERGRADUATE LEARNING GOALS AND DEGREE REQUIREMENTS

Babson embraces the principle that students learn and develop through their experiences across the campus, both in the classroom and throughout the community. This learning-outcomes approach develops specific skills and abilities that help prepare students for their professional life. Equally important, our curriculum aims to help students better understand themselves; recognize their place in and responsibility to the broader world community; and to develop an appreciation for diverse and divergent viewpoints. Through this approach, Babson strives to create a learning and living environment that encourages students to become mature and well-grounded individuals, and successful leaders in both their careers and their communities.

3. Entrepreneurial Thinking and Acting -​ Babson graduates can create, identify, assess, shape, and act on opportunities in a variety of contexts and organizations.

4. Global and Multicultural Perspectives -​ Babson graduates understand complex cultural contexts, and welcome and adapt to social, cultural, and intellectual diversity.

The core skills that make up the seven learning goals are strengthened and nurtured throughout students’ time at Babson, not only in the classroom, but also through field-based experiences and co-curricular activities. This holistic approach to learning helps cultivate multidimensional abilities; at Babson, students are not trained for one specific career, but provided an integrated education, which enables them to succeed after graduation at many levels.

Babson College has designed a three-tiered curricular structure, each of which features coursework from both management and liberal arts.

Degree Requirements for Students who Matriculated Prior to Fall 2013:

To be eligible for the Bachelor of Science degree, a student must:

● Satisfactorily complete a minimum of 126 credit hours of work;

● Earn a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0;

● Complete the content of 63 credits in liberal arts;

● Earn a minimum of 40 credits in advanced courses;

● Satisfactorily complete all specific degree requirements; and ● Not have any missing or incomplete grades.

The Foundation Program consists of 35 credits:

- 22 foundation liberal arts credits and 13 core management credits   

The Intermediate Program consists of 39 credits:

- 21 intermediate liberal arts credits and 18 core management credits

The Advanced Program consists of 52 credits:

- 20 advanced liberal arts credits, 16 credits of further advanced-level work, 12 credits of free elective, and a 4 credit capstone course

–  –  –

Though 126 credits is the minimum to graduate, students may take up to 156 credits. Students may earn those credits through classes at Babson College or through cross-registration, Babson-approved study abroad, and/or off-campus course work (up to 12 approved credits). Coursework taken prior to enrolling at Babson (including AP and transfer credit) does not count towards the maximum total credit.

Students may transfer a maximum of 63 credits towards their Babson degree. While enrolled at Babson, transfer students may take as many credits as needed to complete the requirements of the Babson curriculum. Once a student enrolls at Babson (by the May 1 Candidates’ Reply Date), the student must take all courses on campus, through a Babson-approved program (with an exception made for GAP students), or through the off-campus course evaluation process. Incoming transfer students may elect to enroll in classes at Babson during the summer or winter session immediately preceding their initial semester. Credits and grades for courses taken in a Babson summer or winter session will count toward degree requirements and students’ GPAs. ​student’s matriculation date A will not change regardless of enrollment in summer or winter session courses.

–  –  –

Any interruption in a student’s tenure may result in required courses no longer being available or only being available on a limited basis. If Babson no longer offers a required course, Babson College will make reasonable accommodations to provide a substitution. Reasonable accommodations may include enrollment in a course in the new curriculum, permission to take the course off campus for credit at the student's expense, independent study opportunities, and/or course substitution. Any student who experiences a voluntary or involuntary interruption in their tenure at Babson should make immediate contact with their Class Dean to ensure proper planning.

Students have three years from the original expected graduation date to complete their Babson degree (typically, a total of 7 years). Exceptions to this time frame must be approved by the Undergraduate School Dean, and are typically only granted for compelling circumstances or situations outside of the student’s control.

● Satisfactorily complete a minimum of 131 credit hours of work;
