Babson College is a small, private business institution located in Wellesley, MA. Babson offers a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, along with Masters degrees in Business Administration, Accounting, Management, and Finance. There are approximately 2,000 undergraduates—24% are international students. The Babson campus has a small-town setting, alongside Wellesley College and Olin College of Engineering. Modern buildings complement fields of green grass and plenty of parking.

Babson is best known for its entrepreneurship—ranked #1 for Entrepreneurship by U.S. News and World Report for the past 19 years. Another unique approach of Babson is the Foundation of Management and Entrepreneurship (FME): a year-long course for first year students. FME students are teamed up to begin and run their own business on a Babson loan.

Athletics are not a major part of the school, but most sports are available to students. About 10% of students participate in Greek Life and there are many student clubs and organizations available. All students are permitted to have cars on campus, and there are no classes on Friday.

Babson has a very focused curriculum and students considering this school should be certain that they want to major in business.
