Foundations of Management and Entrepreneurship (FME)

All Babson freshmen take FME, which is a course where you create and build an actual business and sell real products. It is a unique part about Babson that gives students a true sense of what it is like to be part of a business and deal with all the hardships of working in teams, making decisions, pivoting, and finding ways to succeed. They are given real money to work with and if your company doesn't survive, you get bought out by those businesses who are thriving.

Some of our freshmen's FME projects - boxers, AirEssence air fresheners, and HydroFlash to remind you to drink water throughout the day!

Study Abroad

Pictures from our juniors who recently studied abroad in Budapest, Florence, and Rome!

We highly encourage our players to study abroad in the spring of their junior year. It is an incredible opportunity that allows them to grow and develop away from Babson and come back senior year with a new sense of excitement and drive.
