What exactly is a Blended Learning MBA?  [#permalink]

FROM Babson Admissions Blog: What exactly is a Blended Learning MBA?
Not too long ago there were two ‘types’ of MBAs: Full Time and Part Time.  Now prospective students have dozens of options to choose from:  Executive MBAs, Accelerated Programs, Online Programs, Evening Programs and even ‘Blended Learning Programs.’

But what exactly is a Blended Learning MBA?

Blended Learning Programs combine the best elements from all MBAs.  It offers the rigor of a Two Year MBA curriculum, the ability to continue a full time career while studying like Evening Programs, the accelerated completion time of Executive MBAs and the schedule flexibility that Online Programs provide their students – It’s simply the best.

Maybe I’m biased – being the product of a Blended Learning MBA Program – but who can argue that taking the best aspects of each program and rolling them all into the Babson Blended Learning MBA isn’t the way to go.  No matter if you’re a brain surgeon or social media marketing guru – you can find two days every two months to dedicate to in-person learning.  The seven weeks in between Face2Faces…you log-in to class room home, the office, or even from vacation.  The Blended Learning MBA allows busy professionals to gain the business skills that they need to advance in their careers without neglecting career and family.

Babson’s Blended Learning MBA in San Francisco is a 21 month cohort based program that begins each October.

For more information create and account on the Babson Bridge or reach out directly.

FROM Babson Admissions Blog: Announcing Summer Venture Program in San Francisco!
Image

This summer, we’re excited to launch Babson’s signature accelerator here at our San Francisco campus located in SoMa, the center of the start-up scene in SF. Within blocks of the campus are headquarters of some of the biggest names in tech, as well as a host of co-working spaces, accelerators, and VC firms, making San Francisco an ideal spot for budding Babson entrepreneurs.

Throughout the 10 week intensive experience, Summer Venture Program (SVP) teams are given key resources to get their business from a minimum viable product to a launched business. Teams will receive work space, advisors, and an opportunity to build a tight-knit community with like-minded entrepreneurs. The program offers a hands-on, experiential learning process for teams to accelerate and scale their startup.

“San Francisco is a perfect way to expand the Summer Venture Program, as it provides our students with access to the wealth of resources in Silicon Valley and expands the powerful SVP network,” said Blank Center Executive Director, Debi Kleiman. “We are thrilled to partner with the SF Campus team to bring more Babson entrepreneurship programming to the Bay Area.”

SVP San Francisco will run simultaneously with SVP main campus, sharing the recruitment process, speakers, faculty, and extending the important network that forms during the summer months via technology. The program starts in mid-May and ends with a Venture Showcase in early August where entrepreneurs will present their business to angel investors, industry innovators, and the Babson community.

Apply for Summer Venture Program now! Applications are open to both Babson students and alumni. Learn more by participating in an information session on February 11th via WebEx (meeting#: 736 408 060). We hope to see you in San Francisco!

Meet Babson Black MBA: Diversity in the Entertainment Industry  [#permalink]

FROM Babson Admissions Blog: Meet Babson Black MBA: Diversity in the Entertainment Industry
Image

My name is Mark Gagliardi (first on the left); I’m 26, a two year MBA student at Babson, and from Lynnfield, Massachusetts. I’m the VP of Finance for Babson Black MBA (BBMBA).

Before coming to school, I had been living in New York City and working for a Top-Tiered Broadway General Management Firm. I immersed myself in entertainment at all times. With anywhere between 30 and 40 new Broadway shows opening each year, I was able to see it all; every story was being told. In the entertainment community as of late, a big flag is being raised to the industry in regards to how they’re incorporating people of all ages, shapes, sizes, and colors. The New York Times recently posted back in September an article of how we as a Broadway community have FINALLY started catching up to incorporating more ethnicities and diversity as a whole. We are now not just hiring the “token” ethnic member of the cast; we are making the minority into the majority. With various shows like “The Color Purple,” “On Your Feet!,” “Allegiance,” and “Hamilton” popping up this season, we are continuing the tradition of theater, but now with more faces, more color, more shapes and sizes. We are opening up more pathways for Black, Latin, and Asian actors to tell their story.

Now cut to recent news. If you have flipped on the television, or opened up a laptop, you have seen the chaos regarding another white-wash of nominations for the Oscars. These nominees, although talented and wonderful and deserving, are all the same color. There has been no inclusion of diversity in any of the major nominees. At this point in time, we have to ask ourselves, what went wrong? We had so many mixed and beautiful casts for various Movies and TV Shows, so where is there nomination? Who forgot them? Why were they forgotten? Why isn’t there enough space for them?

Most importantly, another question we ask is, Why has this torn people apart? If you have watched the snippets of interviews on FOX or Huffington Post, actresses like Janet Hubert, Gabrielle Union, and Stacey Dash are against each other and their opinions of how the Black Community should be portrayed. Stacey Dash in specific has obtained major backlash from the community because she believes the Black community needs to get rid of media like BET and the BET Awards. She clearly does not have her priorities straight. Call me a conspiracy theorist, but because FOX is paying her, and FOX and VIACOM are competing TV network conglomerates, she was told to say things like that. Does she mean it? Who knows. They were terrible statements made, to BET, to her friends, to her fans, and to her family. She shut down her whole community. What was she thinking? Where was her head in that moment? How quickly she forgets that before she was getting paid by FOX, she too was getting paid by BET. How quickly loyalties have changed….

As a member of BBMBA, this is a constant reminder that there is work to be done in order to tell everyone’s story. There is more than just one perspective. There are many perspectives. Whether we are in the entertainment industry, at Babson, or wherever, we are here to help make sure every story is told and accounted for, especially to those who fall silent. In this case, Silence is not Golden.

Meet Babson Black MBA: African American Women ‘the Fastest-Growing Gro  [#permalink]

FROM Babson Admissions Blog: Meet Babson Black MBA: African American Women ‘the Fastest-Growing Group of Entrepreneurs in America’
Image

Hello! My name is Jennifer Pierre (second from the right) and I am the VP of Marketing for the Babson Black MBA Association. I am currently a one-year student in the Masters of Science in Entrepreneurial Leadership (MSEL) program. I am a Haitian-American Floridian who has been living in Miami for the past four years. I came to Babson straight from undergrad at the University of Miami where I studied Entrepreneurship and Marketing. While in Miami, I gained experience in the digital marketing and social media functions of several marketing and advertising companies. Over time, I gained a newfound appreciation for how influential representation is. My passion developed into the intersection of entrepreneurship, race, and social change; while in undergrad, I founded several startups that promoted diversity in the fields of fashion and media. I am currently working on expanding my reach into the toy industry through the help of several Babson resources.

As a first generation immigrant and college student, the value of education has been instilled in me since childhood. Although it is a privilege to be among other students at higher education institutions, being a double minority is always at the back of my mind and an undeniable reality in the world of academia. While I applaud the intentional efforts of schools to be diverse, I have come to found that there is still room for growth in realm of the everyday classroom. From professors with diverse backgrounds to business cases that highlight minority-owned companies, the incorporation of these strides can translate into profound results. This became strikingly apparent to me when I read an article by Fortune Magazine highlighting the fastest group of entrepreneurs in America. Imagine my surprise and delight when I discovered that African American women own more than 30% of all businesses in America, translating into more than 9 million firms. More than any other moment in history, black women-owned business increased 322 percent in less than 20 years. As an aspiring entrepreneur, I can only look at these statistics and use them as fuel to continue to use my unique passions and skills to leave my mark. The Babson Black MBA Association at the number one school for Entrepreneurship seems to be the best place to start.

Hi friends,

i have been receiving alot of messages with respect to interview. So I thought it will be a good idea to post the questions and my experience on this thread.

The questions were fairly general and standard one's.

Introduce urself, shrt term long term goals, why mba , why now, why babson, strengths, weakness, apart from babson to which other schools are u applying(since i applied in august itself and babson was the first school i applied to so i was not asked the follow up question that is if u get an admit from all then which one will u choose. Back ur answr with solid reason). Why should we select u/how are you different from other applicants. Then i was given time to ask my questions.
I would also suggest u shall prepare following question.
Any ethical dilemma, if yr goals don't materialize what alternative career path will u take, time when u failed and your learning from this expernc, team experience, what kind of leader u r, how will ur peers describe u,
Just relax and b urself. Interview was very conversational and my interviewer was very friendly. Duration was arnd 25 mins.
I will also recommend practicing as much as u can. dress should be formal, background should not be distractive and internet speed should be good.

Hope this helps. Feel free to contact if u still face any problem with any part of the application process.

All the best.

Regards

May the Force Be With You or the Optional MBA Essay Revisited  [#permalink]

FROM Babson Admissions Blog: May the Force Be With You or the Optional MBA Essay Revisited
Greetings from the Babson Wellesley campus! This is a big week for all Round 2 full time applicants – we will release admissions decisions on Friday! So much work went into assessing all Round 2 applicants and it was amazing to see the quality of the candidates. It makes us all so excited about our incoming One-Year MBA, Two-Year MBA and MSEL classes this summer.

We also had Monday off in celebration of President’s day so I finally went to the movies and saw The Force Awakens. I feel like I can write an entire blog post just about that but I need to stay on topic – the optional essay!

So what is the deal with the optional essay? Everyone talks about it and no one knows exactly how to deal with it. My predecessor and great friend wrote about it on this very blog a few years ago and her advice is still solid.

Here are my additional five tips:

  • Read about Babson’s Entrepreneurial Thought and Action® (ET&A). Yes, I do mean that this is a good first step when you are considering whether or not to submit an optional essay that explains a career gap, an unusual tack in your professional path or a not-so -stellar GPA or test score. ET&A will help you understand the abilities we look for in a candidate. And my advice for the optional essay aligns with the ET&A principles.
  • Start With the Means at Hand. Know your story, know the future you aspire to and know how Babson fits into the picture. If the required application materials do not provide enough opportunity to get your story across – write an optional essay!
  • Take the First Step (and then take the next step). Tell us about your “shortcoming” but don’t make excuses. Explain the circumstances and address how you will ensure this is no longer a shortcoming. A quick example – your undergraduate GPA was low. Tell us why. Show us the steps you took – a post-undergraduate class where you performed really well, or a very strong GMAT score – that will alleviate the underlying concern about your academic ability.
  • Make a Difference. What we look for at Babson are candidates who will make a difference. We look for great new members of the Babson community, great ambassadors for the Babson brand and above all, entrepreneurial leaders who create economic and social value. Show how you will make a difference. Make it meaningful and credible.
  • Get Started. Write that optional essay (and the required ones, please) and submit your application. Don’t let worrying about one piece of your application overshadow the sum of your accomplishments and potential.
If you have questions about your specific concerns, email me at pwhitmore1@babson.edu and I will be happy to provide guidance. Later this week, I will write about Round 3. Stay tuned.

May the ET&A be with you!



We all have our own goals. Live yours.
