Hi Cabel,

I don't think so. I was interviewed 10 days back and I asked the interviewer if they give admit call little early. Interviewer said that for full time mba program the decisions are released on (or almost) on the given deadline. So still waiting for the final results :)

Let me know if u get anything :wink:

Hi Anirudh,

sure will do that... By the way, i was just looking at the Fees (frankly i had'nt given it much thought at time of application). Man is this college expensive. I mean the 1st year tution is almost double to some other colleges i've been looking at.

rgds..

One must complete the research before applying to school. :lol: But talking in general, yes - the school fees and structure is little different from other b-schools. If you look closely the tuition fees for 2nd year is less - which compensates the higher fees for 1st year, totaling up to 100k (tuition fees). I would agree that it is expensive, but as Babson is ranked 1st in Entrepreneurship in world, i guess they try to maintain some level :-D
In addition, Babson is generous and provide several types of fellowships and scholarships..and I hope that we get one :)

In the letter it is mentioned that I will get details about scholarship in the mail package. I think nobody got scholarship details in the today's mail.

I have not got any aid, so program would cost me around $155k (approx 96 lakh). Apparently, wont be able to afford this program. I think I should negotiate with admission team to offer at least 20% scholarship. Any suggestions ?

Hi PiyushK

I am in same boat as you are in. Got admit :-D ...but scholarship is too less and fees is too high. :(
Though I was very-very-very excited about Babson, it appears that it would not be possible now for me to attend it. :cry:

Anyways, you can always write mail to AdCom about negotiating stuff. Few of my friends did not got any better reply, but couple did got positive reply from other schools.
So there is always a chance. And I would say take it.

The Babson MSM and how you become a consultant for a week!  [#permalink]

FROM Babson Admissions Blog: The Babson MSM and how you become a consultant for a week!
What is Babson’s Master of Science in Management in Entrepreneurial Leadership (MSM)? Quite simply, it’s a graduate program for those of you who are only getting ready to start their career and feel they need a stronger foundational business knowledge and leadership skills.

What happens to you as an MSM student? Now, that would take a really long post to explain! So I won’t go into detail about the four pillars – Create, Teach, Consult and Reflect. You can read about each of them here. Rather, I will give you a glimpse into the Consult portion and what happens when you hop on a plane and travel to Chile to be a consultant as our MSM students did last month.

In the words of Prof. Sebastian Fixon and Prof. Miguel Rivera:

“The consulting project in the MSM program is one of the pedagogical pillars of the program.  Embedded in the Strategy course, its goal is to create strong linkages between classroom discussions and real world problems. The course content provides the students with the necessary tools for their project work, which in turn provides a realistic background for students to apply the analysis tools and techniques learnt in class. The student teams’ on-site visits with the client-firm allow them to gather data first hand and develop an in-depth understanding of the firm’s challenges. While this won’t always be the case, in 2015, all client-firms were headquartered in Santiago, Chile, so the on-sited visits were scheduled during Spring Break week.  Combined with cultural activities to better understand the country’s background and the context in which the firms operate, the project provides a unique learning experience.”

Wondering what all this actually feels like? Well, a picture is worth a thousand words!

Bonus tip: So you read this entire blog post and scrolled through all the pictures. Thank you! If after all this, you would like to consider becoming an MSM student, here’s what you should know: 1) The person you should speak with is Jenene Romanucci, Senior Assistant Director of Graduate Admissions and she can be reached at jromanucci@babson.edu and 2) The next and final MSM application deadline is June 1.
