Has anyone heard back from Babson? The decision notification was expected by mid December, but still nothing is out there.

Hello Tarun,

Recieved admission confirmation mail in December for R1.

For R2, results will be out in February, I guess.

Congrats! I got an admit to this program today as well. Do you have a strong preference as to 1 year or 2 year programs? What do you want to do post-graduation?

Congrats to you too! I do not have any strong inclination to a 1 year or 2 year programme. I just want to decrease the opportunity cost involved. If I choose Babson, then definitely my majors would be entrepreneurship

Re: Calling all Babson College MBA Applicants: (2020 Intake) Class of 2022 [#permalink]
Hi All!

Glad to find this thread. I was not too sure if there were many people applying to this school!! I am an Indian female candidate with 5 years of work experience in risk management domain.

I have a quick doubt. I need to decide between two schools and I am quite confused to be honest. Your views will be appreciated.

I have an admit to one year program at ISB and two year program at Babson (with full scholarship)

ISB
Pros- One year program, global ranking, job prospects
Cons- Lack of diversity and international exposure

Babson
Pros- International exposure, diverse class
Cons- 2-year, Job prospects after the MBA, school recognition in the US

I plan to work in the product development/consulting/risk management/insurance field after graduating.

I think this decision will depend on what you value -- and your gut will usually know what is right. If I were you, your con of "job prospects after the MBA" would concern me a lot personally. I am choosing Babson over higher-ranked schools in part because entrepreneurship is my goal. But if you're looking for name recognition, it matters where you want to be after graduation. I hope that helps at all! Feel free to message me if I can help further.

Hi athena18, I would recommend you post this in "Admitted: Which BSchool to Choose Forum" as well. That forum is frequently used to discuss such situations and MBA experts, current students regularly visit & participate in the discussions there. https://gmatclub.com/forum/admitted-whi ... hoose-192/

Re: Calling all Babson College MBA Applicants: (2020 Intake) Class of 2022 [#permalink]
Hi Everyone,
I received an admit with Scholarship for Babson 1 Year MBA program for class Intake Fall 2020.
I have some queries and would appreciate if someone could share their views on them.
1. Considering the ongoing Covid and Market Scenario, Would a 1 year MBA program would be too much of a risk? Should a 2 Year MBA be preferred in current situation.
2. I have an inclination towards switching my career from Energy Industry to Consulting. Is Babson a good brand for someone who is looking for a future role in consulting industry.
3. I understand Babson takes a lot of pride in incalculating entrepreneurship mentality in its Business Grad and I wouldn't mind learning and leaning towards starting my own firm someday. However seeing an immediate future post MBA , I would have a debt and would like to attain my financial freedom before I venture on to my Entrepreneurship journey. Hence a job post completion in New England region ( where my wife also works ) is something that I am targeting for.
4. Anyone had a chance to interact with current batch of Babson MBA grads and could gather some useful feedback for making a decision.
5. I also have an offer of admit in of the STEM masters in Business Analytics from UConn( No Scholarship) and Full Time MBA from Stevens Institute of Technology , NJ( Some Scholarship) . Considering the current available choices among Babson and these , What would you recommend ?

Hey Karnika!

I also received my admit last week. I have been able to connect with other students going to attend Babson this fall. I am still considering my options though.
