Hello all,

I have been admitted to BU and Babson for evening programs. My company is paying for school which is why I am attracted to the evening programs. I am also considering applying to BC. Does anyone have any advice as to which school I should choose? I live close to Boston.

Thank you for your help!

Depends on what you're looking to do with your MBA. I started Babson's Blended MBA last fall and there is definitely a focus on entrepreneurship. If you're looking to start your own company or join a startup I'd say Babson.

Glad to hear you are in the Blended learning program. I am not looking to start a business because I enjoy the company I work for. Eventually, I could see myself starting a company. I currently work for a Fortune 100 company. Do you think the entrepreneurial focus is non-applicable to working for a large corporation? Also, would managers within my company know what Babson is? I fear it has a lack of brand recognition.

I'd say a good 40-50% of my cohort currently work for large companies and are looking to stay there. We've covered innovation and intrapreneurship for those in large companies. If you're eventually looking to start a company I'd say you should consider Babson. Talking to both alumni and random people Babson has pretty good brand recognition with regards to entrepreneurship and a reputation churning out "street-smart" instead of "book-smart" MBAs... especially on the east coast. One of the things that most impressed me when I was evaluating schools was the number of faculty who have real-world experience (starting/leading companies or decades in management consulting).

Feel free to post any other questions!

If you are into entrepreneurship then Babson, otherwise BU. BU might be the best-ranked among the bunch.
