“Babson College is a household name where companies look for alumni onboarding who can implement their firm’s own creative, innovative processes. This path is less costly, less risky, and less time consuming than the average merger and acquisition, outsourcing and offshoring. Entrepreneurship is therefore the ultimate solution for deflationary economic times. The Babson community can be the source of new jobs in the United States. This is the time of opportunity.”
