“Babson CCD was a massive help during my journey at Babson. I started early in the job-search process and regularly kept in touch with the CCD team. The meetings were not just about talking about companies or the interview process, it was also about understanding my weaknesses, my strengths, and industry expectations of an MBA candidate.”

“There are so many valuable experiences that have had a profound impact on me. For example, I, along with 19 others, went to Tanzania, Africa, for Global Experience, where I learned things that have forced me to challenge my principles and prior beliefs. I also found the LEAP project and strategy consulting projects extremely valuable learning experiences for when I create my own startups.”
Daniel A. Mercader MSEL'20
