Arthur M. Blank School
The Blank School engages Babson community members and leads research to create entrepreneurial leaders.
Get involved in the community, build your network, have fun, and make an impact. There’s an organization for every passion at Babson: design thinking, marketing, analytics, soccer, mobility—the possibilities are as endless as your ideas.
Each group is initiated and pitched by students to the Graduate Student Council. Successful ideas become officially recognized graduate clubs and are run by a graduate student leadership team that is fully invested in the mission.

“I helped organize the Babson Entrepreneurship Forum and contributed to the speaker engagement team. I had the opportunity to communicate with a number of very successful entrepreneurs. It helped me develop my communication skills and gave me experience in reaching out to new people and introducing myself (something you learn to do a lot at Babson).”
