Arthur M. Blank School
The Blank School engages Babson community members and leads research to create entrepreneurial leaders.
As the leading educator in Entrepreneurship of All Kinds®, we shape the leaders our world needs most through real-world business experience and action-based learning.
Leveraging Babson’s extensive global network of employers, educators, friends, and alumni, Babson students engage in business opportunities that strengthen their abilities to envision and navigate change, understand global perspectives, and motivate teams in common purpose to create economic and social value.
The Shelby Cullom Davis Foundation provided an endowment to Babson College to encourage the application of entrepreneurship to nonprofit organizations. The foundation, established in 1962, is named for the late Shelby Cullom Davis, former United States ambassador to Switzerland, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and chairman of the oldest and largest company specializing in insurance securities.
The endowment funds the Shelby Cullom Davis Entrepreneurship Prizes. Cash awards are presented annually at Babson’s Family and Friends Weekend to the top undergraduate student teams that complete the most successful Management Consulting Field Experience (MCFE) for a nonprofit organization. The MCFE program provides an opportunity for students to implement business practices learned in the classroom in challenging, real-world consulting projects for a sponsor company. Student winners are selected based on their entrepreneurial thinking, teamwork, creativity, business skills, and dedication.
