A forum for student leaders from member colleges and universities, Babson Collaborative for Entrepreneurship Education (BCSN) has 32 member institutions from 21 countries. In one of our entrepreneurship education case studies, multiple BCSN students at UDD who helped rescue Fatema Jalaly from Afghanistan were past winners of the Babson Collaborative Global Student Challenge for their startups.Join the Babson Collaborative
The meaning of the Babson Collaborative Student Network is to literally collaborate with people from the network to build a better world, even if that means coordinating a rescue mission to evacuate them from danger.
Babson faculty member Zach Zacharakis shared the powerful methodology of Entrepreneurial Thought & Action® that stimulates student action with 41 educators in Japan in a virtual Global Symposia for Entrepreneurship Educators (Global SEE). Participants left the program understanding how to build an entrepreneurial mindset and how to apply ET&A in their courses.View Global SEE
“Entrepreneurial Mindshift for Educators was the perfect boost I needed to recharge my batteries. As an educator, I value the time I spend in the classroom but often worry my approaches or applications will feel stale. These sessions refreshed my perspectives.”

Babson College is playing an important role in helping Santander Universities develop, promote, and advance the type of entrepreneurship that will create a significant and lasting value around the world. Because Babson is an institution that leads with an innovative spirit and forward-thinking approach to real-world education, our partnership is sure to help students gain the skills needed to become tomorrow’s pioneering business leaders.
Babson Academy partnered with Santander Universities to design and deliver a high-impact, two-part program for students called Prepare to Launch. Bringing together student teams with startups in the incubation stage, the program taught them to leverage digital to prepare their venture to go to market.
After a competitive three-week introductory pre-program, winning teams moved on to a four-week advanced training in entrepreneurship. Participants built a network of global entrepreneurs, received mentoring from Babson faculty, and completed the program with investor-ready team pitches.
“As a girl, I was always convinced by society that I cannot start a business. … People think there aren’t lots of opportunities here, particularly for girls. Here comes the most impactful thing I learned from this program: creating opportunity. Now I believe, you do not always need to find or search for opportunities; sometimes you should create and design one. ”
