L&C Partners With Babson College
Members of the Lewis & Clark community can now benefit from streamlined admission to graduate programs at Babson College, a recognized leader in entrepreneurship education. L&C students—along with alumni, faculty, and staff—can participate in a number of 4+1 programs to earn one-year master’s degrees in the fields of management, finance, and business administration. They can also bypass Babson’s regular application process with a waived application fee, attend special information sessions, and receive at least a $10,000 scholarship upon acceptance, among other benefits.
“Babson ranks number one in entrepreneurship education—and has for over two decades—so they are the gold standard,” says Professor of Psychology Brian Detweiler-Bedell, who also serves as director of the Bates Center. “Their approach has strong liberal arts components, emphasizing the unique mindset and systematic practice of entrepreneurship. It’s been a model for our own program’s development.”
In addition to the 4+1 program, Lewis & Clark is a member of the Babson Collaborative for Entrepreneurship Education, which connects the college to a network of nearly 30 international institutions with entrepreneurship offerings. “Babson’s graduate programs are for those who loved what they learned at Lewis & Clark and want to go deeper,” says Detweiler-Bedell.
