Babson to Launch Blended MBA Program

Beginning in March 2010, Babson College will launch a blended MBA program in San Francisco. The Fast Track MBA is an accelerated, part-time 24-month program tailored for professionals who want to advance their careers while earning their degree.

Pending approval by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), the program will offer a blend of periodic on-site meetings at the University of California, San Francisco‘s Mission Bay Conference Center with distance learning to accommodate busy work schedules. The team-based learning environment will have classmates who have an average of 14 years of work experience.

Babson MBA Fast Track Details
