Statement Relating to Institutional Engagement in Saudi Arabia 10/25/18(return to previous page)

Educating entrepreneurial leaders who create great economic and social value – everywhere, is Babson’s mission. We believe entrepreneurship education is an unalloyed good to help people everywhere create a better future.  For many years, we have worked at an institutional-level with various entities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to provide and facilitate transformational educational opportunities.

Through Babson Global, Babson Executive Education and the Babson Global Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership, we have delivered programs, research and more to support aspiring entrepreneurs, entrepreneurship educators and business leaders. One of our largest projects has been helping to establish and launch the Kingdom’s first co-ed, entrepreneurship-focused MBA program, in which men and women both teach and study together, at the Mohammad bin Salman College for Business and Entrepreneurship in the King Abdullah Economic City. This transformational program is managed by Babson Global.

At this time, we are monitoring events closely and gathering input from our community regarding potential paths forward. We are committed to ensuring that the College’s activities and affiliations remain aligned with our core values and supportive of our institutional mission and global educational goals.
