The power of reverse innovation when people try different and innovative approaches to solving one of the most urgent problems facing our world. This is what Babson Global hopes to do with the Saudi campus – try new things that advance our own state of pedagogy.
King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC) will be the home of the new Babson Global Entrepreneurial Leadership Center opening in January 2015. The Center will be led by Dr. Ignacio De La Vega who until recently was running the Entrepreneurship Center in IE Madrid. The Saudi Center will begin activities designed to diffuse ideas about how to create entreprenurial leaders by working closely with other Saudi universities and other relevant organizations.
