F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business – Babson College San Francisco - Blended Learning MBA

Babson College Blended Learning MBA Program Structure

The Babson College Blended Learning MBA program at the F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business is geared towards students who wish to complete their MBA while remaining employed on a full-time basis. Students may begin the 21-month program in March or September. The program employs both in-person class time as well as online courses, and classes are offered in Wellesley, MA, and San Francisco. Approximately every seven weeks, students must complete an intensive, in-person session of class time spanning from Friday to Saturday, and the online portion of MBA coursework totals about 20 hours each week.


For Babson College Blended Learning MBA students, two required residency weeks occur at the start and middle of the program on the main campus in Wellesley. The core curriculum is divided into seven parts and 14 courses, including Entrepreneurship and Opportunity, Financial Reporting, Data Models and Decisions, Law, Marketing, Global Connections Through Technology and Measuring and Managing Strategic Performance. Several Signature Learning Experiences (SLEs) are incorporated into the core curriculum, allowing students to apply the knowledge they have gained from courses in real-life business scenarios.

Babson students complete the rest of the Blended Learning curriculum through electives, with two electives taken over two seven-week periods. Traditional electives are offered through the accounting and law, finance, economics, technology, operations and information management, entrepreneurship, marketing and management departments. Non-traditional electives consist of study abroad opportunities, research and team projects. Students may take courses abroad through Babson or a partner school, conduct research or participate in the Management Consulting Field Experience (MCFE) or Joint Management Consulting Field Experience (JMCFE). The Global Management Program also allows MBA candidates to work and study abroad.

The final requirement in the program is the Corporate Entrepreneurship Capstone course, for which students work in teams in order to develop and implement a business idea. Students may complete their capstone in conjunction with their full-time employers by selecting an appropriate project within their companies or complete a greenfield project.
