The Babson MBA Blended Learning program (formerly known as the Fast
Track MBA program) delivers the curriculum through a blend of
Web-based learning, virtual collaboration, and face-to-face sessions.
This approach allows students to make the most of their time, their
learning, their network, and their investment. Blended Learning
program cohorts-groups of students that form a tight-knit team
throughout the program- begin in March and September. Given the
structure of the program, students may participate in virtual sessions
and online collaboration from all around the world, and easily attend
face-to-face sessions from across the country. Face-to-face sessions
are available at two campus locations, Wellesley and San Francisco.
"The Financial Times Online MBA rankings recognize the ability of
Babson Blended Learning MBA alumni to succeed in an increasingly
global business environment," said Michael Cummings, faculty director
of the Babson Blended Learning MBA. "The students in this program are
tremendous, and we are pleased with this ranking reflecting their
success, especially when compared to other schools that also have a
portion of online teaching, coursework, and exams."
