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."
