"Babson College (in Wellesley, Mass.) recently announced its plan to expand internationally, opening a new location in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, to offer graduate and executive education programs for working professionals across the region. The expansion is part of an effort to extend its reach and impact around the world, adding to its existing hubs in Wellesley and Boston, MA, San Francisco, and Miami

The Babson MBA – Dubai will be delivered through a blended online and face-to-face format, and will launch in January 2019. Babson Executive Education will be working with organizations in the region to develop customized programs in addition to offering specialized open enrollment programs at part of the Academy at Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).

Babson College President Kerry Healey said, 'At Babson, we believe that the success of entrepreneurs is critical to economic growth and sustainability around the world. By bringing Babson’s recognized leadership in entrepreneurship education to Dubai, we will support the U.A.E.’s long term economic development goals, make Entrepreneurial Thought & Action accessible to more people and places, and educate global leaders who will create great economic and social value everywhere.'''
