Babson vs George Washington School of Business

Hi, please advise which is better Babson college vs George Washington School of Business when fees and location are not a constraint?

Both are good, and neither is Wharton, so will be viewed similarly - I’d pick on fit/feel.

Unusual comparison. Babson is a B school. That’s what kids study. Yes, they offer liberal arts classes but it’s not a traditional school. GW is traditional…majors. D1 sports but literally no campus. So if you want a campus this isn’t the place. And unless it changed they’ve got no dining halls. Oddest thing to me but the meal plan is based on local restaurants, stores, etc.

If I 100% knew I wanted business I’d choose Babson. But if someone wants that big city BU/NYU life then GW a fine choice. If I want an actual campus with grass…Babson.

I think it’s more than which is better. It’s more which is better for the student bcuz the day to day will be vastly different.

GW does have an undergrad business program.

Yes - but Babson is a business only school - that’s your major with then possible concentrations.

At GW, you can major in business, history, Korean, English, etc. - is all I meant - it’s a comprehensive university so you will have more diversity of thought and interests/perspectives, etc.

At Babson, while obviously students come from different backgrounds and will have diferent perspectives, everyone is focused on business - and they’re best known for entrepeneurship.

Good luck.
