Babson College has appointed Carla Curiel ’05 as the new director of Babson Miami. The announcement coincides with the College’s 20th anniversary celebration of its Blended Learning MBA program, which has been offered in Miami since 2017.
Curiel is a serial entrepreneur, most recently as the co-founder and CEO of Lanugo Media, a family entertainment company focused on creating culturally relevant content that promotes diversity. She has remained closely connected to the Babson community since her graduation, serving as president and vice president of the SoFla Alumni Club, initiating WinLab’s arrival in Miami, and representing Babson in the White House’s Hispanic Heritage Celebration and 25th anniversary of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence.
“I am honored and excited to lead the Miami location into its next phase of growth,” Curiel said. “I look forward to continuing to empower entrepreneurial leaders who make a positive difference in this corner of the world.”
Babson established the Miami location in 2017 to contribute to the city’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and provide world-class business education to individuals and corporations. Curiel replaces Gustavo Trindade MBA’17, who is joining the College’s Finance team.
“It has been an incredible journey building Babson’s Miami location from scratch in these past six years,” Trindade said. “I am proud that we have brought a unique MBA to the market, touched hundreds of learners, and welcomed students from more than 15 countries in the Americas this past year.”
Introduced in 2003, Babson’s Blended Learning MBA program, an innovative hybrid program, was among the first to allow graduate students to balance work, family, and other commitments while earning their degree.
