Babson Wins Prestigious Award for Innovation in International Education

Babson College has been awarded a 2022 IIE Andrew Heiskell Award for Innovation in International Education in the category of Strategic Partnerships for the Babson Collaborative.

The award from the Institute of International Education (IIE) recognizes the most innovative and successful models for developing and expanding international education in practice today.

The Babson Collaborative for Entrepreneurship Education is a global institutional membership organization connecting universities around the world that are building and expanding their entrepreneurship ecosystems. The collaborative is a one-of-a-kind offering from the Babson Academy for the Advancement of Global Entrepreneurial Learning, the global provider of entrepreneurship education development for institutions and educators of all kinds.

Babson Collaborative, which now has 34 members from 21 countries, provides access to pedagogical best practices, expertise, and thought leadership from Babson College, and a network of like-minded global peers from other member institutions.

“There’s no better place to master the power of entrepreneurship education than through the Babson Collaborative,” said Amir Reza, dean of Babson Academy and dean of Global Education at the College. “Our efforts are motivated by our institution’s unified aim of creating a community of entrepreneurial leaders who are responsible and respectful citizens of the world.”

Babson, which shared the Strategic Partnerships award with Louisiana State University, was one of six institutions honored this year by the IIE with Heiskell Awards.
