Babcock MBA

Wake Forest’s Babcock School is highly ranked among the world’s leading graduate business schools. Its MBA program offers experiential, hands-on education. Personal interaction characterizes the learning environment, and the program emphasizes entrepreneurial thinking and teamwork. Class sizes provide greater opportunities to exchange ideas with faculty and classmates, hone communication skills and support analyses. Highlights include: summer international management study tours, to destinations in Asia, Europe and Latin America; laptop computers issued, with costs included in tuition; the Wake Forest Marketing Summit and MBA Marketing Case Competition; the Elevator Competition; and the Angell Center for Entrepreneurship.

Most Babcock courses rely heavily on the case method of instruction. In first-year class sections, students apply knowledge and problem-solving skills acquired in one class to situations in another. This culminates in a demanding three-day integrative exercise, in which first-year student teams are given a major, strategic organizational problem. The exercise tests the team’s ability to apply skills learned in the classroom to a complex business problem and to develop an effective cross-functional solution under time constraints. Because of the integrated curriculum, every student is required to take all first-year courses plus two electives. In the second year, students focus their studies in a Career Concentration in Consulting/General Management, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Marketing or Operations Management. An independently designed concentration is available by petition. The Management Consulting Practicum, which requires a team of students to serve as consultants to a business or nonprofit organization, is a second-year requirement for students with less than three years of work experience.
