FUBU founder to speak at Babson

Prospective Babson MBA candidates are getting the chance to receive a wealth of entrepreneurial insights in a single day. On Friday, Oct. 28, 2011, Daymond John, creator of FUBU (For US By US) and host of ABC-TV’s “Shark Tank,” will be the guest speaker for a special full-day event, “Diversity of All Kinds,” at the F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business at Babson College. John is the new Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Babson.

“[We’re] thrilled to have a world class entrepreneur like Daymond John teach and inspire our students,” said Elizabeth Thornton, chief diversity officer at Babson College.

“Diversity of All Kinds” will give visiting candidates a unique opportunity to experience the Babson MBA program firsthand. The event is open to everyone, but African American, Hispanic American, Asian American and Native American MBA candidates are especially encouraged to attend.

In addition to participating in a case simulation with John, attendees will learn about Babson’s unique, hands-on curriculum from Dean Raghu Tadepalli. They’ll also get to meet and mingle with Babson’s world-class faculty, current students and alumni at a networking lunch. An admissions info session and presentations by Student Financial Services will help answer logistical questions about the admissions process. At the end of the day, students will come away with a better understanding of why Babson has been ranked No. 1 in entrepreneurship for 18 consecutive years by U.S. News and World Report.

Space is limited, so register early.
