Founders Talk - 03 | Educating Entrepreneurial Global Citizens

Wednesday, 16th December, 2020 | 6:30 pm-7:30 pm IST

Dr. Amir Reza | Dean of the Babson Academy

Given today’s economic and social challenges, educating interculturally competent leaders who understand self and context is critical, but if we can combine global education with learning that promotes an entrepreneurial mindset we can empower the next generation of problem-solvers who can meet the grand challenges of the 21st century through thoughtful action.

Amir will also share what makes Babson unique and how students from FLAME University can benefit from the Babson Build program.
