20th Anniversary - Cutler Center for Investments and Finance

The Stephen D. Cutler Center for Investments and Finance is committed to furthering Babson’s innovative and practical approach to finance education, creating a collaborative environment for faculty, industry practitioners, and students to learn from one another. Through experiential learning programs and state-of-the-art finance lab, students gain critical knowledge, valuable skills, and the power to lead outside of the classroom. Your gift supports critical components of these programs including technology, software and analytics, student seminars, competition fees, and faculty advisors.

 

State-of-the-art Finance Lab

In June 2019, we opened a new, expanded center in the Babson Commons. The location raises the visibility of finance at Babson and the increased square footage allows us to expand our curriculum and signature learning experiences that improve the marketability of our finance students.

The expanded facility includes 42 workstations equipped with Bloomberg, FactSet, Capital IQ, and other analytical tools used by industry professionals. The ability to host classes and seminars in this new space provides students with access to state-of-the-art resources that prepare them for successful careers in finance.

 

​"The practical equity research skills I learned at Babson gave me a competitive advantage during my job search. The real-world approach taken by the faculty and the resources offered by the Cutler Center are unmatched. Taken together, the program provided real insights into a career in investment management." - Lilia Chobanova MS'18

Experiential Learning Programs

Babson College believes students learn best through authentic experiences, hands-on learning, and practical application. The Cutler Center provides Babson students with unique opportunities to learn, build valuable skills, and lead outside of the classroom through the following experiential learning programs such as the Babson College Fund and the Babson Trading Program. 

"The Cutler Center sponsors the Babson College Fund (BCF), which was a life-changing program for me. It was through this program that I found my passion for investing. The experience in BCF helped me to better understand the financials markets, to network with program alumni and like-minded peers, and ultimately secure a job offer with Bridgewater Associates." -Yanchuan Cai '19
