Dr. Kerry Healey took office as President of Babson College in July 2013, following three decades of service in academia, government and humanitarian work in the United States and internationally.
Healey is the thirteenth president of Babson College and the first woman to hold that position. Under her leadership, Babson has strengthened its reputation as the recognized global leader in entrepreneurship education, consistently ranked the No. 1 undergraduate school and No. 1 MBA program for entrepreneurship, and No. 1 for international students.
