Just Business? has been a semester-long guided discussion exploring a range of challenges that corporations face in a globalized world. Lead faculty members from Babson, Olin and Wellesley Colleges have invoked cross-disciplinary conversations across the three schools. Students chosen to participate became Just Business? Fellows, actively participating in discussions and working in teams to create capstone projects.

Now it’s your turn. The communities of Babson, Olin and Wellesley Colleges as well as the general public are invited to our April 27th summit. Deborah Leipziger, a leader in the field of corporate responsibility, will be the summit keynote. Just Business? faculty will form a panel, Fellows will present documentary films, and a tapas lunch will provide an opportunity for the community to network around this important topic.
