Pre-Departure Orientation

Students planning to enroll in a Babson Elective Abroad course are required to:

  • Attend Pre-Departure Orientation
  • Attend faculty-led Pre-departure Academic Sessions 

Pre-Departure Orientation is an important way for the Glavin Office to:

  • Convey information that will be relevant to both pre-departure planning and time abroad, including intercultural concepts, career services pointers, logisitics, and health & safety.
  • Answer any logistical/travel questions.

Pre-departure Orientation Sessions will be offered at different times throughout the fall and spring semesters to accommodate student schedules.

NOTE:  Failure to attend the mandatory pre-departure orientation and submit all required supporting documents will jeopardize your ability to study abroad.

Students who have a scheduling conflict with the pre-departure orientation should contact their Elective Abroad Program Manager for additional instructions.
