Babson College, the recognized world leader in entrepreneurship education, has appointed Dr. Agnieszka Kuzniarski Managing Director of Babson Dubai—the College’s newest global location.
“We are delighted to welcome Agnieszka Kuzniarski to Babson Dubai,” said Babson College President Kerry Healey. “Agnieszka’s leadership in business education in the U.A.E., coupled with her local understanding and entrepreneurial mindset, will help Babson to amplify our impact on international business and entrepreneurship education in Dubai.”
“I am excited to be a part of Babson’s first international expansion, especially because it is in Dubai,” said Kuzniarski. “This city’s entrepreneurial energy can be felt far and wide, and it truly feels like the perfect place for Babson. I look forward to the impact we will create locally, regionally, and beyond, as we broaden Babson’s reach, and support entrepreneurs of all kinds, across generations in this hotbed of activity that is the U.A.E.”
