Wellesley, Mass. is home to three institutions of higher education—Babson College, MassBay Community College, and Wellesley College.
Babson and Wellesley College are private schools, with the high tuition costs you might imagine. MassBay, on the other hand, is more reasonably priced, but doesn’t have all the amenities of the others, such as dormitories and a fancy reputation.
Tuition for the 2023-24 school year at the 4-year business school is $56,032. Once you add in housing, food, books and supplies, and personal expenses, the expected outlay is over $80k. This amount includes the use of a Babson-issued laptop, so all good.
About 50% of the college’s undergraduates receive financial aid.
