“With its expertise in developing entrepreneurial leaders, Babson is the ideal executive education partner for Penn Mutual. We are a large, well-established company with roots that date back more than 165 years. However, we see entrepreneurial thinking and action as the fuel for our organization’s future growth and Babson is playing a pivotal role in driving this evolution.”
Penn Mutual Life helps individuals and families do more in life by creating solutions that deliver the complete value of life insurance across life’s stages, complemented by annuities and investment products. Since Penn Mutual has a large network of financial professionals who manage their own practices, the company recognized an opportunity to develop the mindset and knowledge of these key representatives to that of business owners and leaders of organizations who capitalize on their firm’s significant growth potential. The company turned to Babson Executive Education (BEE) for help with this transformational leadership development initiative. BEE designed and is delivering a blended program that includes a mix of in-person and online learning modules on topics including Entrepreneurial Thought and Action®, talent growth in the practice, business models, leadership, and setting a strategic growth direction for the future. Participants bring their own objectives and challenges to the classroom and a key component of the program involves developing action plans to support the growth of their businesses.
