University Chancellor Emeritus Stephen Spinelli Jr., PhD, has been appointed the 14th president of Babson College. Before joining Philadelphia University in 2007, Dr. Spinelli held several leadership positions at Babson.
“It is a perfect fit for Babson to recruit him to return to the institution where he first made such a significant impact in entrepreneurship, global management and more,” said Stephen Klasko, MD, MBA, president of Thomas Jefferson University. “As a visionary, with the wisdom and guts to take the bold steps to ensure that higher education delivers real-world experiences and the training students need to compete in the 21st century, Dr. Spinelli is answering a call that is part of his DNA. Those who know him well, also know that he doesn’t stand still for too long. That is what has and will continue to make him so successful.”
