Babson picks Kerry Healey as first female president

Former Massachusetts lieutenant governor Kerry Healey was named the next president of Babson College on Sunday night, making her the first woman to lead the college since it was founded nearly 100 years ago.

Healey said she hopes to turn the small business school in Wellesley into a global institution by forging relationships with colleges around the world, and to work to make undergraduate education more affordable and accessible.
