Babson College and Dar Al-Hekma College said they have signed a cooperation agreement designed to support women’s leadership and entrepreneurship.

Babson is the latest institution to partner with Dar Al-Hekma. Other partners include Columbia University, Lehigh University, and the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts, Babson said.

“I look forward to our collaboration,” Healey said in a statement. “Your graduates virtually glow with ambition and talent.”
