Dominique Pidou

First female international student makes history at Babson

Dominique Pidou

For the third year in a row, a woman broke new ground at Babson in 1971. After seeing the school confer degrees upon its first female graduate and undergraduate students in 1969 and 1970 respectively, Dominique Pidou became the first female international student to graduate from Babson. Originally from Nogent Sur-Marne, a commune in the eastern suburbs of Paris, France, Dominique was a member of the Beta Gamma Scholarship Society and earned a spot on the Dean’s List. She earned her undergraduate degree as a member of the Class of 1971, and her Babson MBA a year later in 1972.
