Business School Overview

The Business School at Harvard University offers these departments and concentrations: accounting, arts administration, consulting, e-commerce, economics, entrepreneurship, finance, general management, health care administration, human resources management, international business, leadership, manufacturing and technology management, marketing, not-for-profit management, production/operations management, organizational behavior, portfolio management, public administration, public policy, real estate, sports business, supply chain management/logistics, quantitative analysis/statistics and operations research, tax, and technology. Its tuition is full-time: $56,175 per year. At graduation, 78.7 percent of graduates of the full-time program are employed.

Graduate students at Harvard Business School get a hands-on education through the case method, which poses true-to-life problems students must tackle in teams. The experiential learning extends to field study teams, in which small groups of students evaluate existing organizations, and immersion trips, intense weeks of study in another country over winter breaks.

HBS students can complete an MBA or doctoral degree, or can take executive education classes. (HBS graduates can take many executive education courses at a 30 percent discount.) HBS students can also enroll in joint degree programs in conjunction with Harvard Law School, Harvard Medical School, the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Graduate business school students may live on campus in Cambridge, Mass. Students can also research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

To supplement their education, students can assume leadership positions in more than 70 clubs. The annual HBS Show, a live musical theatre production put on by MBA students, adds some levity into the rigorous course schedule.

There are more than 100,000 graduates of HBS, scores of whom have gone on to lead major corporations. Some of the particularly notable alumni include James Dimon, president and CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co.; Meg Whitman, president and CEO of Hewlett-Packard; and Jeffrey Immelt, chairman and CEO of General Electric.
