The age-old dilemma for academia—how best to teach—really is about how best to learn. To innovate, business schools must accept and embrace change in their management education pedagogies, without losing sight of their distinctive methods and traditions. A two-session program, the Global Colloquium on Participant–Centered Learning (GloColl) seeks to build a global community of faculty members who are committed to participant-centered learning through innovative teaching and course design. Developed by Harvard Business School (HBS) senior faculty members, this invitation-only program will help you improve your effectiveness as a management educator.

Program Announcement

Please note this is an invitation-only program with select partner institutions.

Admissions

Please submit your application at least four weeks before the program start date. Since qualified candidates are admitted on a rolling, space-available basis, early application is encouraged. Admission is selective and based on professional achievement and organizational responsibility. Although there are no formal educational requirements, proficiency in written and spoken English is essential. Because Executive Education programs enhance the leadership capacity of the participants as well as their organizations, HBS expects the full commitment of both. While participants are attending a program, sponsoring organizations agree to relieve them of their work responsibilities so that they can fully focus on the learning experience.
