"For a decade I dreamed of studying at Harvard—and it was an amazing, eye-opening opportunity that exceeded my expectations. During this one-week session I learned and applied principles that would have taken me much longer to acquire, understand, and implement while volunteering, working, or during my formal schooling. I now feel more confident and competent to effectively address my duties as the newly appointed chair of a rapidly growing multimillion-dollar facility."

"There is a huge level of energy around the people who are doing absolutely amazing things and allocating huge amounts of resources. These professionals are living out their passion to change the world, and you have the opportunity to interact with them on a very intimate level. I would encourage anyone to take the time, find the money, and meet the people who are actually making things happen."
