Admissions

Please submit your application at least six 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. 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.
