In an interconnected economy, you need a global perspective to help your organization secure a competitive advantage. At HBS Executive Education, you'll learn from world-renowned faculty who are deeply engaged with companies across the globe. In 2014, 62 percent of the cases produced by HBS faculty were international. Moreover, HBS Global Research Centers in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Paris, California, Tokyo, Buenos Aires, São Paulo, and Istanbul, and four regional offices in Mexico City, Tel-Aviv, Dubai and Singapore, all work to support the ongoing development of new cases and research.
We structure our programs to ensure that participants interact closely with HBS faculty and other senior executives who represent diverse companies from around the world. Lectures, business simulations, and small group discussions foster collaboration with peers from various functions, industries, and cultural backgrounds. Campus life includes unique "living groups" that are carefully designed to encourage leadership development inside the classroom and beyond. As a result, you'll develop relationships that continue long after the program ends.
Programs are centered on the hallmark HBS case study method, and structured to ensure that you're an active participant in your leadership training, not just an observer. In fact, the faculty who lead your classes are often the case authors. That means that you'll get the latest case updates from an insider's perspective that you can't find anywhere else in the world.
As a member of the exclusive HBS alumni network, you'll be able to tap into a rich network of resources: more than 78,000 MBA and Executive Education alumni representing global leadership in over 160 countries, discounts on programs and publications, and more. HBS Executive Education offers four comprehensive leadership programs that grant alumni status.
At HBS Executive Education, your peers are just as integral to your learning experience as the faculty. You'll learn alongside talented business leaders who represent diverse functions, industries, and geographies. (In 2015, more than 67 percent of participants came from outside North America.) As past participants can attest, peer interaction offers invaluable global insight into the issues that are shaping future business leaders.
All HBS Executive Education courses are taught by full-time faculty from Harvard Business School. Our faculty's business expertise and field-based research create the enduring concepts that shape global best practices. Through prior corporate positions, board memberships, and consulting arrangements, they draw upon real-world experience to help you develop critical thinking and effective decision-making skills that you can bring back to your organization.
