Every year, more than 10,000 executives from around the world come to the HBS Executive Education Complex. Also known as the Executive Education quad, it features four buildings, including the new Ruth Mulan Chu Chao Center, the first campus structure to be named after a woman and an American of Chinese descent.
The Chao Center is LEED certified. It incorporates several energy-efficient features that align with Harvard University’s sustainability standards, including a green roof, solar panels, air quality controls, and high-performance lighting, windows, and building materials.
From state-of-the-art classrooms to delicious dining options to living group accommodations, the Complex serves as a gateway between HBS and Executive Education, creating the ideal environment for living, learning, and networking.
On the HBS campus, you'll also enjoy easy access to many of Boston and Cambridge's most popular sites and attractions.
Our classrooms—located in Hawes Hall, McCollum Center, Tata Hall, and the Chao Center—are carefully engineered to encourage collaborative learning. To accommodate the lively case-centered discussions, each classroom features an amphitheater-seating design that gives you an unobstructed view of the boards, your professor, and your peers.
Located in the epicenter of the HBS Executive Education Complex, the Chao Center's new dining facilities can serve up to 520 participants at a time. The servery includes several display cooking areas that feature global food themes—each prominently located to foster interactions. In addition, the café provides a relaxed atmosphere for networking, discussion, and collaboration.
Every aspect of our accommodations enhances your collaborative learning experience—from the living group arrangements to the services and amenities. You will live with your peers in suites of six to eight single-occupancy rooms, each with a private bath and arranged around a common area. The suites are equipped with state-of-the-art multimedia equipment, and all bedrooms include telephone, voicemail, television, and a desktop computer equipped with high-speed Internet access. Standard in-room housekeeping is provided Monday–Saturday.
During your stay on campus, you'll have access to a wide range of services and amenities. If you play sports or wish to exercise, you'll have access to the extensive fitness and recreational sports facilities at Harvard Business School. Dry cleaning/laundry service is available Monday–Friday, and finished items are delivered directly to your door.
