Your Course of Study

A highly integrated and fully immersive program, AMP is structured to spark self-reflection, innovation, and collaboration on multiple levels. As economies, trends, global challenges, and world markets change, the AMP curriculum is refreshed and reframed. The HBS faculty builds upon each week's case studies and then synchronizes the content in week seven to illustrate how these ideas interconnect—all within the context of today's evolving global economy. An intensive one-day course may feature three case studies on the same company, with the CEO on hand to provide an insider's view.

Admissions

The Admissions Committee meets monthly, and admits qualified candidates on a rolling, space available basis. Early application is strongly encouraged. 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.
