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. Because the faculty who lead your classes are often the case authors, you'll get an insider's perspective that you can't find anywhere else in the world.
Our faculty is renowned for its ability to draw upon real-world insights and expertise to engage you in activities that expand your leadership abilities. You will emerge with practical business knowledge that you can apply to your daily challenges as soon as you return to your organization.
Ongoing Opportunities for Living and Learning
On average, you'll attend three to four different classes a day, for a total of about six hours of class time (schedules vary). To prepare, you'll work through problems with your peers. Whether in a study group, living group, or other scenario, the opportunities for collaboration are endless. These interactions aren't limited to discussing cases—they often spark debates about the very challenges you're dealing with back at work.

The i-lab fosters team-based, entrepreneurial activities among students, faculty, entrepreneurs, and members of the Boston–Cambridge community. All Harvard students are welcome to use the i-lab to nurture a big idea for real-world execution, for example, or to simply attend a workshop in an area of interest.
