The world famous Harvard Business School features approximately 100 masters and doctoral programs. The degrees include eight full-time doctoral programs, over 80 executive education programs, a two-year MBA program, and joint degree MBA programs such as MD/MBA, and MBA/JD.
The business school is known for developing and using the Case Method to teach its students. The Case Method was introduced in business education in 1925 and utilizes real-world business scenarios that are designed to teach students business skills in a practical and challenging manner. It’s like learning on the job.
The Harvard Business School’s faculty members work with leading business organizations to write over 350 new cases every year, so not only will they be fresh, they will be pertinent to a quickly changing business environment. If you want to truly appreciate this program, consider that over 80% of all business cases used in post-secondary business courses around the country are written by Harvard Business School faculty members.
The Case Method
The business school is the only top B-school in the country with its own self-contained residential campus. This environment gives the school an advantage because students are constantly engaged with their peers in the learning process both in and out of the classroom. The closeness to peers, students, faculty, and resources maximizes the learning experience. Students are put into groups of 80-90 students which facilitates close relationships that last a lifetime.
Notable Harvard Business School alumni include New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney, President George W. Bush and GE’s CEO Jefferey Immelt.
