The Harvard Full-Time MBA

Harvard Business School (HBS) full-time MBA program is currently ranked #1 of all MBA programs around the globe, according to The Financial Times. Needless to say, HBS provides academic rigor, a pristine setting to learn among Ivy League education, and its graduates reportedly see an average of 121% increase in salary upon graduation, entering fields most commonly in consulting, finance or technology.

The HBS MBA emphasizes not just building a business, but ambitiously changing the world. It asks of all incoming students, “What will you do to make a difference in the world?” For this reason, Harvard MBAs are driven, have a compelling story and goal, as well as impressive academic records, test scores, and record of extracurricular activities.

As detailed below, academia at HBS follows three main methods of learning: the section experience, the case study method, and the FIELD method.

The section experience is the most basic of methods that provides a smaller classroom feel for a larger class by dividing the incoming class of MBA students into cohorts of 90. These cohorts complete the required curriculum together, complete the FIELD experience together, and learn to exchange and accept ideas from colleagues of varying backgrounds and interests. Required curriculum courses include Strategy, Marketing, Finance, and Leadership and Corporate Accountability, to name a few.

The case method at HBS compliments the idea of immersive learning, where students are presented with a case study in the beginning of a class. Students read through the case and watch situations unfold as they make decisions as if they were in the situation themselves. One of the key elements of a case study is that it allows a free exchange of ideas, as well as close collaboration between faculty and students.

The FIELD method, or Field Immersion Experiences for Leadership Development, first places teams of students in classroom environments called “hives”. In the “hives”, students engage in interactive workshops, developing imperative leadership skills through team feedback, self-awareness, and self-reflection. Second, FIELD immerses students into different markets of interest to provides opportunity for students to practice their skills by developing a new product or service at one of HBS’s global company partners. Finally, FIELD students integrate all of their experiences and knowledge from their year through FIELD into launching a real microbusiness. Each of these three sections of FIELD takes place within the first year of the two-year MBA program, effectively gearing students toward their future careers.

Best wishes,
Dr. Shel (Shelly Watts)
