Harvard University s Harvard Business School

Application Deadlines
Round 1: September 7th, 2016
Round 2: January 4th, 2017
Round 3: April 3rd, 2017

When people think about the MBA degree, the very first school that springs to mind is Harvard Business School (HBS). HBS is synonymous with the degree and literally sets the pace for the industry. Everything it does instantly makes news both good and bad. And Harvard s new dean, Nitin Nohria, has immediately injected energy and enthusiasm in the school.

Since assuming leadership of HBS on July 1, 2010, Nohria has racked up accomplishments that would have taken some B-school deans a decade or more to achieve they include crafting and communicating a new agenda for the school known as the five i s for innovation, intellectual ambition, internationalization, inclusion, and integration; pushing through significant changes to the MBA program against concerns by some that he was moving too fast; and raising millions of dollars in donations, including a $50 million gift from India’s Tata Group and its philanthropic interests. All of these moves build on the formidable reputation and clout of the so-called “West Point of Capitalism,” a business school that, frankly, is a university unto itself, with 33 separate buildings on 40 acres of property along the Charles River.

Harvard’s case method curriculum is designed to prepare students for the challenges of leadership in the real world. Though case studies maintain their dominant role at Harvard, the school has introduced several major changes that mix up the traditional HBS formula for training leaders. MBA students now take turns leading a group engaged in specific, assigned projects. They are also sent to work for a week with one of more than 140 firms in 11 countries, ranging from a Brazilian soap maker to a Chinese real estate management company. Groups are also given eight weeks and seed money of $3,000 each to launch a small company. The most successful, as judged by a vote of their fellow students, receives additional funding.

These very ambitious changes especially for an MBA program the size and scope of Harvard s build on what has long been an engaging and proactive learning environment, where students develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to face a variety of difficult decisions they’ll encounter throughout their careers.

Students spend their first two terms completing the required curriculum with a section of 90 students to which they are assigned. This group of students takes all first-year classes together and forms an intellectual and social circle. During the second year, students choose up to five courses per semester to build their elective curriculum of choice. The new curriculum changes this up a bit, adding shorter courses into the course catalog.

In the 2012-2013 admissions season, Harvard announced significant changes in the way it assesses MBA applicants. The school cut the number of required essay questions in half, from four to two and added a novel 24-hour test for applicants who make the first cut and get an interview with admissions. Those candidates have to write a 400-word essay on what they wish they d said but didn t during the interview and put it on their online application within 24 hours of the interview.

Ranking Analysis:

For the first time in five years since the debut of Poets Quants ranking, Harvard Business School slipped behind Stanford to rank second in 2014. The fall largely occurred after Businessweek s newly updated ranking based on major changes to its methodology put HBS in eighth place, down from second two years earlier.

Make no mistake: Harvard is one of the very best two or three premier MBA players. If a business school ranking fails to give Harvard its due, it s merely the result of quirky methodology and little else. There is no business school in the U.S. and even in the world that can genuinely lay claim to having a better MBA program than Harvard. With the largest endowment of any business school by far, the institution s resources are vast and so is the quality of the school s faculty, students, and alumni. And because Harvard has been at this for so many years, its MBAs are far ahead of any others in getting and occupying powerful and influential leadership positions in one industry after another. That s why HBS always leads rankings of B-schools with the most CEOs at the world s top corporations.

In fact, the biggest misconception that business school rankings propagate is that Harvard is just another school on the list and its rivals are close competitors. Harvard is in a class by itself.

If you re an applicant and are fortunate enough to be accepted by Harvard, there are legitimate reasons to turn the school down: you want a smaller, more intimate experience; you prefer a less competitive school; you want more of a mix of lectures, case studies, and experiential learning; you want to live and work in a completely different part of the country; or another school has nailed a specialty discipline that makes it a no-brainer. But you d be making a difficult call to say no to what is, without question, the best business school in the world.

Olympic fencer Keeth Smart 10 talks about his transition from professional athlete to fitness technology entrepreneur.

Despite price tags reaching $200M, the Olympic Games remains a rare opportunity for sponsors.

How can something that our political leaders and many an economist said would make everyone better off be so reviled?

Corporate social responsibility has long been an opportunity for companies to bolster their public image and boost their sales. But it also sends important signals to potential employees.

Finance, not technology, has prompted explosive growth in roof-top solar, but its future hangs on a shifting patchwork of legislation.

After a devastating diagnosis, Bita Javadizadeh Brun ’99 found help and hope in fellow alumnus Dr. Ghassan Abou-Alfa ’16. Now the two are teaming up to aid others.

An amicable split seems to be in everyone s interests. But the divorce could become messy.

Over-crowding in US emergency rooms costs patients time, money, and their health. But predictive analytics could help re-route patients away from over-burdened hospitals before long waits become inevitable.

Highly trained women in the US workforce earn a fraction of what their male peers do. Part of the discrepancy may come down to differences in men’s and women’s tastes for competition.

University of Chicago

Profile

Founded in 1898, Booth is one of the oldest schools in the United States. Seven Booth faculty members and alums have won the Nobel Prize in economics since 1982. The curriculum has only one required course — Leadership Effectiveness and Development. It was among the first experiential leadership development programs at a major business school and lets students benchmark themselves with respect to critical aspects of leadership – working in teams, influencing others, conflict management, interpersonal communication, and presentation skills. Among the class of 2014 seeking employment 97.2% accepted a job within 3 months of graduation, second only to Dartmouth’s Tuck. More »

What Alumni Are Saying
  • At Chicago you get out of the program what you put into it. I truly believe they have the best faculty in the world and foster an environment which emphasizes both leadership and technical skills. There are tracks you can choose that require less work, but if you really want to test yourself and see how good you can become, then this is a great program.
  • Not only did Booth provide the financial education that everyone expects, it provided a surprising amount of leadership and teamwork experience that has been even more critical to my success in the financial world.
  • Booth really taught me the fundamentals well. My job profiles, responsibilities, etc. change constantly. The things I learned at Booth guide me on how to navigate complexities.
  • Booth required me to embark on a rigorous intellectual endeavor that stretched the limits of my mind. The true academic nature of the Booth MBA changed the way I address and interpret data, which has made me a much better investor and boss.

    Harvard Business School s bricks-and-clicks spending spree

    The inventor of the MBA is investing heavily to track changes to the global economy

    Champion of the two-year course: Harvard Business School dean Nitin Nohria

    As dean of Harvard Business School, part of Nitin Nohria’s job is to mythologise its vast campus. The inauguration last month of yet another new building offered a perfect marketing opportunity.

    “One way in which one can understand the evolution of business is to just walk through HBS and see the names of the buildings,” Prof Nohria declared in a video to mark the occasion, alluding to facilities named after the likes of bankers John Pierpont Morgan, Andrew Mellon and George Fisher Baker, a father of Citigroup.

    IN Business Education

    The new building, a base for executive-level courses named the Ruth Mulan Chu Chao Center, does indeed constitute a milestone for HBS by commemorating the rise of China. It was funded with $40m from James Si-Cheng Chao, a Chinese-American businessman, and named after his late wife. It is the first building at HBS to bear the name of a woman — appropriately, as four of Mr Chao’s six daughters went to HBS — or that of an Asian-American.

    Tellingly, the temporary structure that housed the dining hall for visiting executives during construction was so plush and solid that it would not have looked out of place as a permanent fixture on less-endowed campuses.

    The Chao Center is just one of the more visible manifestations of the heavy spending currently under way at HBS — some arising from donations, some from its own resources — as it tries to adjust to the changing global economy.

    The outlay can be tracked in the un­usually detailed annual accounts that the school produces. Its 2015 fiscal year report showed its costs had on average increased faster than sales over the previous five years, dragging down its operating profit margin from 9.6 per cent to 6.6 per cent.

    Although reversing this trend is a long-term priority for HBS, margins were expected to come under further pressure this decade as strategic spending continues to ramp up.

    Investment in the MBA course that Harvard created more than a century ago accounts for part of the spending increase. While other business schools have diverted resources into one-year courses, such as the Masters in Management qualification aimed at recent graduates, HBS has remained wedded to the two-year MBA course catering for those with a few years of career experience.

    The “core and soul of the school”, is how Prof Nohria describes the MBA in an interview with the Financial Times. “In the last five years we have been very determined to double down in some ways on the MBA,” he says.

    Business Education

    Global MBA ranking 2016

    Insead’s MBA becomes the first one-year programme to reach the number one spot

    “Many of the investments we have made, they have been investments to strengthen and make even more compelling why you should spend two years in an MBA programme.”

    One of those investments has been into a curriculum innovation it calls “Field Immersion Experiences for Leadership Development”, or “Field”, to use the inevitable acronym. This is designed to complement the more abstract discussion of case studies in the classroom. A typical project might involve travelling to China to research the market for personal computers on behalf of Intel.

    Not all are convinced that it equates to real experience, however. Henry Mintzberg, a McGill University management professor, is a long-time critic of MBAs and the case method, which he sees as too theoretical. He characterises the Field innovation as “young know-nothings shooting off their mouths about things they don’t understand”.

    The stubborn focus on a two-year course has its risks in a world where workers often struggle to make time for even short courses. But the Harvard MBA, which each year sucks in 900 students and levies a $64,000 annual tuition fee, is still an attractive calling card for those seeking to run the world’s biggest companies. In the past month alone, Nestlé and US industrial conglomerate Honeywell have opted to be led by HBS alumni, for instance.

    In spite of its huge resources the venerable institution has not yet been able to develop a reputation for fostering entrepreneurship that is equal to its lustre in the traditional corridors of corporate power.

    A round-up of free online business and management courses currently offered on Mooc platforms

    An FT 2016 ranking of the best MBA programmes for entrepreneurship placed HBS in 13th position, for instance, whereas Stanford Graduate School of Business — with its strong links to Silicon Valley — came top.

    Overall, HBS has this year’s second-highest FT-ranked MBA in the world, having come top in 2015 and 2014.

    Harvard still has an entrepreneurial ace to play. This spring, the broader university won final approval to construct a new building next to the business school that will house the bulk of its school of engineering and applied sciences — a clear sign of desire to foster more partnerships between techies and MBAs.

    Amid all the physical construction work and architects’ plans, there is another destination for HBS spending that could prove to be more significant than yet another building.

    It has also been pouring money — the sum is confidential — into an online learning platform called HBX that targets different markets from its usual MBA and executive education offerings.

    Launched a year ago, the product is very different from the Moocs — or massive open online courses — produced in vast quantities, often for free, by educational providers in recent years, with variable success.

    There is the cost, for a start: a hefty $1,800 for HBX’s 12-week primer on the fundamentals of business thinking. say. There is an element of social learning, with students incentivised to answer each other’s questions. And the platform also contains a digital version of one of the scariest conventions of the Harvard MBA classroom — the “cold call”, where a professor randomly chooses a student to start the debate.

    “HBX is a huge bet that we are making what will end up being a deeply important strand of our education,” says Prof Nohria. But HBS expects it will take time for the project to practise what it preaches — and make a profit.

    Nitin Nohria: A political pragmatist

    Born in India, Nitin Nohria is the first Harvard Business School dean from outside North America. After his appointment in 2010, he also became the first head of the school since the 1970s to live in the dean’s house on campus, giving him a prime view of all the building work.

    His links to the world beyond the Charles River include a non-executive directorship at Tata Sons, the Indian holding company. Ratan Tata. its former chairman, attended the HBS Advanced Management Program in 1975, and bankrolled a glass-and-brick building at the school for other executive education clients four decades later.

    Prof Nohria describes himself as a pragmatist about politics, saying that he has not been tempted to take a high-profile stance against the economic populism and hostility to globalisation that has characterised much of the US election campaign so far.

    On the controversial issue of Donald Trump. a graduate of rival business school Wharton, Prof Nohria says it is important to differentiate between what a candidate says on the campaign trail and what they might do if elected president. “Campaigns make you recognise that there are checks and balances in our political system that will be an important counterweight to the rhetoric of any political candidate.”

    And he feels that the mood is not in danger of creating the kind of backlash against leading business schools seen after the financial crisis, although he acknowledges that inequality is a serious issue for capitalism to confront.
