Harvard Business School - Degree Programs

 Admissions

Harvard Business School is a demanding, fast-paced, and highly-verbal environment. We look for individuals who enjoy lively discussion and debate. Our case and field-based methods of learning depend upon the active participation of prepared students who can assess, analyze, and act upon complex information within often-ambiguous contexts. The MBA Admissions Board will review your prior academic performance, the results of the GMAT or GRE, and, if applicable, TOEFL iBT and/or IELTS, and the nature of your work experience. There is no particular previous course of study required to apply; you must, however, demonstrate the ability to master analytical and quantitative concepts.

Financial Aid

Business school is a valuable investment in your future. HBS proudly supports that investment by offering generous need-based HBS Scholarships to help students cover the full Cost of Attendance. Every financial aid package is different. Packages may include a combination of your scholarship award, savings, and a student loan. HBS will help you meet your full financial need through a combination of these resources: HBS need-based scholarships, savings and student loans.
