Harvard Introduces MBA Curriculum Changes

Harvard Business School

A recent Businessweek article discusses the changes Harvard Business School plans on making to its curriculum over the next three years, including an increase in second-year electives and case studies.

Two years ago HBS overhauled its first-year curriculum; the current changes will mostly affect second-year students. This curriculum overhaul will be funded in part by a recent $10 million gift from the family of the late William Connell (HBS 1963).

Dean Nitin Nohria explains: “This new donation…provides us with the financial support we need to enhance our second-year curriculum and make it a deeper, more cohesive, and more innovative experience that will have a life-long impact on our students.”
