- 27 (23%) of the admitted students are Harvard undergraduates.
- Approximately half the admitted students have educational backgrounds in engineering and natural sciences.
- Students in the program are currently enrolled in 51 different colleges and universities.
For more data, please see the HBS 2+2 Class of 2014 profile on The Director’s Blog. There you will find additional data of interest:
- 2+2 students come from 17 countries.
- 44% come from the liberal arts and social sciences; only 6% studied business as undergrads.
- The average GMAT is 727.
- The GMAT quant range: 690-800.
If you are planning to apply to HBS 2+2 this summer, you will be interested in the feedback Natalie Grinblatt Epstein received yesterday from a very happy client:
“I just wanted to let you know that I have been officially accepted to the 2+2 program. I can’t thank you enough for all the help you had given me over these past few months. You really have been invaluable in this process, and have been instrumental in my acceptance.”
Applicants to the 2+2 Program, now in its second year, apply to HBS in their junior year. Those accepted work for two years after their college graduations and before entering HBS.
