More than 200 strong, HBS faculty are distinguished leaders in their fields. They have conducted research that has had an impact on organizations and economies on every continent, helped establish business schools, educated thousands of international business leaders, and written thousands of books, papers, and cases. Today, at any given time, there are HBS researchers at work in more than 40 countries.
Focus on Research
All HBS Doctoral Programs are designed to facilitate research above all other activities. While students are required to fulfill a teaching requirement, they are not required to become research assistants, nor are they required to write business cases. And a full scholarship and generous stipend help cover costs and ensure that students have more time to pursue research.
The research resources at HBS are unmatched by any other school. Research facilities include the Baker Library—one of the world's largest and most respected business libraries—and the Faculty Research Computing Center. HBS doctoral students also have access to research facilities throughout Harvard University and neighboring MIT.
Harvard Business School is recognized as a leading supplier of faculty for business schools and universities throughout the world. Recent HBS graduates have received job offers from institutions such as Harvard Business School, Wharton, Stanford, London Business School, Chicago, MIT, Kellogg, INSEAD, and Columbia.
