SEAS and HBS in Allston

by Thomas R. Eisenmann and Kerry Herman


The case describes opportunities for and barriers to collaboration between the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and Harvard Business School as SEAS prepares to move two-thirds of its faculty and classes to a new campus in Allston, 1.5 miles from its current Cambridge location. Companion cases (“SEAS in 2016,” HBS No. 817-063, and “HBS in 2016,” HBS No. 817-062) provide background on the two schools.
