MBA students with backgrounds in all sectors are encouraged to integrate social enterprise skills into their academic, professional, and personal lives. Opportunities for involvement in social enterprise at HBS include elective courses and field-based learning experiences; internships and career development programs; and student clubs and organizations.
As part of the MBA curriculum, students analyze many cases focused on health care, and can customize their second-year experience by choosing courses, projects, papers, and independent studies specific to health care.
Many opportunities arise, both on and off campus, to engage in health care activities, network with alumni who work in the industry, and delve more deeply into various health care sectors.
There are a large number of exciting extracurricular events, such as industry speakers, networking events, global treks, conferences, seminars, and more.
