Field Immersion Experiences for Leadership Development (FIELD), a curricular innovation announced by Harvard Business School in January 2011, is a required first-year course that spans a full academic year. The objective of the Global Immersion portion of the course is to increase students' global intelligence—an awareness of the variation in business processes and capabilities, customers, and the institutional environment across different markets. Students work with organizations and focus on a new product or service development project designed to help them study business opportunities primarily in emerging markets.
