By virtue of its immersion in the case method, the richness of its section life, and the depth and breadth of its extracurricular activities, the HBS MBA Program is best appreciated through direct experience. If you are interested in applying, we encourage you to visit our campus (but please note a visit to campus is not required or expected). In addition to in-person visits, you also have many opportunities to engage with students, alumni, and admissions staff. Please check our schedule of online and in person outreach events around the world.
Class Visit Program
For many of our students, the excitement, energy and unexpected insights generated by case method education make it unlike anything they have experienced before. We invite you to learn about the academic environment at HBS by observing a class in session.
Due to the number of visit requests we receive, you may only schedule one class visit through the MBA Admissions Office. You may select the class visit time, but not the specific course to observe.
Before you register for a class visit, please be aware of our class visit policies:
Registration is now available for class visits offered from September through early December.
On certain class visit days, prospective student lunches have been scheduled. This is an opportunity for candidates to meet current students who share a similar interest and to learn more about HBS. Please check the Event Calendar for exact dates and to register.
Staff-led campus tours are available on most Mondays and Fridays throughout the summer. Student-led campus tours will resume in early September. Tours leave from the reception area in the Dillon House. No registration is required. Please see the exact dates and times of when campus tours are offered.
The Admissions Office hosts group information sessions on most Mondays and Fridays throughout the summer that follow the campus tour. Students will be co-hosting these sessions starting in early September. Group information sessions are primarily Q&A based; please review the MBA Program and MBA Admissions presentations in advance and come with questions. When planning your visit to campus, we strongly suggest you make time to join both the campus tour and the information session together. Registration is not required for information sessions. Information sessions will not be held when the Admissions Office is closed. Please see the exact dates, times and locations of information sessions.
