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.
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:
Class visit registration is currently available for visits through mid-December. Register here for a class visit. The class visit program will resume after the winter break. Registration will be available at the beginning of January for class visits that start at the end of January and run through early May.
Campus tours are available on most Mondays and Fridays throughout the year. Tours are often hosted by students and 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.
While classes are in session, the Admissions Office co-hosts along with current students group information sessions for prospective students on most Mondays and Fridays throughout the year that follow the campus tour. 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.
Each year around 25 student organized clubs host their annual conferences on the HBS campus. If you are planning a visit to the HBS campus, we encourage you to check out the list of conferences in advance and potentially plan your visit at the same time as a conference of your interest. The conferences require advanced registration (including a registration fee).
