Field Based Learning

Independent Projects - formerly called Field Studies - allow second-year HBS students to receive academic credit by completing projects that address an organization's real-time challenges. A faculty member advises students during their work on a project of strategic importance to the organization. Independent Project teams ideally range from 3-5 people, although a team of 2 or 6 may be supported, or a student may work solo with a faculty supervisor. Each team or individual is expected to conduct research in the field, carry out thoughtful analysis, prepare a report, and make a final presentation-supported by concrete findings and recommendations-to the advising faculty and, if appropriate, the sponsoring organization. Students find and develop independent project ideas in many ways. If your organization would like to learn more about posting an independent project for fall or winter term for student consideration, please see the detailed information below.
