Technology

Each year, approximately 11% of the HBS graduating class pursues a career in the technology sector. Ranging from working for a global technology firm as an internal consultant, to a product manager at an established software firm, to founding a cloud-computing start-up, HBS students are incredibly interested in pushing the boundaries of what's possible in this industry.

Our students are ready to face the challenges of a career in technology and are exposed to many facets of this industry—from classes and cases to conferences and company presentations—during their two years at HBS.

Connect with Students

You can connect with our students interested in pursuing a career in technology through both student clubs and events.

More than 340 students had experience in technology prior to attending HBS, and the TechMedia Club boasts over 350 student members. The TechMedia Club strives to make Harvard Business School a powerful source of global leadership in technology and digital media. The club hosts speakers from the industry throughout the year as well as the annual Cyberposium Conference typically held at HBS in November. The club also organizes an annual Career Trek "WesTrek" to visit Bay Area companies.

The Entrepreneurship Club aims to provide a conduit by which students can access relevant entrepreneurial resources, network with prominent community entrepreneurs, and share ideas. To this end, the club is dedicated to furthering understanding about new or small businesses, in technology and beyond.
