Session Types

A community-wide resource

HBS Live Online Classrooms were designed to bring the immersive, interactive experience of the case method to remote learners, anywhere in the world. The HBS Live Online Classrooms are a community-wide resource—available to all HBS faculty, staff, and administrators at no charge.

I truly love to work with professionals. After twenty years of teaching at HBS, the HBS Live Online Classrooms team is truly the most impressive group of professionals I’ve had the privilege of working with on our campus.
