Our Plan for Interviews This Year

One of our favorite parts of the application process is the chance to have a conversation with you during the interview phase. At that point, we have come to know you through your written application, and we can’t wait to meet you for a live conversation.

Given the COVID-19 pandemic, we conducted all of our interviews virtually via Zoom during the 2020-2021 application year with great success. We have made the decision to continue with virtual interviews again this year, given the continued uncertainty due to the pandemic and disruptions to global travel. If conditions change dramatically and we can safely host in-person interviews in Round 2, we may revisit this decision, but at this point we are planning for all virtual interviews in both Rounds 1 and 2.

For many years, we have conducted virtual interviews for candidates who could not travel to one of our hub cities, and we are confident the interview experience in this upcoming year will be a great one. All interviews will continue to be conducted by our Interview Board—a small group of about 25 individuals, who are trained and conduct many interviews per year. For each interview, we prepare as we would for a case discussion—having thoroughly read your application and ready for an interesting and dynamic conversation with you.

Best of luck to those of you preparing to submit an application by our Round 1 deadline on September 8, 2021 at 12:00 noon ET. We are eager to get to know you!

Big news! Need-based application fee waiver and Class of 2024 application now open

Today, we launch a need-based application fee waiver for all admissions rounds. If you’ve been wondering whether to apply to Harvard Business School, and the application fee presents a hardship for you, please consider submitting a fee waiver request to get the process started!

This need-based app fee waiver complements our generous need-based approach to financial aid. We believe that your financial circumstances should never prevent you from applying to or attending Harvard Business School. We need leaders from all socioeconomic backgrounds at HBS to make a difference in the world. More information on how to request a fee waiver is located here or in the MBA Application.

Speaking of the application, we just opened it up for the Class of 2024 (enrolling in fall 2022). Check it out here or download an application guide. The Round 1 deadline is September 8, 2021, and Round 2 applications are due on January 4, 2022.

Good luck as you get started on your application!
