Weekend Overview

Come to HBS for a weekend to participate in our famous case method classes, live on our campus, meet current students and alumni, and get a peek into what an MBA is all about.

Peek Weekend will help participants develop a greater understanding of the challenges leaders face, the many dimensions inherent in the business world, and the impact participants can have on their community and the world through organizational leadership.

Using the renowned case method of instruction, HBS faculty will lead class discussions on current management challenges and opportunities. Participants will spend evenings analyzing real business cases, and use morning study groups and classes to examine and debate their ideas through lively interaction with peers and faculty. This is the life of an MBA student at HBS. The classroom experience will be supplemented by sessions with HBS staff, students, and alumni. 

Peek participants will learn from the same faculty who teach MBA courses at HBS. Our faculty are internationally recognized for pioneering research and contributions made to business management. 

Who Should Participate in Peek Weekend?

Peek Weekend seeks a diverse group of college students who are exploring career options and want to understand how an MBA can help them achieve their long-term goals. Preference will be given to students who have not had academic or professional exposure (including internships) to business or business-related fields.

Who is Eligible to Apply?

Peek is designed for students currently enrolled in a bachelor's degree program, graduating in the Class of 2020, 2021, and 2022.

Peek Weekend is for prospective students, not those currently going through the application process to HBS through 2+2 or the regular admissions process. In addition, participants from past Peek Weekends are not eligible to apply for Peek 2020.
