Using the renowned case method of instruction, HBS faculty will lead class discussions on current management challenges and opportunities across a broad range of industries and topics. Our faculty are internationally recognized for pioneering research and contributions made to business management.
 
What opportunities are there to interact with current students, alumni, or staff during Peek Weekend?
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. The classroom experience will be supplemented by sessions with HBS staff, students, and alumni.
 
I’m an international student, am I eligible to apply to attend Peek Weekend?
Yes! Domestic and international students alike are welcome to apply. International students will need to secure a travel visa on their own in order to attend.
 
If I have already applied to HBS through 2+2, can I still attend Peek Weekend?
Peek Weekend is for prospective students, not those currently going through the 2+2 application process.
 
Is the admissions decision on a rolling basis?
No. We do not review the Peek applications on a rolling basis. The deadline for the Peek Weekend Application is April 18th. That means that we will not start reading your application until April 19th.
 
Since many will have to coordinate a day off with their internship employers, when can students expect to receive an admissions decision?
Peek application decisions will be announced on May 7, 2018. If admitted, the MBA Admissions Office will supply a letter explaining the Peek Weekend commitment that you can use to coordinate with your internship for the summer.

Is funding available to cover the cost of attendance or travel?
HBS offers a limited number of need-based aid to cover the cost of the program ($200). Applicants will include information in their application if they would like to be considered for the need-based aid. All participants have to cover the cost of their travel to attend.
