HBS Career & Professional Development (CPD) works to provide varied resources tailored to each individual's need. With our help, you'll not only have the tools you need for both your internship and full-time search, but also an array of resources geared toward your professional development post-HBS.

A Dedicated Team

CPD is committed to help both students and alumni realize their unique career visions. With more than 30 career education professionals on the team, we work together to not only guide students and alumni through their career journey, but also provide valuable programming for both students and alumni and create valuable employer relationships for the HBS network.

Experienced Coaches

In addition to our team, students and alumni can choose from more than 60 career coaches who are trained to work with them throughout their career trajectories. Coaches are experienced business professionals who can help you craft resumes, cover letters, create and execute a search strategy, prepare for interviews and negotiations and improving your networking.

Company Connections

CPD partners with more than 1,400 companies each year to host events, post jobs, and conduct interviews. Both students and alumni have access to our exclusive database, where you can search for companies, contacts, and job postings by industry, location, and function. You can also make company connections through the various student-led clubs, which network with organizations.

On-Demand Career Education

Our programs and resources aren't just available to you during your time at HBS. From the moment you arrive on campus to wherever you go after graduation, you'll have access to thousands of job postings, videos and career education resources tailored to your individual needs.

Student Fellowships

HBS supports diverse career paths through internship funding, loan assistance and alumni fellowships. In 2021, 223 students completed internships at HBS through our Summer Fellows Program. Each year, HBS graduates are offered high-impact opportunities in both the public and nonprofit sector as Leadership Fellows.

Global Opportunity Fellowship (GO: AFRICA)

HBS supports graduating students and recent alumni who are making a different working in Africa. The GO Fellowship is awarded to a limited number of students/recent graduates who accept a full-time, post-HBS job in Africa, or are a founder of a new venture in Africa.

Loan Reduction

HBS offers a loan reduction program for graduates working in the private sector with compensation significantly below the HBS average. Learn more about the details of this initiative. Additionally, alumni can apply to the HBS Social Enterprise Loan Repayment Assistance Program, which is managed by the Social Enterprise Initiative. These efforts are part of the larger financial aid offerings.
