    Online Petition Dates: August 29 - September 6

    Depending on faculty preference, students may enroll in HBS-MBA courses via 1 of 2 options:

    1. Faculty member self-selects students: if the HU catalog entry includes a note about submitting CV and statement of interest information, the faculty will be choosing students directly.

    2. Open seats are distributed via lottery: if the HU catalog entry includes a note about the separate lottery registration, please be sure to separately rank your course(s) via the lottery link visible on your my.Harvard under the heading, “Enrollment Event.”

    Submitting Petitions

    HU graduate students submit petitions online through My.Harvard.
