Full-Tuition Scholarships for Students with Greatest Financial Need

In an effort to make the Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree more affordable and accessible to a wider array of students, HBS announced that it will provide scholarships to cover the total cost of tuition and course fees for those with the greatest financial need—approximately 10 percent of its student body. The School will also offer scholarship support to more students from middle income backgrounds, building on the approximately 50 percent of students who already receive scholarships. Both changes will benefit current and future students and are the latest in a series of steps over the past decade to reduce financial barriers to enrolling in the two-year full-time MBA Program.

Launch of Race, Gender, and Equity Initiative

HBS announced the formation of the Race, Gender, and Equity Initiative, which is both a renaming of the Gender Initiative and a reflection of work it has done and will do to understand and advance equality, including racial equality, in organizations and business. The role of the Initiative, much like the Gender Initiative before it, will be to catalyze and translate cutting-edge research to transform practice, enable leaders to drive change, and eradicate gender, race, and other forms of inequality in business and society.
