The HBS class of 2021 weathered quite a few setbacks with the rapid changes to their internships in the summer of 2020, some of which were pulled entirely, others that were quickly transitioned to all remote. Despite the challenges of hybrid learning and a world forever changed, this class managed to secure fabulous opportunities at 335 organizations all over the world. Our overall median base salary increased only slightly to $150,500 from $150,000 last year, and we didn’t see tremendous shifts in our industry percentages. We did see a strong group of students commit to positions in social enterprise with fourteen of our graduates joining the 20th class of Leadership Fellows, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a select group of graduating students to experience high-impact management positions in nonprofit and public sector organizations for one year at a competitive salary.

We look forward to seeing how the class of 2021 will make the world a better place!
