The Latino Student Organization (LASO) at the Harvard Business School is dedicated to fostering a collaborative community of aspiring Latino business leaders who wish to pursue a career in the United States. We provide resources and services to U.S.-born Latino students, students who have worked in Latin America and any student with professional or cultural interest in impacting the future of Latino leadership in the United States. We also promote the engagement of the Latino business community with Harvard Business School.

We know the key to this success is a diversity of viewpoints and experiences in the classroom, which is why we need more Latino leaders at HBS. As an organization, we are dedicated to strengthening the LASO community by fostering a pipeline to HBS, building an encouraging experience once students arrive on campus, and cultivating a deep-rooted connection with Latino alumni.

We are excited to continue the Portrait Project to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. This is our marquee event involving the entire HBS community. It is an opportunity for our members to share their stories on what it means to be Latino. To celebrate our diversity, we host a kick-off reception where students’ portraits are featured for all to view. We encourage students to engage with the portraits in hopes that we all learn from one another and build community.


We promote an environment for LASO members to develop strong personal and professional relationships with the Latino community inside and outside of HBS, and look for members who excel academically and want to make a positive impact in the world.


  • Community: Create a support group for current Latino students
  • Admissions: Support the HBS Admissions office on the recruitment of Latino students
  • Professional Development: Promote professional development in the Latino community
