Harvard Business School
The Harvard business school is renowned around the world for its excellence in and dedication to the goal of creating business and world leaders.

The Campus:
Harvard Business School is not only a place to teach, but also a place that teaches. With thirty-three buildings on forty acres nestled in a bend of the Charles River, this vibrant community's every aspect has been designed to help students develop skills and build relationships that will last a lifetime. Its spacious facilities, remarkable resources, intimate courtyards, open lawns, and tree-lined walkways reinforce both the individual concentration and the group interaction that are critical to the transformational learning experience that the School provides. Founded in 1908, HBS was originally located in Harvard Yard. The present campus, with its stately Georgian buildings following the gentle curve on the Boston side of the Charles River, was dedicated in June of 1927. The firm of Frederick Law Olmsted, designers of New York's Central Park and Boston's "Emerald Necklace" system of parks, designed the landscaping. The learning experience extends far beyond the walls of our classrooms. The campus abounds with places where students gather for projects, discussions, study groups, and

club activities. Along the hallways of Aldrich, for example, are meeting spaces where small groups of students perform the daily ritual of preparing together for upcoming case discussions.

Student life:
At HBS, breakthrough moments can happen any time: in a late-night discussion among peers, during a journey along India's east coast, in service to a neighborhood nonprofit or simply while relaxing in a Spangler lounge or competing on the tennis court. While formal education is concentrated within academics, the transformation of potential into leadership is realized through every aspect of the HBS experience. To explore student life here is to investigate multiple ways to learn, to connect, to lead. Being prepared to lead means being prepared for a multilingual, multicultural and international environment. Just as leadership is nurtured in the HBS classroom, so too is our collective engagement with a diverse world. We not only welcome, but embrace, a student body enriched by individuals who reflect many nationalities, cultures, interests, and points of view. Our sections are not merely representative of HBS as a whole, but of the world at large; each Learning Team encourages individual contributions while reinforcing our personal responsibility for the well-being of the larger community.

Residential Life
Walking through the Harvard Business School campus is an experience unlike any other. This stately, elegant 40-acre campus of classic red-brick buildings, tree-lined walkways, and open, grassy courtyards was dedicated in 1927, and is the only top business school in the country with a residential, self-contained campus. The campus design serves to strengthen the sense of community at the School, with the belief that the daily interactions of residential life only increase the potential for learning.
