PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS

CALLING ALL HBS PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS FROM AFRICA AND BEYOND!

Is an MBA the right decision for me? What is HBS like? How is the case method taught? What is the culture like and will I fit in? How should I approach the essay writing section of my application? If these are a few of the questions you are asking yourself, then Prospective Students' Day at this year’s Africa Business Conference is a great resource for advice and guidance.

The day will include a panel with current students and an information session with HBS Admissions. We have also planned a case method class experience for all prospective students! Whether you have or have not already observed the case method through class visits, this is your chance to discuss an actual case taught one of our amazing HBS faculty. You do not want to miss this! Electronic copies of the cases will be made available to eligible participants before the conference. The HBS case is meant to be orchestrated by the Professor, and to be driven by the "students". It is therefore necessary for all participant to read the case and prepare before class, after all ANYONE may get a "cold call".

To sign-up for the Prospective Student's day, please indicate interest on the registration form, or send us an email to if you have already registered!
