Harvard Business School (HBS) has a 2+2 program where current students, either in undergrad or in a master’s degree program, can apply to HBS on a deferred basis (more info below). They are having a series of virtual information sessions that I thought the students who you work with would be interested in attending. I’ve listed the sessions below and attached a flyer. Can you please share via your preferred channels?
HBS Fall Virtual College Events
- November 30th at 5:15pm (EST) – College Programs Series: The Value of an MBA for Humanities Majors

The 2+2 program is comprised of at least two years of professional work experience followed by two years in the regular HBS MBA Program. We’re looking for innovative thinkers who have demonstrated leadership and analytical skills and want to develop their knowledge and passion to make a difference in the world. After being admitted through 2+2, students spend a minimum of two years (maximum of four years) working in a professional position in the public, private, or nonprofit sector before enrolling at HBS.
Who Are We Looking For?
Students from any academic background who meet the eligibility requirements are encouraged to apply.
Some preference will be given to high potential individuals on paths that aren’t as well established in leading to graduate business school, including applicants that fall into any of the fields below:
- Planning to work in an operating company (tech, manufacturing, consumer goods, retail, industrials, etc.)
- From a lower socio-economic background (first generation in college, lower-income family background, less family exposure to graduate school)
- Going into a technically demanding role
- Pursuing entrepreneurship
