The Harvard Business School Campaign, chaired by John Hess (AB 1975, MBA 1977), launched on April 25, 2014. Recognizing that the need for leadership has never been greater, HBS aims to set the standard for innovation and excellence in management education for the next century. A series of regional events around the world from 2014–2016 gave alumni the opportunity to learn about and share in the School’s vision for the future. As part of the Campaign, HBS is creating better mechanisms for alumni to connect with each other and the School around topical ideas and issues in business and society. The Campaign, which will conclude in 2018, aims to raise $1 billion to accomplish these goals. Together, we believe we can have a lasting impact in addressing the world's most challenging issues.
