What Is Harvard’s Impact in the World?Topics:
It’s safe to assume that Harvard University alumni collectively have a significant impact in the world, but just how significant is hard to know. That is why Harvard Business School is leading a University-wide effort to quantify the global economic and social impact of Harvard University alumni who have founded firms and social enterprises. With the support of Harvard President Drew Gilpin Faust, HBS professor Josh Lerner will survey the entire active alumni community for whom the University has email contact information.
The Harvard Impact Study will augment the data provided by survey respondents with secondary data sources to gauge the entrepreneurial and social impact of the University’s alumni. The survey will launch in the spring of 2015 and a report of the findings will be published in the following months.
