Going Forward

A message from Dean Nitin Nohria

Through The Harvard Business School Campaign, we are positioning the School to deepen its impact on business and business education.

From its inception, the Campaign has had high aspirations. We aimed to increase engagement and participation among our alumni and the next generation of HBS leaders; to improve the perception of HBS and business in the world; to engage with the University in mutually beneficial ways; and to build the case for flexible funding that would support innovation at the School. On all these dimensions we have made real progress, and I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished.

Our work, however, is not done. I envision a future where we—the alumni, students, faculty members, and staff of Harvard Business School—work in concert to address society’s most difficult problems, innovate to redefine what is possible, and cross sectors to find solutions to complicated challenges.

To achieve this, we are focused on several critical priorities. We must continue to build a world-class faculty by ensuring that we are able to attract and develop outstanding junior faculty members. While we have an amazing fellowship program, we can do more to make the School accessible to students with tremendous potential who may otherwise never have imagined that an HBS degree is within their reach. We can find new ways to leverage the fact that we are part of a great university as we build programmatic bridges with our future neighbor in Allston, the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. We also are committed to extending exciting work that we have begun, including further investing in HBX, continuing innovation in the MBA Program, and strengthening the global understanding of our faculty and students.

I am emboldened and inspired by the opportunities that lie ahead. Business will be the engine that creates prosperity, both in our communities and for society.
