BOSTON, December 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Harvard Business School (HBS) is organizing an information session regarding its MBA program. It will take place in Istanbul on Tuesday January 15th at 7:00PM (Titanic City Taksim Hotel, Lamartin Cad. No. 47, Taksim 34437, Istanbul).
Dedicated to potential applicants, the presentation will focus on the details of Harvard Business School's MBA (Master in Business Administration) program: a 2-year, full-time course in general management held on the School's 40-acre campus in Boston. In keeping with the School's mission statement, "To educate leaders who make a difference in the world", students at HBS experience two years of leadership practice by immersing themselves in real-world challenges through the "Case Method". Case studies, an important educational innovation in the teaching of management that was pioneered by Harvard Business School, present the challenges confronting leading companies, nonprofits, and government organizations and place the students in the role of the decision maker. In class-under the questioning and guidance of the professor-students probe underlying issues, compare different alternatives, and suggest courses of action in light of the organization's objectives. This classroom interaction is enriched by ninety classmates from diverse industries, functions, countries, backgrounds, and experiences.
Beginning with this academic year, a new curricular innovation is complementing the "Case Method." The so-called Field Immersion Experience for Leadership Development (FIELD) is a required first-year course comprising three modules and focusing on developing small-group learning experiences that are "immersive, field-based, and action-oriented." The third module, for example, provides all first-year students with an opportunity to combine the knowledge, skills, and tools they have learned from their coursework to develop and bring to market a small business.
In order to attend the presentation, a free registration is required and can be done online: http://www.hbs.edu/mba/admissions/events.html.
