HBS Launches January Term Program

Harvard Business School has enhanced its MBA curriculum by offering a range of intensive seminars, independent opportunities, and an expanded Immersion Experience Program (IXP) during a new January Term between the fall and winter semesters, the school announced  Wednesday.

The eight HBS January Term faculty-led seminars are being taught in small classroom settings covering a variety of subject areas, including leadership, negotiation, global trends, sustainable development, and health care.

Off campus, students enrolled in January Term IXPs are spreading out to locations such as China, India, Peru, and Rwanda, undertaking field-based learning activities, company visits, and service projects as part of these international experiential learning programs.

“The HBS January Term gives students the opportunity to reflect in a different way on what they are learning in the classroom through in-depth study and by applying their learning in the field,” says professor Joseph Badaracco, faculty chair of the HBS MBA program.

“Our offerings include a mix of small seminars, international immersions, and independent professional development opportunities that allow students to take a deep, interactive dive into topics, industries, and regions that inspire them.”

HBS is among the first Harvard schools to pilot the new term at the University in conjunction with Harvard’s move to a common calendar this academic year. January Term offerings are open to first- and second-year HBS MBA students.
