HBS Opens Chinese Facility

Harvard Business School plans to open its first overseas facility, in Shanghai, and expand the number of overseas experiences available to its MBA students, the Financial Times has reported.

The international expansion is part of a broader curriculum development program slated to include a variety of small classroom seminars that address topics such as negotiation, healthcare and sustainable development.

This move will give both first and second-year MBA students a chance to study business practices outside the United States as they travel to China, India, Peru and Rwanda, FT reports.

Top-ranked programs such as Wharton and Stanford now offer immersion experiences as a matter of course, but Harvard has been slow to initiate such projects, FT has found, citing their 2009 rankings, which show that the other top seven US programs all rank more highly in the international experience enjoyed as part of the MBA program.

More than 400 first and second year Harvard students will participate in the program beginning this month.
