I earned my Master of Business Administration from the Harvard Business School, which was founded in 1908 and had developed to the world’s first MBA program. For over a century, the school has reinvented the concept of management, producing innovative leaders who have revolutionized the way business is conducted around the world. In 1922, the school began its doctoral program and also started publishing its Harvard Business Review. Soon after, the school moved to its own campus and implemented the case study method of instruction, which has become a hallmark in business management education. In the 1940s, the Harvard Business School pioneered the field of executive education with its Advanced Management Program. More recently, the school established Harvard Business Publishing and expanded its reach with Global Research Centers in Silicon Valley, Japan, India, Europe, Asia, and Latin America. The Harvard Business School houses a number of important business initiatives, such as the Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness. Led by Professor Michael Porter, the Institute looks at the implementation of competition in company strategy. Not focused solely on business competition, the Institute also considers geographic competition and the ways in which it alleviates or worsens social problems. Another initiative is the Arthur Rock Center for Entrepreneurship, founded in 2003 using a donation from venture capitalist Arthur Rock. The Center funds faculty research, fellowships for students, symposia, and conferences, as well as the annual business plan contest. Through its Entrepreneur-in-Residence program, the Center invites established entrepreneurs to spend a semester or two on campus, during which time they provide informed advice to current students and give a number of informal talks. An invaluable resource for graduate students, the program helps individuals develop their careers or perfect their business plans.
