The Harvard Business Analytics Program is delivered through a blend of online and in-person learning experiences. Learn more about the program and the world-class faculty involved.
As a student, you will be challenged to demonstrate and apply ideas and technologies both inside and outside of classes. All of your courses will have recorded, produced, and interactive content as well as live sessions of up to 60 students.
Each week, you will log in to the online platform to access your assignments. These demanding exercises will be completed in advance of your class sessions, on your own schedule from any connected device. The lessons you learn on your own time throughout each week will inform weekly, faculty-led class discussions.
Live Weekly Classes
You will join your classmates in live, online class sessions. You will use your webcam to attend classes. Online classes are led by faculty members from Harvard Business School (HBS), the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), and the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS) and utilize the case method of teaching—an approach pioneered by Harvard—which puts you in the driver’s seat of real-world business challenges.
In addition to the online learning components of the program, you will attend two weekend-long, in-person immersions hosted on campus at Harvard Business School in Boston.
During these in-person experiences, you will meet face-to-face with your classmates, network with faculty and industry leaders, and participate in hands-on guided learning exercises where you will apply the skills you have developed throughout your time in the program.
Room and board for immersions is covered in the cost of tuition, however travel to and from Boston is not. As this is a non-degree-bearing program, we are unable to offer visa sponsorship for international students attending an immersion.
