Leading Technology Ventures
A two-year joint degree program between Harvard Business School (HBS) and the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS)
Today’s foremost tech innovators and entrepreneurs possess an advanced blend of engineering proficiency, design vision and managerial leadership. For most, it takes many years to develop this world-changing combination.
Harvard Business School (HBS) and the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) offer a joint degree program which confers an MBA from HBS and a Master of Science in Engineering Sciences from SEAS. The program is completed in four semesters over two years, augmented by summer and January term coursework amounting to three-quarters of a fifth semester. Designed to train future leaders of technology ventures, the MS/MBA program will provide a strong foundation in general management, build design skills, and extend students’ understanding of engineering.
Leaders of today’s most successful technology ventures have united their passion for innovation and engineering with an in-depth knowledge of management and leadership.
