Passion, skills and aspirations converge in the MS/MBA Program

Emily Batt loathed math class in high school, yet when it came time to pick a college major, she settled on physics.

“My philosophy was to pick the thing that I would be least likely to teach myself,” she said. “I ended up loving physics because it is fundamental to so many other fields and I could apply it in a lot of different ways.”

That cross-disciplinary mindset has served her well throughout her academic and professional career and has become especially valuable since Batt joined the inaugural cohort of Harvard’s MS/MBA program this summer.
