Each program asks for a quantitative resume or quantitative statement (we provide examples on our blog).
Finally, we’re looking for a real commitment to public service.
Watch this webinar to learn more about the joint degree program.
The MBA/MPP and MBA/MPA-ID are three-year programs that combine the core curricula of the HBS MBA and HKS degrees with a wide range of elective options from both schools.
The two joint degree programs are structurally similar but differ largely in the HKS courses required and in the elective options in the final year.
The curriculum includes three courses that are exclusive for students in these two programs: the HBS/HKS Joint Degree Seminar in Year 1 and 2, and , during the fall of Year 3.
For all applicants, we want to make sure they have the quantitative skills to succeed.
HKS is a very extracurricular-oriented experience, and you won’t be able to take advantage if you fall behind.
They touch on theories, but the focus is on solutions in a developing world context. HKS offers lots of joint degree opportunities (law, med, business). The intersection of business and government is increasingly important.
Also, people are interested in being social entrepreneurs – outside the traditional channels of non-profits – they want to create their own opportunities to make a difference in society.
