HBS prepares students to be the business leaders of tomorrow with hands-on training. After sharpening their business management skills in classroom-based case studies, students continue their learning more experientially via the field immersion experiences for leadership development (FIELD) method.
A year-long course, students experience FIELD in two parts. The first, called FIELD Foundations, groups students in small teams to focus on intensive self-reflection on their leadership styles and areas for personal growth. The second part, called FIELD Global Immersion, assigns students to internships worldwide. During the immersion portion, students are challenged to apply their skills to developing a new service or product concept for an HBS corporate partner.
