Harvard Business School Admission

A few days ago Harvard Business School (“HBS”) was in Lagos for an information session at the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos. So as it seems, these ivy league schools are paying more attention to Africa. I know Wharton and Stanford have similar events coming up in the next couple of days. I was at the program and even though I was a few minutes late, I don’t think I missed much. There was a panel of current MBA students (Class of 2015) and some other Harvard Alumni at the program. The students talked about several things – course work, campus life etc. We were also given a run through of HBS’ evaluation criteria which is as follows: • Habit of leadership • Analytical aptitude and appetite • Engaged community citizenship For the admission process, you would need the following: • Written Application • Transcripts • GMAT • Resume • Recommendations • Essay Some points to note however: • The average GMAT score for the Class of 2015 is 73
