Harvard Adds Program to Train Nonprofit Leaders
Harvard Business School plans to announce today that it will offer a new joint-degree program with Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government to prepare students for leadership posts in the nonprofit world, as well as in business and government, reports The Boston Globe.
The three-year program will start next fall. Its aim is to give students a broader view of the issues and challenges they will face in their working lives and try to lessen the mutual antagonism between business and government leaders, the newspaper said.
The new program will offer two joint degrees: a master’s in business administration/master’s in public policy, or a master’s in business administration/master’s in public administration-international development. To pursue either degree, students must be accepted by both schools.
