When you’re at the top business school in the nation, some things come easily. Last year, 95% of Harvard Business School students landed jobs or launched companies within three months of graduation, reports the Wall Street Journal.
And HBS intends to keep it that way — in part, by creating more entrepreneurs.
This fall the school is rolling out a new curriculum, which focuses more on ethics and “hands-on training in entrepreneurship and leadership,” its dean Nitin Nohria tells the Journal:
One of the most significant changes that we have made in our M.B.A. curriculum this year is a platform we’re calling the FIELD [field immersion experiences for leadership development] method. Students will be required to develop a micro-business. We’re going to give them $3,000, and they have to launch a product or service.
Though it’s not that these students need the extra incentive, Nohria tells the Journal: “Keeping students at the nation’s top business school humble can sometimes be a challenge.”
