Harvard Business School @ Princeton on December 2nd

Hello,

My name is Allison Smith and I am an Admissions Officer with Harvard Business School (HBS). I am helping HBS spread the word about our 2+2 Program, and my colleague and Princeton alum Jill will be visiting Princeton Tuesday December 2nd, 2014 from 3:00pm-4:00pm.

The program is for students in their final year of study; it is an admissions deferral program. Students in their final year of study apply to Harvard Business School as part of 2+2, and if they are accepted they work full-time for 2-4 years before enrolling at HBS to complete their MBA.  The program focuses on, but is not limited to, those with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) backgrounds. While this does focus on upperclassmen it is very informative to those interested in an MBA and we encourage them to attend.

We have posted this event on our calendar a few weeks ago, but feel free to forward the attached flyer to members of your club or organization.   We would love to highlight the ways a HBS MBA can enhance your future career.

Thanks again, and please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Sincerely,

Allison Smith
