【2024-2025】Harvard MBA 出願締切日&Essay課題発表

Harvard MBAが出願締切日とエッセイ課題を発表しました。以前にエッセイ課題の変更可能性を学校は示しておりましたが、結果的に昨年と変更なしという発表になりました。

The application dates for the MBA Class of 2027 (matriculating fall 2025) are:

ROUND 1 04 SEP 2024 10 DEC 2024
ROUND 2 06 JAN 2025 26 MAR 2025

Applications received after September 4, 2024 will be considered in Round 2. Applications received after January 6, 2025 will not be considered. Please note that each “round” represents a distinct period in which you may apply, not a succession of steps for your application. You may apply in one round only, one time in an application year.


There is one question for the Class of 2026 application:

As we review your application, what more would you like us to know as we consider your candidacy for the Harvard Business School MBA program? (900 words)

We invite you to share personal or professional experiences from your background that give you a unique ability to contribute to HBS. Try to remember to not overthink or overwrite in this essay; it is best to answer the question in clear and concise language that those of us who don’t know your world can understand.

Joint program applicants for the Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Harvard Law School, and Harvard Kennedy School must provide an additional essay: How do you expect the joint degree experience to benefit you on both a professional and a personal level? (400 words)
