How Classes Work

We offer three different types of formats for programs: on campus, live online, and hybrid.

  1. On-campus programs take place in our dedicated state-of-the-art classroom space on Harvard’s campus at One Brattle Square, Cambridge, MA.
  2. Online programs are held via Zoom where you receive the same content online as on-campus, but from the convenience of your home or office.
  3. Hybrid programs are available both live online and on campus. Online participants are fully integrated into the program with the ability to see, hear, contribute, and network alongside your in-person counterparts.

Who Should Enroll

Each leadership and management course is designed to meet the needs of different industry leaders and professionals. Many of them are appropriate for a wide range of individuals, but some are specifically tailored to senior leaders, emerging leaders, or executives. More information about who should enroll in each program can be found on each program’s page.

Want to bring one of these leadership programs to your organization? Our team will work with you to find the way to engage with our programs that works best for your needs.

What You Earn

After completing a program, you receive a Certificate of Participation from the Harvard Division of Continuing Education, further validating your expertise in the field. Taking the step to earn a certificate from a professional development program can signal to your employer that you are open to new experiences and enthusiastic about continuing to learn and grow.
