What is FIELD?
FIELD (Field Immersions for Experience in Leadership Development) is a new first-year course at the Harvard Business School. During the spring module of the course, all 900+ students will work in teams of six to develop and launch a viable “microbusiness”.
In the fall module of the course, students prepared by refining their individual skills through leadership exercises, peer feedback, and personal reflection. During the January session, students traveled in teams to businesses across the globe to create value at the product or service level in a week-long session.
The FIELD course is part of the broader initiative to increase leadership education at HBS by providing opportunities to work in immersive, small-group leadership projects.
