Harvard University is the oldest institution of higher learning in the U.S. and one of the most well-known. Founded in 1636 to provide an English university education in England's colonies, Harvard now offers academic programs ranging from law and business to divinity. Breaking with its English roots, Harvard awarded an honorary degree to George Washington after his army pushed British troops out of Boston in 1776. The university has educated seven U.S. Presidents and has more than 320,000 living alumni worldwide.
Harvard Business School has been educating aspiring business leaders since 1908, when the first class of 80 students entered the school. Soon after, the school adopted the case method of instruction, in which students apply classroom principles to real-world problems. The case method has since spread to many other business schools, and HBS now sells more than 7 million cases a year. In addition to a highly ranked two-year full-time MBA, HBS also offers doctoral and executive education programs.
