Logistics & Schedule
When should I plan to arrive and depart?
Please plan to arrive on campus by 1:00 pm ET on Sunday, April 3. Harvard Business School will be conducting COVID-19 tests for every participant and arriving before this time ensures your test result will be available by the following day. If you are unable to arrive by this time, please contact us at email@example.com.
The program ends at 12:00 pm ET Friday, April 8, so you may plan to leave that evening or anytime there after.
Can I come for part of the program?
The HBS and Accion policy is to accept participants who can attend the entire program. The program design builds lessons based on each case study, discussion group, and classroom discussion. Therefore, the goals of the program are best achieved through full participation by all participants.
Can I stay off-campus?
The program is designed to create an atmosphere of strong engagement and relationship building among the participants and HBS staff. The policy requires all participants to stay on campus.
Can I bring someone with me, e.g., a spouse or friend?
Due to the nature of the program and the single-occupancy accommodation, spouses and/or friends are not allowed to stay on campus with participants.
What are the accommodations while I attend the program?
Single-occupancy rooms located on-campus are included in the program tuition fee. Each room is equipped with high-speed internet access, with wired and wireless access. Each room also has a private bathroom with toiletries included. HBS encourages participants from outside the USA to bring an adapter that can accommodate 120 volts.
What is the dress code?
HBS requests business casual dress for classes and meals during the program. Since dress codes and terminology vary widely among companies and countries, here are a few examples of what is considered business casual attire: open-necked and collared shirts or blouses and sweaters, khakis, pressed pants, skirts, or dresses, leather shoes or casual walking shoes.
What airport should I fly to for the program?
Harvard Business School is located in Boston, Massachusetts. We recommend flying into Boston Logan International Airport.
How do I prepare for the program?
Once you’ve been accepted into the program and remitted payment, HBS will send you log-in credentials for the online program portal. All logistical information and pre-reading/assignment requirements can be found on that portal.
What happens when the course is over?
After the program, you will receive an invitation to join the HBS-Accion Program Alumni LinkedIn page. You will also receive a one-year subscription to the Harvard Business Review, a photo of the HBS-Accion class, and a certificate of completion.
Accion will also contact program alumni for a program review, quotes to include on our website, as well as referrals for future programs. We also appreciate hearing from alumni regarding what they have learned in the course as it relates to their professional careers.
