Harvard Business School (HBS) is very possibly the first name that springs to mind when one hears the term ‘MBA’. 🙂

Harvard is consistently ranked among the best B-schools in the world and is one of the most powerful brand names in this field. According to a recent study by US News, ~20% of the CEOs of Fortune 100 companies are Harvard alumni. George W. Bush, P. Chidamabaram, Rahul Bajaj, and Naina Lal Kidwai are some other well-known Harvard alumni.

Located in Boston, Massachusetts, United States, the school offers a full-time MBA program, doctoral programs, and many executive education programs. Harvard Business School follows the motto of VERITAS, which means ‘truth’.
