GovernmentExecutive.com Spotlights New KSG/HBS Joint Degree Program

May 21, 2007

The newly announced Harvard Kennedy School/Harvard Business School Joint Degree program in business and government is the subject of an article in the May 16, 2007 edition of GovernmentExecutive.com.
The integrated program will prepare graduate students to work in positions of influence at the interface of business, government, and nonprofit organizations, dealing with challenges in such critical areas as health care, the environment, economic development, and government regulation. Students would spend one year at the Kennedy School, another full year at the Business School, and the third year split between both schools.
Kennedy School Dean David T. Ellwood is quoted in the article, stating "graduates of this new program will be able to address some of the world's most pressing issues -- ones that call for collaboration between the public and private sectors and require leaders who can effectively operate in both areas."
Access the article, "Generation 'We' — The Awakened Giant," on the National Journal web site.
An April 5 Boston Globe editorial, "Learning to be of Two Minds," also discusses the new program.
