Transform ideas into positive change.


When your time at Harvard Kennedy School comes to an end, it doesn't mean your connection to the school is through. What you take away from here will resonate in every aspect of your professional life and make you a better leader.

During these rigorous and highly interactive executive programs, you and your peers will be challenged to think critically in order to identify feasible solutions to the world’s most complex problems. Hands-on learning with faculty, colleagues and visiting policy experts provide new perspectives on the challenges you face every day.

Based on the reports of past executive program participants, we are confident that you will leave Harvard Kennedy School with a renewed sense of passion for your work, a fortified commitment to the public interest and the ability to transform ideas into positive change and measurable results.

In just a few extraordinary days, you will form a lasting network of new colleagues. This tremendously talented group of peers will become some of your most valuable resources: individuals whom you can contact for ideas, insights and practical advice long after you leave Harvard Kennedy School.
