Clear Admit Publishes Free, Objective Overviews of 27 Leading MBA Programs for Business School Applicants
We are excited to announce the release of the Clear Admit “School Snapshots” series, a new publication line designed to give prospective applicants concise overviews of leading MBA programs – for free – as they begin the process of finding the right business school.
This new series of guides was created especially for early-stage applicants with limited knowledge of MBA programs at leading business schools. Each School Snapshot provides essential information about a given school’s MBA program, including faculty, curriculum, campus life, career services and job placement statistics, and more. Together, the Snapshots provide an excellent, objective introduction to MBA programs in the United States and abroad, making them the perfect resource for candidates who are trying to determine which business schools’ strengths and offerings best fit their needs and goals.
“The Clear Admit School Snapshots deliver need-to-know information that’s easy to read and free of marketing spin,” says Clear Admit Co-founder Graham Richmond. “They’re the perfect way for applicants to learn about a school before delving into deeper research.”
The Snapshots series is the most recent addition to Clear Admit’s line of critically acclaimed publications, which also includes more extensive School Guides, Interview Guides, and School Selection Guides, as well as a Strategy Series providing step-by-step guidance through the application process. School Snapshots of more than two dozen top MBA programs are now available for free download in the Clear Admit Shop.

It’s time again for another edition of Trivia Tuesday, our weekly examination of the programs and opportunities that differentiate the leading MBA programs. This week we take a peek into the Clear Admit School Guide to Harvard Business School to share an excerpt on HBS’s Entrepreneurship Initiative.
“Harvard offers students an array of opportunities to study entrepreneurship. In addition to analyzing cases on varied start-up enterprises during the RC year, all RC students are required to take the course The Entrepreneurial Manager. In their second year, students may choose from over 20 courses and field study opportunities offered on the topic.
“Nearly 40 of the school’s faculty members are part of the Entrepreneurial Management Unit, and more than 45 other faculty members conduct research in the area. In 1997, Harvard launched a California Research Center in Menlo Park, near Palo Alto, to serve as a resource for faculty members investigating business issues in Silicon Valley. Research conducted from this base has resulted in the composition of over 200 cases on technology and investment in myriad start-ups. Continue reading…
It’s time again for Trivia Tuesday, our weekly look at the programs, resources and opportunities that differentiate the leading business schools. Today we take a peek into the Clear Admit School Guide to the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley, and share an excerpt on the resources offered to students interested in pursuing a career in entrepreneurship.
“Aspiring entrepreneurs at Haas may take advantage of a variety of academic and extracurricular resources to support their goals. The school’s entrepreneurship offerings, including the Certificate in Entrepreneurship, are organized through the Lester Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation. The Lester Center was founded in 1991 to serve as the focus for the study and promotion of innovation and new enterprise development at UC Berkeley. Its busy calendar of events provides numerous learning opportunities for students interested in areas such as venture capital, social entrepreneurship, and technology/biotechnology enterprises.

It’s time once again for Trivia Tuesday, our regular feature sharing special programs offered at the leading business schools. This week we take a peek into the Clear Admit School Guide to Kellogg and share an excerpt on Kellogg’s opportunities in the area of entrepreneurship.

The class is designed as an experiential learning opportunity for students who want to explore the investment landscape firsthand. Continue reading…
It’s time again for another edition of Trivia Tuesday, our weekly examination of the programs and opportunities that differentiate the leading MBA programs. This week we take a peek into the Clear Admit School Guide to Harvard Business School, and share an excerpt on HBS’s Healthcare Initiative.
“The Healthcare Initiative was established in 2005 in response to rapid changes in the healthcare field. In addition to driving faculty research on the subject, the Initiative facilitates networking and recruiting for internship and full-time positions through its relationships with more than 50 healthcare organizations. Harvard’s Healthcare Club is billed one of the largest clubs on campus, and hosts an annual conference open to students and industry professionals, and two others to which alumni are invited to discuss developments in the field.
Though there is no RC [Required Curriculum] course devoted to the topic, healthcare cases are interspersed throughout the first-year curriculum. The Elective Curriculum features five elective classroom courses, field-based learning opportunities, and cross-registration opportunities with the Harvard School of Public Health, Harvard Law School and the Kennedy School of Government. The school also offers healthcare-related programs during January Term. These programs address specific industry topics, such as Health, Science and Business, Innovation in Consumer-Driven Healthcare, and Value-Based Healthcare Delivery. As is the case across the HBS curriculum, there is no formal major in healthcare. This is in contrast to Wharton’s longstanding Healthcare Management major, which offers students a formal, highly structured course of study throughout the two years of their MBA studies.
In addition to curricular and experiential opportunities in healthcare, Harvard also provides financial support to students interested in the field.”
To continue reading about the Healthcare Initiative at Harvard Business School, and to find out about healthcare fellowships and more, take a look at the Clear Admit School Guide to Harvard Business School.
For those who are interested in pursuing a career in healthcare and want to learn more about the different healthcare-specific programs and opportunities available at each school, check out the Clear Admit Career Guide to Healthcare.
