Daily Life

From the moment participants enter the classroom, they are quickly immersed in an active and engaging experience. Cases are presented by dynamic faculty and case discussions are not only informative, but lively and entertaining. Participants often find the learning process continues outside of the classroom in their discussions with peers over meals and networking breaks.

A typical day starts with an overview of what’s to come, or reflections on yesterday’s sessions. Following the daily welcome, participants can expect to dive into 3-4 case discussions, lectures or workshops over the course of the day. Regularly scheduled networking breaks are scheduled throughout the day, and a lunch break provides opportunity to further connect with faculty and fellow participants. participate in a full morning of case discussion, 30 minute break, and lecture. Some evenings include a program-sponsored dinner, but on “open evenings” participants are encouraged to explore all that the Greater Boston Area has to offer.


Accommodation and most meals are included in the program fee. All arrangements, except for travel and ground transportation, will be made by Executive Education administration upon acceptance into the program.

Program participants enrolled in a Cambridge-based program will reside at the Sheraton Commander, located a few blocks from Harvard Law School campus.
