So fun to welcome these amazing athletes to the Harvard family yesterday! They crushed it in their case discussions during the #CrossoverIntoBusiness kick-off. And kept things 100% serious throughout the day, as you can see. ??? I can’t wait to see how far they’ll come this semester. ? #Harvardfamily #HarvardHBS #lifeatHBS (By the way, yes, I am wearing yellow sneakers. All will be explained later!)
The program is open to professional athletes and helps the ballers develop their business skills by working alongside MBA student mentors. The course is also set up to accommodate the athletes’ busy schedules. The course has previously been completed by Caron Butler, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade.
