The Harvard Senior Administrator Fellowships for Executive Education allow qualifying staff to participate in the University’s Executive Education and Continuing Education programs, often at no cost.*
Harvard’s Executive Education programs attract accomplished leaders from around the globe who come to learn from our renowned faculty and each other, while addressing their strategic challenges. Program topics include leadership, negotiation, management, strategy, and operations. Eligible staff are encouraged to apply for a fellowship in an area that will advance their thinking and professional practice.
