The Mission of the HBS Club of New York is to Make a Difference and to Support Harvard Business School by Engaging Alumni, Impacting Community, Fostering Leadership and Lifelong Learning.
Founded in 1920, the HBS Club of NY is the alumni organization for the approximately 10,000 HBS alumni residing in the Greater NY area. We are a unique and powerful platform for alumni of Harvard Business School to use their leadership skills to make a meaningful difference. In addition, we provide lifelong learning and a great way to stay in touch with the HBS community.
The HBS Club of NY operates a remarkably wide range of activities that benefit our alumni, the NY community, and HBS. These include organizing over 100 events annually, the majority with C-Suite speakers, and providing substantial pro bono consulting services to nonprofits. We are also deeply engaged in the entrepreneurship community through our Angel investing group and our Alumni Startups program. In addition, we fund scholarships and fellowships for several important HBS programs.
We are a vibrant community. Our activities are conducted by approximately 400 alumni volunteers. We hope you’ll get involved. In addition, please join as a member to receive many benefits, including discounted event pricing and exclusive invitations.
Welcome to our community!
