The 2+2 Program was launched in 2007. It gives admitted students a guaranteed berth in a future HBS MBA class, provided they actually graduate from college and get two years of work experience. Accepting the GRE in place of the GMAT makes the application process considerably easier. Deirdre Leopold, managing director of admissions and financial aid, explains:
The HBS 2+2 program is designed to encourage college students to consider business as a career path. Since the GRE is the test they are most familiar with on the road to graduate school, we are pleased to offer it as an option in addition to the GMAT. These students are at the fortunate point in their lives when they are considering a range of career and education options after graduation, and we want to encourage them to see the versatility and value of a Harvard MBA degree.
