The MBA programs offers an internship course for students interested in gaining graduate-level industry experience for credit.
Based on HBS’s academic policy, students can only participate in three semesters of internship courses OR 3 credits, whichever comes first (see the information below regarding the maximum internship policy and choosing the number of credits).
Only 3 internship credits can be counted toward the MBA degree. Therefore, MBA students should use the following advice when selecting how many credits to enroll in:
MBA students are only allowed to enroll in a maximum THREE internship semesters OR 3 credits (whichever comes first) according to HBS policy.
Once the maximum has been reached, students are no longer eligible for an internship course.
International Students Only: Since the internship course is the only HBS course that requires CPT, international students can only receive CPT for a maximum of THREE semesters. Please keep this in mind as you plan your credits and academic courses.
