W. Carl Kester

Under Professor Kester's leadership of HBS's academic programs, a new course on leadership, corporate accountability, and business ethics, and another on entrepreneurial management, were introduced into the MBA Program’s first-year required curriculum; the required finance curriculum was redesigned; and the elective curriculum in the Program’s second year was rebalanced and expanded to improve course development opportunities for faculty and course selection options for students. The MD/MBA, MBA/MPP and MBA/MPA-ID joint degree programs between HBS and Harvard Medical School and Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, respectively, were also created and launched under his supervision.
