For many of you who have taken an HBX program, the social learning component is a highlight of your experience. The HBX team is excited to invite all CORe credential holders and HBX certificate holders to campus for ConneXt 2017, where you can meet up with other HBXers, hear from faculty and business executives, and experience a day on the beautiful Harvard Business School campus. HBX ConneXt 2017 will be held on Saturday, May 6th.
Registration is now open and is first-come, first-serve. Check your email or look in your cohort's private Facebook group for the link to register.
Interested to learn more about ConneXt? Two past participants blogged about their experiences at last year's event. In My HBX Journey: Why I Took CORe, and You Should Too!, Sam Campbell touched on the importance of forming lasting connections with fellow students:
"These accomplished adventurers you will meet are CEO’s of Silicon Valley startups, aids in Washington, DC, and interns at Facebook. They are world changers, to say the least. So, don’t just grow your LinkedIn profile – communicate with these people. Network. Establish relationships."
Kayla Lewkowicz spoke to the diversity of HBX students in The 5 Most Inspiring Moments from HBX ConneXt:
"Alumni traveled from as far as Australia and as close as Allston, from all walks of life, work experiences, and backgrounds. Together in one room, you could really see how much we had to learn from one another."
Our Executive Director, Patrick Mullane, also wrote about his experiences with ConneXt in The Power of Community:
"We saw digital world relationships become physical world friendships. We saw how helping peers online led to bonding with colleagues offline. We saw what I believe is the beginning of something very special."
Mark your calendars for a day of learning, networking, and community-building. We look forward to welcoming you to campus in May!
