The HBS Club of New York fosters the professional and personal development of its members through continuing education activities, exchange of ideas and experiences with other HBS alumni, and service to the community and School.


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.

From Our President

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 with fellow alumni in areas of mutual interest.

The HBS Club of NY offers a remarkably wide range of activities that benefit our alumni, the NY community, and HBS.  These include over 100 events annually, the majority with C-Suite speakers; pro bono consulting services to nonprofits, local small businesses, and start-ups; angel investing; and Alumni Forums. 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 become one.  In addition, please join us as a contributing member to support our mission.

Welcome to our community!

Clare Peeters, MBA 2000
President, HBS Club of New York

HBS Community Values

At Harvard Business School, leadership and values are inseparable. The teaching of ethics is explicit, and community values of mutual respect, honesty and integrity, and personal accountability support the HBS learning environment.

The mission of Harvard Business School is to educate leaders who make a difference in the world. Achieving this mission requires an environment of trust and mutual respect, free expression and inquiry, and a commitment to truth, excellence, and lifelong learning.  HBS community values are a set of guiding principles for all that we do wherever we are and with everyone we meet.

Students, program participants, faculty, staff, and alumni accept these principles when they join this community. In doing so, they agree to abide by the following Community Values:

  • Respect for the rights, differences, and dignity of others
  • Honesty and integrity in dealing with all members of the community
  • Accountability for personal behavior

The HBS Club of New York should be a living model of these values. To this end, community members have a personal responsibility to integrate these values into every aspect of their experience. Through our personal commitment to these values, we can create an environment in which all can achieve their full potential.

The HBS Club of NY will adopt these values and work to ensure volunteers, officers, directors, and staff comply.
