With the success of the pilot for the new Overview of Harvard University Finances course, the decision has been made to offer this as an ongoing, bi-monthly course at CWD. Click here to register for Overview of Harvard University Finances.
The Overview of Harvard University Finances course is designed to give a better understanding of Harvard’s financial model, including (1) the University’s revenue and expenditures mix, (2) how our Schools and Units interact on a financial level, and (3) how national trends and external forces on higher education are impacting Harvard. The ultimate goal of this course is to equip University citizens with a broad financial and economic context to be good stewards of Harvard’s resources. The ultimate goal of this class is to better equip community members at every level of the University to make better decisions with the resources we have at our disposal. The course will be taught by representatives from Harvard’s Office of Financial Strategy and Planning.
