Cambridge, MA — Harvard Division of Continuing Education‘s Professional Development is proud to announce, effective immediately, we are changing our name to Professional & Executive Development to better reflect our expanded focus on senior leadership.

While we continue to serve professionals at all levels, we recognize the importance of adapting to this evolving landscape and offering exceptional learning opportunities tailored to the evolving needs of senior and executive leaders.

This carefully curated set of programs offers leaders the opportunity to stay current, advance their executive skills, and learn in a global environment.
