Research Project Concerning Students From Minority Groups. Final Report.
McArthur, John H.
The motivation of this project was a desire on the part of the Harvard Business School to augment equality of career opportunities in management for minority group members and to insure expanded managerial training so that new capabilities would be developed to match new opportunities. This document describes programs undertaken by the faculty and administration of the school in the areas of recruitment, selection, financial aid, curriculum, and career development. Programs are placed in context to show how special efforts for minorities relate to efforts being made along the same lines to serve the entire school population. Observation by members of the faculty and administration of the minority experience, both while at Harvard Business School and on leaving the school, seemed to indicate that when objective measures were applied to various aspects of the program experience, the experience of minority students did not differ to any significant degree from that of their nonminority counterparts having the same background.
