The realms of aviation and space exploration have always been synonymous as well as complementary. The combined discipline of the two – aerospace - covers flights both within and beyond the Earth’s atmosphere, inspiring mankind to reach further than imagination and push past the boundaries of possible.

The Harvard Business School Aerospace Alumni Group was founded out of that very passion for discovery, and was brought together by a mutual interest in driving the industry forward. Today, the group serves as one of the foremost resources for all matters involving the aerospace world, built on the pillars of Science, Technology, Engineering and Business. Created specifically for alums of HBS, the extended Harvard community, as well as non-Harvard alums, Harvard Business School Aerospace Alumni Group offers an exceptionally lucrative platform for interaction, knowledge-sharing, exchange of ideas, networking and discussing future prospects.

Our mission is to become a prominent, self-sustaining global association focusing on aerospace, providing members and sponsors from the aerospace community with access to world-class resources, information, knowledge and experience that holds value.
