Harvard Business School has one of the most recognized MBA programs in the world.

Deirdre Leopold, executive director of MBA Admissions & Financial Aid at HBS, will be on hand to answer your questions about everything from writing a great essay to the first-year workload.

For more than two decades, Leopold has been a member of Harvard Business School's Admissions Board. During that time she has been involved in all areas of the board's activities. A graduate of Columbia University, she earned her MBA in 1980 from Harvard, where she was co-president of the Women's Student Assn. Before attending HBS, Leopold worked in New York as a portfolio manager at Merrill Lynch (MER).
