Harvard Goes Global

Source : The Crimson
March 21, 2012

 Harvard Business School recently announced the opening of a new classroom in Mumbai, India. The space, designed to mirror Business School classrooms in Boston, will house the school’s executive education programs in India, allowing Harvard to establish a permanent presence in South Asia. This classroom is but the latest addition to the Business School regional centers scattered across the globe.


The Crimson is pleased to see that Harvard is continuing its efforts to expand internationally and become a truly global institution. We are by no means the only American university to seek new horizons in this manner. As higher education becomes global, host countries can only benefit, and we are glad that Harvard is leading in this positive trend.

It goes without saying that American universities can provide foreign countries with a valuable service by establishing operations abroad. The graduates of such institutions can enjoy the benefits of an education comparable to one that they would receive in the United States without having to face the significant barriers, financial and otherwise, that international students must often overcome.

Some have charged that as American universities expand transnationally, they may merely replicate the structures of colonialism in an attempt to gain profit and reputation. This concern should be dismissed; Harvard and its peers are not guided by the mistakes of the past but by a vision of the future. It is true that Western values may clash against local traditions on Harvard’s foreign satellites. But insofar as these traditions involve homophobia, religious intolerance, or other attitudes we would not tolerate in Cambridge, such a clash can lead to positive change.

For all the progress Harvard has made internationally in recent years—much of it dating from Larry Summers’ tenure as president, such as the expansion of study abroad options for undergraduates—more remains to be done. 

Globalization has altered the world in unexpected ways, and it will surely bring more change in years to come. If Harvard is to remain relevant as one of the premiere institutions of higher learning in the world, it must keep up with the times. Because of this, we firmly support the University’s efforts at international expansion.
