110 years ago today, the world’s most prestigious business school was founded. Harvard Business School is known for its long standing entrepreneurial culture and for also delivering some of the world’s most celebrated business people.

Harvard University basically had a vote in favour of establishing Harvard Business School by the humanities faculty. It is now known as an independent unit solely focused on business-related subjects.
