Harvard Business School’s 2+2 Program provides students with the opportunity to secure a spot in the prestigious MBA program while gaining valuable work experience. Zoe Bhargava, a current MBA student, shared her experience with the program, shedding light on the benefits of the deferred admissions process.

Bhargava, who was admitted through the 2+2 Program, applied after interning at various technology companies and immersing herself in the entrepreneurial ecosystem at Berkeley. During her deferral years, Bhargava held positions at Twitter in strategic finance, a sports tech startup as a Product Manager, and interned at venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz.

The 2+2 Program allowed Bhargava to confidently switch jobs and gain diverse experiences in tech, startups, and venture capital. She credits the program with providing her the flexibility and opportunities to explore different industries before pursuing her MBA.

Bhargava encourages prospective 2+2 applicants to research the HBS website and consider the unique opportunities available to students in the program. The diverse backgrounds of MBA candidates in the program also provide a valuable network and learning experience.

The HBS 2+2 Program is an attractive option for students in their final year of study who want to gain work experience before enrolling in the MBA program. Bhargava’s success story serves as inspiration for future applicants looking to make the most of their deferral years and set themselves up for a successful career in business.
