Career Development

A degree from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health offers an extraordinary return on investment, both for the students who earn the degrees and the organizations who employ those students.

As a Harvard Chan graduate, you’ll not only have the multidisciplinary knowledge and skills that come with an education from one of the world’s best schools of public health, you’ll be part of a global network of active alumni who are making a difference around the world. Harvard Chan graduates are contributing to and leading health care institutions, government agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and major research laboratories and institutions. Their work is leading to major new research discoveries, innovative programs, and effective public policies. And they’re making a difference for themselves as well.

As an employer of a Harvard Chan graduate, you can be confident you are hiring one of the brightest, most collaborative individuals in public health, mentored by the best faculty in the field and prepared to make a difference in your organization. The talent of our alumni is equaled only by their commitment to improving the health of individuals and communities around the world.
