In January 1954, U.S. Senator John F. Kennedy met with YPO members attending a seminar at Harvard Business School (HBS) and spoke about how the country could avoid an economic recession.
The YPO-HBS tradition has continued for more than 60 years as YPO members participate in the annual Harvard Presidents’ Program. This legendary program provides members with a weeklong immersion of case study-focused learning with top Harvard professors.
YPO founder Ray Hickok wanted the opportunity to bounce ideas off of a group of business peers. The Harvard program epitomizes the true peer networking experience in an environment that fosters real business growth.
