I'm just a member of a regional Harvard Club. So, am I automatically a member of the HBS Association of Germany e.V.? - What are the differences?

HBS Association of Germany e.V. is the national organization for all Alumni of the Harvard Business School in Germany.
HBS "Clubs" (e.g. the Harvard Club Rhein-Main) are regional organizations which are also open for all other faculties.
You should also become a member of HBS Association of Germany e.V. to benefit from all the advantages of an HBSA membership.

Access, font size & other technical issues...

Access & computer equipment:
This website has been designed for the use with the vast majority of common PC desktop and laptop equipment and screen resolutions of 800x600 pixels and higher. However, it will be particularly suitable for visitors with Internet Explorer 6 and a modern Windows operating system.
Further, most of all pages are optimized with regard to a short load time for the friendly use with a modem or any other slower internet connection.

Font size & accessibility:
This website features resizeable fonts. E.g. in the Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 menu bar choose "View" > "Text Size" to adjust the font size. Even other browsers are supported.

Members area access: 
Your login sessions are kept alive for max. 1 hour. You have to re-login, then. Cookies are used by standard to manage your access rights for the members. Cookies are not required!
When your browser accepts Cookies (most common browsers do that), remember that anyone who has access to your PC will also have all access rights until your session has been closed. 
There are also other good reasons to make always use of the "Logout" button to close a session.

JavaScript... a scripting language needed to make some things more comfortable for you (e.g. search form functions or  a pop-up window management).
You will enjoy that most of all the funcions will even work with JavaScript disabled, like e.g. found in some enterprise environments for security reasons.

If you are sure to have a more common operating system and software (browser) and should meet any problem, please send a brief description of your problem to webmaster @ Thank you!




I'd like to make photo prints from digital pictures featured here. How can I do that?

Now right-klick the resized picture in the new window and choose "Save picture as..." to save the image on your harddisk.

The newsletter is not displayed correctly in my e-mail software. What can I do?

1. If you have similar problems with newsletters from other sources, please...

verify if...

  • your Firewall or Antivirus software is blocking parts of the e-mail (e.g. pictures are not shown) and/or
  • security related settings in your e-mail program or enterprise IT-infrastructure may be responsible for this problem.

In most of all e-mail programs you will find in a "settings" menu an option that sounds similar to "read or receive only text-based e-mails instead of HTML". As our newsletters contain both, HTML-based newsletters with pictures as well as simple Plain Text, in the same e-mail, try to change this option in your e-mail program.

2. If you did not solve the problem, please send the following required information to webmaster @

  • brief description of your problem
  • do you have similar problems with newsletters from other sources? 
  • your e-mail software (e.g. Outlook or Outlook Express)
  • your operating system and version (e.g. Windows 95/98/Me/2000/XP or Mac) 
  • name and version of firewall and/or antivirus software (if you use any)
  • is your computer part of an enterprise network? 

We will try to verify your problem or help you with further information.
