The program is part of the league's initiative to assist players in preparing for their post-playing careers. Since the program's inception in 2005, more than 700 players have participated.
Former star defensive back Troy Vincent, now the NFL's vice-president of player engagement, attended the program himself. He says it has "assisted players — myself included — and their families in making smarter business decisions while inspiring others to go back to school for an MBA."
The Harvard program runs from March 19-23 and the Northwestern classes are April 1-5.
