McNay Director Richard Aste is the recipient of the Harvard Business School Club of San Antonio Scholarship
Scholarship presented Dr. Aste with the opportunity to attend Harvard’s Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management (SPNM) Program.

SAN ANTONIO, TX.- McNay director Richard Aste recently returned from Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he attended Harvard Business School’s Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management course , an opportunity made possible by a scholarship from the Harvard Business School Club of San Antonio (HBS Club of San Antonio).

The HBS Club of San Antonio’s mission is to foster camaraderie, community outreach, involvement, and education of alumni of the Harvard Business School in the greater San Antonio and South Texas area. Aste is the first recipient of this notable scholarship which seeks to better prepare the city’s non-profit leaders to serve their communities in more effective ways. Harvard Business School’s alumni have generously provided the scholarship funds with the goal of helping improve the quality of life in San Antonio.

The SPNM program is part of Harvard Business School’s Social Enterprise Initiative flagship program. Each session serves 140+ executives from diverse non-profit backgrounds and nationalities.

Richard Aste is only the third director in the history of the McNay Art Museum, yet his philosophy of marrying artistic excellence with community impact is already leaving a mark at the McNay and San Antonio’s community at large. “The word ‘transformative’ is often tossed around to describe an executive training program,” Aste comments, “but this one was truly life changing. Harvard’s SPNM program provided me, the McNay, and San Antonio with the necessary skills and networks to lead today’s nonprofits across a shifting cultural landscape. I look forward to sharing this powerful resource with the communities we so proudly serve--and empower--at the Museum."

Members of the HBS Club of San Antonio will visit the McNay Art Museum on the evening of July 27, and enjoy a tour of the Museum guided by Aste. The tour will then be followed by a presentation in which Aste will share the ideas, objectives, and potential projects that emerged from his participation in the SPNM program.
