Klarman’s First HBS Show Impresses

HBS Executive Education’s Nathaniel Koven reviews No Clue. The 46th HBS Show, No Clue: The Case You Can’t Prepare For, was always going to go down in HBS history as the first theatrical production in the recently-completed Klarman Hall, but what a smashing first it was. This production, which ran April 8–10, was an unalloyed…

From the Editors’ Desk

C’est le provisoire qui dure (“it’s the makeshift that lasts”). Nestled near the end of the case that RCs were assigned for Friday’s BGIE class, this adage was a thought-provoking highlight amidst a dense and challenging account of Bretton Woods and the liberal world order spanning 15½ pages (plus 14 exhibits—ECs, don’t you miss BGIE?)….

My Ancestors’ Wildest Dreams

My good friend and classmate, Leila Meliani (MBA ’20), tipped off Black History Month with an amazing reflection on her family history. As she told her story, I couldn’t help but cry and reflect on the pain my ancestors endured so I could be considered human. Even more serendipitous was the shirt she wore which…

From the Editors’ Desk: What We’re Thankful For

With Thanksgiving in the rearview mirror and the start of the holiday season, it’s a time of reflection here at The Harbus. Beneath the cascade of activity in the final weeks of the semester—a jam-packed agenda of year-end socials, internship applications, papers, and exams—there is a deep undercurrent of gratitude among our editorial team.

Lessons to business leaders from Japanese companies: A conversation with HBS Professor Hirotaka Takeuchi

For many decades, Japan’s corporate culture has been an enigma to many. Even more puzzling still was how a small, resource-poor nation grew at one point to become the world’s second largest economy. The Harbus met with HBS Professor Hirotaka Takeuchi to demystify what makes Japan unique and what lessons could be drawn. Maintaining a…

Here’s how business can save the world

Skeptical readers of the Harbus have probably moved on to the next article after reading this headline, but for those optimists who have decided to stay, I recently had the pleasure of attending a talk about climate change and the environment across the river.

HBS Welcomes New Outdoor Art Installations

Every academic year, HBS rotates some of the outdoor art pieces on campus to keep the campus scenery fresh and give students new ideas to reflect upon.  The parallel between art and business is not obvious, but both push current ways of thinking into new territory. Businesses develop new ways of creating economic value while…

RC Feels: what RCs think of HBS so far

First month into the RC year, we gulped at Cranberry, admired Dell, decreased value of Netflix & chill, went nuts positioning (Planters), climbed Everest, all whilst missing Toby. But what do RCs think of HBS one month in? Through several direct / indirect conversations (and maybe a few Instagram stories), I have come to the…

Africa Is Not a Country

‘What would you do if you were Africa?’ This question said it all to me. I came to HBS excited to learn more about the role of business in a global context. After having worked and lived in a few different countries on the African continent, I expected to meet many classmates from the continent…

From the Editors’ Desk: To the Horizon

It’s May at Harvard, ostensibly the end of a long Boston winter with the season’s last snowfall still large in the rearview mirror. Warmth and sunshine have arrived at last, just in time for final exams, international travel for FIELD Global Immersion, and Commencement. Students seemingly inevitably find that time here slips away so quickly—from…
