Resolving to be Happy: HBS students could learn to settle a little more

In the wake of the financial crisis, University of Texas professor Robert Prentice proposed an overhaul of business school rankings based on long-term happiness rather than post-MBA salaries. “Any sensible person would rather be happy than rich,” Prentice wrote in 2009. “Those who choose to attend business school on the assumption that an MBA will…

How Things Work: Machine Learning

It all started with the TOM case on Watson. After a class-long discussion on what is Toronto, Anton and I were amazed by how we were able to cover one of the greatest machine learning triumphs in human history without actually talking much about machine learning. When Anton started planning for the new Harbus column…

From the Editors’ desk

HBS students ought to stop taking themselves so seriously With April comes the annual joke issue of the Harbus. We hope you enjoyed its comedic exterior and that it lured you deeper into the issue to read the more usual, serious content therein. Somewhere in there is a metaphor for the way teaching should work…

The MBA Tax Deduction

One of the gray areas that the LCA curriculum does not cover is deducting the cost of MBA tuition for tax purposes. Every year in the United States, a select portion of MBA students deduct educational expenses including tuition and fees, books, equipment, software and miscellaneous school supplies on their tax returns. The result is…

Memoirs of an EC

Sasha Pang’s Three Most Important Lessons From Business School Have Nothing To Do With Business In August 2015, my husband and I packed ourselves and our beloved cockapoo into our SUV, and drove from San Francisco to Boston.

Critical Seasoning

A monthly feature in The Harbus reviewing the most interesting bars and restaurants near HBS The squares of Cambridge have always served as hubs for the local neighborhoods. To the west lies Harvard’s posh polish and to the east Kendall’s industrial gleam, but between them sits Central Square, the slightly grittier middle child. What Central…

Why Facebook’s Algorithms are Destroying Democracy

According to Pew Research, 61 percent of millennials use Facebook as their primary source for news about politics and government. The implications this could have for democracy’s underpinnings should not be underestimated. In disrupting the fundamental structures behind traditional information creation, distribution and consumption, social media has been one of the Internet’s most radical and innovative…

A new feature in The Harbus reviewing the most interesting bars and restaurant near HBS Restaurant Review: Alden & Harlow Given the abundance of New American restaurants in this town (and a subsequent dearth of originality), you might be forgiven for thinking that Alden & Harlow is just another in the glut of gastropubs.

Dear Harby: The Advice Column for MBAs

  Dear Harby, I have a section-mate who is the consummate quiet talker and I can never understand her. Despite my strenuous use of hand signals that my section has implemented to inform people when they should speak louder in class, she never does – in fact, she seems to enjoy brushing the class’s concerns…

The Macroeconomics of American Populism

Opposing Views on Affirmative Action

The Case For Affirmative Action He who is different from me does not impoverish me – he enriches me. Affirmative action is a catchphrase whose use has been corrupted by politics, businesses, and academic institutions pushing forth their own agendas. It has made national headlines as the subject of Supreme Court cases, yet it is…

Learning from the Trump Phenomenon: How Much of the 2016 Election was a Recall on Harvard?

A pickup truck rolled through Harvard Square on the morning of Wednesday, Nov. 9. A man in the truck bed waved a “Make America Great Again!” banner and the passengers yelled at anyone within earshot. Even if you couldn’t make out words, the tone – somewhere between energized and vindictive – was enough. They were…

Trump Won. Now What?

Losing sucks, but this election felt markedly different than anything most of us had ever faced. As Americans, we were fighting to define the soul of our country, and the man supported by the Klu Klux Klan (KKK) won the fight. The man that’s been accused of physically assaulting our daughters, mothers and sisters swept…

Empathy Matters

These reflections were written in reaction to the tragedies that took place over the summer, but they are especially relevant given the recent bombings in NY/ NJ and the deaths of Tyre King, Terrance Crutcher and Keith Lamont Scott. My clock stopped shortly after July 4th with the murders of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling,…

Trump, Brexit and Political Overhaul

    It’s about time we build Government-as-a-Service Can we just take a minute to talk about what happened this summer?

Pokémon Go or Pokémon Go Away

Pokémon is taking the world by storm. For many, it’s been an addictive game that brings back just the right amount of childish nostalgia, but for others, the game is a zombie-inducing virus that’s infected their friends with the mindless obsession to “catch em’ all”. Here at The Harbus, we conducted a woefully non-scientific poll…

Communicating through Change, Challenge, and Chaos; The Education of Tom Strickland

   What do brands like Target, Theranos, UnitedHealth, and Vanderbilt University have in common with the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Columbine High School Massacre? All were the subjects of intense press coverage, and in each case the man brought in to weather the media maelstrom was Tom Strickland.  A lawyer by training, Strickland served…
