Help, I’m a FOMO Sapiens!

Patrick J. McGinnis (MBA ’04), who created the term FOMO while a student at HBS, helps Michael Deliakis (MBA ’20) understand and overcome FOMO. It was titled “Social Theory at HBS: McGinnis’ Two FOs” and printed in the Humor section of the Harbus in May 2004. Fast forward 15 years: today, the terms FOMO and…

Perspectives: Engaging with and Embracing Differences at HBS & Beyond

Join us on November 13 in Klarman for the Campus-Wide Discussion. Can you respect, and perhaps even love, those who have fundamentally different views from you? Today, we’re living in a time of heightened polarization, when people are not engaging constructively with those who differ from themselves. The result is tribal politics, ideological siloing, and…

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: From HBS to the World Beyond

This month, RCs head towards their internship summers, while ECs go forth into “the real world.” The near-term fates of these two classes are starkly different. How can one editors’ note be meaningful for both of them? Perhaps a modified version of the all-too-familiar (to us) Mary Oliver question can be illuminating. Tell us, what…

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…

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…

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…
