HBS Alumni Leaders Organize 9/20 “Global Climate Strike” Rally at HBS

Roger Shamel (MBA ’74) explains why some HBS alumni are worried about climate change, and why you might worry too. “Leaders making a difference” is the hoped-for outcome of the Harvard Business School mission, “To educate leaders who make a difference in the world.” And perhaps no greater difference is needed today than the difference…

In the Face of Unsettling Truths

The Harvard admissions trial has shed light on some troubling facts that must be addressed. This October, Lawrence Bacow was inaugurated as the 29th President of Harvard University. In his inaugural address, President Bacow, quoting the theologian Reinhold Neibuhr, urged, “We must always seek the truth in our opponent’s errors, and the errors in our…

The Model Minority Paradox

Exploring Asian identity and minority politics beyond the SFFA v. Harvard lawsuit On Lee’s first call with his MBA admissions coach, she told him, bluntly, that he’d drawn one of the worst hands for admission to HBS: Asian-American, heterosexual, male, with a background in finance and technology. There were simply far too many people “like…

We need to talk about the future of work

Work has been a central concern of Harvard Business School since the first days of this campus. On June 4, 1927, with construction complete, faculty and students gathered for the dedication ceremony. The campus was much smaller then. Only Baker Library, Morgan Hall and the six HBS dorms stood. Spangler, Aldrich and Klarman lay far…

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…

The Golden State

The Golden State

It is the season for the EC to close in on career choices and the RC to lock in internships. The realization is dawning that HBS is actually a twenty month experience that quickly is over. You must have questions. What industry? What functional area? What company? Compensation in the first few years? Experiences of…

From the Editors’ Desk: No More “Lost Einsteins”

For all the attention directed toward startups in an era of record venture capital financing, massive appetite for early-stage investments, and an ever-growing club of VC-backed “unicorns” crossing billion-dollar valuations, entrepreneurial activity by MBAs from leading programs has lagged far behind. Entrepreneurship among recent MBA graduates has reached its lowest level in eight years, falling…

Chasing a Sense of Purpose: In Healthcare, and Beyond

On a brisk January day in San Francisco, California, 10,000 attendees from more than 450 companies spanning medical devices, healthcare service providers, and pharmaceuticals piled into the heart of the city to attend the annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference. The days were filled by a rapid fire of ideas in innovation and investing—from how to…

Impossible Burger Takes Boston

Unappetizing, dry, bland: these are the adjectives that come to mind when we hear the phrase “veggie burger” and start imagining that scary frankenpatty. Insert the Impossible Burger: a burger that bleeds and sizzles like beef but, since it’s made entirely from plants, with none of the downsides. Targeted at meat eaters, it is one…

A Macro Framework For Valuing Crypto – All About Velocity

Even the most ardent cryptocurrency enthusiast will usually admit, in a vulnerable moment or after a few drinks, that parts of the cryptocurrency market are likely overvalued, and perhaps enormously so. But the question of precisely how cryptocurrencies should be valued is rarely discussed at HBS. Given the level of investment in the space, this…

Enabling Ecosystems

Many powerful and influential men are being called out and finally being held to account for egregious behavior towards women that range from truly monstrous to profoundly stupid and wrong.  This is long overdue.  The history of mankind has a few enduring themes.  Some are inspiring, and some are discouraging.  The fact that men have…

Over-Leveraging America’s Future: Business Leaders Must Do Better

Roaming the halls of Harvard Business School over the past few weeks, you would never know it, but the U.S. Senate just voted on one of the most consequential pieces of legislation of our time. Early Saturday morning, the Senate passed a tax “overhaul” that dramatically lowers corporate tax rates, balloons the federal deficit, reduces…

Let’s talk about family wealth

To get into HBS, family money matters. It’s an uncomfortable truth. “At 38 colleges in America,” The New York Times provocatively declared earlier this year, “more students came from the top 1 percent of the income scale than from the entire bottom 60 percent.” Stated another way, a child born into the top 1 percent…

How Should Business Leaders Address Global Climate Change?

Alumni and students pose answers to the question: Where’s the Leadership on Climate Change, Harvard? In the past several years the Harbus has run an alumni-sponsored series of at least nine ads and articles urging more action on climate change. Seven HBS alumni have joined forces to make this happen. The latest of these, “Where’s…

President Trump has nominated Jerome Powell, member of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors since 2012 and former partner of private equity giant The Carlyle Group, as the next Chair of the Fed.

DACA And The Economics Of Immigration

President Trump defended his decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program as an effort to promote “safe communities, a robust middle class, and economic fairness for all Americans.” In his statement, the President painted his stance as simultaneously shrewd and compassionate. He pointed a finger at roughly 800,000 undocumented immigrants brought…

Manning Didn’t Deserve Rescinded Harvard Visiting Fellowship

Manning Invite Widened the Civilian-Military Divide at Harvard In honoring former US Army Specialist Chelsea Manning by naming her a Visiting Fellow, the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School opened wide a wound that leaders at Harvard have diligently worked to close in recent years: the civilian-military divide.
