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…

Zoom’s first investor and noted kiteboarding venture capitalist analyzes the company’s origins; Philip Levinson (HKS ’12) reports. Wall Street is buzzing about the recent IPO of Zoom Video, with its market cap now exceeding $17 billion. But the 2011 origins of the company were quite inauspicious.

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…

Dealing with Anxiety

Recently two former CEOs of large multinational companies (one British and one American) were talking about the most serious mental health problems that exist in the large American and British universities they each chair.

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) was held in Las Vegas between January 8 and 12, 2019, and I attended the event with some of my HBS classmates.

He was covering the 110-year history of the School as part of the first-ever SA town hall, highlighting the school’s slam dunks while outlining areas for improvement.

The WSA and Manbassadors Team Up to Survey Student Views on Gender Inequity

What does feminism mean to you? This is the question that we—the leadership of the Women’s Student Association and the HBS Manbassador Program—asked our peers in a recent survey. The above words and phrases are representative of the over 400 anonymous responses we received from HBS students. Some of these students self-identify as feminists, while…

Practicing Leadership in Corporate Accountability

During RC year, I often wondered why in-class conversations about ethical leadership were so divorced from the rest of the HBS curriculum. Case method discussions, cropped to fit narrow topics to build a foundation of specific technical competencies, are an excellent pedagogical means for most RC topics. Leadership and Corporate Accountability (LCA), in my opinion,…

Cumnock Hall – Broken bones, bruised brains, and battered hearts – these are the injuries that have plagued the skiing and snowboarding population at HBS this year.

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…
