HBS’s Technology Skill Set Gap

“One of the things about IT is that people want to shed it and make believe it’s not their responsibility. There’s a temptation to outsource it and get rid of it and leave it to the experts to take care of. Business people need to be systems literate.” – Jamie Dimon, Chairman, President, & CEO…

Crowd-funding for impact in Nicaragua

Neural tube defects are a type of devastating and often lethal birth defects that can be prevented when mothers take folic acid before and during early-pregnancy. But neural tube defects arise during the 4th week of development, and with more than half of pregnancies around the world unplanned, folic acid supplements often reach pregnant women…

A View : Contextual Awareness

The current issue of Harvard Business Review contains an article called Focused Leaders written by Daniel Goleman that is worth reading and reflecting upon. Goleman makes the point that most effective leaders cultivate a “triad of awareness” as the editor’s note describes to include oneself, others, and the greater context. Much has been written about…

Thanks, Thanksgiving

Done. Dusted. Plate licked clean. Just as fast as it came along, Thanksgiving now recedes into the past like F. Scott Fitzgerald’s boats against the current. Unnecessary literary allusions aside (and didn’t the Baz Luhrmann version just suck?), not only did it make the stomach ache, it also made the mind think. Being from the…

Raamin Noodles: How to Black Friday

Well folks, November has come and gone, and with it has gone not only the strongest batch of mustaches this campus has seen since the late 1950s, but also that venerable American holiday we know as Thanksgiving. For the somehow-still-confused internationals in the audience, Thanksgiving is the most uniquely American of all holidays because it…

The MBA Dress Code

By now, the HBS student body has finalized its sartorial transformation into the peculiar combination of waterproof boots and Burberry scarves that can only be described as “British peasant farmer couture”. As this transition takes place, it becomes clearer and clearer that despite the changing of the seasons and the passing of time, a unifying…

Raamin Noodles

Dude. You gotta chill. This hallowed institution to which you have entrusted two years of your life, one hundred and twenty thousand of your dollars, and uncounted liver cells is, in fact, very different from the job you just left. Effort isn’t rewarded the same way, 360-degree feedback is considerably less frequent (FIELD 1 doesn’t…

Finding Love at HBS—Going Digital

Dear readers, I have a confession to make: I have tried online dating, and I liked it. Who needs a bar when you can search for a soulmate from the comfort of your own couch? Who needs pickup lines when you have all the time in the world to craft the perfect, witty, feels-like-we’ve-known-each-other-forever message?…

Gravity: A Devastatingly Handsome Film

Newton would be amazed. You will be… Anticipation is a dangerous thing. We’ve all been through the “Oh my God it’s going to be so unbelievably awesome” and then been hit in the face with Star Wars: Episode 1, or The Matrix: Reloaded (maybe it’s the colons, I dunno). In general, the more you’re itching…

How to Build the Perfect Resume

After helping out with Resumania this past week, I encountered a lot of first-years who were confused and disillusioned at the thought of having to make another resume this quickly into the school year. I don’t mean confused as in, hey where is the Spangler Meredith Room for Resumania? No, I mean they seemed truly…

She had a first rate undergraduate education, had been the marketing manager for the largest snowshoe brand in America, graduated with a concentration in marketing from Kellogg, and had interned at Starbucks the previous summer. She was…

Sierra Leone is more than just blood diamonds and a civil war. It once glowed as the intellectual epicenter of Africa. It is teeming with world-renowned writers, playwrights, musicians and scientists. These are the stories Evoque – a lifestyle magazine I founded in 2013 – strives to tell. After working for several years in finance…

For the Love of Missing Out

How was your day today? Did you make the brown bag lunch with Professor Xavier, catch that talk by the CEO of ShamWow, schmooze at the Rhythmic Gymnastics Club Ice Cream Social, fit in boat races at the Boathouse for section drinks, and drop by the Black, White, Yellow, Pink, and Periwinkle parties…all with a…

Game of Stones

During the first day of The Entrepreneurial Manager (TEM) last year we learned about Bob Reiss, an HBS graduate who made a small fortune on a board game he published in the early 1980’s.  I vividly remember getting Cold Called in this class and being asked “Is it good or bad to be in the…

Individual Dressing Rooms: Excerpts from Michel Anteby’s new book, Manufacturing Morals “Along with meeting in teaching groups and sharing teaching plans, faculty members also prepare their sessions individually. Though choreographed and performed privately, these are School-specific routines in which much uniformity still prevails. Whether at home or at the School, time is always set aside…

Fleeting Bliss in Beirut

‘Dream as if you’ll life forever, live as if you’ll die tomorrow’   Certainly one of the most over-memed (or ‘grammed) quotes out there. Gandhi must be pissed Yet it is also seemingly the most apt way to describe Lebanon’s approach to happiness.   It was perhaps a rather foolhardy visit – the foreign…

A Beginner’s Guide to Dating at HBS

First, like all things at HBS, know that this is a competitive event. There are winners and losers. There are teams. There are rules, regulations, penalties. There is media buzz. There will be mistakes made, trades, roster cuts, and star performances from the players you least expected. The season will have its ups and downs…
