In the Field

Waking up at 5 a.m. to the sound of woodpeckers, heaving through dirt and jungle in 90-degree heat, seeing the desolate poverty of a hungry child with nothing to wear but a torn rag, and sleeping under a starry blanket (so many stars!) while a gecko stirs next to your ear is not the idea…

HBS Volleyball Starts Season on the Attack

“What do you mean we have to write the numbers in big on the front?” If there is one thing worse than waking up at 8am for a volleyball tournament on Sunday, it’s playing at the picturesque dungeon known as the MIT gym. Needless to say, the HBS Ballers — captained by Eric “Downtown” Brown…

Lime, Sugar, Cacha‡a: A Little Taste of Brazil at HBS

I don’t know about all of you, but I was definitely looking forward to this year’s International Week. It was Friday, the FRC midterm result was out, the learning team project was done, and our over-worked week was ending. In my traditional half-awake-8:35am-state-of-mind, I walked my usual path to Aldrich hall. It felt nice to…

Alumni Connections: The Forgotten Issue

Before the debate over the election, Iraq, and terrorism, few issues got Americans as worked up as the environment. On the one side are people who are worried about pollution, about the disappearance of wildlife and biodiversity, and humans tinkering with global processes. On the other side are people who consider environmental laws and regulations…

Welcome to Viewpoints

A little over a week ago, I had dinner with a sectionmate. As we dined in a Brazilian steak house, sipping iced cold beers and consuming an abundance of grilled steaks, steamed vegetables, and traditional Brazilian beans and rice, the topic of politics and policy came up. Our descent into the conversation was admittedly slow,…

HBS Women Touch the World through International Development

The power was out due to a storm in Curitiba, Brazil, where Barbara Schmidt-Rahmer (MBA ~93) was speaking on the phone, but that had not dimmed her enthusiasm for her work. “I’m really happy with my decision,” she said, referring to her choice a few months back not to return to her Boston-based consulting job…

Latin American Women in Business

03/08/02I usually get asked about the role of Latin American women in business. My response is that my experience has been, in general, very good.

Leonardo Is the Man

It’s been hard getting back into the groove of school.

It would be impossible to capture everything that happened…

Teaching the Europeans to Dance

Not since the mid sixteenth century has South America groaned under the weight of so many enthusiastic Europeans. “Over paid, over sexed and over here” is a complaint among xenophobic Brits, but our traveling troupe encountered no such sentiments in Uruguay, Argentina, and Brazil.
