Regards Redux

Several days ago, a romantic interest signed an email, “Regards.” At first, I didn’t give the closing much thought. However, as time marched on and I read the email again and again and…well, again, the sign off became more and more unsettling. Eventually, the word stood out to me, cold and sterile as stainless steel….

Meet Alice Howard (HBS MBA '81)

Listening to yourself-your own values and interests-and shutting out some of the noise around you is precisely what you have to do. I came to know of Alice Howard (HBS MBA ’81), my alumni mentor, through the Social Enterprise Club Mentorship Program, and over the past few months, had chances to meet and chat with…

Why World Affairs Are Important For HBS

Picture the vast Atlantic Ocean. Deep blue water all around as far as you can see. Now picture a little sailboat cruising slowly in that vast expanse of Ocean. The Ocean represents what we might call “world affairs”-the political, cultural, social, and macroeconomic contours of life on this planet. The sailboat represents the personal life…

OB Still Going Strong

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. That is what I’m banking on because, although I’ve been guilted into writing another one of my fabulous section articles, I’m pretty short on time (that should read, I don’t have a job, so I can’t justify taking time out to write a Harbus article). So,…

Interview with John Kalafatas, MBA 1999

A recent conversation I had with my mentor, John Kalafatas (MBA 1999), shed new light for me on the opportunities and benefits of working in the social enterprise sector. After graduating from HBS, John worked as a consultant to non-profits and conducted social sector research at HBS. He now serves as Director of Strategic Planning…

Is Another Economic Slide Around the Corner?

We all have seen brighter days of the U.S. economy than the present (not to mention, on a personal level, those of the current labor market). There is substantial hope that brighter days are to come. In reality, there is a possibility of a longer than expected recuperation period and a deeper economic crisis in…

Turbulent Times: HBS in the 1960s

This article is the second of four pieces detailing the history of African-Americans at HBS for Black History Month, and is co-sponsored by the African American Student Union (AASU) and the Baker Library Historical Collection.

2002: A Year in Review

In many different ways, the Harbus newspaper has proved to be an enormous asset to the HBS community since its establishment 65 years ago. One of the great services the paper provides is a snapshot of the events, issues and concerns that mould the experience of being part of the HBS community. I’d like to…

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, As alumni of HBS and the Harbus editorial staff, we read the news about “cartoon-gate” with disappointment but not surprise. During our tenure from 1998-2000, the administration attempted to reign in the Harbus and its staff on several occasions when the paper crossed an imaginary line of critique, using very similar tactics. We…

So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Good Night

I can’t believe an entire year has gone by. I feel like it was just yesterday that Nick Will (then newly appointed to the Editor-in-Chief position) took me aside to interview me for the position of Viewpoints & Features Editor. I wasn’t prepared for our meeting to actually be an interview and was put on…

An Unconditional Apology

Wow, this week has seen some developments – Nick’s tragic withdrawal from editing the Harbus, CNN coverage of the event and a question over the freedom of speech in Harvard. I felt a little left out so, to join in the spirit of “covering my butt,” I’d like to just make the following apologies. They…

Dear Dean Clark:I am glad that you and Carl Kester are anxious for student feedback, and I would like to use your invitation to give you perspective on what some students feel.

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, I am a 51-year old retired military officer, now teaching government and economics in an inner-city school, and I have noted with interest the First Amendment “case” developing at Harvard.

Seven Reasons Why The Administration Was Right

I don’t get it, I really don’t. I don’t see how the issue of Nick’s resignation can be so divisive. It seems to me that the whole issue about the “cartoon” boils down to seven salient points. 1. The term “incompetent morons” was not a “disembodied phrase.” It is on the page with all manner…

Crossing the Chasm:

Last week the Harbus ran a special section for skiers. Included in this section were articles on saving money on the slopes and avoiding overcrowded mountains. As it so often happens, the topic of Nordic skiing was overlooked, though it offered a remedy to both problems. Nordic, or cross country skiing, is a great alternative…

Viewpoints: "MoronGate"

I would like to share with you my admiration for someone who, in my mind, best exemplifies the values that are dear to our community.

Correction

In last week’s edition of the Harbus, I published an article on the failure of the American Government to extend constitutional rights to foreigners detained in Guantanamo Bay. On page 5 of the article I asserted that “even if the military chose to systematically murder all of the detainees at Guantanamo Bay, their families would…

Investing in the Future

I feel terrible. Two weeks ago in a Harbus article I jokingly suggested that children were more expensive than MBAs. My son must have taken the comment to heart because over the weekend he took monetary matters into his own hands. There are many euphemistic ways to describe what happened – I’ve been telling everyone…

No Business Like Snow Business!

Autumn at HBS – what’s not to like? TGIF’s are still held outside, your shorts and t-shirts haven’t yet been relegated to the back of the closet in favor of (sub-) arctic survival gear, and even after a long day the sun’s still up when you get out of classes. But don’t think this country…

QuickPay's QuickFix: PayPal

As many of you know, QuickPay is no longer offered by The Harbus. With the Club Fair this week, implementing an alternative is a top priority for student organizations.

Letter to the Harbus…

Your tongue-in-cheek article about a case on the porn industry was very amusing, but hits a much deeper thread – the business analysis needed to succeed in less than savory industries. Although I am not recommending that we be required to learn about these industries, since it would be in conflict with the HBS mission…

Will it ever end? The RC recently completed yet another case on Microsoft, bringing the grand total of first-year cases dealing with the PC market to an appalling sum.
