A couple days ago my section mate and I had a lunch with dean. It's quite interesting discussion, which I think could give more information for young applicants.

My classmate asked the purpose of HBS new 2+2 program and challenged the dean how can people without working experience learn well at HBS. Then the dean told us first, it could help diversify the student pool. And second, HBS studied the 20 most successful HBS graduates and the dean asked us to guess the average age of them when they were studying MBA at HBS: It is 22 year old.

To be honest, the answer made all of us speechless. The dean just told us that it is difficult to reach this group of people after they join work. And so the 2+2 program could better reach them in their early days.

Another interesting question is that people ask whether HBS students are arrogant people. The dean said he had 2 news: the good news is that we are not, as admission office is strongly against arrogant people; the bad news, since our graduation people would raise their expectation on us. We need seriously consider our behavior.

Hope these info can shed more light on HBS for you.

在HBS,Leadership&Organizational Behavior的课是对我冲击最大的。我们班的教授是Morgan Stanley的Managing director,当然其他班也有Goldman的MD教的。他们真的是实在上得太好了,把他们的实际工作经验或人生故事融进CASE教,没有一节课上完同学们不集体鼓掌至少5分钟的。如果你有机会来HBS听课一定争取来听一下。

哈佛的另一个令我很喜欢的地方,就是它真的是把它的VISION不停地instill到我们每个人的value里。从始至终我都发现在不同的课程不同的时候都会被积极鼓励毕业后一定要去做些对society有impact的事情。其实在B-School这种很现实的地方,如果你不是去做IB或Consulting而去做Social enterprise,大家都会觉得这个人或许有病。班级里,以前做PE的同学身边总是会围着一堆一堆的人。

前天上LEAD课的时候,整个班级都被震撼得不行,好几个人都哭出来了。那节课讲的是如何LEAD ORGANIZATION的MODULE,讨论一个改革哈佛医学院的有关ALS病的研究机构。大家讨论了70分钟得出的结论就是那个人,累得要命做了一大堆事情结果还是做得不怎么样,我们都觉得非常的不以为然。

然后老师就在最后5分钟给我们看了一个VIDEO,然后我们就无话可说了。他说是的,这个世界上,你可以选择不同的机构去工作,你可以去选择很人际关系很clean的地方工作,比如说很多professional firm,每个员工都是很motivational的,你也可以去一团混乱的地方工作,在那里并不是每个人都有motivation好好工作的,在那样的环境下,如果你能把那个Organization从C(如果评分的话)改进到B就已经是非常了不起的事情,那就是leadership,我们在这里接受到了很好的教育,应该努力把我们学到的skill去帮助像ALS这样的机构,哪怕你只做PARTTIME,每个人都要努力去做些对社会有impact的工作。

这个VIDEO讲到的是哈佛在2004年录取的一个学生,他在入学后的第二个星期发现得了ALS病,老实说这堂课可能并不是在某个SKILL-SET上给我们很大的启发,却给了我们这群money driven的B-School的学生太大的冲击。你也可以想象如果你好不容易申请成功,来到学校之后却发现得ALS,下面是那个VIDEO的LINK http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDlvE7IxGJ0

写的真好,片子真感人,尤其是最后那句话:“say goodbye to friends... and tree” 商业很现实,所以需要一些精神上的东西。

Hello, Michelle,

This is Walden. Fantastic sharing! Thanks a lot.
Reading a book named <What It Takes to be NO. 1> These days.
It's about the legendary football Coach of Green Bayer (绿湾包装工人队)in NFL US, which won 7 Super Bowl in 9 years. There are 7 rules about leadership that sounds powerful:

1) Courage
2) Passion
3) Sacrifice
4) Commitment
5) Hardworking
6) Discipline
7) Mental Toughness

The principles of (3) Sacrifice and (7) Mental Toughness  touched me most. That's real leadership. Your story about that guy reminds me of that.

Good day and we are so lucky to do what we love! :)

[align=justify]Hi, popray, Sunlin, Steven, Lulu and lucky Walden;), thank you for your comments. And nice to meet you here.

Yesterday I had another lunch with my LEAD professor. And I challenged him why doesn't Harvard have any alliance/exchange program with other B-School. Actually we had asked this question to dean last time. Most people think that all because Harvard is no.1 school and therefore doesn't want to have any alliance with other schools. But actually it is NOT (Just like the similar myth that a lot of people perceive HBS students arrogant). HBS had such test for exchange program at California before but unfortunately it turned out not successful. First, people from other school need time to get used to the special case study at HBS. Second, people at HBS had strong bond to their sectionmates and still want to stay with the sectionmates. And students also need stay at school for recruiting.

Currently, HBS starts to put more emphasis on China market. They found the case study so useful for Chinese managers and HBS already decided to start some executive education in China. And actually HBS wanted very much to reach China but the question is the limited resource: which faculty professor should be sent to China...

看了你的文章,我终于知道自己要在MBA里面学习什么东西了: the spirit of business. 尤其是在以利益为导向的商业组织里,构建什么企业文化,企业责任感,没有一点精神上的力量是办不到的。
