Around the World in 90 Students
Just wrapped up my first week at HBS! Before I head off to a variety of happy hours, dinners, bars, and brunches, I wanted to comment on how fantastic and diverse the students here at HBS here. Case in point: As some of you may know, the first year class at HBS is divided into 10 “sections” of about 90 students each, and it is with this group of individuals that you spend the vast majority of your time.
Anyway, I met my section this week and everyone is amazing. When we went around the room introducing ourselves I jotted down the countries that people hailed from…the list is impressive, to say the least, and is as follows:
- Dominican Republic
Whew! And that doesn’t even include all of the amazing places that people have lived, worked, and traveled. It makes me wonder why they’d ever want little ol’ me from North Carolina. Aw, shucks…
Have a great weekend!
