FYI - Should be interesting.

Learn about all the insider speak.

Do you know what a “pit diver” is? What about a “cold call”? Well get ready. CNBC will unravel the mysteries of that prestige factory, Harvard Business School, in a documentary premiering Thursday, December 17th @ 10pm, 1a ET.

I remember seeing their promo commercial. I will definitely DVR this.

However, recently there's been lots of publications discussing HBS. (including the famous Ahead of the Curve) Not sure if we will be learning anything new.

I am more interested in seeing the return of CNBC MBA Challenge. I wonder if H/S/W will participate this year. Last year's roster included: MIT, Texas, Columbia, NYU, Booth, UCLA, Tuck and Yale. MIT, Booth, NYU and Tuck all got knocked out in the first round if I remember correctly. I just remember watching some ppl on those teams and say, "They don't look or sound bright at all! How did they get in?"

I find that at schools when I visit as well. I often go in expecting to be wowed by the brilliance and I figure out that people are pretty normal. At one school that I'll leave unnamed, I found that people kept giving these really common sense answers, but giving them like they were really profound. I nearly died, I could have had a conversation with my high school aged sister that had more depth.

Oh my god, I just watched the clip about the "pit diver" and "cold call" lingo and that chick was so dam annoying.

And what's with the d-bag in the polo with the "popped" collar?

HSB has suddenly lost value in my eyes. :wink:

I sat in on a LEAD class when I went to interview last week. I later found out the students in that section were featured in the documentary....specifically the poor guy who was cold called. It was the last class of the term and the professor opened up his lecture with a joke about how he promised not to cold call anyone else for the rest of the year. The whole class got a good laugh out of it. I later found out that the poor guy who was cold called had been teased incessantly! :)
