HBS Mission, the Case Method, and Diverse Perspectives [#permalink]

New post 08 Feb 2017, 11:00
FROM HBS Admissions Blog: HBS Mission, the Case Method, and Diverse Perspectives
I feel fortunate to be affiliated with an institution with such a strong sense of mission. The HBS mission—to educate leaders who make a difference in the world—is at the core of all we do. It influences how we teach, how we learn, how we build community, and how we support one another.

For the admissions team, the mission keeps us focused on crafting an exceptional class of leaders each year from across the entire world. We welcome applications from all people, everywhere, who share a passion for learning and making a difference in the world.

This past week, I had the great pleasure of spending two days with our Round 1 admits during Admitted Students Welcome. This gave me time to reflect, again, on the power of bringing together a smart, diverse, and motivated group of leaders in a learning community.

This is especially true at HBS since the case method thrives on diverse perspectives. Easy answers are hard to come by in the real world, so the case method and the broader learning model at HBS are designed to help you develop good judgment. Let me explain.

Over the course of two years at HBS you put yourself in the shoes of hundreds of different business leaders facing big decisions. You debate with your classmates the best course of action, and you won’t always agree. But, you learn to listen, to respectfully make counterpoints, and to understand where someone else is coming from. Your professors expertly guide the conversation toward key insights, but much of the learning comes from your peers. The case method works because students bring different perspectives to the classroom every day -- perspectives shaped by their individual experiences, upbringings, world views, and aspirations.

When I was a student, the most meaningful case discussions were the ones where I came in with a strong opinion about what the case protagonist should do, then walked out of the debate having totally changed my mind. Over the course of two years my classmates molded me into a better communicator, a person with more empathy, and a leader with better judgment. (Although I still have a lot to learn!)

So this post is a (long-winded) way of reaffirming our commitment to assembling a class of remarkable leaders who will make a difference in the world, wherever they come from. The recent U.S. executive order restricting travel to America for citizens from certain countries does not change this, nor are we changing our admissions policy or practices as a result.

While we have limited influence on visa and residency decisions by the government, we will do our best to make it possible for each admitted student to attend HBS (and we are working with our colleagues across Harvard University to ensure that the consequences of the order, as it is being evaluated by the judicial system, are understood). The case method, our community, and the HBS mission depend on it.

My take on interviewing at HBS and elsewhere (which has been reinforced by my clients' results) is that the main upside to interviewing on campus is that it gives you the ability to add some first-hand observations to your answers....i.e. "I sat in Prof A's class and was impressed by how the case discussion kept everyone involved and engaged" or "I had lunch with students B and C who told me such and such about their experiences which reinforced my beliefs about this school being a good fit for me because XYZ..."

It also has a signaling value of "this person cared enough to take some vacation days to fly out to Boston and interview in person" which may or may not carry weight with a particular school or specific interviewer at that school.

So I agree with everything you mentioned.

I had already visited campus prior to my interview. I visited a class and met with current students. Therefore, at the interview, I had those things to mention.

Essentially, visiting a school is totally valuable - if you haven't yet, you should when you interview.

I don't think it's harder for people from that part of the world. What could probably be an obstacle is some sort of leadership from a young age that HBS is looking at and that they might have not discovered easily. Physics/Math awards is a great achievement but did it inspire others? Did it lead others? Recommendations from alums or from colleagues with very senior titles are good, but the true story still is that it's what inside the rec and not who wrote it. The assumption is that many people have great essays, but some essays are much more personal, even if not necessarily flawless, and show someone who would add to case discussion. You never know exactly how the process works.

Blast from the Past: Interview Tips by @SBCErikaOlson

Has anyone had their interview at Harvard yet? Any advice on what to expect?


I've done mock interviews with several applicants this year for R1 and their interviews seem to be between the end of this week and Nov. 20th or so.

As for what to expect, HBS will know your application very, very well. They will ask questions that are very specific to you -- wanting to understand why you made the choices you did for both your undergraduate education and your career. They may ask you about any potential red flags in your application (I was asked about the only C I ever received (in Accounting) and why I struggled with that class, for example). There may be some SWOT analysis types of questions for either your current company/industry or the company/industry you want to be in after graduation. Since the questions will be so specific based on your materials, it's hard to make generalities beyond that because they ask one person will be totally different from what they ask another.

If you interview on campus with the adcom, there could be two people in the room and they will likely be scribbling notes the entire time you talk, so don't be unnerved by that. They run the interviews like a machine and will keep you moving along when they need to get to the next question.

Hope that helps...

Good luck!

I don't want to sound like complaining (because I'm not in position to complain after all - consider myself born rather lucky), but I think it is. There are two groups of reasons:

1) It's generally harder to pass tests, write essays and etc. (don't want to speculate, but quite sure could shoot 800 if GMAT was in my native language. And I still got more or less decent English. Imagine how many people got 100+ less on GMAT because of language barrier. Essay could be pushed to be way more poetic and crisp as well).
2) You still got quotas everywhere. Acceptation rate is quite different for different regions.

That being said, it's not a reason to be not admitted.
If they take at least 1 person from your country, it means that all you have to do is to be number one.
We should all try to aim for this.

From the applicant's perspective, I thnk that coming as a minority (even in terms of nationality) erases barriers that are associated with foreign languages. I don't think that many Russians are targeting MBA degrees in the US, especially at top business schools, so you are kind of a rare case here. Also, it is easier for Russians to have non-standard backgrounds, considering our unpredictable economy, which in many cases doesn't allow most Russians to make the desired career path if they are not from either Moscow or Saint-Petersburg, or have a family with a high-income level. We have to overcome much more obstacles than do an average american or european citizen. Therefore, for a Russian citizen himself applying to a business school in the US is already an achievment. I think that adcoms are pretty aware of the living standards of the countries and they evaluate applicants' achivements and profile, taking this knowledge into account. I see my nationality as an advantage, rather than a drawback.

There could be different perspectives on this. I see nationality as neither advantage nor disadvantage. To be honest, don't care about it much, as I can't change it, so it's not actionable. But there are two erratas:

1) Notice that I did not mention Russia in original post, rather about all non-natives in general. It's the same for Indian, Chinese, and so on.
2) As for Russia - yes, I agree, the number of applicants from Russia is far less than say from States. But check how many people get into top schools - for most it's 1-3 per year. Add up other quotas as male/female and you get an unpleasant picture. All of this projects in below average acceptation rate.

Now, for this particular year I have heard that the number of admits from Russia is especially low, but I don't have stats for this so I don't want to speculate.
