Thought provoking Thought generating
Without the benefit of actually being IN one of these open-forum Harvard MBA programs, I love the range of discussion that Young-Mee, Felix and Mihir bring to the mic every week. It has made me think about so many different topics from different economic and social view points and really challenged me to have more discussion with my friends and colleagues.
