MBA News: “Ain’t No Party Like an HBS Party”

Well, if you were concerned that Harvard Business School would be all work and no play, it is likely that you have not heard of the annual Priscilla Ball—that is, if such an event is what you would consider “play.” Further, you likely never guessed that you would be off to South Beach, Reykjavik or Rio for short, mostly social, minimally educational, jaunts. Well, if Boston Magazine is to be believed (“Ain’t No Party Like An HBS Party”), then this is a large part of the experience. In Brigid Sweeney’s article in the September 2008 issue, she paints a picture of a no-work and all-play environment, a picture that may sell magazines but is hardly factual. Still, Ms. Sweeney’s article may provide an interesting alternative window into the experience for those aspiring to attend HBS.
