MBA News: HBS Student Releases Book on His Own HBS Experience

Last week, Philip Delves Broughton, one-time New York correspondent and Paris Bureau Chief for the Daily Telegraph, released a book entitled “Ahead of the Curve: Two Years at Harvard Business School.” In this 250+ page account of the author’s personal experience, one where he finishes his time at HBS without (gasp!) a job (likely because he was busy writing and promoting a book —  besides, what better ending could there be?), he shows the good and the bad that is contained in the HBS experience and also specualtes on the positives and negatives that emanate from it on an enduring basis.

We have attached several reviews:

Economist: Factory for Unhappy People
New York Times: A Journalist in B-School Wonderland
BusinessWeek: What I learned at Harvard Business School
