What Are They Thinking?Topics:
The Leadership Initiative, whose mission is to ensure that the School remains at the forefront of leadership R&D, has two projects under way that focus on young people. Using interviews, self-assessment exercises, and periodic interventions, one study is documenting HBS students’ perspectives on the transformational nature of the MBA experience and which elements of it have the greatest impact. A second project is examining the attitudes of “Generation Y” college-age individuals in order to better understand how young people perceive business generally and as a possible career choice.
