The "Summer Venture in Management Program" is halfway, and we are having a blast! SVMP is a program for rising college seniors from all kinds of minority backgrounds, who get to experience what it feels like to be an MBA student at the Harvard Business School for one (very full) week. It's the best thing we do all year. And this year, we made it twice as big, so we're also having twice the fun. #HarvardHBS#SVMP#lookatallthosebeautifulfaces#ihavethebestjobintheworld ( by @kev.wolf)
Traveled to NYC today to teach at the @UnitedNations, for a group consisting of UNDP Resident Representatives -- the courageous people who risk it all to run local divisions of UN agencies in faraway places, all in an effort to do big things like reduce poverty, promote equality, and battle climate change. I guess this means that if they, say, end world hunger, I can take all the credit? Seriously -- quite an honor and a privilege! (Alternative caption: Me, trying to look important by holding a deflated soccer ball, amid really important people ). Shout-outs to @mariamwkakkar and @paelin.chen for making it all possible.
#TBT To that time when I received my honorary degree from Harvard University ("Universitas Harvardiana Cantabrigiae"), and for a full five seconds regretted not studying Latin in school (until I saw that the accompanying letter provided a full translation ). I never believed this until it actually happened, but every professor who makes tenure gets one of these. Yet another reason why this place is the coolest. #youknowwhatsgoingtokeepmewarm? #thatsrightthosedegrees#kanyesaiditbest
I ventured outside the classroom today, and headed straight for @HarvardHBS's studio, to teach my case on @therock in one of our HBX online programs. It's really cool -- we professors look at a wall with dozens of people dialing in from all over the world who can participate using their laptop cameras. They get to see us, and they follow our writing on the "boards" (which are actually smart screens). Within a few minutes, you forget it's not a real classroom! Gotta love technology.
Whenever, wherever. We're meant to be together.

... And that's a wrap on the "Business of Entertainment, Media, and Sports" 2017 program! What an incredible group of people. A big THANK YOU to all the participants who worked and played hard to make the most of our four days together (or, in the words of one legendary participant, to get to that coveted 100% download level ). I've never been happier to have the job I have. More videos and photos to come soon! #Harvard#BEMS ( by the brilliant @kev.wolf)
That moment when the legendary @llcoolj and his amazing COO @claudinejoseph can't stop laughing at your first (failed) attempt at rapping, and you can only hope no one will ever see this video. Good times.
Rising college seniors -- this could be you on the steps of @HarvardHBS's Baker Library! One more week to apply for the 2017 edition of the "Summer Venture in Management Program" for students from all kinds of minority backgrounds... Don't let the deadline pass. Everyone else -- thank you for spreading the word! #SVMP#MakingADifference#ChangingLives#StillFiredUp
All it takes for me to look as flawless as @gabunion are the new beauty products in this little bag, I am told. You gotta love science. But seriously, it was great to catch up with my hero. Love this woman. #nbaallstarweekend#nola
