One year out – time to celebrate?
It was the high amount of pictures of people wearing graduation gowns that suddenly populated my facebook account that alerted me of the fact that I have been out of school for a year now. Indeed, it’s this time of the year again when students at HBS (and many other schools for that matter) graduate. And about a year ago, on Friday May 29th 2014, I was one of them.

You just missed it this year, but there’s always next year!
What does it take to be famous among the HBS student body? Well, being a star professor at HBS sure helps – think Dean Nohria, Youngme Moon and Clay Christensen.

In practice, he chairs a couple of sessions during RC-year (Required Curriculum – the first year at HBS) during which he invites students to think about their career choices. He advises all students to ‘follow their heart’ when making professional choices. His fame has reached such a level that he has joined the star professors in being caricatured during the yearly HBS show. Indeed, once a year, HBS students present a show that is a great parody on life at HBS – and this year wasn’t any different. And if you ask me, Tim Butler (or at least the student that played his role) was the star of this year’s show!
