A lot. My former boss went to HBS and there are fifty couples from his class who are married to each other. So 100/800 people married each other.

Interesting. Maybe that’s just the power of HBS. My M7 seems quite different.

I think this sentiment is really overblown. At my school, I’d ballpark 75% of the class was already in a relationship when they started (mostly pretty serious). Out of the other 25%, many would probably be open to finding a spouse in b-school. But maybe 1-2% max actively searching

Any Accenture Interactive account folks on what makes a successful Account Lead at AI. I've been approached for a "Digital Transformation Executive" role, but my knowledge of digital transformation/CX/BX is cursory at best. I crashed and burned pretty hard at Publicis Sapient (now back industry-side) and am wary of going back into the digital transformation space. However, the AI folks insist my general business background, MBA and brand strategy experience will translate to success.

Hi guys, I have a somewhat different question this time. Background: I have >8YOE and earn >100k€ in Europe and have been doing a Masters in Management next to working full time; and I'm almost done; However I failed an exam thrice (each time on the exam date I had important projects to run) now I need to find an MBA/MSC programme where I can transfer a lot of my already earned credits, any ideas here guys? Or should I just leave it- It was basically the last exam before starting my thesis..

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!
