I am in Managing Service Operations with Frances Frei, a world-class instructor if there ever was one, and the class is terrific. I probably average more than one “a-ha” per class period, which is a pretty big deal. She is incredibly passionate about the subject matter and it comes through, so I absolutely don’t regret putting her course #1 even though I could have gotten in with a lower ranking.
Then there are other classes, which I won’t single out by name. Those professors are also experts in their field and display passion for the subject, but for some reason the learning just isn’t there and I don’t feel like I am really being transformed, to use the HBS lingo. Fortunately, I only have one or maybe two classes in this bucket, so I’m doing well.
Anyway, lots to do before I head to a recruiting thing later, so I’d better get cracking.
