I’ve got a lot that I would like to accomplish between now and April 30th, the day we drive out of here for the last time (we’re flying in and out for graduation). The handover of the Career Teams program to next year’s Captains will happen within the next few weeks, as will my last meeting with my Career Team, the conclusion of my field study, and a great number of irritating tasks that you have to do when you move from one city to another. It looks to be a busy three weeks.
In Professional Services we found out on Thursday that our professor did not make tenure and thus is concluding his teaching career at HBS. The school has a pretty strict up-or-out policy and so professors denied tenure are out within a year. It’s too bad, because Professor Nanda works hard than just about anyone to prepare for class, teach cases that fit a specific purpose, and engage students in the classroom. Though over-theatrical at times, he’s one of my favorites here and it’s a shame future classes won’t get to experience him.
