Problem Solving: HBS Alumni Making a Difference

Harsha Mulchandani, Vice President of Business Development at the Harbus, reports on the project looking at alumni contributions with a broader lens.

Mulchandani shares how HBS (Harvard Business School) is re-shaping the capitalist label thanks to Professor Howard Stevenson (Professor Emeritus, former Senior Associate Dean, HBS), along with Shirley Spence.

Their project, Problem Solving: HBS Alumni Making a Difference in the World, is a culmination of their efforts outlining interviews, sources, and archived stories on alumni making an impact in their own ways.

Mulchandani writes that the book details how the HBS alumni are tackling problems and pursuing opportunities in five broad, often overlapping, areas: education and lifelong learning, community and economic development, health and wellness, energy and environment, and arts and culture.
