Best Pick-Up Lines By Harvard MBAs?

Who are the most eligible MBAs at Harvard Business School?

Sure, it’s not as vexing a question as the challenges faced by a chief financial officer who is dealing with massive debt on the balance sheet of her company. Or a CEO who is managing through a crisis that could forever damage the reputation of his company.

HBS student Stephanie Swingle

But with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, the student newspaper at Harvard Business School, The Harbus, named 31 of the most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes currently studying for their MBA. And then asked their thoughts on dating, romance, and love.

In a feature under the headline Harvard Business School’s Most Eligible, The newspaper asked each first- and second-year section to select their most eligible singles to celebrate Valentine’s Day and then picked favorites.

Each most eligible nominee dishes on his or her best attribute, pre-date ritual, most romantic spot on campus, the most effective pick-up line, and what they find to be a deal breaker in a partner.

HBS student Amol Shah

Consider Stephanie Swingle. Her pre-date ritual? “Unabashedly jamming out to Jay-Z, SHM, and/or Taylor Swift while ‘getting ready’ (and subsequently losing track of time because, well, I throw a pretty awesome one-woman dance party).” Swingle says the most romantic spot on campus is “the foot bridge. Or the JFK bridge. Or even the cab stand….when it comes to a romantic moment, any spot that leads away from campus is probably a good bet!”

Or consider Amoi Shah, whose Johnny Depp-like looks apparently allow him to get away with a “pick-up line” of just “Hey!” with a smile.
