B-School Bossypants: A New Zealand Engineer-Star Athlete at HBS? Why Not? 

Our Bossypants, Betsy Massar (HBS) and Pamela Jaffe (CBS), advise a Kiwi engineer, who also played for the USA’s national team in field hockey, on leveraging his all-around leadership to get into the MBA program at Harvard Business School.  

In today’s episode, the Bossypants chat with an engaging New Zealander from one of the top engineering schools in Australasia, who also happens to be an Olympic-caliber athlete. He’s stepping up as a leader in groups like Infrastructure New Zealand, is involved in the World Economic Forum, and on the National Council of the New Zealand ALS society.   He’s got experience on three continents, handles everything from risk management to diplomacy in his job managing some of New Zealand’s most visible infrastructure projects.  

Does his experience and talent mean a seat in the HBS classroom? Watch and find out! 

If you would like to participate in a future B-School Bossypants webinar, you can contact Betsy and Pamela here.
