哈佛是享誉全球的著名高等学府,可谓是众所周知,从哈佛毕业的学子也是各领域的佼佼者。但是哈佛商学院院长的专访严格意义上不算是艾问人物的计划,原因不是因为他不是一个人物,而是与普通中国老百姓还是有些距离。可是艾问的小伙伴们觉得,中国的年轻人同样的优秀,也渴望得到更好的教育。了解哈佛,了解商学院院长将会很有意义,北京时间1月9日,艾问团队远赴上海—哈佛商学院中心,去对话这位哈佛的首位非美裔商学院院长——尼廷·罗利亚(Nitin Nohria)。

艾问十问

以下为中英文对照艾问十问:

1.中国人如何才能上哈佛?

As Harvard is the beacon of higher education for many Chinese and HBS was recently ranked as the No.1 Business School in the world, our first question would be how people can get into HBS, what kind of applicants are you looking for?

艾诚、哈佛商学院院长尼廷·罗利亚

2.马云没上过商学院,在阿里巴巴上市后成为中国首富,你想过哈佛商学院的价值到底在哪里?

Jack Ma is arguably the country’s richest man after the world’s biggest IPO in September, but he never went to a business school. What is the value of an MBA degree?

3.是不是只有二代才能上哈佛商学院?哈佛商学院招人的标准就是评估你成功的可能性吗?您觉得中国贫穷农村的孩子或者印度低种姓制度的人可以有机会上哈佛商学院吗?

Many successful applicants are the princelings or the second generation of rich. Is Elitism the dominant standard in the evaluation process? Do you think someone from a poor village in China or a lower caste in India could go to Harvard Business School?

艾诚、哈佛商学院院长尼廷·罗利亚

4.你的家庭—你在什么样的家庭出身 您父亲是Crompton Greaves的前任董事长,在中国您就是一个富二代,可以和我们说说在那样的家庭里长大是什么样的,对你有什么影响?

As we know your father was the former chairman of Crompton Greaves, in China, you would be called ‘fu er dai’, the second generation of rich, can you tell us what it was like to grow up in a family like that and how it influenced who you are.

5.你的童年—你在什么样的童年长大 您对动力和领导力有深入研究,曾说过一个人的童年和青少年决定了他性格的大部分。你的童年是什么样的?

Dean Nohria, we know that your intellectual interests center on human motivation and leadership, you once said one person’s character is largely formed at birth or during childhood and adolescence. Can you tell us what your childhood was like and how it has shaped who you are today?

6.你的第一次扮演该角色的状态 从MIT毕业后,您选择了教育而不是做一个商人,您还记得教授的第一堂课吗?

After you graduated with PhD in management from MIT, why did you choose teaching over business, do you remember the first class you taught?

艾诚、哈佛商学院院长尼廷·罗利亚

7.你在该使命角色上最大的挫败 您说过大家第一次见到你不会觉得你有魅力。2010年7月做为第一个印度出生长大的哈佛商学院院长,什么是第一次知道你会被考虑做哈佛商学院院长?你惊讶吗?那是因为曾经哈佛商学院的缺少你身上具有的创业创新精神吗?

Dean Nohria, you said Charisma is not the first word that comes to mind when people meet you. You came to HBS as a minority and now you are the first HBS dean from outside North America, were you surprised when you know you were nominated for this position? Why or why not? Do you think HBS lacked the innovative spirit you have back then?

8.你现在最大的焦虑 中国的许多商学院也开始提供MBA和EMBA课程,比如中欧商学院,您怎么看待?到目前为止,你做的最大愿望举措是什么?最大的挫败是什么 ?

We see a rise of business schools like CEIBS offering MBA and EMBA courses that are increasingly popular in China, is that something of your concern?

哈佛商学院院长尼廷·罗利亚

9.根据福布斯的调查,哈佛08年毕业生成功,但是对生活并不是很满意,他们过的并不开心,你感觉到了哈佛“ 精英主义、成功不幸福”等问题吗?

HBS operates one of the most prestigious MBA program in the world, but according to a survey compiling the satisfaction level of 2008 grads by Forbes, HSB did not make it to the top 10 list based on the feedback on their alma mater. the grads gave middling marks on satisfaction five years out of school, despite average paychecks in the $200k range. “The misery index is higher at HSB.” Do you think the grads are successful but unhappy?

10.之所有接受艾问的采访,是因为你希望跟艾问的年轻成长的受众对话?如果要送他们一个礼物,你会分享什么?

If you want to give the young audience in China a gift, what would it be?
