Untitled[edit]

If someone is both an alumnus of a graduate program, and a former faculty member, should we add them to both lists? Robert McNamara could go on either list, or both. Amelia Hunt 01:23, Dec 20, 2004 (UTC)

  • Maybe they should go on both lists. Someone hears that McNamara taught at the business school and wants to try to verify it by looking at the faculty list. If his name isn't in the list, the person may think he didn't teach at the business school. Taybul.Leeds 21:37, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

alumni[edit]

There soes not seem any use for a long list of ex-students. If at all , it should be in a separate wiki page Sanjiv swarup 06:28, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Name[edit]

Is HBS rebranding itself? I always thought the name was "Graduate School of Business Administration, Harvard University". The following link to the Harvard Gazette of 6/7/07 seems to agree.[1]. The link is not authoritative, unfortunately. Also, I wonder whether a Foundation really CAN run an operation and keep its IRS tax status. DCDuring 23:23, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

Removal of Erik S. Reinert[edit]

Two unregistered IPs keep attempting to remove Erik S. Reinert as wikilinks to other articles (such as this one). I'm trying to determine the real reason why. The last one, by 128.237.250.240 suggested that he failed to meet some unknown notability requirement. I'm starting this post to show the new editor where consensus discussions occur. --LeyteWolfer 20:03, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

It's a qualitative distinction, but he's clearly not nearly as well known as the bulk of people on this list. If we included every academic who ever published a book on the list of alumni, the list would go on for miles. I don't think he deserves inclusion. JustThatGuy2 17:04, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for the response. I'm just opposed to deletions by IPs (veteran of the Vandal Wars), without bothering to discuss the distinction with the whole. --LeyteWolfer 20:46, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
I went ahead and removed him, then, since you don't seem to object to the removal, just to the process. If I jumped the gun, let me know, and we can discuss.JustThatGuy2 16:26, 10 November 2007 (UTC)
No, I agree with your method. --LeyteWolfer 22:38, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

[edit]

The logo isn't showing up on the main article. Needs to be fixed. --216.165.62.185 (talk) 06:24, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

It's fixed now. --216.165.62.50 (talk) 23:37, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Alumni text removal[edit]

The alumni section has been tagged since June 2006 as not being supported by any reliable sources. I'm moving it below and encourage interested editors to incorporate alumni into the article in prose format and with reliable citations. —Eustress talk 22:02, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Crap[edit]

This article is, to be blunt, crappy. I rated it a 'start'. For such an important article, it is filled with spam, vandalism, advertising, chicanery, and puffery, yet lacking essential citations. It really needs a cleanup. Bearian (talk) 18:51, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

You're correct. Removed most of the SPS, copyvio promotional crap.Notabede (talk) 03:03, 6 November 2013 (UTC)
