The business school experience is different for everyone.Some students come to HBS with partners, some bring their families, and some are in long distance relationships—while others are single and interested in exploring the dating scene in Boston and at HBS.Between the 1920s and '30s in Japan there was a literary and artistic movement known as ero guro which focused on eroticism, sexual corruption and decadence.In contemporary times Japanese pornography has gained a worldwide following and is frequently translated and exported to other cultures because of its large spectrum of themes and media.The ukiyo-e movement as a whole sought to express an idealisation of contemporary urban life and appeal to the new chōnin class.Following the aesthetics of everyday life, Edo period shunga varied widely in its depictions of sexuality.My fiancé and I were assigned to the same discussion group.
In fact, we loved it so much that that’s where we are getting married next July! Yes – a good amount of people do date outside of the HBS community. If not, you will still create lasting, meaningful relationships. For those in relationships, understand that both you and your partner will have to work a little harder at communication and patience.
The many opportunities for travel and exploration at HBS also helped solidify our love.
We are both world travelers, and have a mutual love for adventure.
Sarina Hickey (MBA 2016) met her fiancé Drew in discussion group during their first year at HBS.
We checked in with her to learn more about dating during business school, and how common it is for sparks to fly between classmates on campus. There is a pretty significant amount of people who partner up at HBS.
