WHAT IS YOUR DAY JOB AT HBS?


CASEY: I work in the CPD office as a Recruiting Relations Manager. I partner with organizations in healthcare, social enterprise, cleantech and energy to help them engage effectively with students and alumni.  


CHRISTY: I manage social media for the school, where I tell the story of the HBS across multiple social media accounts each day. I also advise 18 other groups across the school on their targeted social media outreach.


HAVE YOU EVER BEEN A PROGRAM MANAGER BEFORE?


CASEY: I was lucky enough to be a Program Manager last year in Istanbul. I am excited to get to experience another Immersion!  


CHRISTY: I’ve been at HBS for two years so this is my first time as a Program Manager. 

WHAT EXCITES YOU MOST ABOUT TRAVELING WITH MBA STUDENTS AND FACULTY?


CASEY: In the career services office I get to work closely with students learning about their post-HBS aspirations. FGI offers a unique opportunity to get thrown in the thick of students’ academic experience. It is also great to see faculty operate out of the typical classroom experience.  


CHRISTY: I think that this experience will give me more context for the work I do at HBS. I also expect our section to have the best #LifeatHBS photos!


WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO LEARN IN YOUR FGI LOCATION? 


CASEY: I’m most excited to learn about a new culture. Although I went to Istanbul last year we stayed mostly on the European side. This will be my first immersive experience in Asia.


CHRISTY: I am sure that traveling in India is going to be a unique and fascinating experience. I’m looking forward to experiencing that with our group.

WHAT IS ONE THING YOU CAN'T TRAVEL WITHOUT?


CASEY: Google maps.


CHRISTY: Cheez-Its. They’re the best travel snack


WHERE HAS BEEN YOUR MOST FAVOIRTE PLACE TO TRAVEL AND WHY?


CASEY: I traveled throughout South Africa on a month long volunteer trip during college, and completely fell in love with the country and the people.


CHRISTY: Recently I have travelled to Morocco, Iceland, Chile, and Argentina. Each were incredible but I think my favorite was Morocco because I was blown away by the art and design. 

IF YOU HAD TO CHOOSE THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOURSELF AS A TRAVELER, WHAT WOULD THEY BE?


CASEY: (1) Spontaneous, (2) Laid back, and (3) Adventurous.


CHRISTY: (1) Wanderer, (2) Planner, and (3) Awestruck. 

IF YOU COULD SPEAK ANOTHER LANGUAGE, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?


CASEY: French. Someday I would love to live in Paris.


CHRISTY: It’s too hard to choose because there are too many places I want to go!
