why this is important
Why this is important

[It] can be just as, if not more devastating than the mid-life crisis. It may be the single most concentrated period during which individuals relentlessly question their future. It is what we call the quarterlife crisis… [it] occurs precisely because there is none of the predictable stability that once existed. After 20 years in a school setting, goals were clear and ways to achieve them mapped out distinctly. But after graduation, the pathways blur… what once was a solid line has now disintegrated into millions of different options.

Quarterlife Crisis: The Unique Challenge of Life in Your Twenties Robbins and Wilner

student comments on course
Student comments on course
  • This course should be part of the MBA core-curriculum
  • Most useful & interesting course I’ve taken in this program
  • Amazing course which should be part of the management practices offering
  • Great class, probably one of the better electives offered
  • Honestly the only course I didn’t want to end – we could have used even longer to really develop this topic
  • I really loved this course and felt I got so much out of it
  • I would highly recommend this class to anyone who is considering marriage and children while pursuing a career
  • Very enjoyable, an excellent experience
student comments on professor 2008

  • Brad is a great speaker, he keeps the class engaged and he knows his subject very well.
  • Prof. Harrington is a great lecturer. He did a great job explaining the material and keeping the class engaged.
  • Excellent professor. Great industry experience and academic knowledge. Exceptionally good at engaging the class in discussion.
  • Great experiential teaching - great job of demonstrating how to apply theory. Made theories practical.
  • Prof. Harrington brings a blend of real world & academic experience that he intertwines into class. His personality and class structure make the time go by quickly
student comments on professor 20081
Student comments on professor (2008)
  • I was told I would be doing myself a disservice graduating from BC’s MBA program without taking Prof. Harrington - would love to take another course with him.
  • Professor Harrington was the best professor I have had at BC. I did not realize when I signed up for the class, but quickly realized that almost 90% of the students had signed up for the course because of the instructor.
  • Harrington was a referred professor and not at all disappointing. His enthusiasm for the subject while being in touch with reality of corporate life is a unique mix at Boston College. He is an asset to the Carroll School g Management and the MBA program
