On Thursday, Harvard Business School announced that starting this June, Chad Losee (MBA 2013) will serve as the program’s new Managing Director of MBA Admissions & Financial Aid. Losee will succeed Dee Leopold (MBA 1980), who has held this position since 2006 and who will remain Program Director for the 2+2 program.
The HBS Baker Scholar (an honor awarded to the top 5% of the class), graduated in 2008 from the Brigham Young University’s Honors Program, where he earned a BA in international relations summa cum laude.
After graduating from HBS, he worked for a year in the Dean’s Office as an HBS Fellow, during which time he helped launch HBX, a digital learning platform, worked on developing an HBX course on Disruptive Strategy, and co-led the exam and credential strategy for the Credential of Readiness (COR).
After serving as an Admissions Ambassador as an HBS student, Losee later acted as an observer with the HBS admissions board, where he’d evaluate prospective students during interviews.
Losee worked at Bain & Company’s Dallas office pre-HBS from 2008 to 2011, and then after receiving his MBA in 2014. In 2012, he spent some time in the BYU-Idaho president’s office as a summer associate, where he led campus-wide initiatives for students, faculty, and administrative leaders.
“I am a real believer in Harvard Business School’s mission to educate leaders who make a difference in the world,” says Losee. “I’ve seen firsthand how my classmates, the amazing body of HBS alumni, and the outstanding faculty and staff all strive to shape the world around them for the better. The experience of a two-year, full-time MBA at HBS continues to have a great impact on me personally and as a leader. My goal as Dee’s successor is to make sure that each diverse MBA class continues to have a transformative experience at HBS and go on to make a real difference in the world.”
