Babar Azam and Rizwan, former cricket players turned Harvard Business School students, are poised to score big.
Harvard Business School.
Former cricketers Babar Azam and Rizwan are now pursuing degrees at Harvard Business School. Are they ready to hit sixes there?On Twitter, Babar Azam posted a photograph with the provocative message, “Ye kya ho raha hai?” [What exactly is going on?]An image of Pakistan’s captain and the leading batsman in one-day internationals (ODI), Babar Azam, and ace batter Mohammad Rizwan has garnered a lot of attention on social media. Babar Azam is also the leading ODI batsman.A day before the two cricketers are scheduled to embark on an exciting voyage at the Harvard Business School’s executive education programme on the Business of Entertainment, Media, and Sports (BEMS), the photo has surfaced only one day before the start of the programme.
Taking advantage of the opportunity, the captain uploaded the photo on his Twitter account on Tuesday and captioned it with the provocative question, “Ye kya ho raha hai? [What exactly is going on?]”
The two people can be seen concentrating on their work in the photograph, with documents strewn about the room. The photograph depicts Babar reading a paper while laying on a sofa and propping up his legs against a wall. Rizwan, on the other hand, is shown reading while seated on the floor inside of a room.The pair will make history by becoming the renowned school’s first ever cricket players to enrol there. They will take part in the programme from the 31st of May through the 3rd of June on the campus of the institution located in Boston, Massachusetts.
After the programme ends on June 13, both cricketers will continue to interact with other communities around the United States.Other athletes, such as Kaka, Edwin van der Sar, Gerard Pique, and Oliver Kahn, as well as Brandon Marshall of the National Football League, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade of the National Basketball Association, and Alex Rodriguez of the Major League Baseball, have already participated in this course.”It is an incredible privilege to represent Pakistan on such a renowned stage on a worldwide scale.
We are going to participate in the BEMS programme at Harvard in order to get knowledge from the most accomplished people in the world, in terms of both teachers and fellows participating in the course, and at the same time to share our experiences and what we have learned.with each and every one. A few days ago, Rizwan had stated that he was looking forward to sharing his knowledge and experiences with the future superstars of the cricket world. “I am certain that this will be an exciting journey, and I look forward to sharing our learning and experiences with the next superstars of the cricket world,” he had said.In the meantime, Babar expressed sentiments that were very similar.
I consider myself to be a student for life, and I have had in-depth conversations with both Prof. Elberse and [Talha] Rehmani regarding this programme. My motivation for enrolling in this prestigious programme at Harvard is to make connections, go on adventures, learn new things, become more mature, and contribute in some way to communities all over the world. I have no doubt that there are a plethora of lessons that can be picked up from the incredible sportsmen and leading business executives from the entertainment, media, and sports industries that are travelling from all over the world.
