#MBAchicTakeover – Leticia shares a day in the life of a hotelier and Harvard MBA grad

Leticia Tavares, hotelier and Harvard MBA grad

This week, Leticia Tavares takes over from Washington DC to share a day in the life of a hotelier and Harvard MBA grad. Visiting from Atlanta, GA, we followed along as she performed hotel room inspections and discussed her passion for working in hospitality. Serving as Director of Operational Excellence for Marriott International, Leticia brought us to their DC headquarters where she spent the day working and discussing professional development; she then took the evening to answer questions and offer incredibly valuable insights into what a career in hospitality, and what life at Harvard Business School (and the process of applying to attend), is like. It was great to hear about her journey to HBS, how she managed studying and working in a new culture/region and how her passion for learning and operational excellence led her to her current role.

One of the inspiring messages she shared was to never let anything stop you from pursuing your dreams (including money); there’s something to be said for hard work and a fiercely optimistic mindset about all of the possibilities that await you. As she said, some of us have crazy dreams but don’t let something like cost or the fact that you’re doing something new prevent you from pursuing your dream program or career – by doing your homework and seeking support within your program and community, there are a lot of ways to make your dreams a reality.

If you’re thinking of pursuing your MBA — at Harvard Business School or elsewhere, if you’re figuring out your passion and how to make it happen, and if you’re someone who wants to invest in yourself, your education and career, don’t miss Leticia’s #MBAchicTakeover. This one is on the longer side but the lessons and insight she shares are well worth your time. Follow Leticia on her website (HospitalityVitae), on Instagram (@hospitalityvitae) and reach out with any more questions on the MBA and Harvard Business School!
