Add another 300+ employees and then we’ll have ourselves a real competition….
The Corp likes to boast that it is “The Largest Student-Run Corporation in the World!” It’s a pretty impressive superlative. Unfortunately, it’s one that the Harvard equivalent of the Corp, Harvard Student Agencies (HSA), also claims, verbatim.
So who earns the title? Let’s see how the Corp and HSA stack up:
On sheer scale, it’s something of a blowout. With HSA dominating all four categories, it looks like the Corp is not actually “The Largest Student-Run Corporation in the World”—not even the largest on the East Coast. Don’t worry, though, it’s not like Harvard outranking us is anything new…
Update: But! Looking at HSA’s Board of Directors and Management Team, it’s clear that while HSA may claim that it’s “student run,” they definitely get support from adult staff members and alumni. Ultimately it comes down to what your definition of “student run” is: if we’re interpreting it as entirely student-run and -operated companies, the Corp still takes the cake.
