The MBA and Life Checklist: Choosing your MBA Program (Part  [#permalink] New post 17 May 2014, 07:00
FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: The MBA and Life Checklist: Choosing your MBA Program (Part 6)

Dean Sally Blount ’92, Dean of Students Betsy Ziegler and students gather for a photo in celebration of #NUPurpleFriday.

This post is part six in a series. See part onepart twopart threepart four, part five.

As I was making my decision to attend Kellogg, I asked myself six questions to determine whether it was the right place for me. Here is the sixth:

Above all, is the show real, genuine and true?

A school is comprised of its people. Every school will describe its outstanding culture and people. The challenge for prospective students is to determine before you arrive if that is the truth or a platitude to answer the question: “Why did you choose Kellogg?” Although we have more than 1,200 students, Kellogg still feels bespoke to me.

These were my questions. Tt is important to identify yours. This decision will stick with you and you with it, for the rest of your life. I think one of Kellogg’s greatest achievements is its discontent with its accomplishments, coupled with its desire for more, and its realization that though we are a great place for education, character building and leadership development, we can still strive for more. I hope you can find and proclaim the same.

Christopher Alexander ’14 is a  2008 graduate of Morehouse College and is in his second year of the 2-year MBA program at Kellogg, his focuses on the Marketing and MORS curriculum. After graduation Chris will be heading back to Deloitte Consulting’s Strategy and Operations group, but will be based in Seattle along with his fiancé, and also Kellogg 2014 graduate Jessica Lane. Chris is very active on Kellogg’s campus, primarily as outgoing Co-President of the Black Management Association, Admissions Interviewer, and member of the class gift committee. Chris originally hails from Roxbury, New Jersey.

Innovating for Impact: Conducting the Design Process in Nica [#permalink] New post 19 May 2014, 07:00
FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Innovating for Impact: Conducting the Design Process in Nicaragua
Image

Image

Our multidisciplinary team of Northwestern University graduate students arrived in Nicaragua with a commitment to the human-centered design process. We sought to understand the unmet needs of Nicaraguan coffee farmers through in-depth interviews and hoped to design a business solution that would improve their lives. We had many fascinating conversations during our first few days, but two interviews in particular stood out because we witnessed the juxtaposition of extreme poverty and relative wealth in two families living just a few feet apart.

Two Sides of the Same Street
In the first interview, we met with an elderly woman who began producing coffee eight years ago after decades of farming simple produce such as onions, beans and corn. She had heard about the recent upward trend in coffee prices and sold her cow to secure the investment funds necessary to plant her first coffee crop. For several years, everything was going well, and she enjoyed the profits of her investment decision. Then, two years ago, La Roya (coffee rust) struck. This disease affects certain varieties of coffee plants and can decimate an entire crop in a short amount of time. Her entire coffee crop was destroyed and she lost everything: her crops, her investment, but most importantly her continued source of income.

Amazingly, despite her recent hardships, she remains an optimistic person. She talked about wanting to get back into coffee with more resilient plants. She maintained a very positive attitude about the experience and proclaimed that if she were able to obtain new plants, she would continue to work for many more years. This woman is 64 years old.

In the midst of this touching interview, three of us stayed outside the house so as not to overwhelm the woman. While sitting outside the house, we noticed who we believed were two construction workers taking a break from laying down new road tiles. After a minute of hesitation, we reminded ourselves that talking to them could lead to a greater understanding of our primary users and introduced ourselves. It turned out that the first man, named Don Osorio, actually lived across the street and farmed coffee. He joyfully welcomed us into his house for a tour.

What we found here was starkly different from what we found across the street. Starting with Don Osorio’s fancy fence at the edge of his property, the tile floors, and the small television, we quickly realized he was not facing the economic troubles of his neighbor. Don Osorio told us about the seven manzanas his farm encompassed and the split of his farm across coffee and ganado (livestock).

Don Osorio sold no coffee this year because La Roya decimated his crops as well, but his livestock business softened the blow. While proudly walking us through his farm, Don Osorio generously picked so many chayo (a type of squash) to give to us that we had to ask him to stop. He also talked about how he gives extra fruit, including bananas, oranges and avocados, to neighbors and friends. Finally, he sent us off with three pink chupetes (homemade ice cream) and a bright-eyed smile.

Don Osario’s generosity, un-sold produce, diversified business operations and large acreage came across as clear assets in our time with him. The team climbed into the back of the pickup truck, struck by the extreme differences exemplified in our two interviews. As we jostled down the bumpy road, we were excited about the ideation sessions we were about to have.

Learning Through the Design Process
These contrasting interviews illustrated many of the larger themes that we uncovered during our in-field design research, including:

  • Community and generosity are assets to these farmers. Even in times of hardship, the farmers help one another, which contributes to their optimistic outlook on life.
  • Having a diversified crop portfolio is often the key to success. However, the barrier to diversification is not personal choice or lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of proper funds to meet the startup costs involved.
  • Abundant natural crops (bananas, avocados, oranges, etc.) are potential revenue driving assets for landowners in Cusmapa. However, because of lack of demand in their own community and high transportation costs, farmers often do not see the market potential for these items.
The stories of farmers, like those of Don Osorio and his neighbor, instilled a deep sense of empathy in our team. We shared the heartbreak of the woman who lost her entire coffee crop during La Roya, and we shared the delight of Don Osorio’s abundant farm.

But most importantly, we were able to step back and look at the scope of our research as human-centered designers. What we saw was an amazing community, rich with natural beauty, resilient people and an incredible amount of potential.

The NUvention Nicaragua team is composed of an interdisciplinary group of students in the NUvention Impact course taught by Kellogg professor Jamie Jones. NUvention Impact is an interdisciplinary experiential learning program developed to teach students how to design and build market-based startups that help address unmet needs in resource limited areas. As part of their coursework, the Nicaragua team worked directly with Nicaraguan coffee farmers to understand their needs for crop diversification. They partnered with the Fabretto Children’s Foundation and its CEO, Kevin Marinacci, a Kellogg alumni. NUvention Impact is part of the NUvention interdisciplinary curriculum managed by the Farley Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the McCormick School of Engineering of Northwestern University.

Kellogg Team Wins Deloitte Case Competition [#permalink] New post 20 May 2014, 10:00
FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Kellogg Team Wins Deloitte Case Competition
 

Image

On May 16, 2014, a team of interdisciplinary students from Northwestern won the 1st place prize at the Advance Degree Consulting Alliance: Deloitte Case Competition.

“My team did our best to “think bravely” by drawing on our diverse backgrounds to address a pressing problem: the undersupply of Maker’s Mark bourbon. Our four-man team was truly interdisciplinary and represented over eight advanced degrees from three of Northwestern’s graduate schools: Kellogg School, Northwestern Law and Feinberg Medical School. Our team included myself, JD-MBA ’16, Kieren Patel, PhD, JD-MBA ’16, Michael Jung, MD-MBA ’16, and Rushi Talati, MD ’17. The photo shows the team in action at 3 am during the morning of the competition at Weiboldt hall. Thanks to Kellogg’s stellar technology infrastructure, we were able to operate as an integral team despite me being 2000 miles away in Los Angeles.”

Southeast Asia Global Initiatives in Management Trip: Part 1 [#permalink] New post 29 May 2014, 13:00

The class of GIM Southeast Asia with Astra International’s Senior Executive Team in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Back in March, a group of Kellogg part-time students embarked on their Global Initiatives in Management (GIM) trip to Southeast Asia. This is part one in a three-part series from Kellogg student Mitch Colgan on his experiences meeting business leaders in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore.

When our bus rolled up to the suburban headquarters of Astra International in Jakarta, Indonesia, it was met with camera flashes, hosts dressed in traditional batik shirts and several video cameras. The team at Astra was happy to host us and not afraid to show it! We made our way into the building and started the visit with a tour of the Astra corporate museum. The museum used interactive touch screens and video cameras to showcase Astra’s business lines (automotive, heavy construction, agriculture, and more), and to emphasize the conglomerate’s commitment to developing Indonesia. After the tour, our class and the slew of cameramen followed our guides to a reception room where the Senior Executive Team of Astra hosted us for lunch and conversation around priorities for the emerging nation of Indonesia.

We were struck by the market potential of the world’s fourth-most populous nation as we learned about the success of several transplanted Western technology and social media companies. Our class learned many interesting facts about industry in Indonesia, but we learned even more about the business culture by observing the formality and respect that was palpable among the entire leadership team. After our group session, we took another formal group photo and Prijono Sugiarto, Astra’s CEO, exchanged gifts with our student leaders and class advisor. We ended the visit with a traditional Indonesian lunch, and the Astra camera crew followed us back to our bus, snapping photos and rolling video along the way.

Southeast Asia Global Initiatives in Management Trip: Part 2 [#permalink] New post 30 May 2014, 07:00

The class of GIM Southeast Asia in the Petronas Towers, Kuala Lumpur.

Back in March, a group of Kellogg part-time students embarked on their Global Initiatives in Management (GIM) trip to Southeast Asia. This is part two in a three-part series from Kellogg student Mitch Colgan on his experiences meeting business leaders in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. View part one.

Upon touching down at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (completing three of four successful Malaysia Airlines flights), our GIM class was excited to be on terra firma. Earlier that week, we fought the traffic in Jakarta and swam in the waters off of Langkawi, Malaysia. Now in Kuala Lumpur, we were ready to take in the sights, sounds and tastes of the city. The first thing we noticed as our bus neared the city was the stunning height and brilliance of the Petronas Towers. Standing 1,242 feet above ground, the 88-floor twin towers are a signal that Kuala Lumpur is a rising metropolis of the East.

Image
The Petronas Towers soar 1,242 ft. above the bustling city of Kuala Lumpur.

While we enjoyed viewing the Petronas Towers from the ground, we were lucky enough to score a plenary meeting with Adif Zulkifli, a senior executive (and Kellogg alumnus) in a luxurious reception room in the Towers. During our session, we learned about the management challenges and benefits of operating a government-owned entity separate from the government hierarchy in order to maximize returns. We also discussed how Malaysia’s gasoline subsidies lead to overconsumption of gasoline and increased traffic in Kuala Lumpur. After learning about government intervention and deadweight loss in our core Microeconomics classes and witnessing the traffic in the city, we acknowledged the concerns and challenges of the relationship between the Malaysian government and Petronas. Other topics we discussed with Mr. Zulkifli included: management across borders and cultures, safety and environmental concerns, and Petronas’ efforts to holistically build Malaysia’s economy through education. After our meeting, we got to visit the observation deck at the top of the Petronas Towers to get a birds-eye of the rapidly developing city below.
