We are traveling the world. Frequently.

I’m sounding the alarm, folks. We need to build the @QuestromGrad Instagram account into a social media juggernaut. I’m talking Kardashian levels of inexplicable popularity. And it starts with YOU. Yes, the person reading this. Actually, in fact, you. I made it exceptionally easy by tossing a picture up top for you to not only ogle, but to also interact with by smashing the “Follow” button on the top right of the picture. If you’re interested in the comings and goings of the Questrom Graduate community, this is the Instagram account for you. We may even throw up a cute puppy/kitten picture to pander to our fledgling audience, but that’s more of a “break in case of emergency” type of thing.

*Point* –> “Follow” –> *Click* –> Thanks!

FROM BU Questrom Graduate Student Blog: Innovation Ecosystems: 10 Questrom MBAs + 9 Days in Israel = 1 Amazing Spring Break Elective
Image

Due to its increasing popularity, the annual student-led Questrom iTrek to Israel was recently transformed into the Innovation Ecosystems Field Seminar, a 3-credit elective course with a focus on Israel as an entrepreneurial ecosystem.  Dubbed “Start-up Nation,” Israel provided the perfect setting for ten first-year and second-year MBA students to learn about start-ups, their various funding sources, and the settings that allow them to grow and thrive.

With visits to Israeli start-ups, venture capital firms, incubators, and educational systems in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, we met with new and established leaders in the Israeli start-up ecosystem, learning about what sets Israel apart from other countries and leads to its high per capita rate of entrepreneurs.

We visited companies such as Nano Dimensions (a leader in 3D printing technology) and GenCell (a leading provider of innovative fuel cell power backup solutions), incubators such as MassChallenge Jerusalem and Startup Nation Central, and educational systems such as Tel Aviv University and Technion Technology Transfer.  In addition to the various site visits, we had the opportunity to visit the City of Jaffa, the Western Wall, the Dead Sea, Masada, and the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum, among other sites.

From Boston to Shanghai: Clark Soucy, MBA ’18, Interns at Panda Capita  [#permalink]

FROM BU Questrom Graduate Student Blog: From Boston to Shanghai: Clark Soucy, MBA ’18, Interns at Panda Capital
Image

Over the summer of 2017, Clark Soucy (MBA ’18) interned in Shanghai at a Chinese Venture Capital Fund, Panda Capital. Before enrolling at Boston University, he worked in Shanghai for three years at a Chinese Airline so he was excited to return to China for the summer. This internship gave him the opportunity to engage with the rapidly growing Chinese startup ecosystem and learn about the latest trends in Chinese business.

Shanghai, Beijing and many other Chinese cities are home to a rising number of startups with numerous local and overseas investment funds providing capital. The venture capital industry in China has a very similar model to that of the United States: VCs raise funds from investors which they then use to purchase equity stakes in new companies. The VC will then sell the equity holdings later to another investor or sell them during an initial public offering. Normally VC funds have a life span of 8-10 years as the funds sometimes need additional time to liquidate their holdings because some of the companies in their investment portfolio do not have an initial public offering. 

Panda Capital was founded in 2015 and the fund’s investment portfolio currently spans online consumer finance, peer-to-peer car rental, bike sharing, and other sectors. Clark’s responsibility as an intern was to assist the fund founders evaluate potential investment projects. In practice, this meant conducting due diligence and market research on many of the prospective businesses the fund was looking to invest in as well as creating financial models to project a range for the expected return on investment.

While interning at the fund, Clark met many portfolio CEOs as well as entrepreneurs seeking funding for their new ventures. He personally tested many of the products and services offered by these companies, giving him insights into new commercial strategies and a new mindset for analyzing investment opportunities.

He also used his time interning at the fund to improve his ability to use Chinese to conduct business. The fund only invests in domestic companies so all of the meetings and presentations he attended were entirely in Chinese; He also used Chinese to communicate with his colleagues and conduct research.  Clark plans to return to China to work after graduation so interning for Panda Capital was excellent preparation for his post-MBA career.

FROM BU Questrom Graduate Student Blog: Questrom Means Teamwork
Image

Somewhere towards the end of Mod 2, the second 7-week 3-class series in the first semester, it hits you. It’s a dizzying moment: you’re in the middle of StratSim (a week long management team simulation to create the most profitable company), you have marketing strategy and financial models racing through your brain, and bam–you’re a quarter of the way done with your Questrom MBA. By now, you have had the chance to get to know your classmates, your cohort, and your teammates and you will have learned that what they say is true: some of the best people in the world find themselves at Questrom.

Teamwork is central to the Questrom experience—and not just in that slightly squishy interview answer way. Each Mod has a team capstone project that distills the concepts of the preceding 5 weeks and provides the opportunity to learn from your fellow classmates. Together, you will assess a company for takeover, lead a car company, and work with a live client to tackle a real-life problem. Outside the classroom you and your classmates will team up to lead conferences, consult with nonprofits and small businesses, and enter (and win) case competitions. Questrom brings together a unique set of backgrounds and experiences—my Mod 1 team included students with backgrounds in commercial banking, nonprofit management, disaster recovery, and supply chain—and one of the greatest benefits is the unique perspective each brings to your common project. One person’s consulting background may help you understand that tricky operations concept; someone else’s work in engineering may open up a whole new perspective on a marketing project. It’s a great place to learn together, work together, and build those skills that employers say are the number one reason they prefer Questrom Grads!
