Becoming a Student Again [#permalink]

FROM Booth EMBA Blog: Becoming a Student Again
Diane Long is an HR Director at Fidelity International
and an executive MBA student at Chicago Booth.  Diane has been living in
Hong Kong for four years after relocating from New York where she was born
and raised.  Below she writes about starting the program at Kick-Off Week in
Chicago and what it's like to become a student again.

-->-->

It was a 15-hour flight from
Hong Kong to Chicago and after over 10 years away from the classroom, I was
feeling quite nervous to begin. I spent most of the
flight going through a printed version of the optional online math course
to prepare.  Okay, I will admit, I might have watched a full season of The
Closer as well; criminal dramas really get my focus onto derivative calculations!

Gorgeous view from my Chicago hotel
room at the Hyatt Regency – Navy Pier to the left!



In the spirit of challenging
myself, I also decided to use the week to live a healthier lifestyle than my usual
in Hong Kong.  I took a spinning class
every other morning at 6:00 am. The exercise helped me to focus once I reached
the classroom, though I did miss out on some late night socializing.



Kick-Off Week started Saturday
afternoon with drinks at the Hyatt Regency Hotel where we learned that there are 243
of us from all over the world. In some fun facts shared by the Associate Dean,
Patty Keegan, we realized that diversity didn’t just mean the gender mix, but
that we may have a James Bond in our class, someone who did Crisis Management
for Hillary Clinton, and I counted at least 7 doctors!



From there we headed into the first LEAD workshop which rotated us into
several small groups to discuss what leadership meant to each of us. It left me feeling inspired about the 21-month journey I was about
to embark on. Already I had met people
from very different backgrounds, but all of us had one commonality: we had
chosen and been accepted into the Booth program.

As part of the Miller
international cohort, we began class Sunday morning with Professor Linda Ginzel teaching us
the Essentials of Effective Leadership.  She shared that her goal in this course was to
make us ‘wiser, younger.' Later in the
week, she gave us a green pen to use to be our own coaches by habitually recording personal feedback with it. I have already bought a box of green pens to hand out to
the new graduates in my company to inspire them on their own journey of
self-learning.

Afternoons were incredibly
intense as each of us went through algebra, geometry, and other math
topics to get ready for Microeconomics. I was lucky to be sitting next to my study group members
and we supported each other throughout the week. There was no ego between us and I remember at
one point, someone said, “This is going to be so amazing when I get it!” I
don’t think we ever guessed that supply and demand curves would get us so
excited.

Being part of an international group gave us a fantastic opportunity to
learn across different industries. In
one assignment, we learned about the cement mixing business from one team
member and we used it for a case study answer. We ended the week agreeing that we would get together one more time
before the London international session over a webex and audio conference call to review the final answers for our
Microeconomics group problem set. We
worked out that it would have to be Asia evening, U.S. morning, mid-day for
Lagos and Russia. This is the spirit of
our global team!



Our next international week
happens in less than one month. This
time around, I will still focus on being healthy, but I think I will definitely
make sure there is time for some evening fun. But don’t worry - I've already started looking up spinning studios near the school!

Participating in the GNVC: Listen, Learn, Pivot. [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 25 Oct 2016, 10:01
FROM Booth EMBA Blog: Participating in the GNVC: Listen, Learn, Pivot.
Prem Iyer is CEO & Co-Founder of Rekonnex, a professional networking platform designed for
private social networks. Rekonnex (formerly Aluminate) was started at Chicago
Booth when Prem and two other classmates competed in and won the Global NewVenture Challenge [GNVC]. Since
graduating from the Executive MBA Program in 2015, Prem and his co-founders
have continued to grow the business. We caught up with Prem to hear more about
his experience and where he sees the company heading.

 Image



Prem Iyer competes in the Global New Venture Challenge at Chicago Booth in March 2015.



How did the idea for Rekonnex come about?

I knew I wanted to participate in
the Global New Venture Challenge [GNVC] but I didn’t have a business idea. It
wasn’t until my wife and I traveled to Mexico that something came to mind. We
spent the entire time at a resort and ended our stay without knowing that a
close friend of my wife’s was staying at the same place. We were so
disappointed to have missed an opportunity to catch up. -->-->

My immediate thought was; how many
others are experiencing this every day? How can we prevent missed opportunities
from happening? -->-->

During the next class week, I
sought out my classmate, Parijat Sahai, who specializes in mobile apps.  I remember him smiling at me when I pitched
him the idea. He said, “Man, every time I go to India, I have the same problem
and all my friends ask ‘Why didn’t you tell me you were here’! I can build this.”-->-->

After we built a prototype, we
brought in another classmate, Anthony Saladino. Anthony has an accomplished
educational and professional background and most recently worked in private
equity and real estate. He was brilliant at getting us focused on the real
problem at hand. -->-->

What does Rekonnex do? -->-->

Rekonnex is a mobile-first social
platform for private, vetted networks. You can use any affinity that you have
(such as a school, company, social organization) to find other people with similar
interests for career opportunities, events, information, and meetups. Rekonnex
also offers curated content by leveraging machine learning based on your
location and your personal and professional profile. This ensures that the user
sees only the content that is most relevant to them. -->-->

How did you prepare to pitch at GNVC?  -->-->

GNVC gave us a structured way to iterate
a pitch. What we presented day one was terrible but over weeks of refinement, our
pitch really flowed by the end of the class. -->-->

To prepare we tried to get
customer validation. I went to large enterprises like Deloitte and big
universities, and we showed them the solution and asked what they thought. Everywhere
we went the responses were positive. Those conversations with customers helped
shape the product and the presentation. -->-->

Finally, Professor Waverly Deutsch looked at
our deck and in 25 minutes she reshaped our entire flow. We were amazed at how
easily she gave us a more effective way to share our message. She is incredible
at telling a story. -->-->

What was competing like?-->-->

It was intense – we had to get up
in front of a bunch of Booth colleagues who are very intelligent, and extremely
competitive! We were confronted with some very legitimate ideas. There was some
natural tension, but even though we were all competitive it still felt like
colleagues hanging out and having fun. -->-->

Throughout the process, my team
knew I was not participating to lose. I kept saying, “We’ve got to win!” After
all, we had invested a ton of hours towards iterating our pitch.  We kept asking ourselves, “Are we conveying
the right message?”  We listened to all
of the feedback by the judges and mentors. And throughout the process we
remained humble; we knew that we didn’t know anything about this process. We
reminded ourselves, “If you haven’t done it, be quiet and listen and learn.” -->-->

What was some of the best advice you received? -->-->

Professor Deutsch told us not to fall
in love with your idea. In the time between having the idea and the finals we
had shifted to a B2B model and everything completely changed. We listened and
we pivoted. We talked to customers, and listened to their problem; our product
definition came from their feedback. And that was all the result of not falling
in love with our product. -->-->

If you come out of this process with
what you came in with, you didn’t listen.

-->-->



Image
Professor Steven Kaplan, Anthony Saladino, Parijat Sahai, Prem Iyer, and Professor Ellen Rudnick celebrate the team's GNVC win.

 

Where are you with the business now?

We have raised a portion of an
investment round, we have an Android app available on the Play store, and a mobile
responsive web version.  We’re in the
process of looking for initial customers. At the moment, we have a nice
pipeline of prospects fielding requests for proposals and we are focused on getting
past beta to a commercially available solution. The hardest thing is to acquire
customer number one – we are looking for early adopters. -->-->

The founding team is still intact.
We’ve grown by adding three developers and a technical architect, an Advisory
Board – Professor Deutsch, the Chief Digital Officer for the world’s largest
fast food chain, the Global Director of Alumni Relations for the #1 consulting
company in the world, and two other executives – the Principal of Global
Strategy and Operations for Google and the CEO/Founder of three mobile web security
companies. -->-->

Did your wife ever reconnect with her friend? -->-->

They connected afterwards on
Facebook but they never did see each other. In fact, they still haven’t seen
each other because we live so far apart. If only they had Rekonnex!

Chicago Booth 2016-17 Executive MBA Essay Tips & Deadlines [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 30 Oct 2016, 03:31
Image


Chicago Booth EMBA gives you just one essay but with ample space to make your case holistically. This approach to the essay question indicates that they are looking for people who can organize their thoughts, build a credible and compelling case for their candidacy, and maintain an extended yet focused discussion. The Booth EMBA adcom clearly puts value on verbal expression and expects senior level managers to have mastered this skill. Give yourself time to develop and refine your essay accordingly.

Essays:

1.
Why are you seeking an MBA from Chicago Booth and what unique knowledge and experiences do you hope to contribute to the program? (maximum 2 pages, 12 pt. Times New Roman)

The question zeroes in on the elements directly relevant to the adcom, but allows you to elaborate within those parameters. Considering the pivotal role the one required essay plays in your application, the key challenge is making good decisions about the following four elements:

Within the overall space allowance, how much space should you allocate to each part of the question? It will vary person to person. For example, a person who has her own company will require some “backstory” for context setting before discussing future plans, so she would allocate more space to goals than someone who is rising up the ladder at McKinsey. Someone with atypical goals (such as my client who successfully applied to a different top EMBA program) will need to spend more time clarifying why he wants the Booth MBA than a more conventional applicant. Analyze your own case and block out the essay accordingly.

You have to discuss your professional goals in order to explain why you are “seeking an MBA from Chicago Booth,” but how to present them? Since EMBA programs are part-time, an ideal place to start is your current work: what do you want to achieve and how do you want to grow during the years in the program? (This has the added benefit of giving the adcom a view of what you’ll bring to the table based on this work.) From there, move on to your goals for the 5-year period following graduation – give the most detail here; make it really concrete. Then sketch your longer-term career vision/plans, necessarily less detailed. Finally, explain how each of these career/goals phases require skills, knowledge, and perhaps relationships derived through the Booth EMBA.

How should you structure this relatively long, complex essay? Simply and straightforwardly is usually best. Start with your current/immediate goals. (If you need to provide some backstory for context, as noted above, do so as succinctly as possible.) Then progress through your goals. Next, discuss why you need the Booth EMBA now, connecting your reasons to the previously stated goals. Finally, present your contributions.

What “unique knowledge and experiences” should you talk about? Select two to four, and for at least two, give concrete examples. For all, discuss relevant insights – after all, that’s what you’re really bringing, not the fact of having done something. To select the best, consider what aspects of your experience would be interesting and/or useful to the Booth EMBA cohort and give them fresh insight or perspective. It could be related to industry, function, geographic/global experience, a formative personal experience, a particularly meaningful extracurricular (community or other non-work) involvement, etc. Choose points that expand the reader’s understanding of you, things they won’t necessarily glean from your resume, AND that have relevance to them.


2. OPTIONAL: If there is anything else you would like the Admissions Committee to know about you, please share that information here. (maximum 2 pages, 12 pt. Times New Roman)

This question invites you to present new material that will enhance your application, as well as to explain anything that needs explaining (e.g., gap in employment, choice of recommender if not using a direct supervisor, etc.). As far as enhancement points, there should be a clear value to the information you’re sharing – and it should not be content that more appropriately belongs in the main essay (contributions of unique knowledge and experiences).

3. REAPPLICANTS ONLY: Please give us an update on your professional, academic, and community activities since your previous application and highlight what you have done to strengthen your application. (maximum one page, single spaced, 12pt. Times New Roman)

Whatever developments you discuss, for each, describe the situation/experience concretely and clarify the impact you had. Also clarify how it demonstrates growth (i.e. not just “another” achievement), and why it makes you a stronger candidate.

***Disclaimer: Information is subject to change. Please check with individual programs to verify the essay questions, instructions and deadlines.***
