MBA Students Chew on Challenge with Wrigley’s Gum  [#permalink]

FROM Broad (Michigan State) MBA Blog: MBA Students Chew on Challenge with Wrigley’s Gum
The way consumer goods are purchased has quickly shifted from almost entirely in-person to almost entirely online. This presents a problem for products that rely on impulse buys at the checkout line, such as gum. For the folks at Wrigley, this change in the marketplace presents a challenge, and it’s that challenge that they asked Broad’s Full-Time MBA students to attempt to solve as part of Extreme Green – Building Creative Confidence, a short course designed to build creative and innovative thinking.

Winners from the Extreme Green – Building Creative Confidence course, Shruti Gupta, Tess Moreno, Marc Palazzolo, Christopher Storey, and Marc Wilson, pose with Glenn Omura, associate dean for MBA and professional master’s programs, professor Liz Bain and representatives from Wrigley.

Executives from Wrigley’s 5 Gum challenged the MBA class of 2017 to a case competition with the above situation and visited campus to hear presentations of solutions from 15 teams of students.

“The Wrigley team was most impressed by the analysis of the consumer journey presented by the winning team of Shruti Gupta, Tess Moreno, Marc Palazzolo, Christopher Storey, and Marc Wilson, who proposed a self-monitoring cell phone app that ‘knew’ when to suggest a gum purchase and facilitate an online purchase,” said Glenn Omura, associate dean for MBA and professional master’s programs.

The runner up team of Melody Buckley, Tyler Duston, Anita Hariharan, Yuxi Wei, and Nicholas Zaggy offered a way of changing consumer behavior from impulse to habitual purchasing. The third place team of Weian Huang, Ankit Jain, Joshua McAlary, Andrea Schweitzer, and Brent Walker suggested embedding packs of 5 Gum in the Candy Crush video game.

The student teams had to understand current macro trends, project them ten years into the future, and imagine what technologies might be easily accessible for business and consumer use, while drawing insights on what consumer purchasing behavior might be like and developing a futuristic perspective of what could be, Omura said.

The presentations represented the integrated efforts of three different classes: Extreme Green – Building Creative Confidence; Marketing Strategy Execution; and Management Communications.

“It was highly rewarding to see the content of what was taught in class get integrated in the students’ strategies, but most exciting was seeing the creative ideas that I would never have thought of,” Omura said.

Chris Anders, R&D global program manager at Mars, told the class the presentations reflected the kind of students Wrigley and Mars are looking to hire. “I love these proposals. These proposals fit the mold perfectly,” he said.

Extreme Green – Building Creative Confidence taught students that creativity can be reawakened and applied to solve business problems. Marketing Strategy Implementation followed up by teaching how to use creativity to find problems others do not yet perceive and solutions beyond the imagination of most. Management Communications taught them how to present the ideas with energy and purpose.

I had an interview with the Adcom member. It went on for like 14~15 min. Don't knw whether it's the standard duration or he decided that I am a waste of time and just rushed through . Basic questions : conflict situation , achievements , community service example . Questions you have already prepared for.

I don't get it . Sometimes I ace my interviews and sometimes I screw it all up. Does it happen to any of you geniuses ??

Aaaannnyywaayyss.....very very basic....but short interview....no problems at all.

Go ahead and rip them off Tiger !!

Hey buddy, As far as I know, they did not invite anyone below 700 from India this year. Just in case you are in that bucket, it might be the case.
Generally broad is very fast with their stuff. I was in similar position and ended up with a ding later!

I had interview with Paul yesterday...he told me although we have an hour but we generally complete interview in 20 odd minutes. So, you may not have to worry :). However mine went on for half an hr and questions were similar as yours.....but as usual with interviews u feel that some questions could have been answered better....lets c wts in store... can just wait and hope for a positive outcome.

There's no real way to "know" if they are done sending invites out, though monitoring this thread will keep you informed if they do send out invites. However, with the decision date in mid-March, it may be way to early to start worrying. Keep up the hope!

Hi Guys,

Had an interview with an ADcom member on 25th Jan. He said that March 11 is the decision deadline but one can expect to hear earlier from them. Can anyone shed light on how much time, on an average, does the Adcom take in disseminating results post the interview?

The results will be available on the decision date or maybe 2 days earlier. Not earlier than that.

MBA Students Earn a GM Guided Tour of International Auto Show  [#permalink]

FROM Broad (Michigan State) MBA Blog: MBA Students Earn a GM Guided Tour of International Auto Show
Image
Full-Time MBA students Jeff Smiertka, Benjamin Ervin, Dan Napier, Jared Kuehnlein, and Scott Saxton with GM’s Adam Bernard, associate director of competitive intelligence, and David Wenner, director of labor relations at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Business case competitions within the MBA program at the Broad College of Business are about learning, and win or lose, much is gained by going through the process of identifying and working to solve a real problem for a global company. This was certainly the case when Full-Time MBA students got the chance to work with GM on imagining the future of automotive technology as part of the Extreme Green short course.

That being said, winning does come with perks.

In this case, the winners of the Extreme Green case competition were awarded a trip to the North American International Auto Show and a guided tour for a behind-the-scenes look at how GM created the technology featured at the show.

Winning team Jeff Smiertka, Benjamin Ervin, Dan Napier, Jared Kuehnlein, and Scott Saxton visited the auto show during its last weekend in Detroit and toured with GM’s Adam Bernard, associate director of competitive intelligence, and David Wenner, director of labor relations.

“As a future GM employee, I found the experience especially beneficial. Having Adam and David lead us on the tour was a unique opportunity that really enhanced the overall experience. Their endless knowledge of not only of GM’s product portfolio on display but also that of all its competitors, down to the smallest detail, was quite impressive,” Smiertka said. “It helped me better appreciate the complexities involved in this hyper-competitive industry and where it is headed in the next 10–15 years.”

Had my interview a few days ago....

It was my first MBA interview experience.

I would call it fairly decent, considering my amateur preparations.

The questions i was asked were
1) Why MBA? Why now? Why Broad?
2) Example for out of the box thinking?
3) Second example for the same .... (I don't know why he asked that)
4) Constructive feedback that i have ever received..
5) Any community service that i am involved in... (Which i refused coz I am not actively involved in any community service these days)

The interview lasted mere 20 minutes. I was puzzled when it was over.

Congrats Deepu for your interview. Its good to know that people are still getting the invites.
Has anyone recently got the interview invites. Anyone below 700 can share their experience.
This is a real test of patience by the way. I am checking my mails, spam/other folders multiple times everyday. :?
I am banking on my profile. I hope to get hear from the school soon. :)

660 and still staying strong 8-)

It is usually a short interview ~ 20 mins.
So, don't worry about it.
