Student teams compete in five cities around the world for a chance to secure USD1 million in start-up funding to launch a sustainable social venture.

IE Business School will be represented by three teams.

Each team selected was chosen from more than 20,000 applications received from over 500 colleges and universities in over 150 countries. The Hult Prize regional final competitions will take place on March 13 and 14, 2015 in Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai and Shanghai.

Following the regional finals, one winning team from each host city will move into a summer business incubator, where participants will receive mentorship, advisory and strategic planning as they create prototypes and set-up to launch and scale their new ventures. A final round of competition will be hosted by President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Global Initiative at its annual meeting in September, where CGI delegates will select a winning team, which will be awarded the USD1 million Prize by President Bill Clinton himself.  President Clinton has gone on to say, “The Hult Prize is a wonderful example of the creative cooperation needed to build a world with shared opportunity, shared responsibility, and shared prosperity, and each year I look forward to seeing the many outstanding ideas the competition produces.”

We wish our IE Business School Students best of luck in the regional finals!

FROM IE Business School - International MBA Blog: Meet Anand R. Kumar: Dual Degree graduate of the IE IMBA and MIT Sloan MSMS

An Interview with Anand R. Kumar, AMAZON Senior Product Manager


By Talia C. Harris (International MBA candidate)

 

  • Senior Product Manager at Amazon
  • Took classes at Booth School of Business
  • Founder of three different startups. 
  • Alumnus of MIT Sloan School of Management.
 

Anand Kumar’s list of accomplishments is impressive! Just those four items are enough to make him a poster child for MBAs.  But the list above is missing one key ingredient… IE Business School.



 

Like many others, Anand was drawn to IE because of its reputation for cultivating the entrepreneurial skillset.  By the time he had applied to IE, Anand, who is originally from India’s northern state of Haryana, had already bootstrapped three startups.   But although the field was hardly new to him, the evolution of his experiences had not always been easy.



In fact, his first two startups failed.



The first, a social network for students studying for competitive entrance exams like the GMAT, actually got good traction in the student community.  The problem for Anand was that it was a solo project. 



“I did everything—I’d go to my day job in the morning and then come home and work on the website at night.”  While his undergraduate background in computer science had given him the skills needed to make the website a reality, the workload was grueling, often keeping Anand working into the early morning.  In addition, he admits that he had problems securing advertisers that would have helped turn the project into a profitable endeavor.  The website died after the website server crashed one night, putting him back in square one.  “I had no money to continue,” he says. “Or stamina,” he adds, noting that one of his most important take aways was “You burn out if you do everything yourself.”



Building upon what he learned, for his next project Anand used his wages from his day job to hire two employees, who worked out of his apartment while he was at work.  This company was also web-based—a free search engine designed to help small businesses better connect with interested customers.  This venture, too, got great traction with 30,000 businesses signing up in the first six months.  But this business also failed.  Anand knew now how to target the market well, but he had no advertisements to generate revenue and was not familiar with other channels available.  “I didn’t  have the required knowledge to raise funding from Angels or VCs,” he says regretfully.



For his third, and ultimately successful company, Anand leveraged on all his experience—this time he wanted a business model that generated revenues and made profits.  To run his new company, a web-based job-seekers and employers matching service, Anand hired eight staff members and a general manager to help run the business.   The India-based company, Hugei, successfully competed against the big players in the market, eventually diversifying into headhunting and temp staffing.  However, Anand, who was working in the US at the time, ultimately decided to sell the company because working two jobs on opposite sides of the world was starting to take a toll on his health.



But this success left Anand with more questions.  How do you make a business successful in long run and create value for customers?  How do you make it big?



This is where IE came in.  Shortly after matriculating in IE’s International Masters of Business Administration program in April of 2011, Anand started taking full advantage of all that IE had to offer.

 

 Image
“IE is amazing at teaching general management and entrepreneurship,” Anand remembers, stating that he was extremely happy with the education that he received at IE.  The student body had a lot to do with that, he says—“people from so many countries together”—so many opportunities to learn from each other and build friendships.  Anand is especially adamant about the importance of this last one, stressing that it is incredibly important to build these long-term relationships because they form your network after graduation and will be helpful in your career later on.



In addition to the people, though, he remembers IE as having “amazing classes with case-study approach”. The case study methodology, he notes, is something IE uses particularly well.  In fact, Anand has kept all his case studies and still re-reads them to this day in order to gain a deeper understanding of various real-life challenges businesses face and the decisions they make to address them.  He also noted that IE’s emphasis on teaching soft-skills is extremely relevant in the “real world” for growing in one’s career.



During the second half of his MBA, Anand elected to take advantage of the partnerships offered by IE and do a long term exchange at The University of Chicago Booth School of Business.  Booth gave Anand the opportunity not only to work with entrepreneurs who had been in the field for a long time and learn in a hands-on environment, but also to build up relationships in the US.  In addition, Anand found the theory-based curriculum at Booth to be a nice compliment to IE’s case-method-based approach.



Upon his return to IE, Anand had the opportunity to chat with a representative of MIT Sloan School of Business, who was visiting Madrid to present IE’s joint program with MIT.  Because he was graduating, Anand was not eligible to enroll in the dual degree program, but the program advisor encouraged him to apply for MIT’s post-MBA Master of Science in Management Studies (MSMS).  Anand applied and was accepted into the program.  He was even able to convert his post IE job offer at an ecommerce startup in Indonesia into an internship so that he could start at MIT the following fall.



MIT gave Anand a chance to dive deeper into his interests through more focused electives.  He noted that because of his choice to attend Booth for a long exchange program, he had been restricted in the number of electives that he could take at IE.  Anand’s post-MBA studies allowed him to hone his skills in a highly international, friendly, and down-to-earth environment that he says reminded him of IE.



“MIT taught me to pursue what my passion is—not fads,” Anand remembers.  In fact, his education at MIT, allowed Anand to entertain the idea of interviewing for Amazon as Product Manager, a position he felt matched with his interest in building products by focusing on customers first.



Now, as he speaks to me from his office at Amazon, Anand talks about how he loves his job.   He talks about the leadership principle called “ownership” at Amazon which empowers the product managers to go beyond the ordinary, think big and raise the bar, and build products that address customer needs.  He speaks about how all he learned at IE, Booth, and MIT—from the finance skills he original lacked to the entrepreneurial thinking on which IE has built a reputation—has allowed him to be a successful product manager at the online retail giant.  He adds that perhaps, one day after Amazon, he can even re-apply those skills to return to the entrepreneurial world.  His education and experience have prepared him for a good future doing what he loves.



But now, looking back Anand offers those of us just beginning our journey at IE one final set of advice:  “Learn the ins and outs of business during the general management part of the program and deeply follow the case studies!  For the electives portion, follow up on skills in your basic toolset that you think you are still weak at and then dive deep into electives you enjoy.  Follow your passion—this will help you chose the right set of elective courses.  Follow your heart to choose your career!”

FROM IE Business School - International MBA Blog: IE Center for Diversity and IE Women in Business Club: “Take the Driver´s seat: Mentoring Program 2015″
 

Image

 

By Margarita Alonso, General Director – Fundación IEImage


 

YOUR LIFE IS YOUR BUSINESS

Wow! It is a privilege to work at IE. You meet interesting people all the time. The other day the Women Club and the Diversity Center, invited me to moderate a round table with Emma Fernandez, Senior Vice-President of INDRA;  Maria Eugenia Girón, entrepreneur and reference in luxury; Carmen García, Business Analytics Director of IBM and Rosa García Piñero, President of Alcoa Spain.

It was the kick-off event of the Mentoring program. By the way, several male students showed up!

It was so interesting, sorry if you missed it! I will drop the ideas mentioned in bullets, I hope at least you get a flavor of the relevant conversation we held.

 

Hofstede defines culture as “mental programming” and Shere Hite thinks there are a masculine and a feminine “sub-culture”. They were asked if to talk about women leadership means “decoding a previous programming “

  • They started with a tale: A Norwegian boy asked his mother “Mummy, I am a boy Can I be a Prime Minister?”
  • The first step for leadership is to know WHAT YOU WANT personally and professionally
  • To take time to understand your believes and your values
  • Leadership  means DECODING YOURSELF
These women are ice breakers and therefore belong to what sociologist call “creative minorities” exposed to constant trial and error because they are inaugurating new trials for women. They were also asked about their mistakes:

  • The worst mistake mentioned was “to limit myself”
  • Not to take more risk
  • To indulge my “orientation to action” in detriment of reflection, underestimating all variables and taking wrong decisions.
They were also asked about their main successes.

  • Things go right when you focus in your dreams
  • Sometimes I have said NO  to certain positions
  • To ask for a position
  • Normally, I have been successful when I REALLY wished something.
  • Take time to myself, every year I go back to school, maybe to learn Japanese Cocking
  • To dare!
  • To have the courage to ask
We reviewed IE´s values:  Diversity, Humanities, Social Responsibility and Entrepreneurship. Are we entrepreneurs only creating a start up? How can we be entrepreneurs of our own career?

  • We are not entrepreneurs of own careers we are entrepreneurs of our own lives. We have to be sure that our dreams are adjusted to this world!
  • It is not only fundamental TO DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT IN LIFE it is also necessary to define what your need to MAKE IT HAPPEN: create the conditions, build the connections etc.  “Your life is your business”
  • But entrepreneurship is also fully linked to big corporations and to any kind of job all. All workers have to undertake.
  • Life means planning, to find short term goals and to be flexible to review the path. The good thing of mistakes is that your retake from a better position, you are wiser, you have more experience, network etc.
  • I am a hard believer on “individual responsibility”
  • We are privileged people with access to all what is needed to reach leadership, education for example, but we have to realize that not everybody is so lucky.
Next question was about our professional role models.  Who are they?

  • People who balance their personal and professional life
  • There is not a single person, I got many things from many people
  • My father worked hard and taught us two things “enjoy what you do” and “do the best that your can do “
  • Mentees and Mentors
  • But they also mentioned negative role models “what I do not want to be”
We discussed about the theories of Soledad Murillo and Mª Angeles Duran regarding use of time, own time, public time and domestic time, Can we have it all? Can we ALWAYS  have it all?

  • We have to aim to have it all, and we have to underline the difference between REAL time and QUALITY time.
  • Life is a process that you have to ENJOY
  • ACHIEVEMENT  is a continuum,  it is the own trip
  • Have everything all the time, in exchange of what
  • You have to make decisions  and be CONSECUENT
  • You cannot have it all, you have to make trade offs
  • Leading men are never asked about personal life
  • Professional life is very long, more than 40 years
  • Corporate world has its rules you have to adapt; you are measured only by PERFORMANCE and VALUE . Being an entrepreneur is more flexible your partners and investors only look for those assets they do not mind how you do it
The Q&A session brought quotas to the table

  • I detest them but if in the European Union we did not have quotas the parliament would be dominated by German and French representatives.
  • When you keep five years with same low sales level in your company you have to try something different.

FROM IE Business School - International MBA Blog: Meet Nalin Sayal: International MBA graduate currently working for Credit Suisse in Dubai
Nalin Sayal, who just graduated in December 2014 from the International MBA tells us about his experience with this Global Firm.

Image

How did you find out about this job opportunity?

The Career Management Center hosted an event for Credit Suisse on campus in Dec 2013. I had some friends who had gone for the presentation and had informed me about it. I applied for it online the same week.

How did the CMC and your IE experience help you during the recruiting process?

Apart from the various tips and advice which we got for interviewing, I believe the MBA experience was particularly helpful with the numerous presentations one had to present at different stages, especially since presentations were a part of our daily routine at IE. One of the main tasks of the internship towards the end was to make a presentation in front of 10 people from the senior management of the bank and I feel I was at ease primarily due to the practice I had got during the MBA.

Image

How was the recruiting process: stages, tests, interviews, etc.?

The recruiting process was for the internship and consisted of 3 stages. I first flew to London for the day in late January to participate in a case study workshop, followed by 1-on-1 interviews. I recall the experience as being quite strenuous especially because I had a midterm exam back in Madrid the very next day, so for me time management was the challenge. After this interview, I was informed I was through to the next round. I then had 2 more interviews over videoconference (which was conveniently organized) at the Credit Suisse office in Madrid, close to campus on Calle Velazquez – both with the Zurich & Dubai teams. Round 1 was basically gauging your depth of knowledge on the financial markets and asset classes in general, and getting to know the candidate personally, while the other rounds were more to do with finding the ‘fit’. I recall making an elevator pitch for a particular situation when interviewing with the Dubai team, which came across as a surprise to me. The 10 week internship in Zurich itself was the real test, as you were working closely with different teams, and it was important to be consistently performing well and to be reactive/curious rather than just being proactive. I was given an offer in September 2014 for the Zurich, Geneva and Dubai offices, and eventually chose Dubai for personal reasons.

Would you want to share any tips, advice with current student interested in applying to Credit Suisse?

I believe applying early was helpful and I really do recommend tapping into any network (friends, family, acquaintances) you have at these banks/firms who can give you critical insights. It’s a small effort, which goes a long way, especially if it can help differentiate you from the others applying.

FROM IE Business School - International MBA Blog: IE Business School’s MBA program ranked No. 12 worldwide in FT’s 2015 MBA ranking
Image

IE Business School’s MBA program has been ranked No. 12 worldwide in FT’s 2015 MBA ranking. The result further consolidates IE Business School’s position as a leading international reference in the management education sector, coming soon after the  Bloomberg Businessweek ranking (November 2014), which placed IE’s MBA in the No. 2position worldwide and No. 1 in Europe in the Non-US business school category.

The Financial Times ranking examines 21 key indicators related to both the institution and to its graduates. The indicators include the extent of internationalization at the school, the scope of its programs, the degree to which graduates’ expectations are met, subsequent remuneration of graduates, the percentage of international professors and students, the percentage of female members of faculty and students, and levels of research.

IE Business School’s International MBA program is taught in English and Spanish, and runs for between 11 and 13 months. This year 91% of its student body are foreign students, hailing from 70 countries worldwide, making IE one of the most diverse business schools in the world. “We offer a unique environment where more than 90% of students are international, from a total of 70 countries. The IE MBA is a highly innovative program which fosters an entrepreneurial spirit, challenges conventional ways of thinking, and conveys the importance of leaving a positive mark on society,” says  Erik Schlie, Vice Dean for MBA Programs at IE Business School.

IE Business School’s MBA program portfolio includes part-time programs like its Global MBA, considered the world’s best MBA Online (2014 FT ranking), and the IE-SMU MBA, a program run jointly with Singapore Management University and focused on economic and business realities in the Asia Pacific region. IE’s Executive MBA, with English and Spanish language versions, is available in both onsite and blended formats and runs for between 10 and 15 months. The School’s Global Executive MBA is geared to meet the needs of top managers and combines onsite sessions held in Spain, Singapore, Brazil and the US, with online modules. IE also offers the IE/Brown Executive MBA run jointly with Ivy League member Brown University, with online modules run between onsite periods held in Madrid, Providence, (US) and Cape Town (South Africa).

FROM IE Business School - International MBA Blog: IE Humanities Center hosted a session led by the director of ARCO, Carlos Urroz, and by Arte Global’s CEO, Elisa Hernando
February in Madrid means ART!

 

Image

 

ARCO Madrid the yearly art fair in Madrid opens and on thursday, February 19, the IE Humanities Center hosted a session on All you always wanted to know about Collecting Art (But were afraid to ask) – 10 tips to start buying contemporary art. The event adopted a workshop format and was led by the director of Madrid’s Contemporary art fair ARCO, Carlos Urroz, and by Arte Global’s CEO, Elisa Hernando. The event was introduced by IE’s Dean of Humanities, Arantza de Areilza, followed by presentations by the speakers. Mr. Urroz focused on the aesthetic side and Ms. Hernando on the investment side.

Mr. Urroz was the first to speak. He started by sharing his favorite contemporary artworks to “get the audience in a contemporary art mood.”  He shared four pieces by renowned 20th century artists Pablo Picasso, Kazimir Malevich, Marcel Duchamp and Joseph Beuys. He then offered 10 tips to start collecting contemporary art. Some were based on common sense, such as telling the audience to buy art that they like, or not to think that they have to buy expensive pieces. Others were more practical, like doing research on the artist and using fairs as a chance to compare prices. And some were extremely insightful, such as the recommendation that the purchaser should always buy something that reflects the time they are living in, as contextualization plays an important role in collecting art. He also talked about ARCO, the Art Fair he directs, describing it as quite strong in the Latin American market, and as a place that collectors go on the lookout for young, upcoming artists.

Ms. Hernando began her talk by giving examples of collectors that love the art works they purchase which then go on to become enormously valuable, like a young French couple who bought a Picasso when he was an unknown artist for a ridiculously small amount. Sixty years later when the couple died their heirs had to sell it in order to pay the taxes on its worth, gaining millions in the process. She told her audience that they should buy art for the same reason they dance, because they like it. Ms. Hernando went on to examine the profits involved in investing in art, using the Mei Moses Index to support her arguments to show the profit margins generated by art. She also shared with the public the fact that Chinese and Russian collectors are currently snapping up most of the art market. Finally she talked about her First Collector initiative. Run under the aegis of ARCO and supported by Banco Santander, First Collector aims to provide advice for people who want to become collectors.

The lecture was followed by a long Q&A session of some 45 minutes, in the course of which IE students asked a large number of questions about collecting, art valuation, art fairs, artists, etc. After 1 hour and 30 minutes this extremely interesting workshop on how to build an art collection came to an end.

When negotiations are completed, this EU-US agreement would be the biggest bilateral trade deal ever negotiated.

DOING BUSINESS IN SOUTHEAST ASIA – Short Exchange to Singapore during   [#permalink]

FROM IE Business School - International MBA Blog: DOING BUSINESS IN SOUTHEAST ASIA – Short Exchange to Singapore during the International MBA program
Image

 

By Alexander Afanasyev, current IMBA student

“No! Come on, it’s not fair! You treat us like if we were kids who got into a candy shop, yet were not allowed to buy anything…” – was just one of the exclamations that we heard today. Indeed, Wednesday was completely packed. We did not get to spare even a single moment for personal wants and wishes. The business agenda was the silent driver of the day. But oh boy, what a day it was! The emotional roller coaster of IE MBA that we were promised by Erik Schlie on the day of initiation has written an entire chapter in our hearts. Starting with an absolutely brilliant four hours lecture on Economics of Japan, China and India, the explorers of IE took on another adventure “Doing business in Southeast Asia”. Little did we know that the company visit would turn into a full scale business quest on Sentosa, the island resort visited by approximately twenty million people annually. Imagine the land of dreams that you dreamt of when you were a little kid. Well, we had 26 kids today, laughing and larking about like crazy. Universal Studios Singapore, S.E.A. Aquarium, Adventure Cove Waterpark, Dolphin Island – the places to be. Two hours of field studies were gone in the blink of an eye. We came back to the hotel utterly exhausted, but ultimately happy: IE IMBA has once again given us something we could not dream about. Business is a relentless machine that can drain you out, but be alert, find that little kid inside yourself and you will never be bored!

Thank you IE for reminding us of the eternal values!
