Guys

In case you have missed attending this article on Poets & Quants. Foster has beaten MIT, Northwestern, Duke, Columbia, Ross in terms of "the percentage of its graduating students moving to a technical background". I was super happy to learn this and thought I should share it with you all -

Predicting Coffee Demand with a Crystal Ball: My summer internship at   [#permalink]

FROM Foster Admissions Blog: Predicting Coffee Demand with a Crystal Ball: My summer internship at Starbucks
This week we have a great post by Peter Kazarian (Class of 2016)! You might remember him from his writeup on the Japan study tour and the 2015 Silicon Valley Tech Trek. Just last summer, Peter had a great opportunity to intern at Starbucks in their channel development department. Read on for more about his experience at one of the most exciting brands in the world!

Image
Peter and other 2015 Starbucks Interns, Day 1. Learning what it means #ToBeAnIntern

Predicting Coffee Demand with a Crystal Ball
That might sound like something out of Harry Potter. But in the plain ol’ world of normal economics, it describes my 10-week internship at Starbucks HQ. At the Starbucks Support Center (aka the “SSC”), the iconic Starbucks green siren lady overlooks Seattle at 2401 Utah St South. Over 3,500 employees walk the halls, typing, sipping and lab-testing our way to caffeine excellence on 6 continents.

How’d I Get There?
How’d I get there? Foster’s On-Campus Recruiting office connected us with Starbucks’ University Recruiting team – and a selected group of classmates interviewed for the pleasure of becoming a “partner,” as all Starbucks employees are known. I got the call and the offer in the middle of my Foster Study Tour in Japan and celebrated a bit too loudly in a hotel lobby for 6am Tokyo time.

The Internship
Internship programs can differ, with some firms hiring based on short term need and budget. Starbucks takes a longer, more deliberate approach. With part MBAs and the rest technical and undergrad interns, there was a formal on-boarding program, weekly meetings with SVP/C-suite leadership, and great experiences like a Sounders game or fancy catered dinners at museums. You also get a free pound of coffee per week, just like if you were a store partner. One of my favorite parts was the connections we were able to form with MBAs from other schools like Kellogg, Booth and Stanford – now good friends of mine who are returning next summer.

My department was under the Channel Development arm of Starbucks, which included Consumer Packaged Goods and anything else not in a Starbucks retail store, like grocery bottled Frappuccinos, licensed stores, and in my case, bulk B2B customers like airlines, hotel chains, restaurants and campus cafes. As part of the Digital and Loyalty team, my main project this summer involved e-commerce enhancements to our B2B team’s website, and forecasting new sales revenue and cost savings from these changes.

The Single Most Helpful Thing
My e-commerce and direct marketing background really helped me understand the data I was working with. Over six years in digital and advertising agencies, running reports, doing quality assurance on microsites, making databases play nice with one another – those were past marketing experiences I could lean on. But I really benefitted from a few specific Foster classes I had taken. Dr. Foad Iravani’s Business Statistics class helped me become more confident at “talking about numbers”, not just reading them. Elizabeth Stearns’ Advertising and Promotions class was great exposure to the artifice and skills that make a good pitch/presentation.

The single most helpful thing wasn’t a class, though. While quarterbacking this complex project between three Starbucks stakeholder teams, I really relied on all the team-focused group work that Foster builds into almost every class. Sure, I was using some technical skills I’d brought with me to Seattle, but things like delegating, project planning, and checking in without micromanaging helped me “land the plane” with a much more complex project than I’d ever done before.

The “Where Are You Going?” Question
And it went great! My initiative (part of a larger plan) received a green light, the final presentation was well received, and I’ll be returning to Starbucks next summer as a Product Manager. Also I got to meet Howard Schultz for like 30 seconds one time. I had a great experience this summer, and I’m lucky to have the “where are you going” question answered early. My Foster classmates and I are happy to head back for the weekly coffee tastings, sample kitchens and food truck pods, once we graduate of course.

Maybe I’ll see you there!

About the Author

Prior to Foster, Peter Kazarian was a lifelong Californian and veteran of the LA/SF digital/ad agency scene. As a digital strategist, he focused on web strategy, e-commerce and database-driven marketing for major nonprofits like the American Red Cross and the City of Hope cancer treatment center.

After winning a few industry-specific awards, he came to Foster to move fully into consumer marketing on behalf of for-profits. He really enjoys his UW education and bonding with classmates and alums, and he had a great time working at Starbucks HQ doing Brand and Channel marketing this past summer. When not networking or studying, he spends his time cooking, hiking, and going deep in the blogosphere. And trying to adjust to the PNW’s weather and lack of Mexican food.

Submitted on 1/13/2016, received video interview invite today. It's not the formal admission interview, just supplement of the application materials. I felt its similar to Kellogg's video essay.

"
Thank you for applying to the Foster School of Business Full-time MBA Program at the University of Washington. We are currently in the process of reviewing the applications received on January 15th, and you have been selected to participate in a video interview. This is different from an admission interview in that the questions have been pre-recorded and you will record the video on your own time. Once you have completed your video, it will be added to your application for further review. Please note that some candidates who complete the video interview may still be invited to complete a formal admission interview at a later date, as we continue issuing invitations throughout the review period.

The video interview invitation and instructions will be sent out via e-mail later today, and your deadline to complete the video is Wednesday, February 10th. You will find detailed instructions on completing the video interview once you register using the link provided in the e-mail. If you do not receive the invitation e-mail within the next 24 hours, first check your junk mail folder. Gmail users may also want to check the “promotions” tab if the e-mail does not show up in your main inbox.

Thank you again for your interest in Foster. We look forward to getting to know you better!

I just received the invite for the video interview which I'll have to complete by the 10th.

Based on the mail, I might also be invited for an admissions interview later on.

Excited! ☺
