 FROM From Bench to Board (Fuqua): Health Care Experiences at Duke MBA (Health Care Club) One of the most attractive aspects of the Duke MBA for me was to be surrounded by other students who were passionate about health care.

 FROM From Bench to Board (Fuqua): Duke MBA Fall 2 Courses Fall 2 is the second 6-week term for the Duke MBA. 1st year students continue to take core courses and this is also when recruiting really heats up for the consulting and finance folks.

 FROM Piyush Jain Everyday (UCLA): Notes from “The Firm: The Story of McKinsey and Its Secret Influence on American Business” – McDonald, Duff Good read about McKinsey and the evolution of consulting industry.29 May 2014 - 7 July 2014The McKinsey consultant should make his way into his community’s establishment: He was expected to join local boards, get involved in charities, and even attend church.Second, the McKinsey consultant had to inspire confidence with his appearance.Long socks were required because Bower abhorred the sight of “raw flesh.”And then there is McKinsey, projecting an image which suggests that, if God decides to redo creation, He will call in McKinsey.It’s the only job I can think of where you start in general management, and then, if you’re successful, you end up in sales,” said an alumnus of the firm.Barbara Minto’s The Pyramid Principle: Logic in Writing, Thinking, and Problem SolvingThe most successful McKinsey consultants are networkers of the highest order.Deal-making skills have become more important than scale or scope, and strategic insight and foresight more important than structural positionRestless curiosityMcKinsey alumnus Paul Chellgren, who went on to become president of Ashland Oil, explained the preference to BusinessWeek in 1993: “[Working at McKinsey provides] a cram course in business experience,” he said. “It was a compressed opportunity to see a lot of companies, industries, and problems in a short period of time.McKinsey’s employs an objectivist, skeptical, fact-based, integrative, and analytical approach to solving its clients’ problems.All Excerpts from Duff, McDonald. “The Firm: The Story of McKinsey and Its Secret Influence on American Business.” Simon & SchusterThis material may be protected by copyright.

 FROM From Bench to Board (Fuqua): Should you get an MBA or an industry position? Please note: this post was written back in 2013 when I just started my MBA. I'll update this again later as now have more insights to share as an MBA student. In addition, the original target audience for this post are scientists, although general principles will apply to all backgrounds.With the scarcity in academic job openings, many, if not most, life sciences professionals are considering industry positions. This was definitely the prevailing sentiment at the 2013 NIH career symposium. A commonly asked question at these events is, "should I pursue an MBA to enhance my resume, or should I just try to find a job at a company?"Continue reading »
