This fall, five top business schools are launching the M2M, a portfolio of double degreesgiving recent university graduates the opportunity to complete two master’s degrees by attending two top business schools in two different countries over two years.

This initiative is an effort by leading business schools on multiple continents to meet the demands of a globalized economy and provide future business leaders with a distinctive learning experience that will accelerate their careers.

The M2M programs are a collaboration among five schools: FGV Escola de Administração de Empresas de São Paulo, HEC Paris, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Business School, Sauder School of Business University of British Columbia, and the Yale School of Management.

David Bach, Deputy Dean at Yale SOM, says that the M2M is all about choice: “Whatever pathway students choose, young leaders who are interested in having impact throughout their careers will quickly develop skills that set them apart in the global marketplace, while building a deep network of like-minded peers around the world. The world needs more globally minded leaders, not fewer, and with this initiative we seek to positively impact organizations confronting challenging issues at the nexus of business and society.”

The five participating schools are all members of the Global Network for Advanced Management, a network of top business schools committed to educating global leaders through collaboration and innovation.

Six M2M double degrees are available as of September 2017 for student applications: FGV-Yale, HEC-FGV, HEC-HKUST, HEC-Yale, HKUST-Yale, and Sauder-Yale. After they complete both academic years, students will graduate with two master’s degrees, one from each school they attended. Graduates will be alumni of both schools and will have access to the schools’ career resources.

This innovative program gives ambitious students an unparalleled advantage by grounding them in the distinctive academic cultures and approaches of two top business schools in different countries, while preparing them for global roles. Students get the chance to study alongside peers from all continents with diverse experiences. They will benefit from curricular and extracurricular collaborations among the schools, highly personalized career services, and the networks of two global business schools.

“The innovation here is to go to the market with a range of world class academic partners sharing joint admission processes and aiming at recruiting together a significant number of students,” says HEC Paris Dean Peter Todd. “We are convinced that this offer meets the demand of growing numbers of extremely talented and globally-mobile students who target prestigious double degree programs as passports for international careers.”

Having the opportunity to learn from the best and brightest minds in business is one of the top motivators for many applicants considering an MBA degree at an elite business school. The professors and lecturers you’ll encounter have worked in the trenches, and bring an incredible wealth of real-world experiences into the classroom setting.

In our new limited series of professor interviews on the SBC blog, readers will get to know a bit more about these brilliant academics, what fields most excite them, the trends they foresee, what they enjoy most about teaching at their respective universities, and how it all comes together with their students.

Today we’ll introduce you to Dr. Anne-Laure Sellier, Associate Professor of Marketing at HEC Paris.  Prior to joining HEC Paris, Sellier was a faculty member at the London Business School, and at the Stern School of Business of New York University. She also taught at the Columbia Business School.

Her current research interests are in the area of time perception influences on decision-making, creativity, self-regulation, self-control, consumer happiness, cognitive biases, and generally in how emotions and cognitions interact in judgment and decision-making.

Education: Ph.D. in Management

Courses Taught: Creativity Accelerators, Consumer Behavior, Decision Making and Influence
What triggered your interest in your subject matter?
Creativity is our highest cognitive function and remains poorly understood. I am keen on pursuing creativity-related topics as there is so much to discover, and so much of the environment that we currently live on quite simply stifles creativity that studying the simple changes we can implement is very enjoyable.

My interest in time perception comes from another simple observation: we do not make decisions and evaluate things and people around us in a temporal vacuum. Considerable research shows that the timing of our thoughts dramatically influences the quality of the decisions we make. Equally critical to understanding how to make good decisions is to investigate when to make them.

Finally, my interest in social influence comes from the fact that we live in a world in which making decisions alone is remarkably rare. Others surround us and influence us, either directly (i.e., others are physically near us) or indirectly (e.g., we are surfing the Internet knowing that others are surfing the same platform).

We’ve known for a while that social influence has powerful influences on the way we think and behave. In a world more social than ever, it appears critical to understand the specific influences that a single person, a hundred people, or a million views can have on our decision making.
What’s changed since you entered the field?
Modern societies changed, with the technological revolution. The way we live, work, communicate, and meditate about the world (or simply waste time online) has dramatically changed in the past 15 years, and we don’t understand much of what the world will look like in twenty years from now, due to this rapid rate of change.

Our thinking gets obviously affected, and it is timely — in fact, urgent — to understand the benefits and disadvantages of this technological revolution.
Any surprising or unique applications of your field of study?
Of course! Scientific discovery is all about carving out applications that people would not have thought of ex ante, so they are by definition surprising. One finding, for instance, is that the presence of a clock in a room can take control out of people’s minds — they instantly feel that things happen in the world more randomly, which is a problem if these people are CEOs (as CEOs are hopefully feeling responsible for the actions they take).
What do you like about the school you are teaching at?
HEC has sensational students. Not only are they smart, they also typically received a renaissance education, which makes it rewarding to exchange with them on how to best solve business issues that they will be confronted with.
What can you do in the classroom to best prepare students for the real world?
Practice, practice, practice solving business issues with…themselves. It is one thing to understand good rational thinking in theory, and another to know how you make decisions (well or not) and how you make them when working in groups (you’re a different animal with others).

I try to make students aware as much as possible of these different selves they have, so they know how to navigate their own decision-making optimally after school (e.g., which type of company should they join? Which kind of team culture? Etc.).
What are you most excited about that’s happening in your field?
I’m excited about the fact that data has become easier and cheaper to get than ever, and that we can obtain it on an unprecedented large-scale. With big data and artificial intelligence, we are now able to empirically test certain predictions more convincingly than before. In psychology, this promises to make a tremendous difference.
Can you speak to interesting trends in your field?
The trend I am most excited about is that fewer research papers should get published, as the standards for research excellence are becoming more and more stringent. This means that slow research is coming back — they has been a tendency to publish away, too many papers, too quickly, with the major downside of encouraging the publication of marginally interesting findings.
Best advice for an aspiring business mogul?
Please orient your business as much as you can to solving the environmental crisis. This should be the higher-order goal of your business.
What’s the impact you want to leave on your students? … On the world?
Help them see what they feel they are to accomplish in their lives. Create value for the world, the most important being the preservation of our environment.

Thank you so much Professor Sellier for sharing your insights and experiences with our readers! You can watch Sellier’s fascinating TED Talk video on clock timers vs even timers— “What how you view time says about you”—at TEDxHEC Paris.
