Despite COVID-19, IU student chapter finishes third in American Market  [#permalink]

FROM Kelley MBA Blog: Despite COVID-19, IU student chapter finishes third in American Marketing Association’s national case competition
Image

 

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Despite not being able to make their presentation in person, a team of Kelley School of Business students in Indiana University’s student chapter of the American Marketing Association came in third in the professional organization’s national case competition.

In February, students and their advisors – Greg Kitzmiller, I-Core case coordinator and Uline Distinguished Lecturer in Marketing and Jennifer Riley Simone, a lecturer in marketing — learned that their team was one of 11 teams in the National AMA Collegiate Case Competition.

It was the first time that the IU AMA student chapter had qualified for the national finals since being established in 2010. More than 400 AMA student chapters worldwide participate in the competition annually.

The AMA Collegiate Case Competition is a year-long event that brings together top marketing students to work on a business challenge, which this year was submitted by Cotton Inc. Each AMA chapter team developed a 40-page recommendation to combat a lack of awareness among 15- to 18-year-old Americans regarding the fiber-content of their clothing. Cotton Inc. invested $1.5 million into the winning strategy.

Two days before students were scheduled to leave for New Orleans and the AMA International Collegiate Conference in mid-March, they learned their travel plans were cancelled due to COVID-19. Students initially were heartbroken upon learning they wouldn’t be able to attend the conference.

Image
“We knew not travelling with the virus rapidly spreading was perhaps the best decision for our health, which ultimately is the most important thing. But at the same time, we had invested so much of our time and energy into this case,” said Avni Gupta, a senior from New Delhi majoring in marketing and business analytics. “We were hoping and trying to at least get a chance to present virtually. Even though we knew we could not be as impactful as we would have been in-person, we simply wanted a chance to compete.”

“We had put in countless hours as a team to get to this point and I was so worried we were not going to have the opportunity to show off all our hard work,” added Taylor Garvey, a senior from Apple Valley, Minnesota majoring in marketing and professional sales. “Kitz (Kitzmiller) advocated on our behalf to move the case presentations online. Ultimately, AMA nationals decided to cancel the in-person presentations and replace them with video presentations. This ultimately was the best possible outcome given the circumstances, as it leveled the playing field and still allowed us to compete while remaining safe.”

Students rushed to make a video in the Brian D. Jellison Studio before they left for the corners of the globe. “We are very proud of the team’s efforts, both in preparing and presenting the case,” said Riley Simone.

Other lessons learned

In addition to the experience of competing in the competition, Maria Logue, a senior from Gurnee, Illinois majoring in marketing, said she learned and felt the impact of resilience. “My teammates and I spent our time leading up to the video thinking about how we could make it the best it could be, rather than dwelling on what it couldn’t be,” she said. “We made the absolute most of the situation and performed the best an IU chapter ever has in this case competition.”

Satvika Kalia, a senior from Gurgaon, Haryana, India majoring in economics and international law in the Liberal Arts & Management Program, joined Gupta, Garvey and Logue in presenting the case via video. Chloe Meyer served as an alternate throughout the presentation preparation.

“The biggest lesson or realization I had during this experience was the value of a strong team,” Kalia said. “This was, by far, the most positive team experience in my career as a student and as a young professional … We all brought our strengths and respected each other for their skills to produce a strong, well-articulated case.

“It was this team dynamic that allowed the transition due to COVID-19 seem like an adventure instead of a challenge,” she added. “These women motivate me, push me, inspire me, and most importantly, support me and for this I am inherently grateful.”

“Comfortably You” was the theme of the IU chapter’s campaign. It was “the intersection between feeling comfortable in your own skin and the idea that cotton is comfortable,” Logue described in the presentation. “That’s why we positioned our campaign as something that makes teenagers feel comfortable with who they are.”

The 19 other members of the IU team were Ariana Huang, Aryaman Sojitra, Bailey Foster, Drew Gatman, Emma Bloomfield, Grant Huston, Hannah Wang, Hunter Mauer, Jason Wu, Jenny Yun, Jin Chung, Josh Gerczak, Karan Jain, Mac Schneider, Maeve Randall, Michelle Gudiel, Mylinh Tieu, Preethi Kalyanakumar, Sanskar Gupta, Sara Peal, and Taylor Worthington.

The IU AMA Chapter holds programming throughout the school year, from roundtables with corporate sponsors, to skills training and community outreach. The mission behind all of IU AMA’s activities is to create better marketers.

FROM Kelley MBA Blog: Dean’s statement on Kelley’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusivity
To the Kelley Community,

Last week in our country, we experienced one of the most tragic weeks imaginable in our lifetimes.  This description is not simply a reference to the more than 100,000 lives lost to COVID-19.  This statement is a reflection of the horror we all witnessed in the killing of George Floyd.  Mr. Floyd’s tragic death has led to an understandable sense of fear, outrage, sadness and discontent in addition to feelings of powerlessness.  And it is an all-too-familiar example of the injustices against the African American community in this nation – an injustice that is grossly disproportionate in its impact on this community.  It is an injustice so great that we are left wondering if, when and how we can heal as a country.

This year, I had the privilege of spending time visiting civil rights museums in Montgomery, Alabama.  If you have never been to the Legacy Museum and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, I urge you to go.  This is far from my first visit to a memorial aimed at educating us on the important issues of social injustice. But this memorial, like no other place I have visited, focuses the mind on racial terrorism.  As you walk silently through the solemn spaces that capture the horror of slavery and lynchings, you are reminded of a dark, dark history in the chapter of the American experience.  Sadly, the events of this past week – and really more than that, the events of the past few years – remind us all that the word “history” is not the proper word.  History implies a sense of the past, and our country is clearly not past this dark chapter. We continue to live elements of it over and over again.

I am not a politician. I don’t have the power to change laws and leaders other than through my vote – my powerful, constitutionally granted vote.  But, I am a parent and an educator. As a mother, I cannot imagine, nor will I ever fully appreciate, the unbearable sadness and grief other parents are having to endure, especially if a loved one has been lost due to the injustice we are witnessing. Nor can I imagine the impossibility of having to make sense of this to a young child or even a young adult.

As an educator, I have always believed in the power of education as a tool to enlighten and uplift. And, like you, I have a voice.  It is my hope that in this collective moment of grief, we use our voices to speak up and educate those around us about injustices that can no longer be tolerated in our society. As Martin Luther King Jr. stated, “True peace is not the absence of tension:  it is the presence of justice.”

Please find ways to support each other during this time. If you are a student, check in on your classmates. Check in on your friends and your neighbors too. Be a beacon for change that is accomplished peacefully but powerfully in its impact. Whether you influence one or hundreds, each of us, in ways we are uniquely and individually qualified, can use our skills and knowledge to make a difference. I believe in our school’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusivity, and I pray you do, too. I ask that all of us – students, faculty, staff, and alumni – come back together this fall and bring our ideas for how we can strengthen diversity, equity, and inclusivity of our Kelley community.

Please stay safe.

Idalene “Idie” Kesner

FROM Kelley MBA Blog: Three Kelley graduates recognized for their service on the school’s alumni association board
Image

 

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Three Indiana University Kelley School of Business alumni who are remarkable leaders in their industries have made immense contributions to the school and its leadership network — Steve Coverick, Shannon Watkins and Eric Derheimer. Their terms on the board of the Kelley School of Business Alumni Association end June 30.

They are being honored June 5, during their last board meeting, which was held virtually due to the pandemic.

Coverick, B.S. ‘09, a director with Alvarez & Marsal’s North American turnaround and restructuring practice in Dallas, served as president of the Kelley School of Business Alumni Association in 2018-19. Watkins, (pictured above) MBA ’02, Aflac’s senior vice president, brand and creative services, has been on the board since 2017. Derheimer, B.S. ‘04, managing director at CID Capital, was an inaugural member of the Kelley Leadership and Development Council in 2014 and has served as its Chair since July 2015.

“Steve, Eric, and Shannon represent some of our most invested and involved alums. Their contributions to the Kelley School of Business Alumni Association range from updating our mission and guiding principles to providing thought leadership to our board and councils,” said Derek Hicks, MBA ’02, current president of the Kelley School of Business Alumni Association and vice president, corporate development at Pfizer Inc.

Idalene “Idie” Kesner, dean of the Kelley School and the Frank P. Popoff Chair of Strategic Management, praised contributions made by everyone serving on the KSBAA board and thanked Derheimer, Coverick and Watkins for their efforts benefiting fellow alumni as well as current students and faculty.

“The Kelley School of Business simply wouldn’t be as good as it is without our alums, and these three alumni have been valuable leaders as Kelley has increased in size and influence over the last few years,” Kesner said. “We will definitely miss their work with the KSBAA, but I know they will continue to be valuable ambassadors for Kelley.”

Steve Coverick

Coverick (pictured left) has enjoyed a successful career in corporate financial advising and has worked with clients across a wide range of industries, including telecommunications, media, technology, professional services, education, energy, life sciences, hospitality, chemicals and manufacturing. He played a pivotal role on the KSBAA’s Executive Committee and previously served in numerous roles on the board, from leading its Leadership and Development Council to enhancing the strategy and structure of the board.

Kelley undergraduates receiving their degrees in 2018 and 2019 may fondly recall Coverick as their recognition ceremony speaker, who asked them each year to join him in a selfie during the ceremony.

“Steve is one of the proudest and most passionate Kelley alums that I know,” Hicks said. “He also served as a mentor and friend to me and I will truly miss his wisdom and passion for the Kelley School of Business.”

Shannon Watkins

Watkins is responsible for brand strategy, advertising, media, experiential marketing, creative services, and event production at Aflac. Previously, she served in various brand and general management roles at The Coca-Cola Company, Kraft Foods, Conagra Foods, and Procter & Gamble. In 2017, she was recognized with a Cannes Award for her work on POWERADE’s “Just a Kid” campaign that featured entertainers Tupac Shakur and Al Pacino, and athletes such as the NBA player Derrick Rose, the NFL tight end Jimmy Graham and U.S. Women’s Soccer Team co-captain Alex Morgan.

Other honors include being recognized as a “woman to watch” from Brand Innovators and the recipient of the Kelley Brand Leaders Award from Indiana University in 2018.

“Our board has been very fortunate to have Shannon contribute her time and resources to advance the mission of the KSBAA Board of Directors,” Hicks said. “Most recently, Shannon agreed to co-lead our Marketing council to help the KSBAA take our branding and marketing efforts to another level. I will miss Shannon’s participating the board, and we look forward to her continued insight and support even as she moves on from this role as a board member.”

Eric Derheimer

Image
Derheimer (pictured right) is a managing director at CID Capital, a private equity firm in Indianapolis that has invested in privately held businesses across the United States and Canada for more than 35 years. His primary responsibilities include managing the investment process for new investments and portfolio company support. He serves on the board of CID’s investments in Classic Accessories, Giftcraft and Strahman Valves and previously was a vice president in Greenhill & Co.’s industrial mergers and acquisitions group in Chicago.

“Eric has dedicated a significant amount of his time over the last several years to our alumni network in Indianapolis and across the country,” Hicks said. “In addition, he has made significant contributions to our board in this capacity and also as a strategic though leader to our Executive Council.

“I would personally like to thank all three of these amazing alums for their commitment to our board, and we look forward to engaging with them in different ways in the future. On behalf of the KSBAA, we would like to thank each of you for your tremendous contributions to this board and our alums.”

As international academic conferences are cancelled because of COVID-1  [#permalink]

FROM Kelley MBA Blog: As international academic conferences are cancelled because of COVID-19, Kelley faculty step forward to host them virtually
Image

 

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Much has been reported about efforts at Indiana University and the Kelley School of Business to provide students with a high-quality educational experience online, but two major conferences hosted virtually by the school also demonstrate its ability to use the same technology to advance research knowledge.

In the aftermath of the novel coronavirus pandemic and travel restrictions, scholars worldwide have been prevented from traveling to academic conferences to present their work and discuss topics of mutual interest.

Many academic, industry and tech conferences have been cancelled, rescheduled or moved online. They included the Conference on Financial Economics and Accounting – which Kelley will host in 2021 — major conferences presented by the American Marketing Association and the Financial Intermediation Research Society

In response, Kelley has been a leader in pivoting to present conferences online, drawing upon its considerable expertise in online education.

The University of North Carolina originally had planned to host the Society for Financial Studies’ 2020 North American Cavalcade. The annual event was nearly cancelled until finance faculty at Kelley offered to host it online. Their efforts built on the success of another event moved online, the annual Albert Haring Symposium on April 17-18, organized by Kelley’s Department of Marketing.

Learning from the Haring Symposium

Since 1971, the invitation-only Haring Symposium has provided an important venue for doctoral students at Big Ten universities and guest schools to present their marketing research. It was named for Albert Haring, a Kelley professor from 1939 to 1971, who was a past president of the American Marketing Association and an outstanding scholar in sales management, channels and credit.

Since its inception, more than 900 doctoral students have participated in the symposium and more than 400 faculty members have shared their insights on a variety of areas.

As the date for the Haring Symposium approached, marketing faculty members considered cancelling the event, “but made the bold decision to move forward, even though they were blazing the trail for virtual conferences at Kelley,” said Laureen Maines, executive associate dean of faculty and research at Kelley and the KPMG Professor of Accounting.

Image
At the Haring Symposium, Professor Juanjuan Zhang of the MIT Sloan School of Management presented fascinating research on what drives consumer engagement in movies such as “The Hunger Games.” Also pictured are Kelley’s Raymond Burke and Krista Lee.
After deciding to proceed online, organizers looked for ways to innovate. For example, they developed social and themed breakout sessions where participants could have conversations with each other, similar to those they normally would have had in person at the conference and at lunches and dinners. The event was renamed the “2020 Haring Cyber Symposium” to emphasize the newness of the format and also to preserve plans to celebrate the 50th in-person edition of the event in 2021.

“The program was split evenly between two days to encourage participation and reduce ‘Zoom fatigue,’” said Raymond Burke, chairperson and professor of marketing, the E.W. Kelley Chair and director of the Customer Interface Laboratory. “Several changes were made to the 2020 Symposium to encourage faculty and doctoral student participation and to minimize the risk of disruption due to technology failures or health concerns.”

“Although the Haring Symposium is a smaller conference, it was the first virtual conference held at Kelley as a result of the pandemic and provided much of the foundation for the success of the SFS Cavalcade conference,” Maines added.

First large scale financial conference held virtually

Kelley’s virtual hosting of the 2020 Society for Financial Studies Cavalcade on May 25-28 similarly went smoothly and without glitches.

“This was the first large-scale finance conference – with 135 papers on the program — to be held virtually,” said Craig Holden (pictured right), Finance Department chair and the Gregg T. and Judith A. Summerville Chair of Finance. “There was no registration fee for the conference and it was opened to all registrants who could be verified from around the world. As a result, more than 2,000 people registered for the conference. And they came from 44 countries around the world. This was a truly global conference.”

Each session averaged nearly 50 participants and with nine parallel sessions happening concurrently, there was an average of 437 participants at any moment overall.

“This is far more participation than in-person Cavalcade conferences in past years,” Holden said, adding that participation did not suffer a steep drop on the conference’s third and final day, as is usually the case with an in-person conference, when many leave early for the airport.

Nearly every Kelley finance professor served as a faculty host of a track in their area of research or helped host social reception rooms.

Kelley’s efforts to host the Cavalcade received rave reviews, including from current and former editors of top finance journals. One praised Kelley for “the magnificent effort and the efficient organization of the Cavalcade,” adding that “it was so nicely organized that they would not let their dean know, because otherwise they would have to answer the question: If you can organize successful conferences online, why travel in the future?”

Both conferences underscore Kelley’s tradition of adapting to ever changing needs and delivering knowledge using the latest technological tools. Its No. 1 ranked Kelley Direct online MBA program began in 1999 — the first online MBA program offered by a top-ranked business school – and has been imitated and rarely emulated. Other degree programs at Kelley deliver a quality education online.

“The Kelley School’s leadership in hosting these two virtual research conferences reflects not only our faculty’s outstanding research capabilities and enthusiasm, but also their ability to create momentum and innovation from difficult situations,” Maines said. “The faculty seized the opportunity to re-imagine these two conferences and worked with our outstanding technology team to make their vision a reality.

“Their entrepreneurial spirit and tenacity in the face of challenges is a hallmark of the Kelley School’s success. I am so proud of the faculty’s accomplishments and look forward to seeing their innovations for future virtual conferences.”

Kelley course on the business culture of Greece honored by Greek Minis  [#permalink]

FROM Kelley MBA Blog: Kelley course on the business culture of Greece honored by Greek Ministry of Tourism
Image

 

ATHENS – Sadly, study abroad programs for Indiana University students were cancelled this summer due to the current pandemic and the U.S. Department of State’s worldwide travel advisory. This impacted numerous international experiences for students in the IU Kelley School of Business, including those who normally enroll in Tatiana Kolovou’s “Business Culture of Greece” course.

Although the Athens native couldn’t return with her students during spring break to the land of her birth, Kolovou was honored on June 3 with one of the annual Greek Tourism Awards sponsored by the Greek Ministry of Tourism. She received a Silver Award in the educational program category.

This is the seventh year for these awards, which reward innovative ways to promote understanding and spur interest in traveling to Greece.

In recognizing Kolovou, pictured above with her students in 2014, the awards committee said the Kelley course “contributes significantly to the local economy and positively shapes the views of the new generation for Greece.”

Like other economies that rely on tourism, COVID-19 has vastly impacted Greece beyond public health concerns. “The best, the special, the innovative, are the ones who guide us like lighthouses in times of uncertainty and darkness,” Harris Theocharis, Greece’s minister of tourism, said all of the winners. “To those who dare to see the sun through the clouds.”

Over the last decade, Kolovou, a senior lecturer of business communication, has taken more than 300 Kelley School undergraduates and MBA students to Greece as part of immersion courses about the country, its economy and culture. Traditionally, they visit companies, meet with business professionals and do consulting projects for Greek companies.

Last summer, Hellas Journal, a major Greek publication, profiled the Kelley faculty member, reporting that she also is known as “the Greek professor in the U.S. who teaches her students to love our country.” It was hardly a surprise when she and her students were photographed last year by the New York Times while they were participating at an olive oil tasting class at a grocery in Koukaki, a hip Athens neighborhood.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by the Greek government on my decade of efforts to immerse our Kelley students into the Greek culture and history,” Kolovou said. “To understand a different place and the people, you have to work with them, connect with them, listen to their stories and build trust by showing that you have done your homework. This sentiment applies to all of our X272 programs. I am sure we have many other governments who would celebrate the us enhancing our students global mindset of their country cultures. “

If you understand Greek, check out the video below where Kolovou expresses additional feelings in her mother tongue.

FROM Kelley MBA Blog: To the Kelley MBA community


We appreciate your passion and care about the Kelley School. In this moment of focused attention on racial inequality, we have the opportunity as individuals and educators to recommit to make our university, school, programs, and our classrooms fair and just for all. We have a distinctive opportunity to shape curriculum and instruction in support of our ideal goals of democracy, diversity, inclusion, equity, equality, and social justice.

This is an important and pivotal moment. As Dean Kesner noted in a message to the Kelley community, Mr. Floyd’s tragic death has led to an understandable sense of fear, outrage, sadness, and discontent in addition to feelings of powerlessness. It is an all-too-familiar example of the injustices against the Black community in this nation—nicely summarized by the HBS note—and is an injustice that is grossly disproportionate in its impact on this community. It is an injustice so great that we are left wondering if, when, and how we can heal as a country.

Kyle met with the core faculty this morning. He is pleased to share with you that every member of the core has pledged to add cases or assignments where possible that deal with issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. There was also a good discussion of working toward a case that might be used across some or all of the disciplines.

We, along with the administration of the program and school, and the core faculty support the petition you have presented. We are happy to commit to:

  • incorporate multiple cases/assignments in the Core that feature or focus on under-represented minorities and women. This will include required reading of the HBS note, “African American Inequality in the United States.”
  • allocate two days of the Core to lead DEI discussions using qualified external instructors
  • provide annual diversity and inclusion training for Kelley faculty and staff that deals with racism,
  • implicit bias, and racial inequality using qualified and experienced person(s) of color.
In addition, we would like to share the following additional activities that will support diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives at the Kelley School:

  • Professors Kolovou and Cattani are working with current Kelley Consortium students to develop a diversity, equity, and inclusion case specifically for Me, Inc.
  • The MBA Program administration and the Office of the Dean are working with the MBA Consortium leadership and Diversity Champions to explore additional diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives for the Kelley MBA Program.
  • Dean Soni will meet regularly with the MBA Consortium leadership to facilitate these and other initiatives.
  • The Kelley Direct Program will also incorporate cases that feature or focus on underrepresented minorities and women. This will include required reading of the HBS note, “African American Inequality in the United States.”
  • Professor Cattani and Regina Funk, the Kelley Director of Diversity & Inclusion for the Graduate Programs have been working on several diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives for the Kelley MBA Program.

We stand with our racially diverse students and alumni in solidarity and we are deeply committed to working together. All these initiatives will be developed and executed in collaboration with the current MBA Consortium and MBA student leadership. The MBA consortium leadership team has strong ideas and opinions and working with them provides an opportunity for them to assist Kelley while at the same time strengthening their own skills in areas such as leadership, teamwork, creative problem solving, communications, project management, and many other areas. Engaging the current students will ensure that we will create the curricular and co-curricular programming that will be meaningful and relevant for their experiences in the MBA Program. We ask a lot of them and we appreciate that they, in the long tradition of Kelley Consortium students, help make Kelley stronger.

Thank you for your continued engagement in our MBA program and the Kelley School.

Sincerely,

Idie Kesner, Dean, Kelley School of Business

Ash Soni, Executive Associative Dean for Academic Programs, Kelley School of Business

Kyle Cattani, MBA Program Chair, Kelley School of Business

FROM Kelley Connect - Career Services Blog: Handshake is WHERE IT’S AT!
Indiana University is transitioning to the use of Handshake as the University’s primary tool for career management. We at Kelley UCS have been working hard to transition employers and our career coaching team to this new tool. On June 22nd, Handshake will replace Kelley Connect as your primary tool for connecting with employers. Coaching appointments will continue to be scheduled through Kelley Connect until July 1st. After July 1st all coaching appointments will be made through Handshake. If you haven’t already, you will receive an email from Indiana University asking you to activate your account in Handshake. Please open, read, and follow the instructions in the invitation.

Prior to July 1st please do the following:

  • Save any documents you’d like to retain from Kelley Connect (Resumes, Cover letters, transcripts)
  • Consider making a list of your favorite employers if you don’t already have one maintained external to Kelley Connect (for example an excel file, google doc, or other)
Please note, if you have an application in Kelley Connect those applications are still valid. We encourage you to communicate directly with the employer if you have questions. Employers began transitioning to Handshake as of June 1st and have been asked to communicate with students through Handshake after June 22nd.

If you have any questions, our coaches are available. You may schedule appointments through Kelley Connect until July 1st or you may reach us through ucso@indiana.edu.
