FROM Kelley MBA Blog: Kelley School conference goes to Indiana’s “frontlines of treating cancer”
Image

 

INDIANAPOLIS – More than 1.7 million people are diagnosed with cancer and about 610,000 people die from the disease annually, according to the National Cancer Institute. Researchers at Indiana universities and life sciences companies are part of the fight to effectively treat cancer and hopefully find a cure for it in the future.

The Nov. 15 conference, “On the Frontlines of Treating Cancer,” will highlight the latest efforts to fight cancer, the business implications and Indiana’s contribution to and role in the development of treatments such as personalized and precision medicine, genomics, immunotherapy and regenerative medicine.

Representatives from the Indiana University School of Medicine, Purdue University, Eli Lilly, Roche Diagnostics, IU Health and Covance will discuss approaches either under development or already being used. The conference — taking place at Roche Diagnostics Corporate Headquarters at 9115 Hague Road in Indianapolis – is being presented by the Center for the Business of Life Sciences at the IU Kelley School of Business.

In his opening keynote, Phil Low, Presidential Scholar for Drug Discovery and the Ralph C. Corley Distinguished Professor of Chemistry-Biochemistry at Purdue University, will provide a broad view of cancer treatment efforts.

In October 2018, Endocyte Inc., a West Lafayette biotech startup built around Low’s research was purchased for $2.1 billion by pharmaceutical company Novartis AG. Key to the purchase was an experimental therapy aimed at treating advanced prostate cancer.

Two panel discussions will focus on current innovations in oncology treatment and strategies as well as those under development.

The registration fee for the conference, which will run from 9 a.m. to 3:15 p.m., is $175 and includes lunch. Students at accredited Indiana institutions of higher education may qualify for a discounted rate. Registration and additional information are available on the conference webpage or by contacting Kelli Conder at the Kelley School at 812-856-0915 or kconder@indiana.edu.

Future events in the 2019-20 Indiana Life Sciences Collaboration Conference Series are “Capital Makes the (Life Sciences) World Go ‘Round” on Feb. 11, 2020 at One America Tower in Indianapolis and “Medicare for All and The Alternatives” on May 1 at Cook Medical headquarters in Bloomington. People may register for all three events for $450, for a savings of $75.

Dean’s response to an important faculty issue  [#permalink]

FROM Kelley MBA Blog: Dean’s response to an important faculty issue
To the students, faculty, and staff of the Kelley School,

As many of you may be aware Professor Eric Rasmusen, a member of the Kelley School faculty, tweeted a link and quoted from an article entitled, “Are Women Destroying Academia?  Probably,” written by Lance Welton. This article suggests women academics and most women students are harmful to the academy.  Unfortunately, the views espoused in this article and endorsed by this professor on the matter of gender diversity reflect similar views expressed in his private Twitter account. Moreover, he holds similarly reprehensible views regarding other areas of diversity.  The professor demonstrates a lack of tolerance and respect for women as well as for racial diversity and diversity in sexual orientation.  The leadership of the Kelley School stands united in condemning the bias and disrespect displayed by this professor; we find his sexist, racist, and homophobic views abhorrent.

The Kelley School believes strongly in the importance and value of diversity and inclusion. There are hundreds of research articles clearly stating the value of diversity for all learning environments including higher education.   Both for this reason and because valuing and fostering diversity is the right thing to do, our School has worked to create a welcoming environment for all professors and staff to pursue our teaching, research, and service missions in an open, receptive, and respectful environment.  Similarly, we have worked diligently to create an open, respectful, and inclusive environment in which our students learn. Naturally, it is hurtful when we see views expressed that are the antithesis of this.  As a female academic, dean of the school, and a Kelley alumnus who cares deeply about our School, I find the remarks and the beliefs presented in the papers cited and tweets by this professor reprehensible.

While many have called for the professor’s dismissal, there are legal reasons why the University cannot dismiss him over his postings.  Like all of us, Professor Rasmusen has First Amendment rights.  While his stated opinions are at odds with our individual values and beliefs and those of our institution, we cannot prohibit his freedom of expression in his private social media accounts.  This does not mean that we are powerless to take actions that prevent bias against students, other faculty members, or staff.  Indiana University and the Kelley School are committed to our ethical responsibility to provide a workplace free from discrimination and harassment. In addition, we must ensure a non-threatening, fair learning environment. Therefore, we will take all necessary steps to ensure that students will not be harmed by the biases that could underlie the judgment of this professor. This includes allowing students who are enrolled in his courses to substitute other courses or transfer to other sections taught by different professors.  We will also implement other procedural mechanisms to ensure the biases expressed do not impact the professor’s grading or how he conducts his classroom sessions.  And, we will conduct a thorough review of the courses taught by this professor for the influence of bias.

I ask that you not judge our School by a single faculty member.  For 100 years, we have been a learning environment that cares deeply about our research, teaching and service missions. For 100 years, we have been a learning environment that cares deeply about our students, faculty, staff, and alumni.  And, we are a learning environment that will strive every day to be more inclusive and supportive of diversity than the day before.

Each of us brings a valuable aspect of diversity that gives our institution strength.  I hope we can remember this even when we are challenged by others whose minds are closed to this viewpoint.

Idie Kesner

Kelley professor to advise the International Financial Reporting Stand  [#permalink]

FROM Kelley MBA Blog: Kelley professor to advise the International Financial Reporting Standards Foundation
Image
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Leslie Hodder, a professor of accounting at the Indiana University Kelley School of Business, has been appointed by International Financial Reporting Standards Foundation to its advisory board.

The IFRS Foundation is responsible for the oversight and governance of the International Accounting Standards Board. The council advises IFRS Foundation trustees and the IASB on strategic and technical matters. It includes representatives from more than 40 groups worldwide that are affected by and interested in financial reporting.

It helps set standards for analysts, auditors, investors, preparers, professional accounting bodies, regulators and standard-setters. Her three-year appointment takes effect on Jan. 1.

“This council is a group of highly regarded international practitioners, scholars, analysts, standard setters, regulators,” said Jim M. Wahlen, professor and chair of accounting and the James R. Hodge Chair of Excellence at Kelley. “Our department has long been known for research contributions and support for the standard setting process and the standard setting boards. That support will continue to grow, with Professor Hodder’s appointment.”

Others being appointed included representatives of the European Central Bank, Bayer, the International Actuarial Association, S&P Global Ratings and the International Association of Insurance Supervisors.

Hodder, pictured left and who also holds the title of Conrad Prebys Professor, joined the Kelley faculty in 2003 after teaching at Stanford University. She has taught at every degree level at the Kelley School of Business, including in its acclaimed 3/2 Graduate Accounting Program, MBA and Ph.D. programs. She received tenure in 2008.

Her expertise includes risk management and disclosure, measurement issues in accounting, options and other financial instruments and financial institutions.

Hodder said she looks forward to playing a role in setting further standards for the international accounting profession, helping it to be responsive to future challenges and needs.

“The growth of economies around the world relies on the free flow of capital and transactions. As these transactions are increasingly high-frequency and complex, high quality accounting standards are required to bring transparency, accountability and efficiency to our product and capital markets,” she said. “I am honored to be part of the standard-setting process and view it as a culmination of a lifetime of preparation and dedication to the field of accounting that began when I used to wait after school for my father in the office of his local CPA practice.”

She also appreciates how this experience may shape what she teaches in the classroom and in her professional interactions with faculty colleagues.

“The Kelley School’s global business focus, beginning with the Global Foundations Core is premised on the truth that economies can neither survive or thrive in isolation. This experience will help me to share with students a successful model for global cooperation and governance, as well as illustrate tangible economic benefits that arise from such cooperation,” Hodder said.

“Standards are the outgrowth of cultural and legal systems that differ widely around the world, and there is no single right answer to the questions posed by regulation,” she added. “For this reason, standard-setting requires listening as much as talking, and I think this insight can provide useful modeling for students honing their own leadership skills at the Kelley School of Business.”

2019 Fry Scholars Program attracts top achieving students from across   [#permalink]

FROM Kelley MBA Blog: 2019 Fry Scholars Program attracts top achieving students from across the country to Kelley’s Undergraduate Program
Image

 

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business acclaimed undergraduate program continues to attract many of the top students from around the country, including the 30 freshmen who were selected this fall as William R. Fry Scholars.

Entering freshmen who applied to IU and were directly admitted to the Kelley School were eligible. Preference is given to students who are traditionally underrepresented in the field of business.

Students receive funding toward standard tuition and fees. They also receive support in the form of an advisor and a Kelley student mentor during their time at IU. They also have the option of residing in the Kelley Living Learning Center, a residential program that focuses on personal, academic and professional development. Each program has its unique events.

The Fry Scholars program is made possible through a$15 million gift in 2008 from the late William R. Fry, a Kelley alumnus. The gift and resulting program are helping the Kelley School pursue a major initiative toward more inclusiveness and increased enrollment of underrepresented minorities.

When making the gift, Fry said that he especially liked the impact that his Kelley School gift would have on young minds.

This year’s Fry Scholars, their high schools and their hometowns are:

  • Tyler Abella, Belen Jesuit Preparatory School, Miami, Fla.

FROM Kelley MBA Blog: Straight No Chaser harmonizes with Kelley Direct students to create new specialty vodka
Image

 

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – When a capella group Straight No Chaser comes back to Indiana University for a concert December 13, members also are returning to where the idea for their new venture, a branded vodka, was developed as part of an academic project at IU’s Kelley School of Business.

Students in the school’s No. 1 ranked Kelley Direct online MBA program developed the beverage concept in July during Kelley Connect Week, an in-residence experience that includes a live-case project. Students were asked to help the vocal group identify new sources of revenue and the winning team sold judges and the group on an idea of creating a Straight No Chaser vodka.

The renowned Straight No Chaser is partnering with Brown County-based Hard Truth Distilling Co. to market the beverage as part of its national “The Open Bar Tour” through April. Hard Truth Straight No Chaser Vodka will be featured at many concert venues, where people may purchase a specialty cocktail featuring the vodka. It is available for purchase at all Big Woods Restaurant locations around Indiana, as well as select liquor and grocery stores.

The initiative to produce the vodka was introduced — virtually to nearly every detail including the concept and producer used — by the winning Kelley Direct team.

Image
“Our whole team was very surprised that Straight No Chaser didn’t just pursue our idea, but that they picked it in the first place,” admitted Vincent Holloway of Bloomington, Indiana, one of five students on the winning team. “It’s been humbling for our team to not just win the case competition, but to see Straight No Chaser take the idea and make it a reality in under six months.”

“It is certainly a moment of pride, but more importantly a great validation that we truly understood our client and were able to offer a solution for one of the challenges they presented,” added student Anthony Arbucias, from Pewaukee, Wisconsin.

Other Kelley Direct students on the winning team were Wyatt Craig of Stamford, Conn., Michael Hale of Ottawa, Canada, Dan Jamieson of Washington, D.C. and Ben Steffes of St. Louis.

While content for the Kelley Direct degree program is delivered online, students regularly interact with faculty, including when they come to the Bloomington campus for Kelley Connect Weeks during their first and second years. The live case competition is a key feature of the week’s agenda. Previous clients have included the and Youth Employment Services in South Africa.

Regan Stevenson, assistant professor of management and entrepreneurship, said sometimes it’s difficult to determine which case solutions will resonate with clients.

“When the team first presented the vodka concept internally, it wasn’t initially well received,” said Stevenson. “But as they began to test and validate the concept locally — talking to consumers, store managers and distillers as part of their primary market research — it became obvious that the vodka concept had high market demand, was technically feasible and was a highly scalable way to generate passive income for SNC.

“And, of course, it was entirely on brand for a band called ‘Straight No Chaser,’” he added.

Image

 

Straight No Chaser (pictured above) was founded as a student group at IU in 1996 and has since released seven albums and four EPs internationally. Six of the nine original members continue to perform with the group.

“Straight No Chaser’s roots are firmly planted in Indiana University. Participating in the Kelley School of Business’ case study was our way of giving back,” said David Roberts, a member and the group’s business manager. “We never dreamed that the students would have such great, tangible and actionable recommendations.”

Will Geoghegan, clinical assistant professor of management and entrepreneurship, wasn’t all that surprised that his students’ idea has gone from concept to market.

“The ideas that the Kelley Direct students develop all have scope to succeed and we deliberately source clients that have real, strategic problems and want to implement the suggestions,” Geoghegan said. “In this case, the members of Straight No Chaser were hoping to explore avenues of growth beyond touring and were fully onboard in the process of implementing the best ideas.

“We have been involved in a number of live cases that have followed through on several recommendations,” he added. “We just talked to the client before Straight No Chaser last week about how they were still looking over the recommendations and had an acquisition bid for $20 million come about directly as a result of a Kelley Connect Week recommendation.”

But the professors acknowledge the uniqueness aspect of this latest success. They set out to create as much value as possible for both the students and clients.

“The winning team gets the ultimate validation of their work by seeing their recommendations actually come to fruition,” said Timothy Baldwin, the Randall L. Tobias Chair in Leadership and chairperson and professor of management and entrepreneurship. “The Kelley Direct development and judging process proves to be on-target because it was that process that equipped the team to make such an actionable strategy and surface as the champion.”

“It’s all the more special that I can drink some of the fruits of their endeavors,” Geoghegan added.

FROM Kelley MBA Blog: New webinar provides healthful information for parents of Kelley students, along with other resources
Image

 

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – As the semester winds down, students at the Indiana University and the Kelley School of Business face final exams and most return home for the holidays. It also renews a period of adjustment for parents, who are still getting used to being empty nesters. How can they continue to be supportive of their loved ones, while encouraging them to be more independent?

To help, Kelley’s Undergraduate Program has produced a hour-long webinar for parents, “Helping Your Student Achieve Balance and Independence.” It is part of the school’s broader ongoing, collective efforts to help parents contribute to the success of their sons and daughters, who are transitioning into adulthood and professional life.

Kelly Higgins, MSW, LCSW and MBA and assistant director of student experience, who works with undergraduate students on issues involving mental health and wellness, presents information in the webinar. She also responds to common questions with the help of Kelley senior Brian Mitcham.

Prior to coming to Kelley in August, Higgins directed adult and family services at Centerstone of Indiana, which provides counseling and mental health care in communities across the state.

“What do we mean when we talk about mental wellness and balance here at Kelley? … It’s a state of thriving in various areas of your life – in your relationships, at work and play – and that’s really despite ups and downs,” Higgins said in her introductory remarks.

“It’s really about having self-acceptance and sort of that sense of yourself, understanding what your character strengths are and really having an accurate perception of reality, which is something that can be really difficult for anyone, but is especially difficult for students because they’re still trying to find their place in the world and finding what the realistic expectations are for them as adults,” she said.

The webinar offers practical guidance and highlights many Kelley School’s initiatives, activities and resources, including Kelley Balance Week scheduled each semester right before finals week. This week, students have been encouraged to gather at coffee breaks and yoga and meditation sessions. On Tuesday and Wednesday, service dogs in training are available to provide a “calming presence,” and a “balanced” breakfast will be served on Thursday.

Another useful resource for parents of Kelley undergraduate students is the Kelley Family Leadership Council. The organization consists of dedicated parent volunteers who engage fellow parents and families in activities enriching their children’s undergraduate experience. It is directed by Sara Herold, associate director of development and parent engagement, who is a proud mother to a Kelley graduate and another IU grad.

While the webinar was developed for parents of Kelley students, the school hopes that mothers and fathers of any college student will find it beneficial. “We are really proud of it and are excited to get it seen as widely as possible,” said Josh Perry, chair of the Kelley undergraduate program.

FROM Kelley MBA Blog: Kelley alumni named to Forbes’ ’30 Under 30′
Image

 

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Two alumni of the Indiana University Kelley School of Business – Martin Aguinis and Rooshy Roy — have been named to Forbes’ prestigious “30 Under 30” lists.

The Forbes 30 Under 30 lists highlight 600 rising stars in 20 industries, who were chosen from more than 15,000 nominees in the United States and Canada. Past recipients have included Spotify’s Daniel Ek, Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai and cosmetics entrepreneur Emily Weiss.

Aguinis, (pictured above) who graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in marketing in 2017, leads global marketing for Flutter, Google’s open-source mobile-app development framework. Clients include Alibaba, eBay, Groupon, BMW and Capital One.

He launched #MyFlutterStory, a campaign promoting the diversity of the framework’s users, as well as Flutter Create to encourage the global community to create apps and spotlight them.

In October, Aguinis was recognized by the Product Marketing Alliance with its global Rising Star award. Before Flutter, Martin founded his own companies and also worked in the YouTube team on virtual reality. While at IU, he developed a ride-sharing app for fellow students. He was recognized in the marketing and advertising category.

Roy, (pictured below) who graduated with a Bachelor of Science in finance in 2011, founded and CEO of cosmetics company Aavrani. A first-generation Indian American, her company’s products are rooted in ancient beauty rituals. She was recognized in the retail and e-commerce category.

Aavrani also gives back through its support of young women’s education in India and its partnership with the  Shanti Bhavan School. This program empowers children from impoverished backgrounds via educational intervention, offering individual attention to every aspect of a child’s upbringing — from emotional development to physical fitness to cognitive growth.

Before starting Aavrani in June 2018 with Nina Davuluri, the first Indian-American woman to be named Miss America, Roy was in investment banking and private equity on Wall Street at Sandler O’Neill + Partners, Goldman Sachs and Warburg Pincus. In addition to her Kelley degree, she has an MBA from Wharton.

New ‘Star Wars’ movie awakens marketing memories for IU Kelley School   [#permalink]

FROM Kelley MBA Blog: New ‘Star Wars’ movie awakens marketing memories for IU Kelley School faculty member
Image

 

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — When the ninth Star Wars movie and final installment of the “Skywalker saga” opens in the theaters Dec. 19, it also will bring back memories for Paul Palmer Jr. II, an Indiana University Kelley School of Business professor who helped develop iconic toys tied to the film series.

Palmer, a senior lecturer of marketing who began teaching at Kelley in 2010 and self-professed Star Wars enthusiast, for four years was a senior brand manager for Hasbro Inc.’s product line for episodes I and II of the classic science fiction franchise.

After earning an MBA in 1996 from the Kelley School, Palmer went to work for consumer products giant Procter & Gamble as a brand manager, but two years later, the “big kid at heart” left for Hasbro Inc.

“It was crazy,” Palmer said. “We had an opportunity to be a part of the rebirth, for the next chapter in truly an evergreen saga that resonated with fans and moviegoers across a broad spectrum around the world. It was exciting that I could be part of something that I was passionate about 20 years earlier.”

As a 10-year-old growing up on the west side of Indianapolis in 1977, Palmer used to evade theater ushers so he could stay for multiple screenings of “Star Wars. Like so many people, he would go back to see the movie anytime someone would take him. In that era before VCRs and streaming media, he estimated seeing “Episode IV” at least 30 times in the first month.

At Hasbro, Palmer initially worked on several special feature girls’ items — “anything that poops, pees and eats food” — including the McDonald’s Happy Meal Doll. He also worked on dolls and action figures for the movie “Titanic,” the Spice Girls, My Little Pony and Pokémon.

In spring 1999, a few weeks before “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace” opened, Palmer was invited to join the team working on the franchise’s toys. He worked with “Star Wars” products until he left to explore other opportunities in another Hasbro division in 2003.

Palmer led the marketing and product plans while managing key licensor relationships with Lucasfilm, Walt Disney and Cartoon Network. As such, he had early access to storylines and initial film footage of “Star Wars: Attack of the Clones,” to help decide what characters and items would be among the toys for young fans, those young at heart and collectors.

While working on products for “Episode II,” Palmer met with members of creator George Lucas’ team, particularly Howard Roffman, head of licensing for all Lucasfilm properties. Members of the team were on the set during filming to “make sure that we get good ideas from the movie that would turn into toys.”

Image

 

His team created more than 60 action figures (including the Boba Fett action figure above, signed by actor Jeremy Bullock), lightsabers and vehicles. But its biggest success was an interactive toy version of the R2-D2 droid, which was named toy of the year in 2002.

“We looked at doing a C-3PO, but because of the way he’s physically structured and because of the gait by which a droid would have to walk, it was going to be difficult to execute that toy in the manner he needed to be,” Palmer said. “The technology didn’t exist and would be too costly, so we went with the R2-D2.”

They worked with a design team in England to develop the technology to bring the 18-inch R2-D2 replica to life.

In 2002, he returned to his hometown to participate in Celebration II, an official “Star Wars” convention at the Indiana Convention Center. There, he was joined by actors Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew (better known as Chewbacca); Anthony Daniels (who was behind the mask of C-3PO); and Bullock, who played Boba Fett in “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi.”

In 2010, he returned to the Kelley School as a faculty member and has served as a mentor for students in the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management (Today, he advises members of the IU football team).

In his marketing classes, Palmer doesn’t dwell much on his experience with “Star Wars,” but some of the products he worked at Hasbro are on display near the entrance to the Kelley Marketing Department.

Among the lessons Palmer shares is an appreciation that “Star Wars” is one of the few franchises that resonates today as much as it did 42 years ago. But today it has two kinds of fans – those who consider themselves passionately attached to the original saga originated by creator George Lucas and newer ones who wants some “cool, fun, fresh sci-fi content.”

“The message to a traditionalist is this is the end of a saga that you’ve known and loved your entire life,” he said. “That’s going to resonate with you and I and they can sell merchandise that’s commemorative merchandise.

“However, with someone like my son, even though he knows my link to it, he wants to see a movie that shows possibilities that he couldn’t even envision before. He doesn’t care as much about the nostalgia and making sure that the story arch is complete. He cares about being entertained for two hours and twenty-two minutes.”

While toy merchandising remains an important part of the equation, Palmer thinks there are many other platforms for fans to engage with the Star Wars brand. They include video games and all the content and amenities players can buy within the games to enhance their experience. Other examples include the new “Star Wars” attractions at Disney theme parks.

Palmer looks forward to taking his wife and two children to see “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” on opening night. In fact, he’ll probably see the movie twice – the first time to take in its wonder and then in order to absorb the details.

IU Kelley School of Business announces its inaugural class of Conrad P  [#permalink]

FROM Kelley MBA Blog: IU Kelley School of Business announces its inaugural class of Conrad Prebys Scholars
Image

 

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – When the late Conrad T. Prebys committed $20 million to Indiana University and its Kelley School of Business in October 2015, the real estate developer and philanthropist was profuse in his admiration for his alma mater.

“I love Indiana University, the beautiful Bloomington campus, and it’s exciting to be able to make this gift to the university,” Prebys famously said. “I am very proud to help the Kelley School build on its strong foundation and further its profound promise to students and their futures.”

Sadly, Prebys (pictured below), who was president of San Diego-based Progress Construction and Management, passed in July 2016, before seeing the fruition of his generosity.

Raised in a working-class area of South Bend, he was the first of his five brothers to attend college and participated in the ROTC Program at IU. After graduating in 1955, he returned to his hometown, where was a manager at a steel company and operated a pizzeria. A decade later, he moved to San Diego and became a successful developer of affordable, middle-class residences.

The $14 million Conrad Prebys Career Services Center was built and dedicated in March 2018, and addressed important career development and placement needs for an increasing number of students at the Kelley School of Business and IU.

The summer before, IU President Michael McRobbie also presided over the inauguration of a new outdoor amphitheater for musical and theatrical productions named for Prebys, located next to Bryan House.

These facilities were vitally needed, but this fall Prebys’ gift is contributing to another building project – in the form of the next generation of future successful Kelley alumni, through a new student scholarship program.

The Kelley School selected its first group of 13 Prebys Scholars, who began their studies this fall.

Entering freshmen who applied to IU and were directly admitted to the Kelley School were eligible. Preference was given to students who are traditionally underrepresented in the field of business. Students receive partial funding toward standard tuition and fees and other support in the form of an advisor and a Kelley student mentor.

This year’s Prebys Scholars, their high schools and their hometowns are:

  • Eddie Bolivar, Oak Park & River Forest High School, Oak Park, Illinois
  • Janyssa Chavez, Pike High School, Indianapolis
  • Nathan Gonzalez, Wellington High School, Wellington, Florida
  • Zachary Harper, Detroit Country Day School, Detroit
  • Nicholas Lugo, Marlboro High School, Manalapan, N.J.
  • Jack Luzzo, Marist High School, Orland Park, Illinois
  • Mercedes Maldonado, Munster High School, Hammond, Indiana
  • Devin Pope, Merrillville High School, Crown Point, Indiana
  • Ashanti Price, Merrillville High School, Merrillville, Indiana
  • Stefano de la Riva Aguero, Western High School, Davie, Florida
  • Ashley Robinson, Lake Central High School, Schererville, Indiana
  • Donovan Snulligan, Lawrence North High School, Indianapolis
  • Jacob Vrankin, Naperville North High School, Naperville, Illinois
The scholarships are renewable as long as recipients meet the expectations of their scholarship program. More information about the Prebys Scholars program is available from the Kelley Office of Diversity Initiatives at 812-855-4474 or kodi@indiana.edu.

In addition to the student scholarships, Prebys provided funding for attracting and retaining accomplished faculty members. There are three Conrad Prebys Professors at Kelley: Rebecca J. Slotegraaf, also a professor of marketing and chair of the school’s doctoral programs; and Leslie Hodder and Terri Lombardi Yohn, both professors of accounting. They will soon be joined by a fourth professor.

Prebys’ gift was made as part of IU’s university-wide philanthropic campaign, For All: The Indiana University Bicentennial Campaign, which concludes on June 30, 2020. Opportunities to follow in Prebys’ footsteps and support the future of business education and future generations remain.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – In November, faculty at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business toured the state, sharing its annual economic forecast for the coming year.

While the presentations are valuable and attract news coverage, a yearly special issue of the Indiana Business Review, published by the Indiana Business Research Center, provides an opportunity for much deeper dive into the forecast and how local communities may be affected.

The special issue includes nearly 20 articles, including those about the state housing picture and financial markets, as well as economic forecasts for 2020 for the nation, state and 14 cities and metropolitan statistical areas. They include forecasts for Indianapolis, Louisville and cities where the Business Outlook Panel didn’t travel to, including Fort Wayne and Muncie.

Articles are prepared by Kelley professors and economists, as well as contributors from Ball State University, Purdue University and Purdue University Fort Wayne, the University of Southern Indiana, IU East, IU Northwest, IU Kokomo, IU South Bend, IU Southeast, Indiana State University and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.

In its overall forecast, the Kelley School panel indicated that the U.S. economy will continue to expand for a 12th consecutive year in 2020, but by only about 2 percent and struggling to remain at that level by year’s end. Indiana’s economic output will be more anemic, growing at a rate of about 1.25 percent.

Here are highlights from the special issue of Indiana Business Review (click on the links to full articles):

  • The Indiana housing market remains locked in a standoff between strong buyer demand and scant supply. With the inventory of homes on the market likely to remain exceptionally low in 2020, total housing starts should continue to increase. However, the strong house price gains threaten to put homeownership out of reach for more Hoosiers.
  • No room for mistakes in international markets. The anticipated recovery of economic activity in the emerging markets will drive the 2020 global growth estimate of 3.4 percent. But much uncertainty remains, driven by continued Brexit concerns and several ongoing trade disputes.
  • Indiana is expected to experience slower job growth and gross output due to a tight labor market. With fewer and fewer people available to hire, the tightness of the Indiana labor markets will serve as a drag on output and employment growth.
For the Kelley School, this holiday season is particularly meaningful. This year marks Kelley’s Centennial, and everyone is proud to celebrate the school’s 100-year history at the same time IU celebrates its Bicentennial. In this video, Kelley students, faculty and staff in Bloomington and Indianapolis share what makes Kelley special and what they hope Kelley’s next century will bring.

FROM Kelley MBA Blog: Kelley’s Indiana Business Research Center supports U.S. Opportunity Zones initiative
Image

 

WASHINGTON – A new online tool developed at the Indiana University Kelley School of Business to help economic and community developers in areas identified as Opportunity Zones is being praised by a top official at the U.S. Department of Commerce.

The USA Opportunity Zones tool was created by the Indiana Business Research Center at Kelley for the Commerce Department’s Economic Development Administration, which announced the tool’s launch on Jan. 14.

“This new web-based mapping tool will help investors and economic developers target investment toward Opportunity Zones to effect positive, socially-conscious change in these communities,” said U.S. Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Economic Development Dr. John Fleming.

It is designed to provide support to the more than 390 EDA-designated Economic Development Districts across the country, as well as those fostering long-term private sector investments in low-income communities in more than 8,700 opportunity zones nationwide. These include 156 Opportunity Zones in Indiana.

The bi-partisan supported Opportunity Zone program was added to the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed by Congress and signed by President Donald Trump. It allows states to designate areas with higher-than-average poverty rates or lower-than-average incomes as Opportunity Zones. Investors are permitted reduce their tax liability by putting capital gains into projects in these areas.

Since January 2018, the EDA has invested nearly $347 million in 239 projects in or near Opportunity Zones across the United States.

The map-based tool project is among a vast suite of resources available through the Indiana Business Research Center and its StatsAmerica site, which received support from the Economic Development Administration.

“Like other StatsAmerica tools, the U.S. Opportunity Zones tool is easy to use, with multiple reports from the perspective of the zone itself, the congressional district and the economic development district and state in which it resides,” said Timothy Slaper, co-director of the IBRC. “This will provide unique context to users.”

“With this new tool, we can show the intersection of EDA’s public investments and activities near or within these zones,” said Carol O. Rogers, also a co-director of the IBRC. “As Economic Development Districts develop their new five-year comprehensive economic development strategies them, the integration of opportunity zones as a new investment opportunity will be important.”

For 100 years, the Kelley School of Business has prepared graduates to lead organizations and start companies and shaped business knowledge and policy.

FROM Kelley Connect - Career Services Blog: Prepping Your Resume: A Few Tips To Boost Your Interview Chances
From [url=https://www.tlnt.com/why-you-cant-get-an-interview-explained-using-job-search-science-data/]Dr. John Sullivan and job search science research by TalentWorks[/url]
[b]Modifying the content of your resume will dramatically boost your interview chances![/b]
TalentWorks’ research quantifies just how much the following resume content actions will boost your chances of getting an interview. The highest impact of resume/application actions is listed first.

[b]The highest impact of resume/application actions is listed first.[/b]

[list]
[*]   [b]Start your sentences with action verbs – a 140% boost — [/b]Distinct action words really make a difference including created, developed, acted, discovered, took charge, analyzed, etc. [/*]
[*]   [b]Include key skills – a 59% boost[/b] — Most people should add 15-20 skills to their resume. These skills might include technical skills like coding and sales as well as soft skills like communications, collaboration, teamwork and being self-motivated. [/*]
[*]    [b]Include leadership words – a 51% boost[/b] — Adding strong, active, leadership-oriented words will also help you. They recommend adding strong, active words like led, leadership, managed, organized, directed, oversaw, etc. [/*]
[*]    [b]Demonstrate results with numbers – a 40% boost — [/b]Using concrete numbers increases your hireability results. I would also add the importance of quantifying your accomplishments in dollars. [/*]
[*]    [b]Add industry buzzwords – a 29% boost — [/b]Keywords are critical for human, LinkedIn and ATS searches. So be sure you include all of the important functional, corporate values and industry words and phrases found in the relevant job description.[/*]
[/list]
[b]These resume mistakes may actually hurt you![/b]

Research by TalentWorks shows that there are certain actions that can actually diminish your chances of getting an interview. Those mistakes include:

[list]
[*]  [b]Don’t use personal pronouns – a 55% negative hit — [/b]People who used even one personal pronoun in their employment section had a significantly lower chance of getting an interview callback (it is OK to use them in the objective or professional summary section). Some examples of the pronouns to avoid are: I, me, mine, myself, we, us and ours. [/*]
[*]   [b]Don’t (only) be a “Team Player” – a 51% negative hit — [/b]This advice is a little counter-intuitive. Yes, it’s good to say that you are a team player, but it’s also important to reveal that you have also owned, managed or directed. Be aware that many collaborative words also have passive, subordinate, weasel-word undertones, which could imply you passively follow the team too often. [/*]
[*][b]Don’t include a career objective – a 29.6% negative hit[/b] [b]—[/b] Job applicants whose resume contained an objective were less hireable than those who didn’t specify an explicit objective. Providing a career objective may inadvertently reveal that you’re only starting your career and that you are not very experienced. Providing a professional summary is a superior approach.[/*]
