Bangkok Business Challenge and Asia Venture Challenge 2015  [#permalink]

FROM Nanyang Admissions Blog: Bangkok Business Challenge and Asia Venture Challenge 2015
A team from the Nanyang Business School comprising of Jeffery Zou, Stephanie Zhao, Sona Sethi, and Dr. I Putu Mahendra Wijaya participated in the Bangkok Business Challenge and Asia Venture Challenge in February and March 2015 respectively, both held at Bangkok. The team was guided by NBS’s Prof Vijay Sethi.

 

Bangkok Business Challenge

The MAI Bangkok Business Challenge (BBC) was organized by the Sasin Graduate Institute of Business Administration of Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok from February 11-14, 2015. BBC was a multi-stage business plan competition that started with 64 teams from business schools around the world, who were required to submit a 20-page business plan summary. Out of those, 16 teams were selected for the semi-final round, which was held in Bangkok.

Before arriving in Bangkok, Sasin paired each team with a “buddy” who would help with competition logistics and any general questions about Bangkok. On the first day of the competition, Sona represented the NBS in the 99-second elevator pitch. There was a non-competitive feedback round on the first day, where the teams had the opportunity to present their business plans and receive feedback from industry experts, thus greatly helping them prepare for the next day’s challenge.

On the next day, the team competed in one of the 4 divisional rounds, the winners of which were to compete in the finals. NBS then proceeded to compete in the Play-Off Round the next day against other teams from the divisional rounds, with a total of 12 teams vying for the remaining two places in the finals. There was also a booth display where the team presented its business idea in an audio – visual format. Teams were provided basic stationary/crafts materials and could also use local printing facilities to print additional materials on their own expense.

As NBS presented first in each round, the team took advantage of the option to watch the presentation and Q&A portions of the teams that followed. The award ceremony was a formal, royal affair where the prizes were given out by the HRH the Privy Councillor of Thailand. The BBC staff informed all the guests about proper etiquette during the formal presentation in the afternoon dress rehearsal.

The competition ended with an evening cruise dinner over the Chao Phraya River. The organizers had also arranged a Bangkok sight-seeing tour for all the participants on the next day for those who could stay. The NBS team was awarded USD 500 for competing as semi-finalists.

Asia Venture Challenge

The Asia Venture Challenge (AVC) is the Asia regional qualifying round of the global Venture Labs Investment Competition (VLIC) and was organized by the Thammasat Business School, Thammasat University, Bangkok from March 10-12, 2015. The competition was attended by 12 Asian business schools, divided into three groups.

The event started with a booth display and reception where the team presented its business idea to the public, competition judges (real VCs, investors, lawyers and other professionals), “secret” Grant Thornton judges of the Grant Thornton New Venture Showcase award, and the local news media.

The reception also had a 60-second elevator pitch competition with a cash prize of USD 500. Though Sasin ultimately won this award, several judges and competing teams approached Sona throughout the competition, praising her for her wonderful presentation.

 

The next day the team competed in the divisional rounds in the first half and was chosen as the runners-up in the division. This allowed the team to compete in a play-off between the runners-up of all three divisions who fought for one place in the finals. NBS performed admirably but did not advance to final rounds, leaving with a cash prize of USD 500 for competing in the Play-offs.

Good luck with your ventures!

FROM Nanyang Admissions Blog: Chinese New Year Celebration
Submitted by Stephanie Zhao, Co-Chair of the Wine, Beer & Liqueur Appreciation Club

 

Chinese New Year is upon us!

 

For this festive occasion, our Chinese classmates have organized an afternoon of immersion in Chinese culture on 19 February. And there is nothing better than small games:

 

– Chopsticks skills test, or how to train your dexterity and your patience

– How to write your name in Chinese and using calligraphy: yes, the Chinese brush is hard to master

Image

– Paint something with the Chinese brush: maybe a design class should have been mandatory

Image

– Ancient Chinese costumes photo booth: despite their dislike for the costumes, the guys gathered their courage to put them on

Image

 

The afternoon was filled with laughter. A good beginning for the year of the goat!

Wine Appreciation Week  [#permalink]

FROM Nanyang Admissions Blog: Wine Appreciation Week
Submitted by Stephanie Zhao, Co-Chair of the Wine, Beer & Liqueur Appreciation Club

 

The Wine, Beer & Liqueur Appreciation Club organized a series of wine tastings at the end of Trimester 2 for the class.

 

Second trimester wine tasting crash course Day 1: Rosé Night

18 Feb 2015, MBA Lounge

 

The second trimester wine tasting crash courses have started again!

On the menu this time: Rosé tasting.

What is Rosé? No, it’s not a mix of red wines and white wines. A lesson was needed there, clearly. Some of us hadn’t even heard of this type of wine, so that is why the Wine Club presented two different French rosés, the best refreshing wines for a hot summer day.

A Cabernet d’Anjou from Val de Loire, and a Côtes de Provence from Provence.

The Cabernet d’Anjou is an easy wine to drink: it is slightly sweet with acidity to keep it refreshing.

The Côtes de Provence was a more floral and mineral wine, but equally good to quench thirst.

Image

Rosé got the approval of all, at the end of this hot summer night.

Second trimester wine tasting crash course Day 2: White and red wines tasting

19 Feb 2015, ACI Building

 

White or red? Why not both?

On this festive day, the Wine Club presented:

  • Sweet white wine from Alsace
  • Malbec wines
  • Spanish red wine
Image

To cope with the strong taste of red berries laced with cigar from Malbec and the Vaza Reserva,  we also prepared Muscat wine for the sweet tooth.

After the first trimester’s red wines introduction class, everyone was able to come up with some adjectives to describe the red wines, which made the club co-chairs very proud.

As for the white Muscat, the success was so great that everyone asked for more.

Second trimester wine tasting crash course Day 3: White and red wines tasting

20 Feb 2015, Graduate Hall 2

This is the third day of tasting, and the MBA class is getting better and better at it! We have tasted wines from Italy, France, Spain, but there is still a lot to taste. On the menu today:

  • A fizzy sweet red wine from Spain
  • A more powerful and yet fruity Grenache wine from South East of France
  • A delicate dry white Pinot Grigio from Italy
The uncommon fizzy sweet wine was surprisingly everyone’s favourite for that day. To get a bubbly red wine was quite refreshing and it stirred curiosity. The co-chairs had a difficult time answering all these technical questions…

The Grenache was well appreciated by those who had a liking for strong tastes. And the Pinot Grigio was perfect for the white wines lovers.

Second trimester wine tasting crash course Day 4: Champagne tasting

21 Feb 2015, ADM

 

To close the tastings of this trimester in a grandiose way, the club has prepared the most famous sparkling wine: Champagne.

Image

A semi-dry Champagne was chosen so that the sweetness is well balanced with the acidity. Sparkling wine production process differs a lot from the other types of wines. After a very thorough explanation of the grapes, the production, the etiquettes and tasting methods, the wine club finally popped the Champagne.

During the previous sessions, some had strong preference for white or red or rosé. But for the Champagne, it was unanimous: everyone loves champagne!

An Evening of Cricket  [#permalink]

FROM Nanyang Admissions Blog: An Evening of Cricket
Submitted by Dilina Fernando

 

On the evening of 17th May 2015, we headed out to the SRC to learn and play a game of cricket. There were 18 people on the ground, yet only four of us had played cricket before.

 

The session was started by Aditya, Vivek and Dilina who gave a background on how the game is played. Thereafter, they demonstrated by playing a few practice overs. Being MBA students, the others were quick to learn the game and alluded the game’s similarity to baseball. An outsider probably would have found it difficult to figure out which game we were playing!

 

After the initial introduction, the players were divided into two teams. The team led by Aditya batted first, scoring 49 runs in the first game of 6 overs. The target was chased down by Vivek’s team easily with the help of Man of the Match, Cory, who played a winning knock even though he was playing cricket for the first time. As it was getting dark, we decided to play one more match and end the session.

Image

A few highlights of the match were Vivek getting bowled out by Lasha, Dilina getting bowled out by Angga, Cory and Aditya raining sixes all over the park, Bhrigu shamelessly appealing every decision, Tobias fielding like Jonty Rhodes, Franco running between the wickets like Arjuna Ranatunga and Mathew swinging his bat like a baseball pro.

 

After the tiring session everyone headed to Spruce for a well-deserved glass of beer and snacks. All in all it was great evening of learning and fun.

Image

Thank You everyone for being such a Sport and enjoying the game of cricket with the other MBA folks.

FROM Nanyang Admissions Blog: MBA World Summit
Submitted by Bhrigu Vasisht

 

MBA student Bhrigu Vasisht from Nanyang Business School, Nanyang technological University (NTU) was selected as one of the top 100 most inspiring MBA students worldwide. The MBA World Summit took place at IESE Business School in Barcelona from 25 – 27 March 2015.

 

Image

 

Bhrigu Vasisht, who is in NBS Full-time MBA Class of 2015, was chosen as one of the 100 most inspiring MBA students worldwide out of 3,000 MBA applications from around the globe. The rigorous selection process required an essay followed by a video interview. The selected MBA students travelled to Barcelona to meet top executives from carefully selected companies to develop life-long networks and learn about some of the challenges that contemporary businesses face, and as future business leaders, how the MBA students can gear up for them.

 

The event spanned across 3 days and 2 nights in which the first evening was a light networking session over drinks. The 2nd day was dedicated to participant-led workshops as well as parallel sessions with the top executives of the companies.

 

Image

 

The fun part kicked in on the 3rd day when participants went on a cultural expedition followed by a light lunch and a relaxing networking session at the beach club.

 

Image

 

Overall, this was quite a unique and special experience which helped Bhrigu grow as a future professional and it has provided him with the opportunity to represent NBS at such an exclusive global event.
