Automotive Lightweighting as a Strategic Opportunity for India's Automotive Industry

Although steel has been the material of choice for many automotive components since the dawn of the automotive age, there is evidence that a change to lightweight intensive materials would bring significant environmental and economic benefits.

Student Stories: Roxanne Chen

Roxanne Chen knows how to make an impression. This effervescent Tawain native is understandably well known among her fellow Sloanies for her infectious energy, refreshing candor, and her rather fervent love of Bon Jovi. Meet her just once and you'll understand how she was able to get her accounting classmates to alleviate their pre-finals jitters by leading them in a rousing rendition of "Living on a Prayer." The Marketing-focused Roxanne spoke with correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate about how her classmates helped prepare her for the rigors of the recruiting process, the benefits of a small school, and that one transcendent time when she actually touched Jon Bon Jovi's hand.

Student Stories: Megan Ford

Megan Ford's road to business school took some less-than-traditional turns. A member of the Screen Actor's Guild, Megan has worked in front of the camera and behind the scenes on several movies and tv shows (see Mona Lisa Smile, Law and Order, Dawson's Creek). Through her strong connections in the New York film and political communities, she became involved in the non-profit Asia Society, traveling throughout India, Japan, Kazakhstan, Thailand, and Korea. The more time she spent off set, the more Megan began to think about her long-term goals. She took the first step toward a new career by coming to MIT Sloan. Her current focus is the strategy and marketing side of media and entertainment; it's certainly different from acting, but Megan will be on familiar ground. Before beginning her internship with Disney, Megan talked with correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate about the benefits of the alumni network, the joys of production, and the difference between the talent side and the studio side.

G-Lab '09: Smart Card, Kuala Lumpur

This chapter in MIT Sloan's G-Lab podcast series focuses on a team of Sloan Fellows working in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for a local technology company. The company, whose flagship product was a type of smart card, was seeking a short-term action plan as well as an assessment of smart card trends and technology recommendations. The team, consisting of four Fellows with a variety of cultural and industry backgrounds, was able to leverage the benefits of diversity for the success of the project. Team member Camilo Syllos, SF '09, talks about the importance of managing expectations--on the part of the client and the team--and his belief that a successful G-Lab result requires creativity, dedication, and an openness to other cultures and ideas.

Meet MIT Sloan's new dean: David Schmittlein

Twenty-seven years ago Dave Schmittlein was a 25-year-old assistant marketing professor at Wharton teaching MBA students who were on average three years his senior. Now, he is the new dean of MIT Sloan, charged in part with ensuring MIT Sloan's MBA Program provides value to today's generation of 28-year-olds. The true measure of that value, he says, lies beyond the confines of one academic program. MIT Sloan's value accrues from its array of programs, its role as a forum for top business leaders, and its creation of knowledge that benefits all tiers of the global community. Correspondents Michelle Choate and Scott Rolph spoke with Dean Schmittlein about MIT Sloan's role as a premier management school, his background, and his thoughts on what he aims to accomplish as dean.

MIT competition addresses economic dislocation in the digital era — Irving Wladawsky-Berger

From The Wall Street Journal Few topics are as critical, and as challenging to anticipate, than the future of jobs in the digital economy. Along with its many benefits, the digital revolution has resulted in enormous dislocations in labor markets and a sharp polarization in job opportunities over the past several decades. Recently the Initiative on the Digital Economy, an effort at MIT started three years ago to better understand the broad changes brought about by the relentless advances of digital technologies, launched a competition inviting organizations to envision the future of work. The competition aims to identify, celebrate and award prizes to “organizations that are inventing a more sustainable, productive, and inclusive future for all by focusing on improving economic opportunity for middle- and base-level income earners.” The competition is open to for-profit and non-profit organizations of any size, age or type, in any nation around the world. It seeks creative solutions in four major categories: Skills: Prepare members of the workforce for … Read More »The post MIT competition addresses economic dislocation in the digital era — Irving Wladawsky-Berger appeared first on MIT Sloan Experts.

Forget Anbang, Marriott is a better bet for Starwood — Barbara Dyer

From Fortune Let’s say you have offers for two different jobs that interest you. The first one pays more, but comes from a company you don’t know that much about. The second offer is a bit lower, but that company has a long history that you know well. How do you decide between the two? By taking the higher offer, you guarantee yourself a bigger salary, but you also open yourself up to more unknowns down the road. The lower offer means you’d work for a firm you admire and while your initial paycheck would be smaller, you might realize other benefits such as professional development and career advancement down the road. In a sense, this is the same dilemma facing Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, the Connecticut-based owner of such brands as Sheraton, Westin and St. Regis. Since agreeing to an initial $12.2 billion takeover offer from Marriott International … Read More »The post Forget Anbang, Marriott is a better bet for Starwood — Barbara Dyer appeared first on MIT Sloan Experts.
