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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
From MarketWatch The dramatic speed of financial transactions can be matched only by the intensity of the controversy surrounding it, especially when it comes to high-frequency trading. In markets for stocks, futures and foreign exchange, transactions take place in milliseconds to microseconds (or even nanoseconds). Markets for fixed-income securities including corporate bonds and over-the-counter derivatives such as interest-rate swaps are also catching up quickly by adopting electronic trading. To many, the “Flash Crash” of May 2010 was a wake-up call for reevaluating market structure. A series of technology glitches proved to be highly costly for some brokers, proprietary firms and marketplaces in terms of both profits and reputation. The SEC launched investigations into HFT firms and their strategies. French regulators introduced a financial transaction tax. Author Michael Lewis wrote “Flash Boys.” The list goes on. With this fallout comes important economic questions: What are the costs and benefits to investors … Read More »The post Opinion: High-frequency trading payoff tied to news — Haoxiang Zhu appeared first on MIT Sloan Experts.
