Student Stories: Anjuli Gupta, MBA '08

Anjuli Gupta doesn't believe in just doing something good in the world; for her, it's about doing the most good that she can. Passionate about natural resources, Anjuli hopes to focus on energy finance after graduation. Having worked on environmental policy for non-profit, grassroots organizations, she sees finance as a major driver toward positive change. In order accomplish her goals, Anjuli believes that she needs to know how to run a team -- and how to design an organization that is effective. She came to MIT Sloan to learn all that and more. Anjuli spoke with correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate about what she gained from the first-semester core, the rollercoaster ride of internship interviews, and spring break in Costa Rica.

Using power for good

Mahatma Gandhi said, "Be the change you want to see in the world." That's not necessarily a quote you'd expect to hear from the CEO of a global service company speaking to business school students. But that's precisely the message Marilyn Carlson Nelson brought to MIT Sloan during her March 2006 Dean's Innovative Leader Series appearance, presented here. Nelson heads the Carlson Companies, a privately held parent corporation of global integrated service companies. She's also a widely recognized leader in corporate social responsibility. Carlson Companies, she said, is very much attuned to the implications of its operations for the environment and people across the globe. She urged students to take the same path, asking them to focus on business models aimed at both profitability and improving the world. "You have a tremendous opportunity to use power for good," she said. Nelson is introduced by MIT Sloan Professor Gabriel Bitran.

To deny the deniers, champion the cause of science — Christopher Knittel

From WBUR Cognoscenti When a group of students recently met with me about getting MIT to divest from fossil fuels, I suggested a more effective approach: If they really want to mitigate climate change, I suggested, start by calling out politicians and others who continue to deny the scientific consensus about climate change and its causes. And as I thought about the need to hold people accountable for the consequences of their science denial, I realized that institutions such as my own — not just our students — also need to get off the sidelines. We need to do a better job of defending and championing scientific truth. And we cannot wait. The title for a Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works that opened on July 18 gets it right:“Climate Change: It’s Happening Now.” But so, too, is denial, and not just of the manmade causes of climate change. In our classes … Read More »The post To deny the deniers, champion the cause of science — Christopher Knittel appeared first on MIT Sloan Experts.
