What Makes A Firm Competitive? Wisdom from BCG’s Bruce Henderson

This year I have been reflecting on the legacy of Bruce Henderson. A Vanderbilt alumni and Owen School professor, Bruce was a pioneer in the business world, founding the Boston Consulting Group and participating in the creation of the management consulting industry. To celebrate the hundredth anniversary of his birth, BCG launched an Institute in honor of its founder and followed up this summer with a new book on strategy. It is a fitting way to remember such a great […]

Aspiring Business Leaders Reflect on Leaders Who Inspired Them

One of the big reasons that students enroll in our executive-level MBA programs is that they want to become better leaders. So on the first day of classes for students in the Executive MBA and Americas MBA for Executives programs at Vanderbilt, I thought it was so fitting that each student was tasked with reflecting on past leaders in their lives—specifically the leadership qualities that personally inspired each student to do great work.

皆さんこんにちは。Class of 2016のYasuyoです。5月前半に2年生が卒業し、私たち1年生は約3カ月半の夏休みに入りました。この長期間の夏休み、通常学生はインターンシップを行いますが、私達社費派遣の学生はこの期間を自由に使うことが出来、海外での交換留学や旅行、一時帰国等それぞれの予定を楽しむことになります。 私は5月11日~29日までの3週間、Owenの協定校であるEuropean Business Schoolでの交換留学に参加してきました。フランクフルトから電車で30分ほどのWiesbadenという街に滞在し、FinanceやTax, Leadership,またヨーロッパのFinancial marketなどを学びましたが、Audiの工場見学やハイキング等も含まれており、とても充実した3週間となりました。また、朝から晩まで南米やオーストラリア、アメリカ等世界中から集まる学生と一緒に過ごし、種類豊富なドイツビールやワインを楽しんだり、週末にはアムステルダムやルクセンブルクに一緒に出掛けたことも、とても良い思い出となりました。終了後はイギリスへ留学中の友人を訪ねてイギリスを観光し、私自身3年ぶりに訪れたヨーロッパを堪能することが出来ました。ドイツ以外にもノルウェーやフランス(今年他の日本人学生が参加予定)、北京などのプログラムもあり、プログラム内容や期間、国によって興味のあるものを選ぶことが出来るのもOwenの魅力です!


He thinks he loves this city, but not more than I do. I am Chaitra Nayini and I graduated with a Masters in Business Analytics from University of Cincinnati in May 2015. I am proud and honored to say that I am associated with Owen via my husband, Mukesh, who is currently a second year MBA student. When Mukesh first told me he planned to go to Owen, I remember searching the internet frantically to know more about the place […]
