What is it about your MBA program that students love the most?

Our customizable, student driven, collaborative, diverse, pay it forward culture.

Tell us about one new course that has recently been added to your curriculum in the last year.  How do you see this influencing the current cohort?

Human and Machine Intelligence: Machines help solve complex problems, lessen decision bias, scale human effort, and spot hidden patterns in big data. However, they lack the creativity and insight that top executives possess. Together, executives and machines have the potential to make powerful “thought partnerships.” Students use hands-on cases and applications --- including IBM’s Deep Blue and Google’s AlphaGo that beat Chess and Go Grand Masters --- to learn how to use a critical set of machine learning decision tools, such as natural language processing, sentiment analysis, and pattern recognition to discover new competitive strategies, turn raw numbers into convincing stories, and make less biased judgments. The overarching goal is to enable students to confidently lead data science and design teams, know the expansiveness and limits of machine-learning complex decision support tools, and be capable of applying human + machine thought partnerships to grow businesses or disrupt Grand Masters in any field. 

If you could invite a fictional character to lecture in one of your courses, who would it be and what course would he/she teach?  Why?

Captain America - Leadership and Crisis Management: Business, it seems, has entered an age of crisis. Every day another major company enters the headlines, and usually not in a flattering context. These trends are further amplified by an ever-faster-moving global news cycle and are scrutinized by activists, interest groups, and an increasingly skeptical public. Crises have been frequently conceptualized as threats, but they can also provide opportunities. Seizing such opportunities requires a close connection to the company’s position in the marketplace as well as strategic frameworks for effective crisis response. Captain America will bring his vast experience leading the Avengers in crisis management from the point of view of a manager. To anticipate and manage crises successfully, managers need to combine strategic thinking with an awareness of the importance of the ethical dimensions of business. That is, managers not only need to understand the motivations and strategic capabilities of stakeholders, but also should appreciate the importance of value-based management in preventing and managing corporate crises. This class is based on experience-learning: a rich set of case studies and crisis simulation exercises balance the theoretical and conceptual frameworks and will help participants to improve their strategic thinking as well as team management and communication skills in high-stress situations. Students should be prepared to be challenged and work hard.
