Xavier Center for International Business & MBA students participate in White House initiative

This past summer, Xavier University’s Center for International Business (CIB) was invited to participate in the Young African Leaders Mentoring Partnership. This is the Obama Administration’s program to engage young African leaders actively promoting positive change shaping the future of their continent. It supports leadership development, promotes entrepreneurship and connects young leaders with one another and the United States. The CIB was invited to mentor Patricia Nzolantima of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). She is an entrepreneur and a community organizer, looking for academic support to create a micro-lending program for her community.

Three faculty members of the Williams College of Business - Mee-Shew Cheung, PhD, (associate professor of Marketing and director of the CIB), Rebecca Luce, PhD (assistant professor of Management) and Hasan Faruq, PhD (assistant professor of Economics) created an MBA independent study program with four current MBA students to devise a micro-lending service. They hope to support low-income female entrepreneurs in the DRC and provide them with opportunity to improve their economic and social status. The course will use WebEx to connect Xavier students with locals in DRC.

Xavier University MBA Offers Values-Based Leadership Concentration

Xavier University’s Williams College of Business is offering a Values-Based Leadership Concentration (VBL) in its MBA program, starting in spring semester, which begins January, 2013.

To successfully complete the concentration, students complete three elective courses in the VBL concentration from these options: Ethical Issues in Marketing, Business Ethics through Film, Principles of Leadership, Values-Based Leadership, Corporate Citizenship- Sustainability, International Ethics (Study Abroad in London), Health Industry Law and Ethics, and Strengths-based Leadership. They complete a Governance course as their capstone requirement.

Xavier University’s Williams College of Business educates students of business, enabling them to improve organizations and society, consistent with the Jesuit tradition. For more information, call 513-745-3525 or email xumba@xavier.edu

XUWMBA Workshop: Successful Negotiating

Negotiating is something that you do every day. Whether you are starting your career, interviewing at a new company, going for a promotion or just closing a project with a team, strong negotiating skills can be the determining factor between winning what you want versus just settling for the leftovers. Getting to yes is a little easier when you understand the basics of negotiating.

Join us for a discussion on how you can more proactively close the deal in your life!

How: Email xwmba@xavier.edu to RSVPs by January 11th.

When: Tuesday 1/15, 5:15-6 pm

Where: Xavier University, Smith Hall Room 247

Xavier/WCB Jugaad Competition

In the Jugaad competition, $20 (Twenty Dollars) is given to each team. The time to work out a Jugaad (a creative idea that quickly leads to significant and measurable benefits) is fourteen weeks. That is, each team should use the $20 investment and grow that investment to achieve significant and measurable benefits. The following two criteria are used to assess the significant and measurable benefits from each Jugaad team’s submission.

  1. Impact of the Jugaad idea on the reputation of Xavier, WCB and its communities.
  2. Monetary value of the investment at the end of the four weeks allocated time.

A committee will judge the final results of all teams, based on the above criteria, and the winner will be awarded a cash prize and Entrepreneurship softwares – total $30,000 values.

Jugaad Results: It has been shown that the very act of participating in the Jugaad process has resulted in the development of skills in fast-tracked creativity for the participating teams. Innovative companies such as Apple and Google, which emphasize experimentation as an essential part of enhancing development speed for new products, have embraced Jugaad in their arsenal for innovation.
