Adventure in Vietnam in the Cass Business MBA Program

first_img“Reaching the summit of Fansipan was an unforgettable experience, one it was my privilege to share with our MBA students, alumni and colleagues,” said Robinson. “It has resonated far beyond my expectations.” Last Updated Apr 27, 2017 by Kelly VoFacebookTwitterLinkedinemail About the AuthorKelly Vo    Kelly Vo is a writer who specializes in covering MBA programs, digital marketing, and personal development.View more posts by Kelly Vo A few weeks ago, a number of MBA alumni and current students from City University London’s Cass Business School took a trip to Southeast Asia. The trip was to celebrate the end of the MBA International Consulting Week and was part of a pilot Leadership Expedition. It’s all part of Cass Business’ plan to develop a more adventurous MBA program that encourages students to build an explorer mindset—able to read and respond to rapidly changing business environments.The trip took MBA students, alumni and faculty to Hanoi, Vietnam before heading into the mountains to hike Mount Fansipan, the highest peak in Indochina. Cass Visiting Faculty and experts in leadership, Dr. Rodrigo Jordan and Gabriel Beck—two outstanding mountaineers—led the expedition.For first-time trekker and associate dean of MBA Programs at Cass Business School, Sionade Robinson, it was an experience. She recently shared her thoughts on a blog, What I Learned When I Changed My Shoes. “A few weeks ago I did something extraordinary I had never, ever, contemplated before, Robinson said. “I climbed a mountain. Not an especially tall nor difficult one but still a challenge.”For Robinson, she expected the learning experience to be rather immediate and intense with practices of communication, teamwork, and motivation, but it was more than that.“What did surprise me, in addition to the reflective learning, was the opportunity to observe their leadership practices as expedition guides and as facilitators of our desired outcome – the summit,” explained Robinson. “World class mountaineers hone their skills in some of the world’s most challenging environments, developing a sophisticated social and emotional intelligence that rapidly builds trust, confidence and a sense of cohesion. Watching them was a masterclass in which they demonstrated a number of hugely valuable leadership practices.”She then distilled her leadership lessons learned into five simple points:Spend time with each individual, getting to know everyone. It’s worth your time.Share your expertise to help other become more competent and confident in the outcome.Create a relaxed environment through warmth and good humor.Provide reassurance and encouragement when there is anxiety.Demonstrate adaptability in style as the situation changes. regions: London Adventure in Vietnam in the Cass Business MBA Program RelatedCass FTMBA Students to Hike One of Iceland’s Volcanoes for International Consulting WeekCass Business School MBA students took on the challenge of climbing one of Iceland’s most spectacular glaciers, Mt.

Columbia Outlines Future Agriculture Challenges Solutions

first_img Columbia Business School recently discussed the upcoming agriculture challenges all of us are set to confront during the global food-shortage crisis experts project will hit us within the next few decades.By 2050, reports indicate that agriculture will have to ramp up production by an astonishing 70 percent in order to keep up with the nine billion and counting global population. There are certainly solutions in the pipeline, ranging from big data, urban agriculture and GMO-free farms to curbing waste and synthetic foods. But it appears it’s not solutions we lack but rather the means to ignite a massive cultural shift to actually implement them, particularly among the few “big ag” corporations that exert control over production of the world’s food. The article argues that big data will be crucial to overcoming this impending food-shortage crisis. Gro Intelligence, an agricultural analytics firm founded by Columbia’s Sara Menker ’12, Sweit Ahderom ’05 and Nemo Semret ’99 SEAS to close gaps within production and distribution inefficiencies that “create barriers to investment.” Gro Intelligence’s flagship software Clews generates “user-friendly analytics and visuals to represent the most extensive collection of agricultural data available in a single product.” Clews “taps into a wide array of data, such as crop production, weather, climate trends, soil conditions, infrastructure and consumption patterns.”Vertical farming is another potential solution on the rise. Co-founded by Marc Oshima ’97 and David Rosenberg ’02, Newark, New Jersey-based AeroFarms “produces leafy greens that thrive in a high-tech production method that doesn’t require sunlight, soil or pesticides.”AeroFarms “mists water and nutrients onto the plants, which grow atop reusable cloths under LED lights in spacious warehouses.” The company’s method requires 95 percent less water “yet produces yields 130 times that of conventional farming, since they can grow and harvest all year in the climate-controlled environment.”When it comes to food shortage, meat is a major concern. Beef consumption slated to nearly double by 2050. According to a 2016 World Resources Institute working paper, “beef production requires 20 times the land needed for plant-based proteins like beans,” while the “livestock industry generates more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire global transport sector.” No one is more aware of this pressing issue than Ethan Brown ’08, whose Manhattan Beach, California company Beyond Meat produces “high-tech meat substitutes” using a heating, cooling, and pressure process to transform plants like pea and soy.Waste is another enormous obstacle in the food shortage crisis and perhaps the most complex to solve. The U.N. says a third of the food produced–1.3 billion tons–never gets eaten. But negotiating the waste issue will require help from all sides of the equation: technological innovation, environmental mitigation and a change in habits of consumption. And in what the article describes as potentially “the greatest test of human will and ingenuity … a sustained global effort to thoroughly understand and address climate change.” Last Updated May 5, 2017 by Matthew KormanFacebookTwitterLinkedinemail RelatedRobinson, World Affairs Council to Host Business and Agriculture ConferenceThe World Affairs Council of Atlanta Young Leaders, a non-profit organization affiliated with the Georgia State University – J.
