Reaching Out




Recently, I had the opportunity to attend the 2013 Reaching Out MBA conference in New Orleans. I didn’t know what to expect from an LGBT MBA conference, but as the only attendee from New Mexico and my first MBA conference, I knew that I was an ambassador for my state and university.  From the beginning cocktail mixer, I knew I was in the right place to become inspired. I had an opportunity to challenge myself, and was on the cusp of having the ability to grow as an LGBT student and professional.

The Reaching Out MBA is an organization that empowers LGBT MBA students to become professionals who will lead the way to equality in business education, in the workplace and throughout society.  At the New Orleans conferences, I was joined by over 1,200 students, business leaders, and recruiters.

The conference usually lasts three days and includes panel discussions on issues relevant to today's diverse professionals like expatriation, employee assistance, energy, and changing global conditions.  The conference also hosts a case study competition, a business plan competition, and prides itself on sponsoring a high-caliber job fair, and on providing the ability to meet and network with other LGBT, ally MBAs and businesses. This year's conference will be held in San Francisco.

I had an amazing time and want to share my experiences with my MBA classmates.

Each year before the main conference, ROMBA holds an Annual Leadership Summit.  The Summit is the perfect opportunity to build your network, share ideas, and raise visibility through meeting and interacting with fellow MBA lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender business school student leaders. Topics covered often include outreach on campus, building awareness, and growing LGBT MBA student club organizations.

This year's School Leadership Summit will be held in Chicago on April 18-19th.

Registration, which is free for up to 3 MBA students from each school, will be available at the end of January. I’ll be attending and if you are interested in learning more about the conference or attending, you can contact me or visit www.reachingoutmba.org.


Morgan R. Nelson is a second-year MBA candidate with a concentration in marketing and operations.  He is a millennial, a humorist, and is passionate about aviation, craft beer, and creative marketing.  You can connect with him on Twitter @morgannelson or at www.morganrnelson.com

Income Inequality




“Income inequality” has become the current theme and in years to come it will influence our debates on many social and policy issues. President Barack Obama has income inequality as one of his major themes during the remaining term of his presidency and has talked a lot recently about reducing income inequality. He proposes to raise minimum wage as a potential solution to reduce income inequality.

Income inequality in its basic form is the wealth and income gap between the wealthy and those who earn considerably less than the wealthy. Economists track an index called Gini coefficient that measures the variance of income which ranges between 0 and 1. A score of 0 means that everyone in the society earns the same income and a score of 1 means all but one person in the society earn nothing. The Gini coefficient of the U.S., in 2011 was 0.477, in 2010 it was 0.469, and in 1967 it was 0.397. Each country is different and comparing the Gini coefficients among countries might not be fruitful. To give another perspective, according to a report published in 2012 by CNN senior writer Jennifer Liberto, CEO’s earned 380 times more than the typical American worker.

There are multiple causes cited for rising income inequality. First, the fundamental shift from manufacturing jobs to service sector jobs. Manufacturing jobs were high paying jobs and these jobs have migrated to low cost centers such as emerging nations. Those emerging nations are witnessing a rise in income as they become more competitive in the global marketplace. Second, corporations are expected to keep a tight leash on costs, which puts a downward pressure on wages. Finally, technology also has helped eliminate many jobs.

According to studies published independently by the Congressional Budget Office and the Tax Foundation, the government is already redistributing money and the federal-tax-and-spending system is extremely progressive and redistributive. The system redistributes $1.5 trillion from the top 40% of the Americans to the rest 60%. Is this redistribution enough to bridge the gap? Perhaps not. What then is the solution?

Besides raising minimum wages there could be other policy measures to address the situation. Supply side incentives such as change in tax policies, access to education and employment training are touted as potential long term solutions for income inequality. Some might even be tempted to think - should we even try to reduce income inequality? On the lighter side of things, analysis performed by Beverly Lahaye Institute found that among families headed by two married parents only 7.5% lived in poverty. Get a good education, get a job and get hitched.

Top 5 Tips from ASM Advisors


1. Get informed!
There are a variety of resources available for students to take ownership of their academic progress.  Advisors communicate important information about deadlines and upcoming events on the weekly listserv announcements and automatic email replies. Some of our other favorite resources include:
2. Don’t wait!
Students who have the most success in planning their academic progress are making appointments with advisors early in the semester.  We encourage students to meet with us throughout the semester so that when registration opens, you have a plan of which courses you will be taking.  Be on the lookout for the summer and fall schedule to be released in early April with registration typically opening for both terms at the end of April.  Also, students planning on doing international or national exchange programs are encouraged to start this process early.  There are a few steps to get transfer courses approved by faculty members, and the sooner we help students navigate this process, the better. 

3. Take charge and connect!
Make the most of your time at Anderson and take the time to go beyond the scope of your academic progress.  The more engaged you can be with other students, faculty members, student organizations, and your own professional development, the more satisfying this experience will be.  You never know where your networking opportunities can lead, whether it is toward a new friendship, opportunities in research with faculty members, or to your dream job.  Put yourself out there and dare to get involved.  

4. Quick questions?  No problem!
Come to Speed Advising every Monday from 1:30-3:30 to get answers to your quick questions about getting holds removed, course overrides, registration errors, waitlist questions and other concerns that take about 5 minutes or less with an advisor.  If you have more in-depth questions or want detailed course planning, you will want to schedule an individual appointment by calling 277-3290 or by talking with the front desk at Anderson Advisement. 

5. Graduate!
If you are about a semester away from graduating, it is time to apply for graduation!  This fast and easy online application asks for the courses you have remaining to graduate.  BBA students will then need to schedule a graduation appointment where we meet as a group to discuss graduation ceremony, signing up for the diploma, and sign a graduation contract detailing your remaining courses.  Graduate level students will receive approvals by faculty members once the graduation application has been reviewed.  Please see the graduation application deadlines below:

BBA Graduation Application Deadlines
     NOV 1 - Spring graduation
     APR 1 - Summer graduation
     JUL 1 - Fall graduation

MBA and MACCT Graduation Application Deadlines
     NOV 1 - Spring graduation
     JUL 1 - Fall graduation

All of the Anderson advisors care about you and your academic progress and goals. We are an engaged and outgoing office with a lot to offer our students. We want to meet you and help you reach your potential. Come see us!

Falling US Unemployment and Interest Rates



The goals of monetary policy as spelled out in the Federal Reserve Act which specifies that the Board of Governors and the Federal Open Market Committee should seek “to promote effectively the goals of maximum employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates." Therefore, the unemployment rate is considered to be one of the key gauges that the Federal Reserve (Fed) monitors closely. The US unemployment rate is calculated based on a survey administered by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The US unemployment rate has fallen steeply and it has taken some Fed officials by surprise.  One of the reasons for a steep fall in unemployment is the exodus of millions of workers. Job-seekers have quit looking for work because of various reasons such as retirement, enhancing skills through education, joining disability, or simply quit looking for work. Nearly 8 million part-time workers want full-time work and another 2.4 million workers want jobs but are not pursuing any opportunity. If you add these people to the unemployed pool the jobless rate jumps from 6.7% to 13.1%.

The latest household and establishment reports released by the Labor department shows that the unemployment rate ticked down to 6.6%. After seasonal adjustments US employers added 113,000 jobs. The drop in unemployment could also be attributed to the expiration of the federal jobless benefits. Those whose jobless benefits ended could have dropped out of the employable workforce and some of those settled for jobs that they would have passed over because they still had jobless benefits. However, it seems that the drop in the unemployment rate could be attributed to the latter. Economists predict that without jobless benefits the unemployment rate could further fall to 6.4% by June.

How does the Fed factor this latest information in setting interest rates? Since 2012, the Fed has maintained that they will not consider raising short term rates until unemployment rate falls to 6.5%. Recently, they have said that they will weigh in other factors such as under-employment rate, wage growth and so on. So far the falling unemployment rate has not triggered a strong wage growth or inflation. Therefore, we can reasonably believe that the Fed will wait until all indicators align to start increasing short-term interest rates, which could be why the stock markets shrugged off the jobs report. The Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 1.1% or 165.55 points on Friday.

Anderson Business Insider

<


Ben Bernanke’s term as the Chairman of the Federal Reserve ended on Jan 31, 2014. He presided over the last meeting of the Fed and signed off on the decision to pare back purchases of Treasury bonds and mortgage backed securities to $65 billion a month from $75 billion a month with clear indications that more reductions in bond purchases are on the way. These bond purchases were part of an unusual monetary policy maneuver called quantitative easing round three (QE III). Announced in September 2012, QE III involved $40 billion a month mortgage bond purchases in the open market with an aim to keep long-term interest rates low which in turn would increase borrowing, investment, and spending. In December 2012, a decision was made to increase the bond purchases to $85 billion a month. In June 2013, Bernanke announced that the Federal Reserve will consider a reduction in bond purchases contingent on positive economic data, inflation target of 2%, and unemployment target of 6.5%.

The Fed’s decision hinges on an improving US economy. The US economy is forecast to grow at well over 3% during the second half of 2013 and the Fed forecasts that this growth rate will be sustained in 2014 and well into 2015. The Fed could deviate from its plans if outlook for growth, inflation or unemployment shifts drastically. However, the unanimity in the Fed’s decision suggests that Fed economists are confident about sustained US economic growth.

All the prior announcements to reduce the stimulus or even mere suggestions to reduce the stimulus were followed by stock market declines around the world. The latest decision by Federal Reserve last week sent ripples through the global economy. The Dow Jones dropped 1.2% on Wednesday, Treasury prices rose, and the currencies of a host of emerging nations declined. The June 2013 announcement by the Fed had also sent the currencies of emerging countries into a tailspin. The monetary easing unleashed by the Fed and other leading central banks in developed nations found its way to emerging nations setting of a series of higher asset prices and higher capital account inflows. As the tide on monetary stimulus turns emerging nations that enjoyed higher capital inflows have to grapple with capital flight, declining currencies, higher inflation, and prospects of economic slowdown. These emerging nations are walking a thin line between raising interest rates to slow down inflation and capital flight and maintaining their interest rates to sustain and increase economic growth. The policy actions by developed and emerging nations definitely promise a lot of real life lessons in macroeconomic policy for business students. Let us wait, watch, and learn.

Follow Up, Follow Up, Follow Up: The Key to Setting Yourself Apart!




You’ve just spent three hours networking and connecting with a room full of recruiters, now what?  The follow-up after an Internship or Career Fair is just as important as what happens during the fair. The recruiter is leaving the fair with a stack of resumes, business cards and notes highlighting candidate encounters.  Sending a well-crafted thank you note can put your resume at the top of the stack and add a positive impression to an already positive connection.

Don’t delay, write a follow-up thank you note sooner, rather than later.  Most experts recommend doing so within 24 to 48 hours.  However, if you’ve missed the 48-hour deadline, write anyway.  Your note can be handwritten or emailed.  Just make sure that you treat the email like a formal letter and not as though you’re writing a quick message to a friend.  If your hand-writing is hard to read, definitely go with the email.  Keep your thank you note professional and to the point, and remember to proof read it!  Show your passion and follow the guidelines below to write a solid thank you note:

1. In your first paragraph, express your gratitude – “Thanks for taking the time to meet with me at the Anderson Internship Fair on Thursday” or “I appreciate learning more about the position at ABC Company.”

2. In paragraph two, make it clear that you listened to the recruiter’s needs for the position and that you’re prepared to address them and add value.  Reiterate why you’re the perfect candidate for the job and the specific experiences, skills or abilities that you bring to the company.

3. In your final paragraph, reinforce your interest in the position and the company.  Let the recruiter know you’d welcome further discussion.

Don’t forego one of the most important aspects of a Career Fair, the follow-up! Hopefully these tips give you a good starting point as you maintain a positive, action-oriented attitude in your relationship with recruiters. You will always gain an advantage and differentiate yourself from the competition by writing thank you notes to interviewers, hiring managers and mentors.  Each and every connection and conversation is an opportunity to move you and your brand forward!
