Sustaining Santiago

This entry is from our  student guest blogger, Abbey Rosenwinkel:

The theme of our Wednesday visits can be characterized by one word: sustainability. In one way or another each speaker we heard from emphasized the importance of sustainability in Chile. Although all three companies were very different, there was a clear link between them.

First we heard from Emprendo […]

Tale of Two Santiagos

From our student guest blogger, Colleen Callinan:

The View from San Cristobal Hill

After our morning stroll up San Cristobal hill, we boarded the bus for a 45 minute ride to a local barrio to meet with the leaders of a grassroots community center being aided by Rodrigo Aguyayo, founder of Proyecto Propio. We watched […]

Santiago: A City of Change & Innovation

From our student guest blogger, Abbey Rosenwinkel:

To better understand the culture of a city, you have to be willing to travel to locations that can’t be found on Trip Advisor. On Monday morning we traveled down to the once economically booming neighborhood of Recoleta to see some of the local food markets. Recoleta at one time was known […]

From the City to the Mountains

From our student guest blogger Abbey Rosenwinkel:

Our first two days in Chile couldn’t have been more opposite. Upon arriving we were swept into the whirlwind of a city that has many similarities and differences from Chicago. Chile’s painful and polarizing political history, their impressive focus on sustainability, and the geographical location near the Andes mountain range gives […]

Spring Break Studying (and Savoring) Santiago, Chile

An adventurous group of thirteen students in Quinlan’s Graduate School of Business are heading away from chilly Chicago to the warmer Chile south of the equator for our Spring Break.  With temperatures in the 80’s and sunny, clear days that mark early-autumn in that part of the world, we are mixing business with pleasure in […]

Teaching and Learning During J-Term

It is -2 degrees with a snow squall visible from my window. In a short time I will have my daily online meeting with nine brave undergraduates who are scattered throughout the globe and completing their basic Marketing course during our 2-week intensive J-term.

Of course, after a relatively balmy December, few may have anticipated another […]

Why Black Friday and Cyber Monday are Passe

Retail analysts have labeled shopping revenues on this past Black Friday and Cyber Monday “disappointing.” The number of shoppers over the four-day long Thanksgiving weekend decreased by more than 5% in comparison with 2013.  In addition, the National Retail Federation (NRF) reported that revenues were down 11%.  The NRF blamed “early holiday promotions” as a […]

Online “No Man Is an Island”

I am reminded of this quote by John Donne as my Marketing 201 online class moves into the final week of the summer session.  Having taught this online course for several years, I am always struck by the range of expectations that students bring to an online course.  Despite their technology and social media savvy, […]

Mission Accomplished!

Today our first cohort of Intercontinental MBA students finishes the last of their coursework and completes their degrees.  It has been a quick eleven months and these full-time students have been diligent and engaged since last August.  They participated in the Graduation Festivities in mid-May, but their final courses, including the capstone in which they […]

IMBAs in the Big Apple and Beyond

Upon returning from our 5-week Asian Odyssey, the Intercontinental MBA Pioneers walked with the Spring graduates, but have one more quarter to degree completion.  This final summer quarter began with a few weeks of online classes and continued with a one-week Finance intensive in New York City.  For several students this was a first trip […]
