Fireside chat on female leadership

Last Monday we held a fireside chat with Tabitha Hayes, VP of Global Brand Management at Electronic Arts. In an informal setting, with pizzas and beers, Tabitha told us about her career in the super male-dominated field of video gaming, where <1% of senior positions are held by women. Undiscouraged by loneliness at the top, Tabitha made it her passion to develop talent in general, and female talent specifically. She explained to us what male and female leaders can do to advocate for women (e.g. in performance reviews) and to develop their talent (e.g. provide them with opportunities, tell other leaders about a woman’s talent and achievements).

Moreover, she talked about the importance of non-violent communication, implying that whenever someone is interrupted, or someone repeats someone else’s idea in their own words, a senior leader should point this out this behavior and call attention to it.  She does the same thing for mansplaining, or when she notices that people show an unconscious bias towards women in the hiring or performance processes.

Finally, Tabitha emphasized the power of the network. Working in a male-dominated industry, she has always been supported and benefited by female colleagues from other offices or companies, who face the same struggles and want to help each other. Her advice to women: be nice to each other, there are plenty of seats at the table! She also emphasized the importance of men being aware of these issues and supporting women, and she was very happy to see that our event’s attendants were 50-50% male/female!

A very inspiring leader from which we can learn a lot, thank you Tabitha!

Breakfast with Chairwoman Johnson & Johnson LATAM Consumer Division

Winter time, Monday morning 8:00 AM – not our favorite meeting time in Barcelona. Nevertheless, more than 40 students gathered for a breakfast with Suzan Rivetti, Chairwoman of Johnson & Johnson LATAM’s Consumer Division!

Suzan told us about her 30+ years career, and the challenges she faced as a woman in Brazil, raising two young children while also building her career. She provided us with advice for our careers and our lives, each of them based on a personal story. Suzan emphasized the importance of finding the right company: a firm where you feel at home and have the potential to grow. Moreover, she told us it is important to stick to your values, even if those conflict with the company values or if you are afraid this could have a negative impact on your career. Suzan told us numerous stories where she stayed true to her values, and even left the company at some point because she did not feel respected, but finally it all turned out well and she came back.

We were very inspired, thank you Suzan!

Entrepreneurship Club Stockholm trek 2017

The Entrepreneurship Club has just returned from its second trek this year to Stockholm, after the very well received Tel Aviv trek. 20 ESADE MBA students jumped on the direct flight to Stockholm, the “Venice of the North”.

Stockholm has long been perceived as the capital of Scandinavia, as Sweden is, undoubtedly, the leader of the five Nordic countries. Sometimes considered a high-welfare socialist country, Sweden has recovered brilliantly from the 1990s social problems and built up a dazzling active business-driven society. In the 21st century, Stockholm proudly stands in the frontier of the European cities best for starting up a new business, lavishing with its rich resources in highly educated talents, strong financial investment, stream-lined government processes, and not to mention the extremely low corruption rate and well-governed legal system.

Decathlon Visit

The Operations & Supply Chain Management Club celebrated the end of Term 3 by visiting the fulfillment center of Decathlon, the world’s largest sports retailer and online sports store.

After taking our last exam of Term 3, a group of 20 students met for a cava toast before heading from Sant Cugat campus to the fulfillment center by bus. There was an atmosphere of excitement and relief after finishing the first year’s courses, but also because of the participant’s interest in witnessing how a top company in Sports Business operates. When we arrived to the facility, one of the fulfillment center’s manager was kindly waiting to welcome us at the reception and briefly provide an overview of their supply chain before we embarked on a tour of the fulfillment center. We were pleasantly surprised in the way in which Decathlon reflects its mission to make sports accessible to the greatest number of people throughout its current distribution model.

Berlin study trip – Exploring the new venture and high growth horizon

50 ESADE MBA students.
17 startups and venture capital companies.
5 days of excitement.
Invaluable learnings.

The ESADE MBA Berlin study tour for Class of 2018 didn’t put students sitting in a university classroom, but kept us moving from one company’s office to another, with a 7-day Berlin AB zone metro ticket.

In the pleasant breeze of Northern Germany’s month of June, we arrived in Berlin, which was once the greatest city of the world, and was seriously destroyed in WWII. Berlin bears mixed memories of pain and loss, but today it is vibrant and new again, and is recognized as one of the best startup hubs of Europe.

ESADE wins 3rd place in the Johnson & Johnson Case Competition

Our main motivation for signing up for the Johnson & Johnson case competition was because of the challenge it posed.  Pharma-economics is a challenging, highly complex industry, and we knew it would require an incredible amount of hard work and research. Despite knowing this, we wanted to push our limits and expand our knowledge of this sector.

The harder the challenge, the more rewarding the end result, so we went for it with everything we had.

The project was about creating a market access strategy in EMEA for the launch of a severe respiratory disease treatment drug. Additionally, we were posed with the question to optimally transfer this solution to emerging markets. Read the rest of this entry »
