Prof. Robert Bies of Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business joins us for a conversation about the intersection of faith and business.

BlackRock’s Fink Pressed To Take Action Over Words In Dumping Fossil Fuels

January 15th, 2020

Fink’s pledges — including a “commitment to accountability,” proxy pressure on boards and actions to avoid thermal fossil fuels — “have teeth” compared to a high-level commentary on sustainability only a year earlier, said Leslie Crutchfield, executive director at Georgetown University’s Business for Impact center. “Yes, more-progressive advocates for [environmental, social and governance] investing will say BlackRock is late to the parade, but this [year’s letter] is not lip service.”

Georgetown University MSF Update – Opening Residency

January 14th, 2020

The Georgetown University MSF program has been really good about posting frequent articles on their site about the various aspects of their program. One thing that I always liked about the schools with their opening residency program, where students come to campus and work on a case study together. This is a great opportunity, especially for students in the online program, to bond and meet each other. Students also take part in an global consulting program, providing both international experience and another chance to build relationships.

Everything You Need To Know To File Your 2019 Taxes

January 7th, 2020

In A Burger World, Can Sweetgreen Scale Up?

January 4th, 2020

The first Sweetgreen opened in 2007, in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington. Mr. Neman, a recent Georgetown University undergraduate, had studied abroad in Sydney, Australia, and was inspired by its food culture. “It was cool to live an active, healthy lifestyle,” he said. “The trendy spot was the healthy cafe.” Back home, he enlisted two entrepreneurial classmates, Nicolas Jammet and Nathaniel Ru, and the three spent their senior year refining the idea in their dorm rooms and raising seed money from friends and family. Sweetgreen’s first location opened a few months after graduation, in an abandoned hamburger joint on M Street.

December 31st, 2019

Paul Almeida, dean and William R. Berkley chair at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business, says the new year is a time to “reflect upon the core values that define our Georgetown University community.” The McDonough School of Business, a Jesuit school, exists to serve students and alumni, Almeida says, something he always tries to keep in mind. “We must train our students to not only learn disciplines and skills, but also to continuously seek a better understanding of the complex world in which we live,” he says. “Perhaps the greatest contribution to our students’ formation is to guide them in their commitment to do right by themselves and the world.

Maryland Should Follow D.C.’s Lead On Youth Rehabilitation

December 27th, 2019

Despite the punitive correctional atmosphere of the 1990s and 2000s, Tyrone [Walker] earned his GED and enrolled in college with the help of a Pell Grant. Eventually, he tutored other young adults in the system, from learning how to read to GED prep. After being incarcerated for over 24 years, Tyrone was released last year. Since then, he has graduated from Georgetown University’s Pivot Program and now is an associate at the Justice Policy Institute using his life experiences and knowledge of the research to inform his work on sentencing reform for young adults.

Secrets To Confidence For Every Woman Leader

December 23rd, 2019

Another remarkable perspective comes from Catherine Tinsley of Georgetown University and Robin Ely of the Harvard Business School, who have studied gender differences extensively and found no discernable differences between women and men when it comes to confidence in the workplace. Their work points to workplace structure and unconscious bias as the real impediments to women’s advancement. Tinsley and Ely believe that women don’t speak up because their ideas are scrutinized to a greater degree than men’s are.

B-Schools Predict What 2020 Has In Store

December 23rd, 2019

Simon Blanchard, Beyer Family associate professor and director of the MBA Certificate for Consumer Analytics and Insights at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business, says 2020 will see continued leaps in technology in the areas of artificial intelligence and machine learning — and how those affect business and business education will present an interesting challenge….Blanchard’s colleague, Shelly Heinrich, associate dean of MBA admissions at Georgetown McDonough, is one of the only respondents to focus solely on what the new year has in store for business schools themselves. Heinrich, who is also McDonough’s director of marketing, says the struggles of the full-time MBA will continue to be well-discussed — but MBA programs will persevere, particularly because they continue to be lucrative for graduates. And waiting for a recession before applying to B-school may not be the wisest course of action.

Boeing Made These Shrewd Moves To Fend Off Investor Revolt. Will it Last?

December 18th, 2019

No ifs, ands, or buts.

Bellevue-Based T-Mobile Hauled Into Court Over Mega-Merger

December 4th, 2019

“Critics of the pending merger like economist Hal Singer, an anti-trust expert at Georgetown University, argue price hikes are likely coming for low-income consumers like Atkins if the merger goes through. “You have two carriers who really focus on the prepaid segment – that’s Sprint and T-Mobile, Singer said, “and so it’s just basic economics that if you go from a duopoly to a monopoly prices are going to higher.””

Museums Don’t Call It The Freer/Sackler. Call It The National Museum Of Asian Art

December 4th, 2019

Georgetown University marketing professor Karthik Easwar likes the change, but disputes the museum’s description of it. “I don’t think this is a rebrand. It is a renaming, it is making it more clear what this place is offering. It is clarifying and communicating the brand’s promise that you would not have known from the names Freer or Sackler,” Easwar said.

30 Under 30 – Social Entrepreneurs 2020

December 3rd, 2019

While studying abroad in 2016, someone slipped drugs into Danya Sherman’s drink and took advantage of the situation.

In addition to participating in the Target Accelerator, she has received support from Kairos and Halcyon House.

The Bear Without ‘Bull’

December 3rd, 2019

An op-ed by Michael Czinkota, associate professor: “There is often a strong desire for partisanship both in our domestic and global thinking. Russia keeps being framed as our most vile adversary. Such thinking has much historic background. Of particular worry has been competition in technology ― one can still recall the Russian leadership reputation effects of the space launches of Sputnik, the electric ball, and Laika, the space dog. It took the successful North Pole transit of the U.S. submarine Nautilus to re-declare the American advantage.”

Growing Pains

December 2nd, 2019

While potentially useful for developing “national character” as the plan proposes, investing in community service and sports participation will not quickly transition the country towards a more sustainable economic path. In an interview with the HPR, Jean François Seznec, non-resident senior fellow at the Global Energy Center for the Atlantic Council and adjunct professor at the Georgetown McDonough School of Business and John Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, explained that other objectives like transforming Saudi Arabia into a technological center, while seemingly viable, are not cost-efficient strategies given the pressing timeline. “They’re not going to make iPhones in Saudi Arabia.”

Big Tech Investigation Focused On Abuse Of Data, DOJ Antitrust Chief Says

November 26th, 2019

Apple Card? Google Checking Account? Why Big Tech Wants To Be Your Banker

November 26th, 2019

“Imagine your personal financial assistant, who basically keeps track of your spending but also integrates with other information on your life,” says James Angel, a finance professor at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. Because it knows your location, it can tell what store you’re in, guess what you’ll buy, and alert you to places that sell it cheaper. Or it might warn you not to enter a particular store because your bank account is particularly low.

The Catholic Church Takes Lessons From Business Management

November 24th, 2019

The teaching in Rome is provided by Le Moyne College, a private Jesuit college in upstate New York, and two Jesuit business schools: Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business in Washington DC and Barcelona’s Esade Business School. The programme is designed for anyone with a leadership position in the Catholic Church, not just Jesuits. Running a course for senior religious leaders is a first for the management professors from McDonough. But Paul Almeida, the school’s dean, says the curriculum for the school’s core MBA program has long revolved around teaching about having a greater purpose in one’s work. Subscription required.

Use This Simple Psychological Trick If Productivity Culture Has Made It Impossible For You To Relax

November 22nd, 2019

Over the course of several studies, our research with Georgetown professor Neeru Paharia found that the majority of Americans today consider being busy a status symbol. When asked to review hypothetical descriptions of people, Facebook posts, and letters from friends, subjects consistently associated indications of busyness with being more competent and ambitious, more sought-after in the job market, and having greater wealth and social status. This thinking seems to be culturally dependent, however, as a group of Italians we tested held a more traditional view linking leisure and free time with higher status.

Meet DC Inno’s 2019 50 On Fire Inno Blazer Winners

November 22nd, 2019

Georgetown Entrepreneurship’s rebranding has come on the back of one of its most successful years yet.

Community Projects Are A Win-Win For EMBA Students And Society

November 18th, 2019

Sachin Nagrani, who recently graduated from Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business in Washington DC, went to Colombia to help former Farc rebels market their coffee to global supply chains. Working with coffee farmers might seem unrelated to Nagrani’s current role at a digital healthcare start-up, but he took away important lessons about being attuned to business problems — a skill he applies to his new venture. “We learnt from them that the ideas we might get from textbooks may not be executable, given other constraints,” he says.

The Heat: RCEP Trade Deal

November 18th, 2019

It’s called the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership or RCEP. It includes 10 ASEAN countries and five of its major trading partners: China, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand. Together, the fifteen countries aim to create a massive trading bloc covering a third of the world’s gross domestic product. Until recently, India was expected to sign onto the deal. But, Prime Minister Narendra Modi withdrew, saying the pact would hurt its farmers, businesses and consumers. With or without India, the deal is expected to be signed next year. To discuss all of this: Atul Aneja is the China Associate Editor for the Indian daily newspaper, The Hindu. Arthur Dong is a professor in the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University. Saruhan Hatipoglu is CGTN’s Global Economics Analyst and the CEO of BERI. Steve Keen is a distinguished research fellow with University College London and author of “Debunking Economics.”

Sanders’s Tax Would Hit Small Investors

November 17th, 2019

The economic case against the tax is persuasive, too. According to a study of Mr. Sanders’s proposed FTT by Georgetown economist James Angel, the tax could reduce retirement savings by as much as 8.5% over a typical worker’s lifetime. These significant losses for ordinary investors may be one reason why the Obama administration’s economic team, which considered proposing its own FTT, ultimately decided against it.


You Can Now Test Your Implicit Bias At Business School

November 16th, 2019

Log on to a computer. Take a test. Different faces come up on the screen. You distinguish the old from the young.

When we do things in order to be good to others, we are thus rewarded by ourselves getting better emotional and mental health.

How Change Happens: Why Do Some Social Movements Succeed and Others Fail?

November 12th, 2019

What does (and doesn’t) work in building the better world we dream about? Why do some movements for social change succeed while others fizzle or even fail? For considering these questions, one of the most helpful resources I have found recently is the book How Change Happens by Leslie Crutchfield. She is the executive director of Georgetown University’s Global Social Enterprise Initiative. She and her team have researched some of the major recent movements for social change in the United States to find common patterns.

Why Alabama And Mississippi Have Suddenly Gone In Opposite Directions

November 9th, 2019

Bies of Georgetown University, and David De Cremer of the University of Cambridge and National University of Singapore.

It’s Not The Women, It’s The Workplace

October 31st, 2019

As Catherine Tinsley and Robin Ely write in the Harvard Business Review, “on average, the sexes are far more similar in their inclinations, attitudes, and skills than popular opinion would have us believe. There are “sex differences in various settings, including the workplace—but those differences are not rooted in fixed gender traits. Rather, they stem from organizational structures, company practices, and patterns of interaction that position men and women differently, creating systematically different experiences for them.”

Should There Even Be A Market Data “Debate?”

October 23rd, 2019

Jim Angel, professor at the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University the market data issue is extremely thorny and will likely be debated for some time. “We have been arguing over market data for over a century, and we will continue to argue over it for the next century,” Angel said. “Data is the new oil. Good data are essential for fair and orderly markets. The problem is how we define property rights in data. Right now, we have nationalized the top of book and last sale into Stalinist collectives known as NMS plans. We clearly need to improve the governance there.”

3 Steps To Prevent Employee Turnover

October 21st, 2019

Professors Brooks Holtom of Georgetown University and David Allen of Texas Christian University recently developed an index to measure turnover propensity. According to Holtom and Allen’s research, there are two primary drivers behind employee turnover: turnover shocks and low job embeddedness. Turnover shocks are incited by events such as marriage or a change of leadership that cause workers to re-evaluate whether or not they should remain at the company. Job embeddedness, on the other hand, relates to how strongly connected workers feel to the workplace. Job embeddedness tends to plateau when workers lack deep social ties in the workplace.

Can Uber And Lyft Survive If California’s Worker Protections Go Nationwide?

October 18th, 2019

“Right now they are both in the mode of ‘let’s capture market share,’ and the bottom line is less important than capturing revenue and market-share growth, but once you become a public company and you have to release your earnings every quarter, people will be very closely monitoring your earnings,” Reena Aggarwal, a professor of finance and director of the Center for Financial Markets and Policy at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business told MarketWatch in May, regarding to the companies initial public offerings. “There is going to be a lot of focus on that. They will have to raise prices, because of the pressures.”

The T-Mobile / Sprint Merger Should Be Stopped, Say Antitrust Experts

October 10th, 2019

Hal Singer, an economist at Georgetown University and one of the authors of the paper, says he thinks there is a strong case for blocking the deal. “What is so remarkable about this case is that DOJ’s complaint doesn’t pull any punches on the competitive harms” of reducing the number of carriers from four to three, Singer says. “That puts a huge burden on the DOJ’s settlement” to prove the complicated requirements on T-Mobile and Dish will actually preserve competition.

The Myth Of Deglobalization

October 9th, 2019

An op-ed by Ricardo Ernst, Baratta Chair in Global Business and director, Global Business Initiative: The Economist Michael O’Sullivan argues in his new book “The Leveling: What’s Next After Globalization” that globalization is dead.

4 Tips for Building a Unique Personal Brand

October 7th, 2019

An op-ed by Fiona Macaulay, entrepreneur-in-residence, Georgetown Entrepreneurship: “For entrepreneurs, especially young entrepreneurs, there’s no buzzier buzz word than “personal branding.” You’re starting a company, you don’t have much in the way of a conventional advertising or marketing budget, and there’s the social media you grew up on just waiting to be leveraged, for free, to get the word out about your new product or service.”

Is The NCAA’s Abusive Wage Cartel Finally Going Down?

October 4th, 2019

An op-ed by Hal Singer, adjunct professor: “In late September, an advocate for college athletes told a federal antitrust workshop that by ensuring that collegiate players who make millions for their schools don’t get paid a penny above tuition, room, and board, the NCAA is operating nothing less than a wage-setting cartel.”

Washingtonian Tech Titans

Melissa Bradley, managing partner, 1863 Ventures, and adjunct professor, McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University: In late 2018, 1863 Ventures was created out of Bradley’s earlier effort called Project 500.
