It feels impossible to sprint later

On May 6, 2012, in Leadership, by Jeremy C Wilson

This theory is true much of the time.  Imagine running a one mile race.  You start off in the middle of the pack and pace yourself.  You bet on the idea that in another lap or so, you’ll shift gears, catch up and eventually win.  But there’s just one problem. The moment you try, you don’t have as much left in the tank as you thought. ... More >>

Merger Article on The Education Matters Project

On April 27, 2012, in Education, by Jeremy C Wilson

If you look anywhere on the web today, you’re almost guaranteed to find a story on education reform. In fact, many of my blog posts talk about the same topic. While this is not necessarily a main factor that MBA applicants use in picking a program, today business schools are spending more time and resources on their social enterprise departments. Schools like Stanford that offer the joint MBA and M.Ed. Schools like Yale, reknowned for their nonprofit recruiting. And schools like Kellogg that have an entire department dedicated to Social Enterprise. ... More >>

 

Just a few weeks ago, many of you found out you were one of the lucky ones who got a call from Kellogg admissions.  They told you that you’d been accepted into the MBA program.  Some of you may have been pretty confident you would enroll here in the fall.  But for others you were uncertain, so you wanted to go check out the schools and see what they had to offer. And just a few days ago, when you thought you couldn’t be more excited, many of you come to Evanston to visit Kellogg during DAK (Day at Kellogg), which is Kellogg’s version of Admit Weekend. ...

How can we fix the education system today? My readers, friends, and colleagues talk about that question all the time, and many of them ask me that same thing. To answer this question, we have to understand what’s broken and what people care about in the education system. So here’s my question right back to them: Why does education matter to you? ...

Running a campaign can be (to some degree) self-taught

On April 19, 2012, in Careers, by Jeremy C Wilson

Learning how to execute a campaign is a skill that certainly be taught. In classrooms, you learn the basics. At conferences you learn the strategies. And by working on real campaigns, you learn what actually works in the real world.  And so in many cases, it’s easier to get started if you’re taught. But might there be a benefit to learning more informally? ... More >>

Few More Days

On April 13, 2012, in Education, by Jeremy C Wilson

Bringing forward a new idea or technology is not easy. Especially one that you are passionate about. And one where so many of the details make a difference.  Over the past few weeks, I’ve been working on just that. We’ve gone out personally and asked a large number of people why they care about education? And today, we are organizing their responses to you exactly what they said. ... More >>

 

America has long been seen as the land of opportunity. The place where you can achieve anything. The country where your starting point does not have to dictate your end point. The environment, where if you work, you can reach for the stars.  In many ways, this is true. In fact, I’ve seen it happen many times over. On the other hand, the numbers also tell another story. ...

Writing it down

On April 9, 2012, in Careers, by Jeremy C Wilson

Have you ever had an idea that you knew was good, but forgot about it later in the day. What about an email you wanted to send or call you wanted to make, to make progress on an idea you were working on. It’s happened to me and I’m willing to bet it’s happened to you too. But one way you can avoid missing big ideas is by simply writing them down. ... More >>

 

Easter Sunday

On April 8, 2012, in Education, by Jeremy C Wilson

I’m not surprised that Easter Sunday comes in early April. It’s the beginning of spring time, the flowers are starting to bloom and the sun is finally starting to come out again after being cold for months. As a result, it always feels like a time of recharging for the rest of the year, which is exactly what the Easter season symbolizes. ... More >>

Black Hole Of Emails

On April 3, 2012, in Business School, by Jeremy C Wilson

In business school, we live by our email accounts. We get emails all day, every day. Sometimes from professors and faculty. Other times from clubs and group members. And sometimes from friends and classmates on campus organizing social events. As a result, sometimes it can be really hard to get to all of you emails. And forget it if you’re in a joint program with two email accounts. ... More >>

 

School is Expensive

On April 2, 2012, in Law School, by Jeremy C Wilson

Just today, we attended a financial aid information session at the law school. Every year financial office can give their obligatory talk about how student loans. During the session, we all pulled out our loan papers and saw how much debt we had to pay back. The average amount … well let’s just say it was a lot of money.
