INSIDE SPREAD


Yearbooks don’t just happen by themselves. In fact, we can safely say that this particular yearbook took the combined efforts of the entire student body: the writers, the photographers, the voters, the bakers, the candle-stick makers... Seriously though, the 2011 yearbook team consists of a few dedicated students who had a great time making this project up from scratch. Together, they created colourful cardboard voting systems, designed layout concepts, held staff meetings via Skype, negotiated for quality (international!) printing, maintained epic Google Document spreadsheets, and pestered classmates for photos, information, stories, and bios. This book represents the best memories of the graduating class, and we sincerely thank the team that worked so hard to bring everything together: Jennifer Babaian Sheila Babayan Ryan Gunasekera James Orr Julia Sevilla Ukari Warmann

David Austin To the extraordinary people I have met this year teaching entrepreneurship.

Catherine de Fontaney

Congratulations Class of 2011! We are extremely proud of you, and wish you all the very best. Research says that after 5 years, the words “supply and demand” is all you’ll remember about your Economics courses; but we’d be very grateful if you could remember “Added Value” as well! Best wishes, Catherine

I would like to share with you a little of what you have taught and shown me: When you commit to a path people will give more help than you could ever have imagined. You can achieve more than your current vision allows you to see, it is a choice. Success envisaged in gentle terms has a way of growing. Be open to the joy of learning from the many interruptions on the path to success, each is a gift if you unwrap it carefully. Don’t forget that the entrepreneurship course is like the Hotel California and I hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, David

Geoffrey Lewis

First the tasting notes: 2010 is an excellent vintage. By selective and judicious blending of diverse varieties we achieved a complex cohort with some with interesting highnotes. Showing some early roughness on the edges of the palate, this softened as the year progressed to result in a crisp, seductively textured class that displayed a full, open, and accessible approach to learning. Undoubtedly has excellent career potential. Winemaker’s comments: Think about it! I could be spending my time with mature gentlemen of my own advancing years (read boring old farts) sitting around a board table making out to be doing something useful – or I could spend my time with energetic, thoughtful, challenging and committed young people who are shaping the future. What a privilege to be able to do the latter.

“ I have appreciated the opportunity to enable students to become entrepreneurial and to create new ventures. Thinking and acting entrrepreneurially becomes a “way of thinking and living”, it becomes a lifestyle where the new opportunity excites and “calls” us to achieve and make things happen. Become agenda setters and enjoy discovering opportunities and developing new ventures that create both personal and social wealth.” Cheers, Ian

Jack Goodwin

An American philosopher, Eric Hoffer, had a wonderful quote about learning. He said, “In times of change, learners inherit the Earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.” I hope you have had an enjoyable and enriching learning experience at MBS and have learned a lot. However, we live in times of profound change, so you will soon be perfectly equipped for a world that no longer exists. Your learning “journey” should just be starting. As you leave MBS, I hope that you have learned to learn, and that you will remember the “course” isn’t ending, it’s just starting. I’ll close with a quote from another famous American philosopher, Jack Welch: “Wake up every morning knowing it’s the dumbest you’ll ever be.” It’s been a pleasure to teach some of you. Best wishes to all of you. Jack Goodwin

Kannan Sethuraman

I would like to thank you for having given me this opportunity to say a few words in the annual yearbook. At the outset, let me first congratulate each one of you for your commitment and devotion towards excellence and for graduating from MBS with flying colours. As you rejoice this proud moment, please take the time to recognize the various individuals who have made a difference in your life and who have helped achieve your dreams. I am confident that each and every one of you has the ability to make a difference to this world. I hope and wish you will continue to aim high and will have the courage to follow your heart and ambitions. I wish you all the very best in your future endeavours.

Dear ex-students and everyone in the class of 2011, I wish you all the best as you graduate and move into the next exciting adventure of your life. If there is one piece of advice that I’d like to share with you, it is that you should nurture your mental agility. These days the world is filled with uncertainty and many changes are taking place in our economic and social ecosystems. However, the fundamental lessons that you learned during your MBA will serve you well into the future. Stay cool, apply what you’ve learnt in your MBA, but remember to continually build new skills and experiences in your life. Nurture the friendships and networks that you began at MBS. Most of all, be mentally agile. If you are adaptable in your mindset, everything else will follow, including new career opportunities, better ways for you to interact with clients and colleagues, new approaches as you tackle the challenges ahead. I wish you every success; your future is bright.

Dear Class of 2011, I very much enjoyed teaching many of you during your time at MBS, and I wish you all the best as you return to the workforce. I know that you have all learned a huge amount during your studies, but do not forget the maxim of Descartes – “question everything.” Keep on learning, keep on questioning, and use your knowledge, networks and compassion to build a better business and society.

Dear Class of 2011, Sometimes the flow of information and the pace of change in the workplace can seem overwhelming. One of the best talents you can develop and refine in your working lives is the ability to pick out key pieces of information. Measure and observe the things that really matter. Also, new trends and “hot topics” can be seductive. However, often they are only a flash in the pan or just a repackaging of what is already known. Watch out for these false leads and vapour trails. Don’t always follow the herd and keep an eye out for information they isn’t right in front of you, but may be in your peripheral vision. Lastly, the most important talent in your working and personal life is the ability to communicate, be it by voice, email, letter, report or power point presentation. Always work at improving your communication skills.

Good luck, Mark

I wish you luck in your future careers and you unfolding lives. Peter Danaher

I just love being asked to share my thoughts and give advice. So here’re some quite gratuitous pointers. Although the notion of emotional intelligence is a bit ten-years-ago, it does contain an important grain of truth - that in any career getting on with people and being liked is important for doing a good job and being perceived as having leadership potential. A related point is that people skills gradually become as important as technical skills in any job that is predominantly service focussed, and this includes includes people management. Thirdly, friends come and go in any work environment but enemies just accumulate - so we all need to avoid making them in any working environment where we intend to stay. Competition with others needs to be tempered with with what the Romans called humanitas common decency.

With the MBA in your pocket you are now ready to embark on a successful career — be it in banking, marketing, consulting, or actually producing something useful for the world. ;-) Here are my “bullet points” of advice: • Live your life to the fullest and don’t rest on what you have achieved, ever • Always try something new, something that challenges you and takes you out of your comfort zone • Do the right thing, not what is convenient or expedient. Do what you believe in and what you can proudly talk about with your grandchildren one day • As hard as you worked for your success — now and in the future, — never forget that it is you who owes society, not the other way ‘round. Stay humble, contribute your share, encourage others to do theirs, and try to give back

David Pollard

Best of luck in all your future endeavours!

Congratulations on a wonderful achievement. I know that each of you have learned a lot during your degree and have made many new friends if I had any advice it would be to stay in touch. Stay in touch with your learning by staying intellectually curious and taking the opportunity that every workplace will provide you to keep learning and changing. Stay in touch with your classmates by regularly meeting up with them or interacting on email or the web. Stay in touch with the School by coming back to alumni events (we hold these internationally as well as domestically) and reunions. We are always keen to hear what our alumni are doing and very proud of the many and different ways in which you serve your companies and communities. You carry our best wishes with you. Jenny

ASEAN ASEAN is a syndicate made up of a bunch of students who have no idea what is written in their mission and vision statement, nevertheless united by their passion for good food (such as hot pot and moon cake), good fun (playing mah-jong or congklak) and good company (members of the committee ). We aim to utilise our South East Asian charm and hospitality to provide alternative social settings for MBS-ers outside the fancy lecture rooms. We hope these would help to ease some of the pressure of Segmenting-TargetingPositioning, BATNA, or even normal distribution that the students often face, no matter whether they come from South East Asian countries or not, whether they in Part-Time, Full-Time or Weekend mode, as long as they are the proud members of Melbourne Business School family.

Basketball As we all know an MBA certainly stretches the brain - but what about stretching the body? Well basketball is certainly a sport that stretches both! With this in mind, in mid-2010 a group of like-minded enthusiasts decided to form a basketball team, playing games every Sunday at Melbourne Sports and Recreation Centre. These elite athletes first bonded as part of the official MBS basketball team that comprehensively dispatched of AGSM during the 2010 annual inter-varsity sports day. As they basked in the glory of victory they new this was a feeling that they could get used to! However, this feeling didn’t last long - we lost our first game of the season! But we went on to win our next game (current record is 2 wins and 5 losses) and we formed a great bond along the way. Thanks to Ryan Gunasekera for bringing the team together and also to Ukari Warmann, Darren Yau, Matthew Schwantes, James Blake and Bill Yu for showcasing their talents - both on and off the court!

Consulting The consulting club finished up this year in good spirits, hoping to follow a year of record placements (2010) with the hope that we can do even better in the future. The club aims to help students become aware of the consulting industry, and assist those with consulting aspirations to successfully land roles. We’ve been extremely busy for the past few years. In particular, the annual EY case competition, ethics roundtable, weekly case practices, and company case workshops / presentations have become highlights of the MBS experience. Additionally we’ve sponsored movie nights and miscellaneous events like ‘the art of dressing,’ which have been both fun and informative (and led to MBS students getting a 20% discount at Joe Black!) Most importantly, we’ve found giving back to the MBS community to be incredibly rewarding -- our role leading the club has been a highlight of our time here at MBS. Thank you for giving us the opportunity, and we look forward to seeing you out there after graduation.

Incult During my time at MBS, I got an opportunity to learn a lot about various cultures of the world. My desire to showcase the culture of my country on a global platform led to me taking active interest in the activities of InCult (Indian Cultural Club) at MBS. It has been a fun experience with InCult due to the great interest and enthusiasm that people at MBS have shown to learn and enjoy different cultures. Our Holi event at the start of the year saw MBSites having a gala time painting each other’s faces with colors; some were seen getting rid of their inhibitions and rolling on the colorful floor. The color-painted faces brought the colors of India to the MBS courtyard. Diwali, India’s festival of lights brought a glimpse of Indian culture to MBS. Once again, MBSites were seen enjoying themselves lighting ‘diyas’ and sparklers. Everyone gorged on the delicious Indian food and enjoyed betting their candies in ‘Teen Patti’, the Indian version of poker.

Marketing Association The MBS Marketing Association was once introduced during a student event as the Advertising Club. Clearly, this person missed the lecture during the Marketing core class about what marketing is about, and I’m sure Patrick Butler would like to have a few words with this person. In any case, as you will see from the events, the Marketing Association is hardly about advertising. We inherited a 1 or 2 event-a-term association, and grew to have more events and members. This term (T3 ’10) was our most successful with 7 events organized during the term (one of the most active in school). Naturally, all you MBA smarty-pants will say that volume does not equal quality, but considering an average turnout per event of around 35 people, I would say that this is a pretty darn good job!

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing eli

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing eli

The association will be leaving behind a bit of legacy with the branded events (naturally, being a marketing-based association). We’ve started the Marketing Faculty Speaker Series as well as the highly popular BrandManager@Work speaker series, which we hope will continue long after we are gone. In short, to the new committee, don’t mess this up!! In all, its been a great experience. We’ve had the chance to meet some amazing leaders, gain some insightful knowledge and build some useful networks. The collage below is a collection of some of the events and brands we’ve brought into the school. Good work, guys The team: Mamta Gupta, Nadira Hashim, Bryan Leong, Bonze Cheng, Jef Van Acoleyen and Kenn Rodrigues

Net Impact

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing eli

MBS’ class of 2011 has taken leaps and bounds towards Net Impact’s long term goals. Under the masterful guidance of bourbon-swilling, smokey Jeff Cheeky, the indefatigable and inherently catching enthusiasm of Mindy Leow, and with occasional support from Luke ‘pass me the microphone’ van O, we’ve seen: a huge surge in new memberships (big up the Sept. 2010 intake); the first ever Australia-wide Net Impact conference; and what promises, at time of going to press, to be the most high profile APAC Net Impact event on record in early 2011; the inauguration of a Melbourne professional chapter; and a plethora of events geared towards raising the profile of social impact activity. It’s been truly exciting to watch an ever-increasing numbers of future business leaders join the cause and actively engage with making our world sustainable. It’s never too late. Luke

Photography We accomplished quite a bit actually. Ask the reception, and they will tell you that we harassed them for pots, pans, furniture & lighting. We have run behind the kitchen staff begging them to make us napkin swans. We have had confidential planning meetings at The Corkman! We got a little high on red wine. We threw an afternoon party under cherry blossoms. We gave away tons of cash for pictures you guys sent in. We basically had a ball... and we LOVED your enthusiasm... we LOVED doing it.

Poker

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing eli

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing eli

The MBS Poker Club was formed and approved in September 2010 after a bunch of part time students decided their once-a-term poker nights were so much fun that they would be a good idea for a new club. The club now has over 50 members of both part time and full time students, and held it’s first event on November 12th 2010, with a great mix of 52 beginners and experienced players playing in a members-only lounge in a city bar. It was a very fun night of music, movies, friendly poker playing, and some real competitive playing as well. The first MBS Poker Club champion was Will Herron, who scooped the pool at the twenty dollar table twice. Well done Will. The Poker Club Team is already planning next event, so keep your eyes peeled.

Soccer Rain or shine, 8o or 38o weather, week 1 or week 9 or finals week; we were there, on the pitch, kicking around and kicking each other. Definitely a club for the hard core, not for the faint-hearted! The main question is: Where were you? The soccer club has experienced its best moments, with a glorious 4-0 win against a lackluster AGSM team. The fact that it was a 7-a-side game and they only had 5 people with no subs while we had 14 people doesn’t matter! It’s all about the spirit and the will to win. We’ve also seen the best of Latin skills, European precision, Asian determination, African power and Aussie brawn. Oh yeah, and there were also the Americans to make up the numbers ;). We’ve also experienced some of our worse moments. More than once, there were a few crunching tackles that saw a couple of players show up the next day in crutches (some people say they were faking to get sympathy from the girls, but who am I to say…). We’ve also had a few pulled hamstrings, mostly from bending down to tie a shoelace. World cup winners, we are not. But for this Beautiful Game, we have passion. Kenn

Sports Since the inception of Sports club in term 3 of 2009, it has been a fascinating journey. Covering every sport in demand, Club has hosted range of sporting events from Soccer, Basketball, Cricket, Squash and Tennis to marathon and biking. Functioning alongside the other related clubs we ignited the fighting sports spirit among students which got reflected in our 6-0 soccer game win against AGSM in 2009.

Inter intake Cricket & Basketball tournaments has seen the healthy rivalry and competitive sprits of students while providing wonderful experience to newbies. Games created an easy and informal environment for students to interact and network with different batches. Going by the Melbourne sprit, we ran with the city in Runmelbourne marathon and biked along the yarra river. MBS Sports Club continues to provide avenues to engage in sports and maintain a healthy, sporty and stress free lifestyle. Vineet

Squash It’s been a fun year on the hard-wood with over twenty squash club meetings, and hundreds of great points. It was great seeing all of the regulars out there on Friday’s and Saturday’s sweating and subsequently limping during class the next week! I hope all of the newcomers had fun and got an introduction to the game if only one time. Don’t forget to mention Squash in your job interviews, you never know who’ll take you up for a game! Hope to see you on the court soon, and remember Squash is the sport of business! Cheers, Adam Blakney Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipis


Women in Management (WAM) 2010 was an exciting year for WAM, we continued to assist students to make the most of their time at the school as a resource and support platform, where they can better acquaint with fellow female students, faculty, alumni and business professionals in the community. We had some great events through out the year including: Women in Finance – Challenges and Opportunities, with guest speakers Jan Begg (ex-Head of PMO, ANZ Bank), and Vicki Allen (COO, Trust Company Ltd.).

Wine and Philosophy Thinking and drinking. Not two activities that normally go together, but they worked out quite well for us this year. We kicked off the revitalised Wine & Philosophy club on the 221st anniversary of the storming of the Bastille with a look at the French Revolution, its causes and the lessons it holds for us today. And we drank a bit of wine. We then turned our attention to the subject of ambition, and the differences and tensions between public and private ambitions. And we drank some more wine. We discussed the role of business school in modern society, focusing particularly on what has made MBS a purposeful and meaningful experience for current and former students. We started to drink wine, stopped for bread and cheese, and then finished the wine in the mes. And then there was the winery tour, which was just good fun. In vino veritas.
