Exams are over and you’ve earned the right to be a summer slacker. Here are some top ideas to while away the extra hours during summer break in Melbourne. Boxing Day Test: with Christmas Day done and dusted, grab some sunscreen and watch Australia beat England in the Boxing Day Test – reserve tickets still available for day one (ticketek.com.au) 26-30 December 2010. New Year’s Eve Fireworks: so you can’t be in Sydney or New York to see in the new year? Make the most of the free public transport and watch the New Year’s Eve fireworks on the banks of the Yarra thatsmelbourne.com.au. 31 December 2010. Summadayze Dance Party: relive your youth at the Summadayze dance party on New Year’s Day at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl (tickets from ticketmaster.com.au). 1 January 2011. Open Air Cinema: pack the Aerogard and catch a movie at an open air cinema over summer. Favourites include Rooftop Cinema on top of Curtin House in the city (rooftopcinema.com.au) or Moonlight Cinema in the Botanic Gardens (moonlight.com.au). Now until March 2011. Mornington Peninsula Wineries: just over an hour’s drive from Melbour ne, on the Mor nington Peninsula, you’ll find some of Victoria’s best wineries. Make a day-
trip of it, and be sure to stop by Paringa Estate, Kooyong Wines, or join the in-crowd at T’Gallant’s Spuntino Bar (tgallant.com.au) for lunch. For something decidedly more stylish, plan ahead and book a table at Port Phillip Estate Winery’s award winning restaurant (portphillipestate.com.au). Great Ocean Road: go west (south west) and head for the Great Ocean Road – best avoided over the peak New Year period, unless you’re heading for the Falls music and arts festival (fallsfestival.com.au). Be sure to grab one of the Surf Coast’s best burgers at Bottle of Milk on Lorne’s main street. Australian Open: you’ll have just enough time to watch the Australian Open grand slam tennis tournament before term 1 starts back in January, with ground passes available from $19.00 (australianopen.com) 17-30 January 2011. Fed Square Live: soak up the sun and enjoy the free concerts at Fed Square, fortnightly each Thursday over summer (fedsquare.com.au). Better still, enjoy the weekend barbecue next door on the banks of the Yarra at Riverland. Until April 2011.

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR ANDREW JOHN You know him from Managerial Economics and EPP - Find out more! What did you want to be when you were a child and What was the last movie you how did you end up in your field now? saw? Rating out of 10? When I was heading into my last two years of high school there was a gap in my timetable and I needed to choose one more subject. I think the choice was between biology and economics. More or less randomly, I chose economics. Then, when I was applying to university, I had no idea what I wanted to study: I was literally contemplating everything from French literature to physics. Economics seemed like a compromise subject, somewhere between the arts and the sciences, so that’s what I chose. As I was finishing up at university I had no particular idea what to do next; one of my professors suggested I should go and do a PhD. That seemed like as good an ideas as any, so that’s what I did.
I seem to watch a disproportionate number of movies on airplanes these days. The last one I saw was The Kids Are All Right, while on a flight to Perth. I like to think that I grade carefully, so I’ll give it a 7.8. What are you reading right now? Rating so far out of 10? Oh, now I get to sound pretentious. I’m reading Madame Bovary, which – to my embarrassment – I have never read before. And if that’s not pretentious enough, I’m even reading the odd chapter in French. That’s unusual for me, though – most of the time I read contemporary fiction.

I feel as if I ought to answer this with some story of an inspiring professor. But I was an undergraduate in Dublin, Ireland, and so a lot of my memories seem to be of drinking Guinness in the local pubs. That doesn’t sound so good, though. How about this? I remember one winter there was – unusually – a very deep snowfall, and that night there was an eclipse of the moon. So I remember being out on the university rugby field, almost up to my waist in snow, spotting the eclipse as the clouds cleared. And I don’t think I had consumed any Guinness at all that night.

NET IMPACT The Energy it Takes to Listen: EDF Climate Corps fellow finds savings at Cisco by Opening his Ears By Jeff Cheek Jeff Cheek, 2nd year student at MBS, spent his summer internship as a "Climate Corps Fellow," a program run by the Environmental Defense Fund in which they place MBA students at Fortune 500 Companies in the U.S. to evaluate and recommend energy efficiency projects. To date, Climate Corps Fellows have identified projects that can save $439 million in net operational costs over the project lifetimes. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The conference room on Cisco System’s San Jose campus had nearly reached capacity, with 700+ interns listening intently to CEO John Chambers. For 45 minutes, Chambers offered up one piece of wisdom after another. “The hardest part about communicating…” he paused for added emphasis, “is listening.” A simple statement, but incredibly pertinent to my summer work as an EDF Climate Corps fellow at Cisco Systems. Back in May, when half of the 51 Climate Corps fellows gathered at EDF’s San Francisco office (the other half congregating in New York) to participate in a crash course on energy efficiency best practices, I quickly discovered that almost no one had a background in energy efficiency. I met bankers, marketing managers, engineers and sales people, but no energy efficiency consultants. So then what makes an MBA student a good fit if he/she has no prior experience? With Climate Corps’ success to date, EDF is proving that energy efficiency is not rocket science. When equipped with a simple toolkit, a passion for the environment and a good set of ears, MBA students with little to no experience in energy efficiency can deliver big results. Since Cisco had previously hosted two EDF Climate Corps fellows, my task was not to identify savings but to strategically address a way to harness more energy efficiency gains with less effort. By listening to Cisco employees, I learned that internal champions at Cisco are driving efficiency solutions on their own, but there is no standard process for communicating these best practices across the whole company. With this in mind I: 1. Built a financial model designed to standardize financial analysis and project selection metrics, as well as provide a single location for project data to be stored, tracked, and compared (eventually to be brought online and updated in real time). 2. Prepared case studies to be distributed internationally to gauge best practice implementation rates 3. Designed a strategy for all tools to be merged onto a network to drive process automation and deliver improved functionality. A key takeaway from the many interviews I conducted – Cisco employees are naturally driven and competitive and are delivering effective efficiency solutions on their own. Harnessing their collective creativity will produce dramatic results when best practices are shared throughout Cisco’s global locations, it’s just a matter of communicating them across the organization in an efficient manner. Coming to this conclusion did not require a experience in the energy efficiency industry, just a good set of ears and the time of helpful Cisco employees.
MBS CONSULTING CLUB Ukari Warmann & Swarup Joshi
The Consulting Club has had a very busy Term 3! We have had events organised with BCG, Bain & Company, Booz & Company, AT Kearney, Deloitte Consulting, E&Y and Partners in Performance. These have been a mix of networking events, structured case workshops as well as the E&Y Case Competition. Based on the fantastic student response, it’s fair to say that it’s been well worth the effort – so a big thank you to the firms and students for making the events successful. Other events have included ‘Art of Dressing for Business’ and the ‘Movie Night in the Courtyard’ towards the end of term to end on a strong note. February 2011 will be a very busy time for those interested in consulting careers and we’ll be in touch regarding firm presence at MBS. The Consulting Club will be organising case practice during over the vacation period to help students prepare for their case interviews. So, good luck for your exams, have a great holiday and get prepared for a busy Term 1, 2011!

Crowning the MBS tennis champions The first MBS tennis tournament was blessed with sunny weather and lovely people.Â The small number of participants allowed everyone to get a lot of playing time. The two finalists Elena and Augustin (Sept 2010 intake) decided to share the trophy, easy to do since they share a house, too.Â
ASEAN & CHINAMASTERS
MBS MARKETING ASSOCIATION Kenneth Rodrigues
This term saw a lot of activity from the association. In total, we had 7 events over the course of the term, which were a mix of guest speakers, faculty research sharing and a case workshop. The events organized were as follows:
The highly popular Brand Manager @Work speaker series continued this term with 2 sessions, one at the start of the term, and one towards the end. We had brand and product managers from BP, GSK, I&J and Honeywell to share what it means to work as a brand/product manager. Kookai breakfast event, our main event of the term. This event was attended by nearly 80 people, a mix of students, alumni and even from the public who had no affiliation to the school! Robert Cromb, the founder and Managing Director of Kookai gave a very personal and engaging presentation on his experience. He candidly shared his successes, his failures and his thoughts on the importance of marketing in business. Joint event with Net Impact on "The Green Shopper". This event, presented by Prof. Jill Klein and Ross Wyatt from Net Balance addressed issues green and ethical consumers and how to get consumers to be more ‘green’ with their retailing habits. Joint event with the Consulting Club for "The Art of Dressing Event". Image professionals were invited to advise students on dressing up, something that some of us students have neglected since stepping out of the workforce. Marketing Faculty Speaker Series, with Prof. Don O'Suillvan. Don shared his research during this lunch time event, talking about the very important topic of marketing metrics and "How to get the CEO to care about Marketing". Case Study Workshop hosted by Elmwood, specifically in relation to "Brand Simplicity". Jonathon Cartwright, Managing Director of Marketing Consulting agency Elmwood led a very insightful session on marketing case type interviews. The 3 best presenters were invited to visit Elmwood for a day.
In all, this was a very successful, albeit busy, term for the organizing committee. Special thanks to the committee for their time and effort in making the association one of the most active clubs in MBS; Mamta Gupta, Nadira Hashim, Bryan Leong, Bonze Cheng, Jef Van Acoleyen and Kenn Rodrigues.
INCULT Festival of Lights! Namrata Sonawane
Diwali is a festival of lights symbolizing the victory of righteousness over wrong and the lifting of spiritual darkness. It celebrates the victory of good over evil - and the glory of light. This festival commemorates Lord Rama's return to his kingdom Ayodhya after completing an exile of 14-years. Of all the festivals celebrated in India, Diwali is one of the most glamorous and important. Enthusiastically enjoyed by people of every religion, its magical and radiant touch creates an atmosphere of joy and festivity. We (Incult) tried to create a similar atmosphere at MBS. Diwali is a time for fun and revelry. People decorate their homes, distribute sweets and light thousands of small oil lamps. The light emanating from small oil lamps makes the whole atmosphere of Diwali a very warm experience. Performing pooja and wearing new traditional clothes are an integral part of the Diwali rituals. Exchanging gifts amongst near ones, bursting fireworks and playing cards with friends and family are all a part of the Diwali fun.
explaining the significance of Diwali, the victory of good over the evil. Rangoli and Firecrackers are an integral part of Diwali. It is an age old belief that Goddess Lakshmi visits well decorated homes during Diwali to offer her blessings in the form of good will and prosperity. At MBS, everyone enthusiastically participated in these activities by drawing Rangoli and lighting fireworks. This was a new experience for most people and thus, enjoyed it thoroughly. The most awaited part of the whole celebration was mouth watering Indian delicacies. People enjoyed the traditional Indian sweets as it was a novelty for them.
An interesting customs which characterizes Diwali is gambling with a pack of cards. A small introduction was given, apprising people to play “Teen Pati” (Indian version of Poker).

I was involved in planning the event and feeling nervous is inevitable. I always wonder whether things will go well, if expectations will be met, and if people will show up. Fortunately, participants were engaged and the responses given by the panelists created a very interesting afternoon. I learned the following key takeaways from the discussion: •
Investment banking and funds management as an industry as a whole is not in the business of number crunching; it is a business of managing relationships. At the end, you are playing with other people’s money.
Do not be afraid to make a mistake; sometimes the bold decision is the right one.
When you make a mistake, it is better to come clean as soon as possible rather than hiding it as this will only create a bigger problem in the future.
Be ready to work until late hours if that is what is required to get the job done.
Moreover, my favorite: You do not admire the good investment bankers. There are plenty of them; you admire the good investment bankers that do not stay in the office until 3 am every day. The Investments Panel session arranged by the MBS Finance Club was a great opportunity to get some valuable feedback on a range of issues for those wanting to build a career in the Finance industry post MBA. I particularly appreciated the discussion from the panel around the skills required for those wanting to enter the industry. The panel agreed fundamental technical skills for roles post MBA included; knowing your way around financial statements, financial modelling and the ability to interpret the numbers –typically the skills you learn in MBA Finance subjects. I was also interested to hear the tips from Neil Brown, Co-founder and Principal of Minerva Capital Advisors whom emphasised how persistence, determination, and hard work are critical to a successful career in the industry. I found this to be a very informative and interesting session. Thank you to the panel members for their time and insightful discussion and to the Finance Club for arranging this event. – Michael Rieusset MBA PT 2011
OUTDOORS CLUB Abhinav Garg & Mulyadi Wibowo
This term we have organized two events, the first one was the "supposedly Dandenong Hike" in cooperation with the Hike4Hunger organization. The hike was eventually changed to a city hike due to bad weather however it was still enjoyable nevertheless.Â Another one was the Grampian trip last week. There were 12 people who joined this trip from many different nationalities and backgrounds. We all got along very well and truly enjoyed the trip very much. We had a barbecue, saw the kangoroos in the wild andÂ had a 3 hour hike to the Pinnacle. We spent the day visiting various spots around the Grampians national park such as Mckenzie Falls. The highlight of our trip was a morning hike up to the Pinnacle, which is a great look-out spot over the entire national park. We also visited the Aboriginal Cultural Centre which is a beautifully designed building featuring the story of the local Koorie tribe. All in all it was a very fantastic and enjoyable trip and we hope to organize more such trips next term.
