MEET YOUR SRC! Andre Visser (President)
Was most likely to become an accountant in his high school yearbook and is secretly a really great karaoke singer (in his eyes, or to his ear in this case!)
Vanessa Landry (Vice President)
Was most likely to have her name in bright lights for saving the world (Peace Corps, solving AIDS in Africa etc). She is an epic baker. 
MEET YOUR SRC! John Hunt
As a kid, he wanted to be a veterinarian and his hidden talent is being able to clean the house without actually achieving anything.
(Treasurer and Secretary) Wanted to be Governer General when she was younger, and her secret talent is best leJ hidden.
Wanted to be a supermodel -‐ as a teen she used to lie in bed stretching herself for as long as she could.
Was most likely to become a ﬁghter pilot. He skateboards and can cook like nobody’s business.
Jill Tang (Alumni)
Was most likely to become a lawyer as she always had too much to say. Her secret talent is being very ‘housewifey’.
Rajeev Batra (Clubs)
Wanted to be a pilot when he was a kid and can cook excellent curries.
(CommunicaJons and IT)
Was most likely to be an architect and her secret talent is being able to bake the world’s best brownies.
Was most likely to become a doctor and is excellent at changing nappies! 
FORUM WITH THE DEAN Thank you to all the students who aPended Jenny George’s forum, hosted October 14. There was a lot of valuable informa9on covered in regards to the school’s progress since the strategic review and an update on MBS ac9vi9es. Please read below for some key points raised.
KEY POINTS: The school has three main study modes with strategies for each: 1.
Accelerated (FT MBA): This might change to a smaller, single intake aimed at early career “high ﬂyers” with 5 years work experience. The school is looking at a complete redesign of the curriculum to roll out in the end of 2012 (at the earliest).
The school will be hos9ng reference panels with current students, employers and alumni to think through ideas. If you are interested in being a part of these, please keep your eyes open in Student News for how to sign up!
Professional (PT MBA): The students value ﬂexibility and credibility of the program. MBS is currently reviewing entry pathways for the PT students in regards to the PDM and GMAT requirements.
Execu9ve (EMBA): This is aimed at senior leaders with a large value on the networks made within the program. EMBA and the endowment fund make up 50% of what MBS does.
MBS is looking at a new program that would provide the following for students: ✦ Individual mentors ✦ Speciﬁc 9melines/schedules ✦ An integrated school & business community
• This would bring more high level business leaders into classes, more speakers, and bePer internships & employment opportuni9es ✦ Dis9nc9ve programs for both Mount Eliza and MBS to build on their strengths
Integra9ve Project (Consul9ng Skills) -‐ Term 1, 2011: As an introduc9on to the new curriculum, a new
consul9ng elec9ve is being piloted next term to teach frameworks and applica9on of them in a real-‐ life consul9ng assignment. A small budget and mentor will be provided for each syndicate, courtesy of a small consul9ng ﬁrms support. More informa9on was made available in the Student News, 22 October.
Dean Recruitment: Jenny announced that MBS will formally commence its recruitment of a new dean in the
coming months. Jenny was oﬀered an ini9al 18 month contract with the understanding that a full search would be conducted at a later date. While she will put forth her name for formal considera9on, she is very pleased that the process has begun and is grateful for the opportunity to be considered for further appointment.

V A R GAU
ANNE LYTLE - ADJUNCT PROFESSOR You may know Anne from managing people, negotiations and leadership for social impact - but how well do you REALLY know her? Do you also teach at other schools? At the University of Michigan, I teach a course called “Nego9a9ng Globally” and workshops on Managing Oneself and Team Eﬀec9veness. .
As an academic, the best possible reward is to have students experience some success as a result of our work together. For example, just today, a student in my nego9a9on class was nego9a9ng a job oﬀer and as a result of some advice I gave her, was able to secure a more advantageous oﬀer! But probably the most amazing experience was an execu9ve in one of my leadership programs who as a result of our discussions, decided to quit his high pressure job to spend more 9me with his young family. Interes9ngly, he ul9mately achieved greater professional success while working fewer hours and living a happier, more balanced life. Contribu9ng to that outcome was fantas9c.
Aside from teaching, are you involved in any other professional work? Yes, I work through my own company called “Lytle and Associates” where I provide training and consul9ng to private, government and nonproﬁt organisa9ons in the areas of leadership, managing people, emo9onal intelligence and nego9a9on. Applying my own knowledge to bring value to people and organisa9ons is really the reason I get out of bed in the morning!
What inspires you and gets you up in the mornings? I like to help people become aware of their behavior and its impact on others. Most importantly, seeing those people change for the bePer is really inspiring!
What did you want to be when you were a child and how did you end up in your ﬁeld now? I wanted to be a veterinarian when I was a child and actually went to university majoring in Neurobiology. Fortunately, I discovered before I got too far that I was not good with blood and opera9ons! At that 9me, I was taking a psychopathology course and began pursuing psychology as my main area of interest, which led me aper gradua9on to apply to PhD programs and a subsequent specializa9on in Organisa9onal Behaviour.
What are you reading right now? RaJng so far out of 10? A fabulous book called “The Book Thief” by Markus Zusak. Deﬁnitely a 10/10. I also recently reread Karen Blixen’s “Out of Africa” while visi9ng her actual farm site in Kenya. It was a 10/10 to read about her experiences “on loca9on”. What are you listening to right now? I mostly listen to dance mixes of popular songs. My favorite DJ’s at the moment are Sydney’s Dan Murphy and a Bri9sh guy named Meck.
What made you decide to go into teaching? I never really intended to become a teacher, and actually was so shy when I was a child that I wouldn’t speak in front of other students in class. My ﬁrst teaching experiences at the age of 24 were frightening, but I was able to overcome my fear of public speaking. Aper 20 years of prac9ce, I hope I have improved from those early days!
What is one thing that most people and/or students are surprised to learn about you? Most people are surprised to know that I am quite passionate about endurance sports and have par9cipated in a number of races more than 100kms long. In recent years, however, my goals have been a bit less ambi9ous!
What was one of your more memorable experiences from when you were a student at university? It certainly wasn’t sliding down an ice-‐covered hill in sub zero temperatures at 8am on a Saturday morning for Chemistry lab in Ithaca, New York at Cornell…
And what are your plans for your next holiday or Christmas period? I am going on a running trip to the Na9onal Parks in Southern Argen9na and Chile, from where I connect to a kayaking tour of Antarc9ca! No rest on this holiday!
And as an academic? 11

THE ALUMNI COUNCIL AND RELATIONSHIP OFFICE WHAT DO THEY DO?
Alumni council lunch The Melbourne Business School Alumni Council is the peak representa9ve body for MBS alumni. They engage with the school on behalf of alumni and help to communicate the schools programs to alumni. In order to improve the connec9on between the alumni council and students, on the 4th October, members of the Alumni Council held an open lunch with current students. Students were given the opportunity to meet closely with the council board members and ask about their experiences ﬁnding employment aper gradua9ng, and what they as employers, expected from a recruitment perspec9ve. This event aPracted over 50 students. Frances PraP (MBA 2009) will be the key contact person on the Council for student engagement. The SRC is aiming to put together more events that will con9nue to improve the visibility of the alumni network and also bring students to more ac9vi9es where they can interact with alumni.
2010 annual alumni dinner On the same day, more than 500 guests gathered at the Melbourne Conven9on Exhibi9on Centre to celebrate the MBS 2010 Annual Alumni Dinner. The inaugural Charles Goode Ora9on was delivered by Jillian Broadbent AO. If you have any ques9ons in regards to the MBS Alumni Council, please feel free to speak to MBA Alumni Rela9onship manager David Michell at email@example.com.
Meet Robin Dick and David Michell from the alumni relationship office What do you do? Robin: I am the Manager, Annual Fund and Development Services at Melbourne Business School. My principal role is to raise funds for MBS through its Alumni community, student year groups (e.g. class gips), corporate, trusts and founda9ons, and government. Funds raised are typically used to support student Scholarships, internships, prizes, and some9mes infrastructure. Thereaper I am also responsible for donor management, stewardship and recogni9on. It's challenging, but also very rewarding, and it requires you to have a holis9c understanding of the School from a micro and macro perspec9ve. I sit within the Alumni Rela9ons and Advancement team. David: I work as the Manager of Alumni and Community Rela9ons at MBS. What that means is crea9ng and managing the rela9onship that out Alumni have with the school. We have three areas that we focus on. The ﬁrst is lifelong learning, and this involves things like the Personal Wealth Management Series and Alumni Connect Series we are running. The second is thought leadership, which entails geNng speakers either from faculty or elsewhere, to share cuNng edge management and business thinking. The third is networking, which involves 4 Seasons drinks, Dinners, Reunions etc. I work closely with Megan Charles, our Events Manager, to design and put on these events. These are done both locally in Melbourne, but then also domes9cally and interna9onally. Ul9mately, I hope I can help Alumni contribute to the school through sharing their 9me and experience, and at the same 9me help Robin with giving programs. What are the iniJaJves your are hoping to get going? R: Our aim is to develop a culture of 'giving' at MBS that emulates our compe9tors in North America, Europe, and increasingly the Asia Paciﬁc region. This should begin as you enter the School as a student and con9nue aper gradua9on. It is a rela9vely new approach for Australian culture, so it is not without its challenges, however if we aspire to be a top global business school, this is what we need to do. The bePer the School is resourced and performs interna9onally, the bePer it looks on Alumni CVs/ Resumes. 
D: There are further chapters that I hope to launch, in Canberra as well as India and possibly China. We recently concluded a telephone campaign, which aimed to improve the rela9onship between the school and it's alumni, and I am also keen to make our web portal vibrant and useful. I am passionate about helping make the current student experience the best it can be, so that you value the MBS experience, and take part in Alumni ac9vi9es once you leave. We are looking at a mentoring program for Alumni and current students. I am passionate about making the SRC the best representa9ve body it can be (I was in the SRC, including two terms as President). What are our future roles as future alumni -‐ how we can be involved? R: You can be great ambassadors for the School. Help to raise its proﬁle throughout your professionalism, e t h i c a l b e h a v i o u r , c a r e e r development, and of course your networks. MBS is what our students and alumni make it. You can get involved by: joining local Chapters or star9ng new ones; aPending alumni events; establishing class gips; volunteering 9me (e.g. recruitment fairs, Alumni Council etc) and resources (e.g. corporate venues etc); ﬁnancial support (e.g. dona9ons); and feeding back your experiences of MBS. D: I agree with Robin, I hope you will act as great ambassadors for the school. The ul9mate product of MBS is its alumni. You can be involved in Alumni Council, in local and interna9onal chapters, volunteering at MBA fairs, or simply talking to prospec9ve students. Even aPending events is a great way of showing your support -‐ learning doesn't ﬁnish once you graduate! And what is it like to be your own customer? D: I'm very lucky to be able to work on the Alumni program, as I can really try to make it the best program that I would want to be a part of. There's added pressure too, as if I don't do a good job, I am damaging the value of my own degree, let alone everyone elses!

Why women make better marketers than MEN! On Thursday the 14th of October, the Women and Management club hosted an event at MBS; Why Women Make BeTer Marketers Than Men, which was presented by Mark Ritson, Associate Professor of Marke9ng and Brand Management Guru!
t it “To pu have a n , wome dvantage y l t n u l b Mark spoke about the theories behind his ar9cle in Marke9ng netic a rketing: e g e v i s a Magazine, 9tled “Why Women Make BePer Marketers”. The event mas es to m etter m o c t i aPracted around 50 MBS students and members of staﬀ, of both when brains are b genders! Mark presented some key reasons as to why he believes their or it.” f d e n women make bePer marketers than men. These included: the fact g desi Ritson that women have diﬀerent brains to men, and are built for empathy, - Mark therefore are superior for communica9on and emo9onal understanding.
Mark also suggested that women’s brains are bePer for market research, since to be eﬀec9ve at market research, marketers need to be able to use both sides of the brain, i.e. they need to be able to use both qualita9ve and quan9ta9ve research in combina9on. He therefore proposed that the structure of the female brain (a larger corpus callosum connec9ng the lep and right hemispheres) allows women to show a more bilateral representa9on of func9on that integrates the two halves bePer, therefore being able to switch easily between qualita9ve and quan9ta9ve ﬁndings, and see the bigger picture when it comes to market research. The other main factors that were discussed as to what makes women bePer (at marke9ng) than men were that females are bePer at brand posi9oning, due to the problem solving capability of the female brain. Women are more aPuned to the compe99on, due to the larger amount of grey maPer in the female brain compared to the male brain, and that women’s brains age bePer due to 
the problem solving capability of the female brain. Women are more aPuned to the compe99on, due to the larger amount of grey maPer in the female brain compared to the male brain, and that women’s brains age bePer due to increased blood ﬂow to the brain. Finally women don’t talk as much about themselves, and know when to shut up! “Female marketers are more likely to avoid the centre stage and allow the right spokesperson to represent the brand to consumers. It’s an approach most male marketers struggle with.” Mark ended his presenta9on with a philosophical ques9on for the audience to ponder, Is it because women are bePer at it (marke9ng), or because men are bad at it…..? Hopefully it is the former!
