Global Leadership Program

Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Longitudes For over a decade, SMU Cox Dean Al Niemi, Jr. and Linda Kao, assistant dean of global programs, have delivered one of the most comprehensive global leadership programs offered by leading business schools. For the eleventh straight year, Cox firstyear MBA students took to the skies in May and scattered throughout the hemispheres in search of global knowledge and hands-on international experience with some of the world’s most dynamic companies and their leaders. In 2011, students chose from five trips: Asia (two different itineraries covered BeijingSeoul-Shanghai and Ho Chi Minh City-Hong Kong-Shenzhen-Shanghai), South America (Sao Paulo-Rio de Janeiro-Buenos Aires), Europe (Frankfurt-Bratislava-London) and India (Bangalore-Delhi-Mumbai). Typically, each group met with 10 to 12 different companies to experience global innovation and leadership first hand. CEOs and other executive leaders from a variety of companies, such as Goldman Sachs, Caterpillar, Alcatel-Lucent, Frito-Lay, Ernst & Young, Samsung, Deutsche Boerse, Walmart, Kingfisher, Yum! Brands and Petrobras provided unique perspectives on how to manage business on a global basis. “By taking the education I received in my first year and utilizing it in a foreign country, I strongly feel that this trip is the best part of the MBA curriculum,” student Tony Simpson said. Fellow MBA student Roberto Flores added, “It’s true what we were told. The GLP is a trip that will change us for the rest of our lives. We may forget what we learn in the classroom, but the GLP experience will last forever.”

“Despite Tensions Over Gulf Spill, BP Will be Back” Bruce Bullock, director of the Maguire Energy Institute, was among the energy experts interviewed shortly before the first anniversary of the worst oil spill in U.S. history. While British Petroleum is still the biggest operator in the Gulf, Bullock speculated that there might be added focus on BP’s applications. “It’s conceivable they’ll place some additional scrutiny and take a bit longer to look at that permit than some others given their history,” he said.

“Sports: Bias in the Strike Zone” Research done by Johan Sulaeman, assistant professor of finance, along with three partners, was featured in the “Week in Ideas” column, after also being featured in the columnist’s “Ideas Market” blog. The research, which has implications on measures of wage discrimination, found that “when a major league home-plate umpire is of the same race or ethnicity as the pitcher, he’s more likely to call strikes, unless he knows his work is being analyzed. On the other hand, pitchers facing an umpire of a different ethnicity altered their pitches, which “implies they weren’t expecting getting the benefit of the doubt.”

D CEO (May/June 2011)

“Executive Assistance” Bobby Lyle, chairman of the SMU Cox Associate Board and founder of Lyco Holdings Inc., explained how the idea originated for the Associate Board Executive Mentor Program, which pairs MBA students with mentors from the Dallas-area business community. Although other universities have attempted to imitate it, not one has yet been successful. “Whenever it has been tried it just hasn’t worked out,” said Lyle. “There’s something about Dallas that makes it work.” CBS 11 News (7/1/11)

“Stores Changing Coupon Policies” Dan Howard, marketing professor, estimated that 20 percent of coupons are redeemed fraudulently by what he called “consumer thieves” in a report about a major retailer’s modifications to its coupon policy. Howard said, “It’s essentially stealing on the part of consumers. What they do is they bring in coupons and attempt to buy products for which they know, in advance, the coupon was not intended.”

Fox Business Network (7/15/11)

“Would You Give Up the Internet for One Million Dollars?” W. Michael Cox, director of the William J. O’Neil Center for Global Markets and Freedom, addressed the provocative question, “Would You Give Up the Internet for One Million Dollars?” on an Internet video produced by the Fund for American Studies. Fox Business’s “Freedom Watch with Judge Napolitano” pursued the same topic with Cox. “You can get a computer for less than $1,000 and get online for a few pennies, and have something you can do for $500 that is worth $10 million to you,” he said. “That shows the gap between worth and cost that markets routinely deliver to us.” The Dallas Morning News (7/23/11)

“Program at SMU Encourages Hispanic Business Leaders” Frank Lloyd, associate dean of executive education, gave an update on the National Hispanic Corporate Council’s Executive Development Program at SMU Cox. The program was created in 2010 to address the small number of Hispanics in senior-level

executive positions at U.S. corporations. “Already, half of its 15 graduates have been promoted or given serious consideration for a high-level promotion,” said Lloyd. “Companies need better access to the rapidly growing Hispanic marketplace and demographic.” The Wall Street Journal (8/12/11)

“Judgment Call: Appraisals Weigh Down Housing Sales” William Maxwell, finance professor and endowed chair, explained why he believes that weak housing appraisals are “driving down the real estate market.” In a front page article that explored the possible downward bias in appraisals since the housing bust, Maxwell recounted his own experience with the appraisal of the home he was trying to sell. The buyer’s lender appraised it for $60,000 less than what it had been appraised for during mortgage refinancing a few months earlier. Maxwell, who is appealing his home’s valuation, said the appraisal process “borders on buffoonery.” The New York Times (8/15/11)

“In Texas Jobs Boom, Crediting a Leader, or Luck” Bernard “Bud ” Weinstein, associate director of the Maguire Energy Institute and an adjunct professor, was among several experts interviewed in an article examining the Texas economy after Governor Rick Perry announced his candidacy for president. With the state’s economy growing about twice as fast as the national rate, the article explored whether it has been due to luck or exceptional leadership. “He’s been lucky,” said Weinstein. “Obviously, neither the governor nor public policy in Texas has pushed oil prices up, and clearly the technological innovation has created a whole new industry in Texas.”



Lessons from the Ballpark: Oversight Reduces Bias Assistant Professor of Finance Johan Sulaeman

When umpires were monitored, they showed less bias in how they called strikes along ethnic lines, even over-compensating in the opposite direction of their original bias. “People’s behavior changes when monitored,” concludes Professor Johan Sulaeman, after an exhaustive study capturing data from Major League Baseball. The lessons learned about oversight have implications for numerous workplace settings, he believes. The study captured the effects of a camera system, QuesTec, which was installed in one-third of baseball parks around the country to monitor umpire’s ball and strike calls. Since the study was first done, all ballparks now have camera systems. The impact of all ballparks being monitored has greatly reduced the subjective bias of umpires. “This research has a lot of implications for corporations, particularly with respect to monitoring,” says Sulaeman. The study, analyzing over 3.5 million pitches between 2004-2008, gets to the heart of labor market dynamics and discrimination, or subjective bias. One

insight gleaned is that “discrimination is price-sensitive, and making it more costly reduces its expression.” Additionally, knowing that one is subject to a biased evaluation makes the “worker” (the pitcher in this case) alter behavior to minimize impact. Sulaeman says an important part of the story is that this camera system changed behavior dramatically. He acknowledges that in the workplace, because of privacy issues, monitoring must be done in a situational-appropriate manner. “Subjective monitoring may be better in the workplace though,” he suggests. For example, a manager can observe whether customers appear happy when they leave. A car dealer can call the new purchaser for a post-purchase follow-up for feedback.

The authors say their analysis regarding discrimination should be encouraging. They suggest that the more the decision of the evaluated (the umpire in this case) is important and they themselves are being evaluated, the bias tends to drop away. Sulaeman states, “In our study, those being evaluated showed bias in the opposite direction of their original bias, meaning they are over-compensating for their bias.” “Strike Three: Discrimination, Incentives, and Evaluation,” by Johan Sulaeman of SMU Cox, Christopher Parsons of University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Michael Yates of Auburn University, and Daniel S. Hamermesh of University of Texas at Austin, is forthcoming in the American Economic Review.

Greener Growth for China Distinguished Professor of Finance Andrew Chen

Estimates show that China will consume 24 percent of the world’s total energy budget over the period 20052030. If China’s economic development is to continue in a sustainable manner, its government policies will have to make provision for private investors in key industries. Two such areas are water and energy infrastructure—crucial focal points, which interact with climatechange policies important for sustainable development. While cooperative approaches between government and the private sector are necessary, global capital markets can vet infrastructure projects and technologies to finance green infrastructure. A modern approach, based on “market finance,” can raise the capital required for green infrastructure


projects without creating undesirable consequences. For example, to meet electricity demand, China will need $2.76 trillion in infrastructure development by 2030. In forthcoming research in The Chinese Economy, Professor Andrew Chen of SMU Cox and co-author Jennifer Warren look at China’s voracious electricity demand and the kind of infrastructure development needed to support it for the next two decades. Their research indicates that

China needs to become more energy efficient to increase its standard of living while rationalizing finite resources, and must also address rising carbon emissions. China’s energy infrastructure choices matter even more to the world’s ecosystem and global economy. Infrastructure challenges also need to be considered when assessing resource usage of the future and the modifications needed to balance energy demand and environment, indicate Chen and Warren. “Sustainable Growth for China: When Capital Markets and Green Infrastructure Combine” by Distinguished Finance Professor Andrew Chen with co-author and SMU consultant Jennifer Warren is in the Sept/Oct issue of The Chinese Economy journal.

Energy Matters: Shocks, Energy Math, and OPEC Professor of Finance and Cary M. Maguire Chair of Oil and Gas Management James Smith

Energy security is an elusive concept and ideal. You can’t get there, however, without a thorough understanding about energy supply, demand and pricing. Some refer to energy security in regards to domestic policy obstructions, clean energy ambitions, or threats to the oil supply from Middle East instability. Energy security can also mean diversification of the energy slate, with recent boons from natural gas adding to the energy portfolio mix. Energy economist James Smith recently presented research to energy economists and foreign policy aficionados in Stockholm, Sweden and at a Dallas Committee on Foreign Relations energy panel. Smith drilled into recent oil shocks and OPEC’s role in energy markets. Shocks, such as Libya’s supply disruptions, add volatility to prices, and predictably so. OPEC is the least-cost producer with the most potential resources to develop. Smith says OPEC chooses to leave those resources

undeveloped because, once developed, OPEC members would be tempted by the extra capacity to produce at ever higher rates—even beyond their assigned quotas, which would undermine OPEC’s high-price strategy. Smith adds that the high price level favored by OPEC does encourage other (non-OPEC) producers to develop additional production capacity, but that’s the lesser of two evils since the efforts of non-OPEC producers are held in check by the relatively high costs they face. Iraq will play an increasingly important role both within and outside of an OPEC context. Iraq’s supply coming online has the potential to lower oil prices significantly while forcing other OPEC members to rein in their own production says Smith. Smith’s research puts to rest the idea that speculators are to blame for high oil prices. He states that volatility in oil prices is inherent. Fundamentals drive the market

for supply, demand and prices. Professor Smith’s “Oil Shocks and OPEC” analysis was presented June 21 in Stockholm, Sweden to the International Association for Energy Economics annual conference and DCFR on June 29 as noted above. His updated work is based on the paper “World Oil: Market or Mayhem?” in Journal of Economic Perspectives, September 2009.

How Health Care Benefits Really Impact Employment Choices Professor and Bobby B. Lyle Chair of Entrepreneurship Maria Minniti

Social commentators and policy makers argue that many people are “locked” into their current jobs for fear of losing their health coverage. Though they could be more productive in self-employment, they stick to full-time employment for benefits. With the passage of the recent Obama Care reforms, Nancy Pelosi suggested that the legislation would “unleash tremendous entrepreneurial power into the economy.” New findings in research by Professor Maria Minniti and Yunwei Gai of Babson College rethink facts and fiction about employment choices and health care. The authors’ research shows that the choice of employment with health benefits over self-employment is based more on family and individual circumstance and risk tolerance. “It’s important because our research takes us beyond the popular belief that people are locked into jobs because of health care,” says Minniti. “When it comes to making employment decisions, according to our research, we seem to take our health for granted.” Over 70 percent of U.S. wage earners,

age 18-64, and their families are covered by employer-provided health insurance, according to the 2007 Census Bureau. Employer-provided health insurance and the presumed “job-lock” have given rise to debates and legislation, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1997. “Our results indicate that there is an effect of choosing employment based on health benefits only for a subgroup of people,” Minniti explains. “These are family level decisions, thus one has to consider the family structure. If you have high health care bills, are pregnant, or have a

sick child, health care benefits are a big part of your employment decisions. If that’s not the case, however, people seem to discount the value of health care very significantly and choose what they want to do for work, meaning taking on a variety of risks, including that of not having health insurance.” The authors analyzed nine years (20002008) of Medical Expenditure Panel Survey data to determine the impact of employerprovided health insurance on employment choice. Although health insurance has a long-run effect on whether one remains selfemployed, it may not have a strong impact on one’s initial decision to start a business. Employment choice and self-employment choices have to be evaluated using the family as a decisional unit, and the attitude of individuals toward risk emerges as an important element of the puzzle, according to the study. The paper “Employer-provided health insurance and long-term employment choice” by Entrepreneurship Chair Maria Minniti of SMU Cox and co-author, Yunwei Gai, was presented at the 2011 AEA meeting.

worked at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine, she was just a child when the meltdown occurred in April 1986. “We moved during the mass evacuations, but my parents continued working there,” Carter recalls. “They took turns helping run the three reactors that still worked. I saw firsthand that power was incredibly important for economic growth.” RELATED STORIES: • MAGUIRE ENERGY INSTITUTE’S RESEARCH-DRIVEN INFLUENCE (PAGE 24) • MORE ABOUT THE CARY M. MAGUIRE CHAIR IN OIL AND GAS MANAGEMENT (PAGE 30)

That experience shaped her future in ways no one could have predicted. She spent a year in the U.S. as an exchange student during high school, and that experience heightened her interest in both the American education system and its economics. After majoring in math and economics at Birmingham Southern College in Alabama, she began working at the Federal Reserve in Dallas. That led her to pursue an MBA at SMU’s Cox School of Business, and she was working toward that degree when the Maguire Energy Institute launched its lecture series. Carter immediately recognized that the focus on energy fit perfectly with her career path. “I realized that energy would always play a key role in economic growth. It takes energy to produce and deliver goods and services, and to continually improve our living standards.” Julia Carter (PMBA ‘08)


“I realized that energy would always play a key role in economic growth. It takes energy to produce and deliver goods and services, and to continually improve our living standards,” she says. Today, as a financial advisor at ExxonMobil, Carter (PMBA ’08) credits her education at SMU Cox as instrumental to advancing her career. In July, after several years in Dallas and Houston, she began an assignment in Nigeria, where she will work on funding some of the projects that ExxonMobil has started there. “There is a vast need for energy in today’s world, and many countries are trying to develop diverse sources of energy,” she says. “With changes in technology and access to resources, it is important to stay on top of developments in the industry and government policies.” Carter, like many SMU Cox students, has forged a path into a rapidly changing industry, in which SMU Cox excels at student preparation. The school has positioned itself as a trailblazer in the area of energy finance, creating an innovative program to prepare students for careers in the industry. Two years ago, SMU Cox began offering an MBA specialization in energy finance, one of only a handful of universities nationwide with such a program. “We see this specialization as a major attractor for students,” says Dr. James L. Smith, Cary M. Maguire Chair in Oil & Gas Management at SMU Cox and editor of The Energy Journal for the International Association for Energy Economics. “Students who are thinking about a career in the

energy industry are looking for business schools to get this kind of expertise, and there just isn’t much out there.” He said the University of Texas at Austin offers a similar program, as does the University of Houston. “But that’s it for Texas,” he says. “And around the rest of the country, this is rare indeed. There aren’t many programs we’re competing with.” That places the SMU Cox program in a unique and enviable leadership position. Smith cites two major reasons as the driving force behind renewed interest in energy finance education: volatility of the market and passage of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. “There are many new changes in the regulation of the market and trading practices, so we’re having to re-educate even the people who knew how this worked a year ago,” Smith says. “The rules of the game haven’t changed much for a long time, but now they are. There’s a real need to be able to learn what that means.”

Focus on Energy Finance

The curriculum targets the details behind the economics of energy: a course on energy project financing focuses on how to raise money for projects along with the types of challenges— and solutions—that may accompany it. A risk management course exposes students to how futures, options and swaps work and explores how they are traded and how to access the associated risks.

Fall 2011

“They use hands-on tools in real-life situations and get their hands dirty doing the kind of exercises you would do if you were in that work environment,” Smith says. “The typical finance student won’t have either of those experiences. That is going to make [our students] more attractive to employers.” Students also are encouraged to take an oil and gas law course through the SMU Dedman School of Law to learn legal fundamentals of writing leases, trading mineral rights, and protecting the investment. In addition, students can network with guest speakers from the energy industry who come to recruit students as well as impart their knowledge. “We’ve placed students with ExxonMobil, Shell, Pioneer, and with power companies. Some go into private equity; others are entrepreneurial enough to start their own venture. There are lots of career paths open to them,” adds Smith. The energy finance specialization is a collaboration between the finance department and the Maguire Energy Institute, which sponsors programs to help prepare students for careers in the energy industry. Jon Mueller, who graduated in May 2011 with concentrations in Finance, Strategy & Entrepreneurship, and Energy Finance, says the opportunities provided by the school strengthened his interest in energy and his resolve to work in that field. He took full advantage of offerings that included traveling twice to Houston to meet with industry leaders, attending the first World Shale Gas Conference earlier this year at the Gaylord Texan Hotel and Convention Center, and participating in Natural Gas Nation, a collaborative event by the Maguire Energy Institute and the George W. Bush Institute. “All of the world’s industry relies on energy,” says Mueller, now a research director of Capital Alliance Corporation. “It’s very important for all business people to have an understanding of where the vast majority of their energy comes from, now and in the future. At an investment bank, it’s important to understand the macro environment in

which our clients operate. Understanding how to mitigate the risks that come along with operating in a world of highly volatile commodity prices gives me an edge.” Leaders at SMU Cox recognize the value of the energy finance specialization and hope to expand it in 2012. Bruce Bullock, director of the Maguire Energy Institute, says SMU Cox is also working on an undergraduate specialization. “We are looking at broadening the opportunities to learn more about the energy market,” he says. “Our objective is, if you come out with a BBA in any business discipline, that you have a good understanding of the energy industry, either through course work, enrichment activities or both.” And, as the market evolves and expands to include alternative forms of energy, SMU Cox can further distinguish itself from other schools. “It offers us opportunities…we have a diverse group of people who want to teach this. We’ll be able to offer more [educational] opportunities in the power generation area. We’ll have the ability to shift the mix in the coursework as the energy mix shifts going forward,” says Bullock. As the curriculum changes with the industry, the Maguire Energy Institute is poised to lead the way, thanks in part to being located in the heart of the state’s oil and gas enterprises, Smith says. “I think you’re going to see more programs like this, but because of the concentration of local employers, it will grow faster here than in [other areas],” he says. “I think we’ll stay at the cutting edge of this and continue to grow out the curriculum a little more.” Julia Carter sees this education as one that is imperative for the future of both domestic and international economics as energy needs continue to grow. “Through lectures and student meetings with industry leaders, SMU Cox and the Maguire Energy Institute provide an excellent setting for sharing ideas and understanding the intricacies of developing scarce resources around the world.”

Energy’s New Demands The Maguire Energy Institute at SMU Cox is serving the industry with innovative research and a program designed to meet the sector’s tough challenges. BY MARK STUERTZ

These are volatile times in the energy industry.

High levels of uncertainty accompany fluctuating growth and market rearrangement, exposing stark financing issues. According to an April 2011 risk analysis by Gerson Lehrman Group, energy sector risk levels have risen significantly and are expected to deteriorate further. As economists and industry leaders search for solutions, the Maguire Energy Institute at the SMU Cox School of Business is addressing these and influencing policy makers by conducting research. Initially funded by Cary M. Maguire, president of Maguire Oil Company, the institute is equally committed to preparing students for energy careers. “The energy industry in general has traditionally had to manage three kinds of risk,” says Bruce Bullock, director of the Maguire Energy Institute. “One is geologic risk. Two is political risk. And the third is economic or financial risk.” Although some geologic and political factors can’t be predicted, financial risk management will assume profound significance over the ensuing decades,


providing companies with the greatest opportunity to lower energy risk factors. With this industry transformation under way, the demand for energy finance professionals is more critical than ever, explains Bullock, who comes to Maguire with extensive public policy and public affairs experience with energy firms such as FMC Technologies, Inc. and the Atlantic Richfield Company.

Powerful Precision Tools

“There are a lot more financial tools available to companies these days than were available just ten years ago,” Bullock says. “And companies are much more sophisticated in their ability to manage risk.” A few of these tools include futures, options and derivatives. And managing these tools in transforming markets is challenging. According to The Economist, investments in wind fell more than 40 percent between 2009 and 2010 as wind project financiers such as Lehman Brothers collapsed in the 2008 global economic meltdown. The weakening position of European banks due to the continent’s sovereign debt crisis is also exerting pressure on the energy sector. U.S. energy firms rely heavily on European banks, according to Energy


Intelligence Finance, an energy industry newsletter, especially in the exploration and production sectors. The rapid reshaping and heightening prominence of energy economics is creating rich opportunities for aspiring business professionals. The need for energy sector financial expertise is acute, and demand will only accelerate with the sweeping reforms imposed by the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Signed into law by President Obama in July 2010, many of the act’s provisions have yet to be written, compounding energy sector financial uncertainty.

A Void of Skilled Strategists

In addition to regulation changes and complex finance structures, an aging workforce and the growing need for financial specialists are creating a shortage of energy executives. “There’s a need across the board in the whole sector,” says Dr. James L. Smith, Cary

M. Maguire Chair in Oil & Gas Management at SMU Cox. “What I see now is a shortage of people with an expertise in derivatives. Even before the Dodd-Frank reforms, few were well versed in how derivatives work. This is one of the scarcest talents and this scarcity is going to be even more critical because it’s such a large part of the market.” A financial instrument whose value depends on underlying variables, a derivative is a contract whose payoff depends on the behavior of a benchmark. It can include futures, options and swaps, plus other tradable assets such as a stock or commodity. Derivatives are commonly used to protect producer capital investments should commodity prices fall, generating stable cash flows in volatile markets. For example, when a company undertakes a major project, such as a power plant or an oil platform, sophisticated financial models gauge rates of return. Part of that evaluation includes a sensitivity analysis: What happens if prices fall? What happens if prices spike? These tools help firms hedge these risks.

“Even before the Dodd-Frank reforms, few were well versed in how derivatives work. This is one of the scarcest talents and this scarcity is going to be even more critical because it’s such a large part of the market.”

Spring Fall 2008 2011

WHAT TO EXPECT BY 2030 Understanding the demands of the energy industry includes looking at future growth: — Energy demand will increase 35 percent — Natural gas will be the fastest growing source of energy — Electricity demand could surge by more than 80 percent — Wind, solar and biofuel energy utilization will rise sharply (10 percent annually), but renewables will remain a scant 2.5 percent of the total global energy portfolio Source: ExxonMobil Energy Outlook, January 2011

Thus, the demand for skilled financial strategists throughout the energy sector is acute. “Clearly the energy sector is hiring,” Smith says. “It has an aging workforce. Because of slumping energy prices, these firms were not hiring throughout the 1990s. So if you’re a young person in an energy company, you can move up pretty fast because there is a void in middle and upper management.” Finance specialization students can also find lucrative opportunities in private equity funds focused on the energy sector or in energy consuming industries. Energy consumers exposed to pricing volatility use these same sophisticated financial instruments to hedge energy pricing risk. Airlines, railroads, utilities and trucking companies make use of these tools to stabilize cash flows. Example: Southwest Airlines has been able to maintain consistent profitability throughout the highs and lows of the airline business by stabilizing the price it pays for fuel—minimizing uncertainty through hedging. “They’ve been much more aggressive,” says Bullock, who also blogs for the Houston Chronicle. “Any time you take a hedge, someone else is taking the other side of the hedge. And Southwest’s models have forecasted better than anybody else’s.”

Maguire’s Industry Impact

In the wake of costly financial reform and regulation implemented in the U.S. over the last several years, energy capital markets have gradually shifted to overseas exchanges. Is the U.S. gradually surrendering its leadership role? “I don’t think energy traders are losing a whole lot of sleep over it,” says Bullock. “I think they would like to see it stay in the U.S. simply because it’s traditionally been a good place to do business. It’s

director of the Maguire Energy Institute and an adjunct professor of Business Economics at SMU Cox. Because that report was sent to every member of Congress and it was the subject of a Congressional hearing, Weinstein believes it influenced the Obama administration’s retraction of the moratorium several months before it expired. The institute’s mission to educate and inform remains equally paramount.

In addition to speaking to policymakers and influential industry leaders, the research and leadership of the Maguire Energy Institute have the potential to impact policy. “We did a study showing that the drilling moratorium not only had a significant negative impact on U.S. oil production, it was having a devastating impact on the economies of the Gulf Coast states,” says Bernard “Bud” Weinstein, associate

“We have the opportunity to train the next generation of skilled strategists,” says Weinstein. “[The U.S. has] tremendous potential to increase energy production, make ourselves less dependent on imported energy sources, and at the same time create jobs in an economy with very high unemployment. You would think that message would resonate. Let’s hope that, thanks to future leaders from institutions like Maguire and SMU Cox, it eventually does.”

LEADING OTHERS: Interpersonal Relationships, Enacted Culture


human resources executive at a Fortune 500 natural gas company, acclaimed for world-class environmental and sustainable energy solutions, recently bemoaned his firm’s inability to interest talented students in employment opportunities with his firm – even during the softest recruiting year in memory. His explanation: Students believe the oil and gas industry is broken. And no wonder. Words and actions of opinion leaders in media, government, academia and even business make it appear that the industry is focused solely on money and profits for shareholders without regard for the environment or the communities in which it

does business. For example, accounts of the 2010 Macondo oil spill in well-read business publications indicted the entire offshore drilling industry, along with BP’s approach to managing safety and risk. Similarly, journalists and politicians publicly question the effects of transforming densely settled urban and suburban areas into “heavy industrial sites” to produce natural gas, saying that contamination and pollution result in unacceptable health risks

that demand restriction through taxation and regulation. To counter these perceptions, industry spokespeople point out that technology has enabled the energy industry to meet the rising worldwide demand for fuel, power generation and petrochemical feedstock with expanded supplies; more efficient extraction, production and distribution methods; and lower emissions. They speak about research results that show that offshore industry professionals have extremely high job satisfaction scores. These rebuttals have not been effective in stemming the tide of negative perceptions about the industry, however. The truth? It is a mixed bag. There are many strong, effective and ethical leaders Fall 2011

“Expanding access to modern energy will be essential to meeting global targets for reducing poverty and hunger and improving health and education.”

in the oil and gas industry who are highly motivated to bring discipline and purpose to the forefront in both practice and perception. However, there are other companies that are just coming around to this viewpoint, and yet others that are lagging. The entire industry needs to more swiftly develop new paradigm leaders or risk that the laggards’ actions will continue to serve as a drag on the industry’s reputation.

A new leadership paradigm

So what does the industry need to do to change the perception that it is broken, establish trust with customers and attract a new generation of employees? A very good start would be to embrace a new type of leadership that rewrites the broken script that has left certain companies unable to adapt to the leadership demands of the 21st century. This new leadership model provides a different framework for the industry to address its challenges, one founded on the pillars of purpose, ethics and value for multiple stakeholders. The new paradigm demands an expanded set of leadership capabilities at all levels in oil and gas firms. • Purpose. New paradigm leaders articulate the organization’s larger purpose and focus on organizational, rather than individual, success; • Ethics. New paradigm leaders communicate truthfully and with transparency, maintain relationships based on reliability and reciprocity – in a word, trust – and stand up for their beliefs while providing channels for others to constructively address conflicts between stated and enacted values in the organization; and • Multiple stakeholders. New paradigm leaders recognize the organization’s multiple stakeholders; they strive to align their interests and get them moving in the same direction. This new thinking is already underway. Rex Tillerson, ExxonMobil’s chairman and CEO, articulates key elements of the new paradigm in ExxonMobil’s 2010 Outlook for Energy. “Demand for energy is tied to the

human desire for a better life,” Tillerson writes. “By enabling people to become more productive – and expanding their opportunities – access to reliable, affordable energy can transform people’s lives and the communities in which they live. Energy also plays a key role in advancing social progress. “Expanding access to modern energy will be essential to meeting global targets for reducing poverty and hunger and improving health and education.” It is this kind of purpose put into motion that must guide actions and yield results. Purpose serves as a motivator for employees and a compass for the long-term direction of the company. Of necessity, energy firms have long been among the most engaged within communities and the political entities with whom they operate. As the complex global industry matured in the 1960s beyond the founding generations of explorers, successive industry challenges made it difficult to embrace leadership behaviors beyond those focused on production, efficiency and profits. New paradigm leadership is a way to regain behaviors needed to gain trust and respect from a wide range of stakeholders: communities, customers, prospective employees, and opinion leaders in politics, education and journalism.

Big payoff

The payoff for the energy industry to develop new paradigm leaders is potentially huge. New paradigm leadership can attract the best investors. A 2007 University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business study found that 30 companies that managed to optimize stakeholder value rather than shareholder value outperformed the S&P 500 at three-, five-, and 10-year intervals up to 700 percent. In Built to Last, Jim Collins and Jerry Porras show that organizations driven by purpose outperformed the general market 15:1 and outperformed comparison companies 6:1. New paradigm leadership also can attract the best customers. The Edelman Trust Barometer shows customers take positive action based on their trust in a company, including 84 percent recommending it to friends and colleagues and 77 percent paying

more for its products and services. Research also shows trust and integrity of leadership are key factors that move employees to higher engagement, bringing about greater customer loyalty, employee retention, productivity, quality and safety. 2010 data from the Ethics Resource Center show that employees respond to an ethical culture with improved loyalty and willingness to go the extra mile. Organizations with strong ethical values experience less misconduct, more frequent reporting of misbehavior and less retaliation on the job. The biggest payoff for a new leadership paradigm in the energy industry could be its effect on new talent. Meeting the global demand for reliable and affordable sources of energy produced responsibly requires new technologies and enormous investments. As a result, the industry’s workforce will become increasingly skilled and sophisticated. At the same time, the industry faces an exodus of experienced employees as the baby boom generation retires. Attracting and retaining new skilled talent, therefore, is mission-critical. If the industry were better known for its new paradigm – its larger purposes, its ability to align the interests of multiple stakeholders and its ethical climate – it would do better in attracting and retaining talented young people, especially those of the Millennial Generation who wish to do well by doing good.

Talent pool

Based on the behavior of students at the Cox School attending undergraduate, graduate and executive development programs, energy holds a lot of appeal as an industry because of its potential purpose. Student interest in these programs is growing, and the school is adding programs to meet the demand. However, many energy companies have a way to go in terms of moving from an interesting opportunity to a preferred employer or even an esteemed employer such as a Southwest Airlines, Apple Computer or GE. An energy industry guided by new paradigm leadership can attract the best talent, best customers and best investors, and thus face a bright future.


The Life of An Endowment



he legacy of Cary Maguire, president and CEO of Maguire Oil Company, runs deep through the corridors of SMU. For years, his generous gifts have enabled our university to hire several renowned faculty while establishing new centers of excellence in ethics, and oil and gas. Maguire marked his commitment to his industry’s education when he provided initial funding to establish the Maguire Energy Institute in 1975. The Institute encourages the study of management, marketing and policy issues related to the energy industry via lectures, forums, seminars and other programs. Years later, Maguire endowed a faculty chair in oil and gas management at SMU Cox. This faculty position would help drive the vision and curriculum to support and influence the changing world of energy. So when Maguire invited James “Jim” L. Smith, Ph.D. to dine with him at the Petroleum Club (naturally), Smith was intrigued by the proposition as well as the location. “Dallas is an energy town,” explained the finance professor from the University of Houston. But Maguire won him over. “Maguire made many things possible,” said Smith, who hails from the University of Illinois and earned his M.A. and Ph.D. from Harvard University. Since accepting the role, Smith has actively updated, enhanced and guided the curriculum for energy and finance. A sought-after speaker, his recent research has focused on debunking the myth of peak oil, assessing the potential of developing Iraqi fields and the financial impact of commodity speculation. Today’s Cox MBA students who pursue a finance concentration with a specialization in energy finance directly benefit from Smith’s expertise and hands-on approach. “The program is more than theory, we teach real tools. There’s a lot of industry interest in mitigating risk, controlling volatility, hedging, futures trading,” he explained. Given the shortage of this valuable knowledge, coupled with the fact that most senior energy management is approaching retirement, “you can move into responsible roles quickly; there’s room to grow,” said Smith.


Brian Ungarean recognized this opportunity. After graduating from the Cox BBA program in 2002, he went to work for a brokerage house and started making contacts in the energy industry until he realized that to truly get into a decision-making role, he would need to get his MBA. He considered other grad schools besides his alma mater, but a generous scholarship changed all that. “With SMU’s oil and gas center, and

Dallas being a vibrant, major hub of S&P 500 companies, I would have been crazy not to go back,” he said. With determination, and goal-setting guidance from Cox’s Jerry White, Ungarean threw himself into his studies while also working mornings at a financial consulting firm and pursuing the first levels of his CFA. “Once I had focus, I knew what I had to do – one, start a hedge fund and two, drill my first well before I graduated.” His goals may have seemed overly ambitious, but with Professor Smith’s help, Ungarean pursued an atypical entrepreneurial internship with Colt Ventures. “It was too good to be true!” Ungarean said. “He was working deals while he was still in school,” Smith added “As a result, he could apply what he learned in grad school real-time.” Consequently, Ungarean not only graduated from the Cox MBA program with a full-time job offer in hand, but he also had his first two career goals underway: completing a capital raise with Colt Ventures and equity in his first oil well—drilled within two weeks of graduation in May 2011. Thanks to the generosity of benefactors such as Cary Maguire, scholarship donors who entice outstanding students to attend Cox, and the expert faculty guidance provided by esteemed professors like Jim Smith, many more highly motivated students like Brian Ungarean will leverage the Cox School’s areas of expertise to achieve ambitious goals, no matter how lofty they seem. With a focused goal and a little help, all things are possible for Cox students.

Dean Niemi, Duncan Niederauer and Marty Flanagan

MU Cox School of Business and NYSE Euronext (NYX) have quite a few things in common including longevity, and a fervent passion for investing in the future. Thus, SMU Cox was the perfect venue for the kickoff of NYSE Insights — an executive speakers series featuring NYX’s senior management, members at various college campuses and local business organizations. The day started with a visit by Duncan Niederauer, NYSE Euronext CEO, and Cox alumnus Marty Flanagan, president & CEO, Invesco (NYSE: IVZ), to a Cox portfolio practicum class. The visit set the tone for the rest of the day, aligning with what NYSE Insights is all about: putting students in direct contact with the minds behind today’s business movers and game-changers for a dynamic learning exchange. Following a public panel with local NYSE CEOs, at exactly 3 p.m., SMU President R. Gerald Turner, Dean Niemi, visiting executives, and hundreds of Cox students closed the trading day by ringing the closing bell, remotely, which was broadcast online and around the world.





MU Unbridled: The Second Century Campaign is the largest fundraising initiative in SMU’s history with a goal to raise $750 million by 2015. Thanks to the generosity of SMU alumni, parents and friends, the campaign has raised more than half of that total goal in less than two years after the launch of its public phase. Scholarships and student support, faculty and academic excellence and the campus experience are at the heart of this campaign as these areas will define SMU’s second century. Annual alumni giving participation—regardless of the amount—is equally defining for SMU, which is why two of the goals for this campaign revolve around increasing alumni involvement on an annual basis, in perpetuity. SMU and the Cox School of Business thank all who have participated in or plan to contribute to this campaign. As of the end of last fiscal year, May 31, 2011, SMU made significant progress toward its three campaign goals. To learn more about how your gift can continue our momentum, please contact the Cox Development Office at 214.768.3074.

Alumni Profile: Ashley McClellan The SMU Cox School of Business is proud to call Ashley McClellan (BBA ’04) one of our own. Just seven years after graduation, McClellan, a Cox Alumni Board member, has set the health care industry ablaze with her accomplishments and accolades. McClellan, vice president and chief operating officer at Medical Center of Lewisville, a 202-bed, 850-employee facility, was named among the Dallas Business Journal’s 2011 Top 40 Under 40 business professionals, and received the Dallas/Fort Worth Hospital Council’s 2011 Young Health Care Executive of the Year award. In the midst of her professional success, McClellan remains humble saying, “My connection to SMU opened so many doors for me. If it weren’t for my SMU network, I wouldn’t be where I am today.” As an SMU student, McClellan obtained degrees in Finance and Spanish and landed a Spanish interpreter position at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (TSRHC) in Dallas the summer before her senior year. McClellan then earned two master’s degrees from Texas Woman’s University, a Master of Hospital Administration and an MBA, before entering a one-year residency at TSRHC. She was then accepted into the Hospital Corporation of America’s (HCA) Chief Operating Officer Development Program at a medical facility in her hometown of Overland Park, KS. During her stint in Kansas, McClellan reengaged with Cox at an alumni reception where she interacted with Cox School Dean Al Niemi and Kevin Knox, associate dean of external relations and executive director of the Cox Alumni Association, as well as prospective students and their parents. “I felt a strong connection to Cox and wanted to represent the school publicly. Kevin invited me to serve as a Kansas City representative on the Cox Alumni Board.” She also went on to serve on SMU’s Young Alumni Board. Now McClellan says, “There is no way I would be in my

current role if it weren’t for SMU. I feel responsible to give back and provide the same experience for current students. As an alumna, it is rewarding to see the rising caliber of students and the progress of SMU.” McClellan also gives back by encouraging others to give. “All alumni should give no matter the amount. It demonstrates support which improves our academic rankings. Alumni support elevates the university and the value of our SMU degree. It’s the right thing to do.” The Cox School of Business is appreciative of McClellan’s generous support and leadership on the Cox Alumni Board. In addition to her demanding professional life, McClellan is the wife of Brett McClellan and the mother of their two year-old son, Brooks.



SMU’s First Centennial Faculty Chair Position Created at Cox Dean Albert Niemi, Leah Fullinwider, Jerome M. “Jerry” Fullinwider, SMU Trustee Sarah Fullinwider Perot, Jerome M. Fullinwider Endowed Centennial Chair Robert A. Lawson, Ph.D., Former SMU Trustee Ross Perot, Jr.


Fall 2011



gift from SMU Trustee Sarah Fullinwider Perot (’83) and former Trustee Ross Perot, Jr., in conjunction with a gift from Jerome M. “Jerry” Fullinwider (BBA ’51) and Leah Fullinwider, has established the first endowed centennial chair commemorating the anniversary of SMU’s founding and opening. The contribution created the Jerome M. Fullinwider Endowed Centennial Chair in Economic Freedom—in honor of Mrs. Perot’s father—in the William J. O’Neil Center for Global Markets and Freedom in the Cox School of Business. Jerome “Jerry” M. Fullinwider received a BBA degree from SMU in 1951 and is a 1953 graduate of the U.S. Naval School of Justice in Newport, RI. Following graduation, he served with the U.S. Navy in Korea and China. “My father has pursued his interest in free enterprise and expansion of global business relationships throughout his business career,” said Sarah Perot. “When he told us of his commitment to the O’Neil Center at the Cox School of Business, Ross and I decided that an endowed faculty chair in his name would be a fitting way for us to recognize his achievements and to ensure the permanence of his interest long into the future.” On May 4, 2011, Mr. and Mrs. Perot surprised Mr. Fullinwider with the announcement that the faculty position would be SMU’s first centennial chair. “This gift supports one of the top priorities of SMU’s Second Century Campaign and the university’s strategic plan—increasing the number of faculty positions that are endowed,” said SMU President R. Gerald Turner. “We are deeply grateful for the generosity and foresight of the Perot and Fullinwider families for leading the way in establishing this centennial chair.” The Board of Trustees has established new centennial endowments for faculty positions and scholarships created during the university’s centennial commemoration period, from January 1, 2011, through December 31, 2015. These giving opportunities provide permanent funding, as well as operational funds to initiate the position or scholarship on an expedited basis.

The combined total of both gifts from the Perot and Fullinwider families was $2 million for the centennial chair. The gift supports SMU’s goal to increase the number of endowed faculty positions to 100. Thus far, The Second Century Campaign has made possible an increase from 62 such positions to 83, leaving 17 to reach the goal of 100. The operational portion of this gift enabled the O’Neil Center to immediately hire an extraordinarily talented individual into this newly created faculty position. Robert A. Lawson, Ph.D. began his role as the Jerome M. Fullinwider Chair in Economic Freedom this fall. Prior to SMU Cox, he was an associate professor in the “We are deeply Department of Finance at grateful for the Auburn University, and he is generosity and co-author of the widely-cited foresight of Economic Freedom of the the Perot and World annual reports, which Fullinwider provide an economic freedom families for leading the way index for over 140 countries. The O’Neil Center for in establishing Global Markets and Freedom this centennial was established in 2008 by chair.” William J. O’Neil (BBA ’55) and his wife, Fay C. O’Neil (’55), to study the impact of competitive market forces on freedom and prosperity in the global economy. The center offers education and training on the importance of globalization in changing the business environment. “The investment by the Perot and Fullinwider families to establish this new centennial chair has enabled us to add a distinguished faculty member, Robert Lawson, to the O’Neil Center,” said Dean Albert W. Niemi, Jr. “This new faculty position provides us with the opportunity to expand our research program and enrich the classroom experiences for our students.” For more information about the O’Neil Center, please visit or call 214.768.3251.
