Students interested in buy-side or sell-side finance careers compete for acceptance, then must demonstrate their dedication and commitment through active participation in peer and alumni mentoring, networking opportunities and professional coaching and development. This past summer, 29 CAP participants obtained internships at prestigious firms, including Barclays in Hong Kong, J.P. Morgan in London, UBS in New York, Cowen and Co. in San Francisco, Bank of America and Citi in Houston and Goldman Sachs in Dallas, among many others.

SMU Ties for First in Wells Fargo Case Competition

MBA Marketing Club Visits Frito-Lay Smart Labs

In February, SMU competed against TCU’s Neeley School of Business and Washington University’s Olin School of Business in the Wells Fargo Case Competition. Cox and Olin tied for first place.

This past spring, the MBA Marketing Club toured the Frito-Lay Shopper Marketing Lab, S.M.A.R.T. Learning Center, a 15,000-square-foot simulated supermarket in Dallas that tests the effectiveness of various marketing solutions to drive impulse purchases. Through automated observation and other research methods, the marketer studies the behavior of actual consumers as they shop the aisles and react to different merchandising tactics. Students witnessed firsthand how marketing experts understand the “shopability” of various marketing strategies, gather a deeper understanding of shopper behavior, understand display effectiveness by type and location, and utilize the power of observational techniques.

Global Connections

Global Leadership Program For 12 years, SMU Cox first-year MBA students have traversed the world each May in search of global business and cultural insights. Like the students who went before them, the Cox travelers of 2012 returned from their trips enlightened and excited about new opportunities. The highly successful Cox Global Leadership Program (GLP) is the brainchild of SMU Cox Dean Al Niemi, Jr. and Linda Kao, assistant dean of global programs, and continues to be the highlight of the Cox experience. Unlike many university global programs, the Cox GLP is a mandatory part of the curriculum. Cox global teams commit thousands of hours to connecting with executives around the world, fostering relationships and honing agendas to maximize participants’ exposure and enjoyment. This year, students went to China, Europe, Latin America and East Asia. From Shanghai to Sao Paulo, they visited with dozens of CEOs, government dignitaries and executives at Siemens, Yum! Brands, Deutsche-Boerse, Dell, Volkswagen, PepsiCo, Petrobras, 7-Eleven, Toshiba and others. Of course, another important part of the GLP agenda occurs outside of the offices, where students culturally immerse themselves in the local sites, sounds and tastes of their foreign destinations. Lifetime friendships form and memories are made. Once home, students present their global insights to peers and local executives at the annual Global Leadership Program Symposium. “Before business school, I had done my fair share of globetrotting, but this trip is unlike any other,” said Lauren Basham (MBA ’12). “We met with some of the largest international companies and gained a totally new perspective through hands-on experience as to how business is done globally.” Jacque Kennedy (MBA ’12) added, “Very few schools offer the kind of international experience that SMU Cox offers. Everyone should be so lucky to have the opportunity to travel the world as we did during the Cox MBA program.” SMU Cox thanks our outstanding globally based alumni for their ongoing support and hospitality when our students visit. Our gracious hosts ensure a successful program.

Quotables KTVT, CBS 11

“Many North Texas Real Estate Majors Have Problem to Be Envied” (3/5/2012) Chuck Dannis, adjunct lecturer of real estate, was featured in a TV news story about what Dannis described as a “huge uptick in the demand for our graduates.” The story profiled a real estate major who graduated in May. By March, the student already had three firm job offers and was in the second round of interviews for two other real estate positions. When asked about the number of recent real estate graduates who were still job hunting, Dannis said he didn’t know of a single one. “We are coming off the bottom of maybe the worst real estate depression since the 1930s, so we’re coming into the buy side of the market, and I think it’s going to be this way for the next couple of years,” Dannis said.

“Actual Reality” (4/1/2012) Jerry White, director of the Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship and adjunct lecturer, commented on how consulting for the new trend of “actual reality” games, which is turning a virtual game into reality, can become a successful career. People who play virtual games, explained White, tend to have brand loyalty. “A well-known brand at least gets you a hearing.” Consultants with expertise in these types of ventures will be sought after, according to White. “People buy specialty expertise, they don’t buy generality,” said White. “When they need particular expertise, and they don’t have it in-house, or they can’t learn it themselves, they go looking for it.” Woman’s Day

“Make More Money: Earn bigger bucks by learning what your work is worth” (4/1/2012) Robin Pinkley, professor of management and organizations, encouraged readers

to negotiate for better wages. “Women tend to think their worth is based on what someone’s willing to pay them, while men determine it for themselves,” said Pinkley. Regarding self-employed entrepreneurs, she advised, “Your pricing sends a message to potential buyers, and people will often value your product more if you price higher.” Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“Is Financial Literacy a Threat to Politicians?” (4/5/2012) Dwight Lee, William J. O’Neil Endowed Chair in Global Markets and Freedom, cowrote an opinion piece that was published during National Financial Literacy Month. About half of high school students say they’ve never learned economics in school, Lee wrote. He urged that the “principles of economics and personal finance be taught regularly and rigorously throughout school curricula” in order to “start increasing the number of future voters who can think critically about their financial affairs—and our country’s.” KTTV-TV, Fox11, Los Angeles

“Saving the California Dream” (5/30/2012) Albert W. Niemi, Jr., dean of the Cox School of Business and the Tolleson Chair in Business Leadership, and W. Michael Cox, director of the William J. O’Neil Center for Global Markets and Freedom, were both interviewed for a series of special reports and a half-hour television special that aired on the Los Angeles local Fox affiliate. Niemi explained why so many people are moving to Texas to find work. California is in a state of economic hardship, with 700,000 people having left the state from 2004 to 2008. “California is trying to keep up with the service base of its economy, and the only way to do that is to raise taxes,” said Niemi. “If California raises its taxes, it’s going to be good news for Texas.”

“California’s state budget, the spending, is growing faster than the rest of the nation, whereas Texas is growing slower,” said Cox. Christian Science Monitor

“Heat Wave, Day 2: How are People Seeking Relief ?” (6/21/2012) Bruce Bullock, director of the Maguire Energy Institute, recalled the rolling brownouts that occurred during the extended heat wave of summer 2011 as part of a story about the sweltering temperatures on the East Coast this June. With thermostats nearing 100 degrees, Bullock reminded readers of the importance of turning thermostats up to 78 degrees. “And try not to have two or three power-sucking, widescreen TVs going on at the same time,” he advised. “It’s critical to conserve, especially between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Even in a state like Texas, we did not have the power reserves to cover that brutal heat,” he said.

“Drought Impact on Food Prices” (7/14/2012 , 7/15/2012, 7/18/2012) Bernard “Bud” Weinstein, associate director of the Maguire Energy Institute and an adjunct professor of business economics, commented on the effects of the Midwest’s summer drought that will result in consumers paying more at the grocery store. “There’s no question that higher corn prices are going to increase the grocery bills of most households,” said Weinstein. “It’s going to continue to rise for a couple of months.” Note: This interview originally aired on NBC Nightly News, Weekend Edition; it was repeated on the Today show, with another portion of it airing a few days later on NBC Nightly News’ weekday broadcast.



Catalogues versus Search Engine Advertising on the Internet Associate Professor of Marketing Jacquelyn Thomas

In July 2011, consumers conducted more than 17.1 billion searches via the top five search engine sites. SMU Cox Marketing Professor Jacquelyn Thomas and coauthor Peggy Tseng studied a traditional catalog direct marketer, considered a pure setting for research purposes, to see how effective its offline and online marketing communications were. Thomas and Tseng studied two forms of search engine advertising: paid and unpaid (organic listings that are generated via keyword searches.) The authors found that customers perceive organic listings that they themselves have “directed” as preferable, generating higher-dollar orders when compared to paid or sponsored ads. Thomas notes, “Catalogs and organic listings are the most effective at generating orders that

are of higher-dollar values, in our research context, and organic listings are virtually free. With cost data, one could argue that organic listings are better. Firms might want to push more investment dollars toward search engine optimization or making organic listings more salient.” A clear benefit of search engine advertising to direct marketers is the increased reach to a greater number of “interested” consumers, similar to a highly narrowed, purchased list. But there was also a difference in first-time buyers versus repeat customers. Marketers should focus on the whole customer relationship management spectrum to determine the lifetime value of a customer. The authors suggest that an organic listing is a “soft sell,” yet a paid listing is somewhere between “hard” and “soft” sell.

Predatory or Sunshine Trading? Finance Department Chair and Fabacher Endowed Professor of Alternative Asset Management Kumar Venkataraman

On the surface, the typical investor may understand that holding crude oil exchange-traded fund (ETF) shares is similar to investing in crude oil’s gains and losses. But an underperformance story surrounds these ETFs. Cox Finance Professor Kumar Venkataraman and coauthors demystify the puzzle surrounding the performance of crude oil ETFs. Curiously, the price of oil increased an average of nearly 4 percent yearly between April 2006 and October 2011, and the return of the USO ETF (United States Oil exchange-traded-fund), the largest and oldest oil ETF that is designed to track crude oil prices, was -12.79 percent. The performance of other crude oil ETFs largely mirrors USO. Understanding the investing strategy of the ETF is the key to unlocking the puzzle. Rather than purchasing barrels of crude oil, which would involve substantial storage costs, these ETFs hold positions in New York Mercantile


Exchange (NYMEX) crude oil futures contracts. The futures market price is based on the price at which one could take physical delivery of 1,000 barrels of oil at Cushing, Okla., in a specified month, though delivery is rare. Because these ETFs collectively manage billions of dollars and need to maintain large positions, they typically invest in the most liquid, shortest maturity futures contract. However, because a NYMEX contract expires each month, the strategy involves “rolling” positions on a monthly basis by selling the expiring contract and purchasing contracts with more distant expiration dates, in order to not take physical delivery of many barrels of oil. In 2009 and 2010, popular financial news outlets reported that traders were taking advantage of the pre-announced trades of the oil ETFs, ensuing from the exact knowledge of when they would make their big trades. As the study found, however, the oil market in

The consumer is aware of the sponsored link acting as a firm’s solicitation and its increasing ranking on the search result page. However, because the consumer arrives at the sponsored link from a selfinitiated query, it is not perceived as overtly hard selling the way a catalog is. It is likely that consumer response to search engine advertising is more favorable than a catalog. “Direct marketers should not give up on their direct marketing efforts,” says Thomas. “But they need to manage the amount of resources directed toward catalog efforts versus search engine advertising. They should have a site that is attractive and tailored, and this may prove even more valuable for renewed marketing efforts.” “There is value in the customer coming to you organically via a search engine versus advertising to the customer,” she concludes.

particular is large, deep and resilient. It is also characterized as being very liquid, with liquidity providers and natural counterparties showing up around roll days and competing to get the best prices. Venkataraman and co-authors illustrate that predatory practices are not occurring during the roll period and support the theory that ”sunshine” trading practices are the norm surrounding crude oil ETF rolls. The key to understanding the poor performance of ETF share price as compared to the level of the crude oil price is the futures market term structure. Unlike other commodities, such as wheat, the futures market for crude oil is liquid and resilient. In such markets, the model developed in the study predicts that traders have an incentive to act as counterparties and provide liquidity to the ETF. Venkataraman concludes, “In less liquid markets that are not as resilient as oil, speculators have higher incentives to engage in predatory trading.” Venkataraman and his coauthors plan to analyze these less-liquid markets in future research.

Marriage Stability, Taxation and Aggregate Labor Supply in the U.S. versus Europe Assistant Professor of Finance Indraneel Chakraborty

It’s a fact: Americans work more than Europeans — about 30 percent more. In the 1970s, this was not the case. “The largest contributing factor to the working American dynamic is women,” states Finance Professor Indraneel Chakraborty. More women work in the United States and work longer hours than in the 17 European countries studied. Chakraborty says, “Women are making relatively larger contributions to the workforce and to gross domestic product in the U.S.” People who work accumulate work experience, which leads to higher earnings. Service jobs, or “pink collar” jobs, have also increased in the U.S. Two factors explain nearly 60 percent of this phenomenon— divorce rates and taxes. The study indicates that higher divorce rates in the U.S. are a part of the story that explains 24 percent of the variation in U.S. women working more. A

popular explanation for labor participation differences is higher taxes on labor in Europe. This is more applicable for men than for women, according to the research. During the last 40 years, research reveals a sizeable difference in divorce rates between the U.S. and Europe. The authors hypothesized that more stable marriages provide implicit income and consumption insurance to the spouse who is not the main income earner in the family, thus giving her/him less incentive to accumulate market experience. Taxation also plays an important role in the decision to work. The data shows that Southern European countries have an average tax rate that is very similar to or lower than the U.S.’s, but the hours worked in these countries are notably fewer. However, the effective average tax rate is typically smaller in the Southern European countries, compared to the rest of Europe.

Taxes appear to be more of a factor in the difference in hours worked between the U.S. and Northern or Central European countries. A conclusion is that taxes are a very powerful explanation for male labor supply, while divorce and marriage rates explain female labor supply to a greater extent. In response to changing social norms, American women have moved to ensure their own future by working harder. Given government policies of higher taxation, in response, European men have found it less attractive to work long hours. Chakraborty and his fellow researchers conclude that with Europeans facing challenging economic and political times, perhaps policies related to taxation and women’s workforce participation could serve Europe well.

Bringing Innovation Down to Earth Associate Professors of ITOM Sreekumar Bhaskaran and Karthik Ramachandran

Everybody loves an innovator. Firms that roll out the latest flashy product like smarter smartphones capture our collective imaginations. There is a dark side, however, for the innovating firm, when the operational aspects of new product development are overlooked. SMU Cox Professors Sreekumar Bhaskaran and Karthik Ramachandran, along with a coauthor, study a sometimes overlooked companion to innovation— the operations side that manages new product transitions, replacing the old with the new. On the surface, new product rollouts would appear to be relatively straightforward. They are managed by firms in all segments—consumer goods and technology, industrial products and even services. “This research paper is really about the moving parts and possible mismatches that can arise with new product development in conditions of changing, uncertain technology and competition,” relays Ramachandran. “Building a better mousetrap is fine, but if you want to be a successful innovator you have to be careful in your operations, too,” surmises Ramachandran. “Operations strategy is

increasingly important in this fast-paced era of innovation.” Product managers have to manage the successful introduction of new products, while simultaneously maximizing potential from the product being phased out. Technological uncertainty is a key factor, says Bhaskaran, citing the example of a global manufacturer of cell phones. “Because this firm procures components from many suppliers, they need to make long-term commitments,” explains Bhaskaran. In one particular instance, this manufacturer wanted to procure additional units, but the supplier’s capacity had already been committed elsewhere and a major technology player was shut down. Ramachandran explains, “The cell maker lost flexibility to time the introduction of the new product because the manufacturer was not sufficiently diligent in the operations side of innovation.” Inventory and development flexibility should be used jointly to manage a product

transition. This area has not been addressed in the literature on inventory management or new product development. The authors propose a model that integrates operational decisions with product development decisions. The firm being modeled has to make the inventory decision for a current product while determining when to launch the new product, a decision that depends on its competitive positioning strategy. “The operational side of things should not be ignored when considering innovation,” concludes Bhaskaran. “In reality, you need both operations and innovation capabilities. They feed into each other. The ability to execute an innovation strategy depends critically on the strength of your operational capabilities.”



Fall 2012

ARE YOU READY TO JUMP INTO THE IPO WATERS? There’s no better way to raise growth capital, but going public takes a big effort.



The day of Ignite Restaurant Group’s initial public offering (IPO), CEO Ray Blanchette (EMBA ’04) and his executive team were on hand at the NASDAQ MarketSite office in Times Square.

The single largest challenge for private companies looking to make the leap to the public markets is meeting the auditing, accounting and regulatory requirements of being public.

Ray Blanchette

The team of 15 watched from a conference room as Ignite’s IRG ticker joined the crawl of nearly 3,000 other companies listed on the electronic exchange. The listing on May 11, 2012 seemed like the end of a journey that began years before inside Ignite. Five years earlier, the Houston-based parent company of Joe’s Crab Shack and Brick House Tavern + Tap restaurants hired auditor PricewaterhouseCoopers to begin filing registration statements and ensuring Ignite ran a profitable company. In summer 2011, Ignite began the work of courting investors when it hired its first underwriter and filed its intent to go public. That effort culminated with the company trading 5.8 million shares and raising $83.8 million in its IPO. Exactly one week later—on May 18— another symbol started scrolling across that same video board. It was Facebook’s FB, one of the most highly anticipated IPOs in recent m memory memory, and also one of the most disappoi inting. Although its IPO set a record disappointing. for total shares traded (580 million), its stock price faltered throughout the week. Consequently, the social network’s very public stumble made an already cool IPO market even cooler.

Broadly, global capital markets have seen fewer IPOs in 2012; however, the good news for those companies that dared to venture into the precarious market is that their IPOs are raising far more capital than in years past. According to the M&A intelligence news service mergermarket, deals done in 2010 and 2011 raised, on average, $240 million and $273 million each, respectively. That’s roughly half of the $482 million that IPOs have raised on average so far in 2012. Although entrepreneurs and executives may view an IPO as a pathway to financial reward and validation of their efforts, the work it takes to prepare and the additional work that will follow should give them pause, says Jerry White, director of the Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship at SMU Cox. “IPOs have been perceived as a glamorous and wonderful thing,” White says. “It is primarily a capital-raising mechanism. Is it right for you? You have to weigh the pros and cons.”

How do you prepare for an IPO?

The single largest challenge for private companies looking to make the leap to the public markets is meeting the auditing, accounting and regulatory requirements of being public. To get the accounting right and increase the chance of a smooth and successful IPO, companies should have at least three years of audited financial data that meet the guidelines of the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010. Complying with those rules and regulations is an expensive proposition, even for the simplest of companies, says Wayne Shaw, who holds the Helmut Sohmen Endowed Professorship in Corporate Governance at SMU Cox. Cox alumnus Pablo Mercado (BBA ’98) is vice president of corporate development for Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. Prior to Forum, he worked on numerous IPOs while he was an investment banker at Credit Suisse. Mercado explains that preparing for Fall 2012

an IPO from the company side involves a great deal of behind-the-scenes work above and beyond just developing a great story and compelling marketing plan that investment banks typically focus upon. Many small company owners don’t realize that “going public” is such a lengthy and costly process, requiring incredible amounts of focus and manpower, not to mention capital, just in preparation for the big day. The Ignite team made the trip to New York for the first day of trading straight from its road show—the weeks-long cross-country journey to pitch the company’s prospects to institutional investors, mutual fund managers and other big investors. All the while, the company had to maintain focus on the real business that it manages day to day. Fortunately, Ignite management stayed on task and enjoyed 15 straight quarters of sales growth, further strengthening its case for investors.

What you get with an IPO: money, more money and street cred

To be sure, a public listing generally dwarfs all other methods of capital-raising, says Darius Miller, Caruth Chair in Finance at Cox. “The healthiest way to think about an IPO is as a mechanism to tap the capital markets for growth,” Miller says. An IPO also creates a liquid market for owners and early investors to monetize the value of their ownership stakes, he notes. Mercado’s company, Forum Technologies Inc., raised $260 million in an April 17 initial public offering. Mercado explains that in addition to the initial capital raised, being public opens up the option for a company to raise additional funds in subsequent stock offerings or make acquisitions using stock as currency. For Ignite, the ability to raise capital was the main driver of its offering, Blanchette says. In some instances, an IPO can give a company more credibility with business partners and potential employees, notes William Maxwell, SMU Cox’s Rauscher Chair in Financial Investments and director of the EnCap Investments & LCM Group Alternative Asset Management Center. “There’s a marketing advantage to being

a public company if you’re trying to raise your profile to sell more,” he says. “And it’s easier to attract employees to a public company [because] it opens up how you compensate employees.”

What you give up: control, privacy

For executives considering an IPO, those benefits must be weighed very carefully against what they give up in the transition from private to public, Maxwell says: “Going public comes with the loss of control.” That can be a rude awakening for business owners, says Joe Dannenmaier, a partner at Thompson & Knight law firm in Dallas. “Once you’re public, you’ve got this complement of strangers in your ownership,” he says. Companies aiming to go public must recruit independent boards of directors and disclose details of their operations, accounting methods, risks and potential conflicts, Shaw says. Disclosing details of a company’s operations can be off-putting to the leaders of a private company, but in reality, the most important consumers of those details—the firm’s competitors—already know much of that information, Dannenmaier says.

When’s the right time for an IPO?

It’s not possible to say when a company is the right “size” for an IPO, according to Cox professors, because that varies across industries and company growth projections. Dannenmaier says a company is ready for an IPO when the investment banks start calling, offering to advise on such a transaction. For companies simply looking to raise capital, Maxwell recommends considering getting debt as a private company, because it is so cheap. Shaw echoes that, saying that companies should only consider going public if they can’t get sufficient capital from other sources. Earlier stage companies should first turn to friends, family, angel investors and venture capitalists for their initial lines of outside capital, White says. Even after a company is the right size with credible accounting, disclosures and good advisors, the act of filing and completing an IPO is subject to timing that the company and its advisors just can’t control.

The IPO market has three temperatures: hot, lukewarm and cold, Maxwell notes. And following Facebook’s May 18 IPO, the market temperature appears to be cooling. The very high-profile flop of Facebook’s IPO was reminiscent of the dot-com era when public sentiment and hype trumped rational discussion, Maxwell recalls. “There’s a behavioral craziness that comes on.” Facebook’s IPO also included a high portion of individual investors trading in the stock at the IPO, which turned out to be bad for the investors and the broader markets, Maxwell says. Although Facebook may have added to the chill of the IPO market and discouraged other pre-IPO companies from jumping in, the reality is that much larger economic issues were having a negative impact. The European debt crisis, anemic stock market performance, American health care reform, the fall presidential election and tax system changes were all contributing to faltering consumer and investor confidence. When the market becomes more inviting, companies should be ready to move. Mercado, who helped oilfield services company Complete Production Services to a $624 million IPO in 2006, says investment bankers advise their clients to hurry up and wait. “The more you can do to be ready, it’s to your advantage,” he says. “You have to be ready because the market can be open at times, and closed at times.” Fortunately, for Ignite, its timing was good and the market appeared to be open. So what’s next for Ignite? With its IPO funding, the company plans to add 11 stores this year to the 122 Joe’s Crab Shack and 16 Brick House restaurants it currently operates. It will also use a portion of the capital to pay down debt. And even though May 11 was a day to celebrate, Blanchette wanted his people to know that it wasn’t the end of their journey— or their hard work. After the morning IPO ceremony, Ignite’s team conducted a handful of news interviews and was on a plane back to Houston that afternoon. Blanchette recalls, “I remember being in a conference room at NASDAQ and saying to the team, ‘This is not the end. This is a new beginning.’”

How to make networking work for you.


Raymond Mimick earned his EMBA from the Cox School of Business in 2010, but even today, he never misses an opportunity to attend events with other alumni.

The Economist ranks SMU Cox No. 25 in the world for potential to network and alumni effectiveness, and it’s a ranking that is welldeserved, says Kevin Knox, assistant dean of external affairs and head of the Cox Alumni Association.


“I like to stay connected to the school. I know I can ask [other alumni] about things going on in our business, and they’ll give me feedback,” he says. In addition to frequently attending alumni events, Mimick still maintains contact with his 2009 “buddy”—a second-year student assigned to a first-year MBA as a mentor—which he says has been helpful to gain candid feedback as his career advances. “I even met my old study group for dinner last week,” he says. “We try to stay in touch, and it is great to get together in person so we can catch up, see where everyone is and help each other out if we can.” That connection is part of the allure of Cox School of Business, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed beyond the school’s campus. The Economist ranks SMU Cox No. 25 in the world for potential to network and alumni effectiveness, and it’s a ranking that is well-deserved, says Kevin Knox, assistant dean of external affairs and head of the Cox Alumni Association. “People who have gone to Cox will always make themselves available for students and other alumni,” Knox says. “When I talk to people in the field, they are always asking, ‘How can I help the students?’ It’s a mindset that starts at the top, and having the alumni association really helps. It creates a network that now has 40,000 people — and all of them are willing to help each other.” Knowing that they’re fellow alumni gives immediate caché to someone who is looking for anything from industry information to employment. “I have never heard of one alum getting in touch with another and being told, ‘I don’t have time for you,’” Knox says. “That’s just not the way we’re built.” Part of that powerful connection comes through alumni events, which are frequent and varied and allow ample opportunity for Cox grads to interact. Although they are designed for fun, they serve a greater purpose of building friendships and business relationships. “All you have to do is just show up, and you have access to this incredible network,” Knox says. “I have students ask me all the

time, ‘How do I tap into the network?’ and I tell them, all you need to do is show up. It’s that simple.”

Alumni making an impact

The results cannot be denied. SMU alumni are leaders in both their professions and their communities, serving as key business and civic leaders. Their touch is felt on numerous Fortune 500 companies and includes many C-level executives. Along with current students and school spending, alumni contribute to the $7 billion financial impact that SMU has on the regional economy each year, according to the recently published SMU impact study. “Anyone who graduates from Cox and doesn’t take advantage of the opportunity to network with other alums is making a huge mistake,” Knox says. “If they don’t take time to get out there, somewhere, doing something and meeting these people, they’ll be lost. It’s all about building relationships, so when you need somebody, they’re there. All you have to do is call your friends.” Bob Beaudine That’s the premise (BBA ‘77) behind the book, The Power of Who: You Already Know Everyone You Need to Know, by Bob Beaudine (BBA ’77). A Cox alum and member of its associate board, Beaudine rethinks networking and explains that it’s not about finding new resources; it’s about better utilizing the ones you already have. “We’ve gone in the wrong direction,” he says. “People don’t see their friends and family as resources. They don’t want to ask friends for help, so they go out and try to meet strangers and ask them; then they wonder why it isn’t working. Why would someone who doesn’t know you want to help you? “True networking is done with friends, and friends are the ones who will open the door that gives you the chance to show favor,” Beaudine says. In fact, he notes 87 percent of all jobs are placed by a friend. With 16 million people looking for work, he says the odds of even getting in the door for an interview are dismal without the help of a friend or family member. And Beaudine says the fact that Fall 2012

70 percent of college students aren’t getting hired illustrates his point that sending out résumés to strangers is simply a waste of time. “You can’t get in if you’re not known,” he says. Cox students and alumni who utilize their available resources will find opportunities that can open every door they’ve ever dreamed of walking through. Beaudine points to “an amazing faculty” that has contact with the country’s top CEOs and other business leaders, but students who fail to make a connection or create a relationship with faculty will miss out on the advice and access they are so willing to provide. “People at SMU have unbelievable family and friends. They come from good stock, and they know amazing people,” he points out. “The whole concept of networking is to create access. In reality, we need to stop ‘networking’ and start connecting.”

Connection Points

In his book, Beaudine identifies the different spheres of influence in every person’s life, beginning with an “inner circle” of 12 close friends, then extending to “Who friends,” allies, advocates, acquaintances and, finally, fans. Making and maintaining those different alliances requires knowing the right way to connect. Fortunately, the Cox School recognizes the importance of networking and offers professional counseling and instruction to every Cox student. Dennis Grindle, director of the Career Management Center, partners with Diane Brouillard, Cox career coach, to teach a 12-hour course that trains students how to create their 30-second elevator pitch. Grindle and Brouillard also coach students how to talk with others, whether they might be in a job interview or at a social event. The class reminds students that networking isn’t just about a lot of superficial introductions. “It’s a womb-totomb lifelong process, and it’s not how many people you know but how well you know them,” says Grindle.

Four key points for successful networking:

Be loose. “People are stiff and don’t know what to say,” Knox says. Remember, this is a conversation. Relax and have fun with it. Be soft. Part of making business connections sometimes means not being too business-like. “Don’t ask for a meeting; ask if you can visit with someone. Ask for advice or direction; ask someone how they did something. People love being able to share advice. You just have to ask!”

Be aware of what you’re saying. This is where practice comes in. Know what you want to say, and then practice it until it feels natural. Every person has a certain message they want to convey; know what yours is. Make yourself unique. Always share one thing about yourself that will make a lasting impression. Perhaps it’s something you’ve accomplished, such as driving a dogsled team. Or it could be as simple as being from a unique location or having an unusual hobby. “You want to be at least a little bit unique from everyone else,” Knox says, “because that’s what will make you stand out in someone’s mind.” For more, please turn to the inside back cover in this CoxToday to learn how alumni can become informed, involved and invested.

Alumni events allow ample opportunity for Cox grads to interact. Although they are designed for fun, they serve a greater purpose of building friendships and business relationships.




MU Unbridled: The Second Century Campaign is the largest fundraising initiative in SMU’s history, with an announced goal of raising $750 million by 2015. Thanks to the generosity of SMU alumni, parents and friends, the campaign has raised more than 80 percent of the total with three years left to complete the goal. Scholarships and student support, faculty and academic excellence and the campus experience are at the heart of this campaign, and these areas will define SMU’s second century. Annual alumni giving participation—no matter 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 May 2, 2012 SMU made significant progress toward its three campaign goals. Please visit to view updated quarterly status reports. To learn more about how your gift can continue this momentum, please contact the Cox Development Office at 214.768.3074.

MBA Military Enrollment and Scholarship Support on the Rise

uring recent years, the number of current and former members of the U.S. Armed Forces enrolled at SMU’s Cox School of Business has grown significantly, as more active duty and military veterans seek the value that an MBA experience brings to the transition between a successful military career and a successful business career. Marci Armstrong, associate dean of Graduate Programs, states, “These students want two things from an MBA program: an exceptional business education and a forum in which tactical military expertise can evolve into strategic business leadership skills. Cox is committed to their development. The characteristics, such as leadership skills, strategic vision and ethics, that these students refined while in the military are the same qualities that will make them exceptional leaders in the private sector.” Each year, the Full-Time, Professional and Executive MBA programs at SMU Cox accept outstanding candidates from a variety of military backgrounds. As it is for all prospective students, the ability to find funding for tuition is an important factor in the decision to enroll. As the population of military MBA applicants has increased at SMU, so has the need for scholarships that bridge the gap between federal reimbursement programs and the cost of tuition. Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control is one of several generous donors that recognized this need. James F. Berry, president, says, “As Americans we are all forever indebted to the men and women of the U.S. Military. In any way we can express that indebtedness, it is our moral obligation to do so. Providing scholarship funds to further the education of those who have served our great nation is one small way for our company to show its gratitude.” David B. Miller (BBA ’72, MBA ’73), managing partner at EnCap Investments, L.P., and his wife Carolyn had a similar response to this growing need. Miller says, “I have few regrets, but one is that I did not serve in the military. I also hearken back, as others in my generation do, to the disdainful treatment members of our armed services received when they returned from Vietnam. So I guess the net result of that for me is a strong desire to find a way to express my gratitude and deepest respect to the young men and women who have put themselves in harm’s way to protect and defend not only us but what this

great country is about. Carolyn’s and my support of the Cox MBA Military Scholarship program has been an excellent avenue through which we can do that, and we are Dean Al Niemi, Jr. receives a commemorative flag flown in his honor in Afghanistan from most pleased to current and ex-military MBA students. be involved.” Milledge “Mitch” A. Hart, III, chairman, and Linda W. Hart (’65), vice chairman and CEO, of Hart Group, Inc. were immediately drawn to the opportunity to support former military students. A veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, Mr. Hart states, “I very much appreciate what these men and women have done by serving our country and fighting our wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Linda and I made this scholarship gift as a way to express our appreciation and hope that it will ease their transition into the business world.” Charles Leary (MBA ’12), production engineer at Hunt Oil Co. in North Dakota and former U.S. Naval officer, received one of these scholarships last year. “The tremendous generosity of donors to SMU veterans has a significant impact on the lives of the men and women who served our country in the armed forces. These scholarships help ease the transition from the military to civilian life—we recipients are forever grateful to our fellow patriots.” For more information about supporting the scholarship fund for military students or other initiatives at SMU Cox, please contact the Cox Development Office at 214.768.3074.

The Life of an Endowment



t SMU Cox, we remain forever indebted to our supporters. Without them, we would never have attained the level of success and national reputation enjoyed today. Our donors are responsible not only for our ability to attract internationally acclaimed professors, but they also enable us to offer scholarships to gifted students who might otherwise never have attended SMU. As a result, the diversity and strength of our student body continues to improve year after year. When a donor funds an endowment, SMU ensures that the gift is invested and protected so it continues to provide immense benefit in perpetuity. In the words of SMU Cox Dean Al Niemi, Jr., “Great universities became that way because they hired and retained outstanding faculty who then taught exceptional students. Our donors and supporters are instrumental in our relentless pursuit of excellence. We can never thank them enough.” Few donor efforts have been as longstanding and prolific at SMU as those by Leo Corrigan, Sr. and his family. In 1912, Leo Corrigan, Sr. came to Dallas with $10 in his pocket. Sixty years later, he was known as “the country’s biggest landlord” with hotels and apartment buildings spanning from coast-to-coast. The New York Times reported that he even tried several times to buy the Empire State Building.


He was also a generous philanthropist who believed in the power of education even though he never went beyond grammar school. In 1974, Leo Sr. established the Clara R. and Leo F. Corrigan Sr. Endowed Professorship in Real Estate. The endowment still thrives today via Professor William B. Brueggeman, chair of the Real Estate Department. He teaches courses in economics, finance, real estate finance, real estate and urban land economics/development and corporate finance – benefitting the same industry in which his chair’s namesake staked his claim and began a family tradition of giving back. In 1977, the Corrigan family legacy of generosity continued when Leo Sr.’s son, Leo Corrigan, Jr., (’48) established an endowment known as the Marilyn R. and Leo F. Corrigan, Jr. Endowed Professorship. This endowment was instrumental in supporting and retaining tenured professors at Cox who had national reputations of excellence. In 1990, again the Corrigans

expanded their impact on education by extending their endowment to junior faculty, via annual fellowships, and student scholarships. For almost 50 years, the Corrigan family—several of whom have attended SMU (Mary Corrigan Livingston ’00 and Leo F. Corrigan IV ’00)—has had tremendous impact on SMU and the Cox School. Their triumphs in business are legendary, but they are equally known for how they shared their success with others in the community by being civic leaders, industry mentors and philanthropists. In May 2011, Leo Corrigan, Jr. was inducted into the North Texas Commercial Association of Realtors’ Hall of Fame. His sons, David and Leo Corrigan, accepted the honor on his behalf. As quoted in the Dallas Business Journal, David said, “This area has been so generous to our family, and it has meant so much to us as a company; my father believes—we all believe—that it is our responsibility to give back. You don’t take from your community and then give back in other places. The old adage about leaving someplace better than you found it pretty much describes our mentality. It is our responsibility to reinvest in an area that has given so much to us.” SMU Cox is forever grateful that the Corrigan family calls SMU and Dallas “home.”
