SMU-in-China: Business Program Launched this July for Cox BBAs This July, the Cox Global Programs office launched the first SMUin-China: Business program at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). SMU-in-China: Business is a four-week residential program that introduces SMU Cox undergraduate students to China’s contemporary economic, political and business environment. The program focuses on business management in the context of Chinese culture and values, providing students with a new perspective to understand cross-cultural management and the impact of China’s emerging economy. The program is comprised of classroom lectures with leading faculty members from CUHK’s Asia-Pacific Institute of Business and company visits to top corporations in Hong Kong and mainland China. Aside from having ample time to explore Hong Kong’s most valued sights like Victoria Peak, Lantau Island, Happy Valley’s race course and the famous Symphony of Lights, the students also traveled to the mainland Chinese province of Guangzhou to visit local companies and network with students from the local university. Many students also extended their stay in China to visit Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’an and Shenzhen. Next year the SMU-in-China: Business program also will include
a cultural component. China’s rich history and culture will offer an interdisciplinary curriculum allowing students to immerse themselves in the people, culture and history of China. It also will include a four-day study tour to Xi’an, an ancient capital city in western mainland China, and a one-day study tour to the historical city of Macau, formerly a Portuguese colony.

Global Leadership Program
GLP: 2010 Every May more than 100 first-year full-time MBA students take the trip of a lifetime. This year was no different. Through Icelandic ash clouds, Indian heat waves and a European debt crisis, the Cox Global Leadership Program traveled to the far corners of the world. In Asia, Europe and India, students gained first-hand knowledge of what it’s really like to conduct business in a global economy. And they learned from the very best. CEOs, entrepreneurs, equity firm partners and top government officials graciously hosted our students at the headquarters of international companies such as Roche, GE, Credit Suisse, Toshiba and IBM. For more than a decade, SMU Cox has been one of the few business schools to require global immersion as part of the MBA curriculum. The annual two-week journey requires ample preparation by students, faculty and staff. The Cox Global Leadership Program team, directed by Assistant Dean Linda Kao, personally connects with business leaders around the world who provide students with rare insiders’ views into their companies’ global operations. A typical GLP itinerary includes three countries within a given region and personal visits to a dozen companies. In their downtime, students eagerly tour the world’s most famous sites and wonders such as the Great Wall of China, the Taj Mahal, Westminster Abbey and renowned museums. And, of course, they find plenty of cultural immersion in the cities’ restaurants and nightlife. The GLP is a life-changing experience for the students. They come home enlightened, confident and enthusiastic about international opportunities just in time to start their summer internships.
SMU Cox offers global immersion as part of the Professional MBA and Executive MBA programs as well. Learn more at www.coxgrad.com. www.cox.smu.edu

“Move to Texas and Get a Free BMW” W. Michael Cox, director of the Cox School’s O’Neil Center for Global Markets and Freedom, offered a compelling reason to head to the Lone Star State. “Move to Texas and get a free BMW!” he said, based on statistics that professionals living in the Northeast and California pay the equivalent of a year’s worth of car payments in annual personal income tax, which Texas doesn’t have. This is one explanation why “every six years Dallas adds a million people,” Cox said. The New York Times (4/25/2010)
“New Yorkers Earn More, Early On, a Study Shows” Bernard “Bud” Weinstein, adjunct professor and associate director of the Maguire Energy Institute, commented on a recent study revealing the long-term earning potential of New Yorkers. The study found that men with college degrees make more money in New York City than in other major metropolitan cities, until they reach their late 30s, at which point the gap closes. “The New York metro area is always sucking people in and spitting them out,” said Weinstein. “I’ve watched this cycle of all these kids moving to New York and 10 years later moving back to Dallas. You discover that you can find employment in Dallas or Atlanta at a roughly comparable salary, but in real terms it’s a boost because the cost of living is much lower.” The Wall Street Journal (5/4/2010)

“Banning BP Will Increase Imports” Adjunct Professor and Associate Director of the Maguire Energy Institute, Bud Weinstein, wrote a letter to the editor that raised questions about the consequences of banning BP. “A banning of BP could potentially be harmful for the United States,” he said. If BP is unable to secure future offshore lease auctions, it “will simply accelerate the out-migration of drilling platforms to other locations, furthering the economic misery of Gulf coast residents and increasing America’s dependence on imported energy,” said Weinstein.

Seven of the 20 major markets are still dealing with decline in home values.

On Being an Avatar: The Virtual World Second Life Associate Professor of ITOM Ulrike Schultze
Even before the Na’vi and the U.S. Armed Forces battled it out in the movie “Avatar,” Internet users found themselves identifying with pseudonymns of themselves, or who they’d like to be in the form of an avatar. Professor Ulrike Schultze’s new research delves into the fundamentals of the avatarself relationship through studying residents of Second Life, the most successful and accessible virtual world. Virtual worlds like Second Life are a rich, dynamic environment to study, according to Schultze. But businesses and educational institutions are still trying to figure out how to use them. At one point, IBM was heavily invested in Second Life; they even held team meetings for their globally distributed employees. Schultze says that many businesses defected from Second Life in 2007-08, unable to get the “pull-through that would translate into sales in the real world.” Some see these worlds as simply 3D web advertising or technology for technology’s sake. But Schultze sees much more.
“In real life many of us are not comfortable with role playing,” Schultze observes. “Avatars help with role playing. Having an avatar provides the confidence to try things out you wouldn’t in real life,” her study participants report. A person could be a clothes designer in Second Life, and can then apply those lessons in the real world. Participants report that their social awareness is more acute, too. “This learning environment is important for business,” Schultze adds. “We overlook the opportunities to let the environment create memories, which can happen in Second Life.” For example, a firm held a meeting in a fantastic Frank Lloyd Wright building to leave employees with a unique, memorable experience. In Second Life, the opportunities are vast, with no physical, social or resource constraints. “Creative opportunities are afforded that real life might not, such as
reciting poetry at a reading or becoming a real estate mogul. The study finds that many see their avatar as their truer self, with no limits, stereotypes or physical limitations. “By posing as another, people are more willing to make mistakes,” she observes. “By pushing into the role of avatar in Second Life, one also pulls out experiences. This roleplaying is meaningful.” It’s one big simulation — a big dress rehearsal. Best-paper nominee “The Avatar-Self Relationship: Enacting Presence in Second Life” with Ph.D. student Matthew Leahy was presented at the 30th International Conference on Information Systems. Since then, Schultze has been interviewed in The Wall Street Journal and in her avatar form on a virtual set in Second Life.
Pricing Strategies: Waste-Averse Consumers Pay Up Assistant Professor of ITOM Sreekumar Bhaskaran
What type of pricing strategy does Apple seem to know well with its iPods, iPads and iPhones? Many would call it premium pricing, but there’s more to the story. In new research, Professor Sreekumar Bhaskaran shows that products having “add-ons” should command a higher price when consumers are waste-averse. When you buy the $499 iPad, the $14.99 book download isn’t so painful, so psychology and economics would say. Bhaskaran describes the base product (iPad) and its add-ons (apps) as contingent products — the app is purchased only when the iPad base product also is purchased. Such product pairs show up with cell phones, laptops, hotels and their internet service offerings, cars and their servicings, and other co-dependent pairs ad infinitum. Selling add-ons is appealing to firms for
good reasons. Not only does selling addons allow firms to acquire an additional revenue stream, the practice also enables them to maintain contact with existing customers, which may translate into sales of future products. The presence of waste aversion among consumers adds a new wrinkle to this codependency problem. “If a firm increases the base price of a product, purchasers are more likely to buy the add-on,” Bhaskaran says. “There is a very similar effect in project management research. Managers don’t want to waste effort and money. The concept of waste aversion
in a consumer context is novel, however. Waste aversion is something firms need to consider in their product development and pricing strategies, according to Bhaskaran. In regards to purchase, “Firms should increase the price of the base product to encourage the add-on purchase, even if fewer buy the base product. The economics favor this approach.” The research would say that Apple’s positioning with relatively high-cost iPods, iPads and iPhones and their addons—skins, touch-screen plastic shields and, of course, the apps—helps keep the value of the base product intact. “The high-quality product with its add-on allows for a continuing conversation with consumers,” Bhaskaran states. The paper “Selling Base Products and Add-ons to Waste-averse Consumers” with Sanjiv Erat is under review. Fall 2010
CRM 2.0: High-Definition Business Strategies Associate Professor of Marketing Jacquelyn Thomas
Some academics have heralded Customer Relationship Management (CRM) to be the new marketing paradigm. Others see it as a fad. “CRM systems got a bad rap because firms either did not know how to use them or did not use them to their full capacity,” notes Jacquelyn Thomas. She suggests that firms can devise a simple and inexpensive CRM-type system. “Look at your current transaction database, determine the financial value of customer segments and see what emerges from it to address customer needs.” CRM creates the most value when it is geared toward the firm’s business strategies, according to new research by Thomas and colleagues. CRM embodies the key idea of firms, viewing customers as assets and managing them to maximize their value across their lifecycles. CRM can affect future marketing decisions, such as communication, price, distribution and brand differentiation.
For example, many hotel chains are able to flexibly manage their room pricing based on previously collected customer data. CRM can be thought of as an organizational capability, the authors say. It’s a source of advantage that permits businesses to become unique. While CRM still applies to the operations side, it also involves learning about the customer’s role in the delivery process of a product or service offering to better facilitate exchange. “You want to more cost-effectively get your product from point A to B,” she adds. “So, integrate CRM into both marketing and operations.” The study analyzed the responses from a sample of business executives spanning 10 industries—from energy supply and forestry to pharmaceuticals and apparel. In observation of CRM practices, Thomas
says energy firms studied their customers and asked them what was important when buying gasoline. To better understand their customers’ needs, they had to use CRM to compete, she suggests. Innovations such as paying at the pump, and paying even faster with a Speedpass, were the results of CRM initiatives. “From the research, we learned that many managers view CRM in isolation and not within other strategic contexts,” Thomas sums up. “CRM enhances other strategies; it is not an either/or proposition.” “Customer Relationship Management and Firm Performance: The Mediating Role of Business Strategy” with Oliver Schilke and Martin Reimann is forthcoming in Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science.
Regulation Change Forces Foreign Firms into U.S. Financial Market Caruth Chair and Finance Professor Darius Miller
In spite of an attempt to make U.S. financial markets more attractive for foreign firms, a new Securities and Exchange Commission deregulation effort has had the opposite effect. Now, one of the most historically rare types of cross-listing is the most prevalent, courtesy of depositary banks creating unsponsored American deposit receipts (ADRs). New research by Professor Darius Miller and co-authors reveals that a majority of foreign firms are now trading on over-the-counter (OTC) markets rather than
major exchanges, to their detriment. In 2005-06, New York Stock Exchange watchers began noticing the trend of foreign firm listings moving to the relatively unregulated London market rather than New York. One change to deregulate disclosure requirements, amended Rule 12g3-2(b), has caused a worrying trend of foreign firms being listed here involuntarily. These foreign firms are now being traded in the U.S.’s OTC markets, without their approval or even knowledge. This was not the intent of the amendment. The net effect of this deregulation has been the destruction of $23 billion in firm value. And U.S. depositary banks (and investors) have benefited at the expense of foreign firms. Miller says, “It was designed to reduce the paperwork to list in the OTC market and therefore make the U.S. market more attractive. But the first order effect was that depositary banks used the loopholes in the deregulation to cross-list
hundreds of firms that didn’t want to be cross-listed.” Unwittingly, foreign firms trading in the U.S. through an unsponsored ADR program are liable under state and federal securities legislation, leaving them at-risk of class action lawsuits In the decade before the amendment, there were a total of 69 unsponsored programs created; six months following the amendment, 748 new unsponsored ADR programs were created. The loophole allowing the creation of unsponsored ADR programs resulted in a large positive wealth gain to these financial institutions. “The amendment was good for the U.S. investor but not necessarily the foreign firms,” Miller states. “Some firms are trying to distance themselves through language on their websites, but they are in a bind. If they try to leave the U.S., there are negative consequences in terms of valuation and reputation. So they almost have to become sponsored and pay the bank fees.” The paper “Uninvited U.S. Investors? Economic Consequences of Involuntary Cross-listings” with Peter Iliev and Lukas Roth is under review.

Four On the Move Cox taught these entrepreneurs invaluable lessons. Now, others are learning from their leadership By Dave Moore
usiness leadership comes in many forms. Few leaders, however, are as fearless as the entrepreneur, an inherent risk taker willing to shake up a boardroom or revolutionize an entire industry. Yet it takes more than courage and raw ambition to compete in a global marketplace. In order to propel substantial change, professional development is a lifelong endeavor. For 90 years, the SMU Cox School of Business has prepared generations of visionaries with first-in-class programs and resources, from the Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship to executive mentoring programs and leadership development centers for undergraduate and graduate business students.
Such collaborative learning fosters a community of entrepreneurship and news-making talent. The broad range of personalities who have been a part of the Cox community include Kroger CEO David Dillon, TOMS Shoes founder Blake Mycoskie, Aquila Inc. CEO and President Richard C. Green, and CityCraft founder Callie Works-Leary, who was named to Inc. magazine’s Top 30 Under 30 list for 2010. Four more entrepreneurs to watch are these individuals who comprise a wide range of industries and expertise. Some started with street-smart intuition or a passionate tenacity. All believe in the importance of building up their employees and communities. And they also share another common thread—they all chose Cox to help them get there.
Albert C. Black, Jr. Founder and CEO On-Target Supplies & Logistics
Albert C. Black, Jr. remembers trucks rolling through the South Dallas housing project where he lived, observing as free lunches were handed to his friends. Though he was only six, Black refused to get in line. “Children ought not be taught to get something free,” Black (EMBA ’95) recalls. Always determined to forge his own path, by age 10, he put his entrepreneurial spirit into action by launching a lawncare business. Unlike his competitors, he told customers to name their price. Hard work and determination pushed him forward. Years later, he founded and operated On-Target in 1982, even as he worked a night job. His logistics company grew by leaps and bounds, but by the 1990s, he wanted to broaden his base of knowledge and grow his company more strategically. Black selected the Cox MBA program to do so. “We believed there were some serious systems and control matters,” says Black,
who knew enough to realize what he didn’t know. Before he entered Cox, Black concedes, many decisions were made on a more intuitive basis. The survival of On-Target through the recession is a testament to the effectiveness of what he’s learned at Cox, Black says. The key, he says, is that the curriculum taught him to identify valuable employees to bring aboard—those who can help his business thrive. “The real test of a company’s success comes when you can withstand the successful days and manage through the most difficult days,” Black says. By earning the goodwill of both employees and customers, On-Target has managed to retain both, he says. “You need to navigate through the economy when it’s cloudy and foggy. You may pull over, but it doesn’t mean you’ve stopped. It means you’ve paused. You need to find the clear road and take that one.” Given that philosophy, it’s easy to see why Black is a star continuing to rise, perhaps even to political office. Longtime Dallas political insiders say Black has all the makings of a Dallas mayor—something he hasn’t ruled out. For now, Black says, he’s interested in expanding his company’s ventures. As On-Target increases its inventory tracking services throughout the nation, the company’s professional development service continues to grow as well. Appropriately titled ReadyToWork, this division supplies staffing and job training to clients in 22 cities across the country. “These are exciting times,” Black says.
Lisbeth McNabb Founder/President W2Wlink
Entrepreneur Lisbeth McNabb (MBA ’88) has spent more than 25 years with Fortune 500 companies, but the newest wave she’s making is through her own webbased venture. Realizing that women may not always receive the resources to advance to the executive level, she launched W2Wlink, a social networking site to help female professionals get to the top, only faster. W2Wlink’s recent collaboration with Dallas-based ClubCorp to honor women advancing to top executive positions has met with great success at events in Dallas and eight other U.S. cities. “We are building a technology and service to bring the executive coach to all, versus the present model that provides a high-quality executive coach to the executive—only there for the few,” McNabb says. Her time spent at Cox equipped her for the diverse career path she’s taken. “My SMU MBA was critical to my being able to work in a range of functional roles, from strategy to operations and be able to work in four very different industry sectors.” Her portfolio has ranged from a position on the Nexstar Broadcasting Group board of directors, to serving as the chief financial officer at Match.com as well as executive positions at PepsiCo, Frito-Lay and Sodexo Marriott. Through it all, McNabb continues to benefit from the Cox network. “Cox also gave me several of my dearest friends and one of them is an investor in my new company. They—with many at Cox from Jerry White to Dean Niemi and Kevin Knox—have mentored me at key stages of my career change points.”
MSE Student and U.S. Marine As a first-generation Vietnamese American, Andy Nguyen (MSE ’11) has had two lifelong passions: serving his country and pursuing the American Dream. Since he was a child, Nguyen admired his father, a veteran who fought in the Vietnam War while serving in the Vietnamese Navy and eventually made his way to America to start his own business. “No one ever told him he couldn’t do something.” Nguyen said. “That meant he would do it.” So it came as no surprise when, at 18, Nguyen turned his passion for fast cars into his first venture, Prodigy Motorsports. “Passion doesn’t necessarily equal smart business,” Nguyen says. “The business turned after a couple of years, but the learning experience was priceless. It just goes to show that having a formal business plan is critical in the world of entrepreneurship. Experience plus education definitely gives entrepreneurs a sustainable competitive advantage.” While Nguyen was in college, the 9/11 attacks occurred. Compelled to take action,
President Renaissance Contractors Partnership Amidst commentary about rising college tuition is a pearl of wisdom from Angela Dominguez (MBA ’93): “Tuition is cheaper than trial and error in the real world.” Before she dared to strike out on her own, Dominguez made the decision to attend the Cox Professional MBA program while working full-time for Austin Bridge & Road Inc. as a civil engineer. Her experience at Cox prepared her to start a subcontracting business with her husband, Mike Barber. Together, they launched Renaissance Contractors Partnership with just six employees in 1995 to fill a void in the market for a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) that could install utility lines—including www.cox.smu.edu
he followed his calling and joined the Marines. Nguyen proudly served from 20022006 before returning to the University of North Texas to complete his bachelor’s in entrepreneurship. “I love being an entrepreneur, and I love the Marine Corps,” he says. “It’s all about the ability to handle adversity.” After transitioning out of active duty, Nguyen started a small Internet marketing and web development firm in Dallas called WSI Search. He is also a franchise consultant with The Entrepreneur Authority, where he advises entrepreneurs which franchises best fit their personalities and desires. Once he completes his Master of Science in Entrepreneurship (MSE) at the Cox School, he intends to pursue yet another venture: an organization that would help Marines transition into the business world. With his experience, he knows there’s a built-in marketplace, with 30,000 to 40,000 former Marines joining the civilian workforce each year. Meanwhile, he still serves in the Marine Reserves, traveling frequently to train other Marines from state to state. How does he make it all work? “It’s the Marine in me,” he says. “If we don’t have a million things on
sewer lines, water lines and stormdrainage pipes. Their company has served as subcontractor for some of the state’s highprofile transit projects built for TxDOT, Dallas Area Rapid Transit, Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and the North Texas Tollway Authority, among others. “Our business is capital-intensive—it requires a lot of heavy equipment, and it’s expensive,” she says. “We’re a subcontractor, so payment isn’t always immediate. I learned at SMU that cash flow is very important for a thriving business.” Her degree didn’t insulate Renaissance from the ups and downs of the business world, but this advice from her professors helped substantially: Maintain a good relationship with a local banker. Fifteen years later, her company is standing financially strong and growing, employing 111.
our plate, we’re not happy.” Even though the Marines instill the tenacity to get things done and walk into any boardroom with confidence, the business acumen from his experience at Cox has helped him elevate the conversation and pursue new opportunities. “The wealth of knowledge of the faculty, alumni and guest speakers has been invaluable. It doesn’t seem like class but mini-seminars … the case studies and open discussions are exactly what I’m drawn to.” Whatever challenges are ahead, Nguyen is prepared. “In the Marines, missions change frequently and we learn the ability to adapt and overcome,” he says. “It’s the same thing in the world of entrepreneurship; the markets change and we have to be resilient. Think of it this way: If everyone quit when things got tough, then there wouldn’t be a Marine Corps or an economy.”
As these four entrepreneurs prove, the insights and connections gained from Cox have been instrumental to their ability to continuously adapt and thrive as industries and careers change. As McNabb reflects on her degree and the people she’s met along her Fortune 500 path, “I have many team members and clients who have felt affinity from a shared SMU background and many others with MBAs from other schools who see me as a peer.” Dominguez still draws lessons from her experiences as a student of Rogge Dunn, a high-power Dallas trial lawyer and SMU alumnus who now teaches business law for SMU’s EMBA program. “Every Saturday morning he would draw a name, and that person would be on the hot seat, and he would grill them with questions,” she recalls. “It taught me to be prepared. I was never on the hot seat, but I feared it. When we own a business, we are on the hot seat every day.” From Executive Education programs to a range of MBA programs suited for today’s working professional, visit cox.smu.edu for resources to help your career.
Are You an Entrepreneurial Thinker? ?
Genetics or just plain hard work? Jerry White and Scott Walker share
traits of successful business starters
By Mark Stuertz
Photography by Dan Sellers www.cox.smu.edu
Years ago, Scott Walker woke up every morning in a cold sweat. He agonized over complexities necessary to keep BillMatrix Corporation, his direct payment solutions firm, functioning properly.
Entrepreneur Scott Walker
Virtually every company that attempted to do what he was doing had failed. Visa, with its billions in resources, wanted to crush him. “I used to call it death by a thousand cuts,” says Walker. “There were a thousand things that had to happen. But if any one of those things did not occur in that transaction, it failed. Look, if I had known what I was going to encounter, I never would have done it.” Yet Walker did it again. In 2005, he sold BillMatrix to Fiserv, Inc. for $350 million. He turned right around and started another company: ProCore Labs, a Dallas-based contract filler of health and beauty products. Walker is a member of a rare and glorified species: the entrepreneur. Is an entrepreneur born or made? If they’re made, how can one learn and absorb the essential entrepreneurial spirit and marshal the thought processes for success? The answers are certainly as diverse and varied as the entrepreneurial demographic. “Entrepreneurs are both made and born,” says Benjamin Hurt, 24, founder of granola maker Impact Foods. “You can be born with creative vision and a certain perseverance. But certain habits need to be learned.” Researchers seem to concur. According to a study co-authored by Professor Scott Shane of Case Western Reserve University’s Weatherhead School of Management, examining sets of both identical and fraternal twins, specific entrepreneurial aptitudes—such as the ability to discern business opportunities—are largely driven by genetic factors. Forty percent of the entrepreneur’s portfolio of aptitudes and skills is due to genetics, the researchers concluded, while 60 percent of those same skills can be attributed to environmental influences
and learned capabilities. “Entrepreneur” is applied to a variety of roles, says Jerry White, director of Cox’s Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship, one of the first such programs offered in the United States. The title could refer to a small business owner-manager, a husband-andwife team operating a family business or a lifestyle business designed by its founders to generate a specific level of income—and no more. Yet such roles don’t necessarily touch the true spirit of what it means to be a genuine entrepreneur. “The term is overused,” insists Walker, a self-described “serial entrepreneur” who has launched six businesses and is at work on a seventh. He is a member of the Cox Executive Board, guest lecturer and financial contributor to Cox through the Caruth Institute, as well as a proud parent of a current Cox student, Cameron Walker (BBA ’10, MSA ’11). “Anyone who picks up the phone in their home is an entrepreneur. When I started, no one wanted to be known as an entrepreneur. Entrepreneurs were those crazy, wacko guys in the garage constantly experimenting.” From behavioral patterns to operating beliefs, Walker and White outline five unique traits successful entrepreneurs typically have in common. Relentlessly pursue growth Howard H. Stevenson of Harvard Business School best defines the role as: A person who pursues opportunity without regard to resources already controlled. “If I need it, I’ll get it. If I need people, I’ll find them. If I need money, I’ll raise it,” White emphatically explains. “Entrepreneurship implies growth.” 1
Have stamina “There is a certain amount of psychological makeup that you have to have to play the entrepreneurial game,” White says. “If for nothing else than to cope with the stress and muster the physical stamina necessary to stay up all night, and stay up all night again, and still make good decisions.” High-performance entrepreneurs are typically realistic individuals who 2
Write your own rules Entrepreneurs typically have superior conceptual abilities, or the capacity to formulate abstractions, analyze complex situations and think creatively to solve problems. They also have the heightened capacity to thrive in chaotic environments, making sound decisions when confronted with conditions characterized by a scarcity of relevant information. Walker describes it as living in a fog. “If you want to be an entrepreneur, you’ve got to be able to live on the edge,” he says. “To be looking where no one else is looking, where the rules have yet to be written, where a market hasn’t yet been established, where there is nothing to support you. Once the rules are written, the game’s over.” 3
Take challenges, but don’t gamble Entrepreneurs often are thought of as bold risk takers—gamblers who bet the farm on a long shot. But such characterizations are more cliché than reality, White says. Long-term successful entrepreneurs are moderate risk takers. They hedge their bets. “On the average, gamblers are losers,” White insists. “On the average, hedgers are winners. It’s more helpful to talk about entrepreneurs as challenge takers, rather than risk takers. They like to pit themselves against a challenge, overcome that challenge and then raise the bar.” On the surface, entrepreneurs may appear reckless because they play for big stakes. Everything is on the table. Yet what may look like a high-risk gambit to the casual observer may simply be a workable challenge for the insightful entrepreneur. Mortgaging a house and other personal assets to fund a startup is actually a calculated risk supported by abundant data and market-insider savvy. The upstart entering a market saddled with debt may have several ways to service that debt. They may have lined up options in advance to restructure debt should things go awry. Or they may have calculated that the sheer force of value created by their enterprise will overwhelm high startup costs. 4
Successful entrepreneurs are often adept with such judgment calls, says White. “How are you going to pay your bills?” Walker asks. “I’m not worried because I have enough faith in myself that I can create value. I believe there are very few people out there who can go out and create value. That’s why you have 99 percent of the world out there working for somebody else.” In addition to what is seemingly an unwavering faith in their capabilities, successful entrepreneurs also have an uncanny ability to rapidly absorb data and learn fast enough to stay on top of problems. “Where people get into trouble is when they emotionalize a problem,” White says. “If you let problems debilitate you, or diminish your fighting ability, you are not going to win. The best entrepreneurs are, of course, very concerned, but they seem to have a dispassion, a belief that ‘we can solve this problem. We’ll get through this.’” Remain disciplined, not distracted Successful entrepreneurs, says White, stay very focused on solving problems, and they assiduously avoid distractions from side issues. Instead of morning sweats, Walker says he now wakes up every morning anticipating the day’s challenges, excited by how he might change the world. Instead of fearing problems, he embraces them. Yet what many aspiring entrepreneurs may not realize is that coming up with a world-changing idea and developing a company is the easy part. The grueling part involves the discipline of execution. “There are a million ideas out there,” concludes Walker. “Being an entrepreneur is taking that idea and creating a viable, profitable company around that idea. It’s simple. But it’s the most difficult thing you will ever do.”

possess a never-ending sense of urgency, White adds. These individuals don’t waste time agonizing over failure. Instead, they view circumstances as they exist and resolve to leverage them to their advantage.
Making a global impact: Benjamin Hurt Benjamin Hurt (BBA ’08) is a serial business starter. At age six, he started a currency carnival in his neighborhood, inventing games kids could play using nickels, dimes and quarters. After getting cut from his school’s basketball team at the age of 14, Hurt turned his misfortune into a business, founding a summer basketball camp for kids ages six through 11. He ran his camp for six years, hiring the players on the team that cut him. He even launched two clothing companies before founding Impact Foods with fellow student Blaine Iler. The core of Hurt’s business philosophy is a quest to find marketplace solutions to global challenges. Thus Impact Foods, a maker of all-natural granola, donates a portion of its profits from each sale to provide meals for needy children throughout the world. “We offer a solution in the form of convenient philanthropy,” says Hurt, 24. What are the essential entrepreneurial traits according to Hurt? A bias toward action coupled with a strong dose of optimism and ruthless persistence. “You have to look at the world through a lens of opportunity,” he says. “You have to see it through to the end. Even if you’re failing, you’re failing forward.”

The Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship A Pioneer in Entrepreneurial Education
wo years into an entrepreneurial journey that would eventually lead to the creation of The Container Store in the late 1970s, cofounder Garrett Boone found himself still struggling to put his finger on the idea. Boone had recently left his position as regional manager at Storehouse–a chain of lifestyle furniture stores–to explore the notion of creating a handmade wood furniture store with his business partner, Kip Tindell. Heeding the advice of his mother, Boone enrolled in the Caruth Institute’s “Starting A Business” course. “The course was extremely valuable. It forced me to focus on the business of starting a business and think in a more disciplined manner about what it would take to launch our dream. It helped me separate my passion for woodworking from the reality of starting a business, and that was an important step on the path to The Container Store,” said Boone. As one of the first entrepreneurship centers in the nation, the Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship has been
an inspiration and resource for many potential business owners such as Boone. Established at SMU Cox in 1970 by real estate legend and business mogul W.W. Caruth, Jr., the Institute is one of the nation’s most highly regarded centers for entrepreneurial education.
In the late 1960s and 70s, most business schools trained students to work for large businesses, not to start their own. There were few textbooks and traditional academics did not see the merit in an entrepreneurship focus. However, a few industry pioneers saw entrepreneurial education as a discipline and recognized it as an emerging field. Enter the visionary William Walter Caruth, Jr., who initially put up capital–not an endowment–so that the Caruth Institute would run like a real-life business. The program had to be developed from scratch. At the time, Jerry White, director of the Caruth Institute, was a Cox graduate student when he met Dr. John Welsh, who had been hired to establish the Caruth Institute as its founding director. Welsh had started one business and co‑founded another, both of which eventually found their way to the NYSE. White took all of Welsh’s courses, and, upon graduation, Welsh asked White to stay at Cox as associate director and help develop the Institute. White and Welsh forged ahead, creating Fall 2010
“It’s mind‑ boggling, the overall importance internationally of entrepreneurship education and the contribution that it makes to the overall entrepreneurial phenomenon.”
William Walter Caruth, Jr.
courses and innovative programs, while striving to gain recognition for the academic discipline of entrepreneurial education. According to the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, an institution devoted to entrepreneurship, by 1975 there were 104 majors, minors and certificates offered in entrepreneurship across the nation. Today, the Caruth Institute offers a full range of entrepreneurial programs. For SMU Cox students, the Caruth Institute offers 23 graduate and undergraduate courses in entrepreneurship. As students, MBAs and EMBAs have the opportunity to participate in several annual business plan competitions. The Cox MBA Venture Fund, along with its affiliated course, Venture Capital Practicum, gives students hands-on experience making venture capital investments in growthoriented businesses. And for those wanting further concentration into the study of entrepreneurship, Cox recently launched a 16-month Master of Science in Entrepreneurship. The Caruth Institute is inextricably www.cox.smu.edu
linked to the business community. Thousands of budding entrepreneurs, like Garrett Boone, got their start through the Caruth Institute’s eight-week “Starting A Business” course. Also renowned, the Southwest Venture Forum provides entrepreneurs the opportunity to network with potential venture investors. Highly coveted and widely reported, the Caruth Institute’s Dallas 100TM Awards
Jerry White and John Welsh
honors the 100 fastest-growing, privately held companies in Dallas each year. In all, White has taught and counseled more than 20,000 aspiring and practicing entrepreneurs throughout the United States and Canada since 1972, including Boone; Lee Posey, chairman and founder, Palm Harbor Homes; Bill and Julie Brice, who built I Can’t Believe It’s Yogurt; and Chris Cook (BBA ’91), who with his wife, Christine, built Sleep Experts into a major industry player. In 2005, the Caruth Institute received national recognition, ranking fifth among the nation’s top programs for entrepreneurship in Entrepreneur magazine. “The impact of entrepreneurs on economies is much better understood today than it was in the beginning. It is now a global movement and even embraced by countries that were once under the control of communism,” said White. “It’s mind‑boggling, the overall importance internationally of entrepreneurship education and the contribution that it makes to the overall entrepreneurial phenomenon.”
The Life of An Endowment
A Gift that Keeps On Giving I
n this and future issues of CoxToday, we’ll bring the cycle of an endowment to life by sharing the vision of our generous donors, the gifted professors and the students who are the ultimate beneficiaries. Perhaps you, too, will be moved to make a lasting impression on your school via such a bequest or at least appreciate the life span and everlasting impact these thoughtful gifts impart.
Professor and Bobby B. Lyle Chair in Entrepreneurship For 40 years, the Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship has inspired budding entrepreneurs from all walks of life to pursue their dreams of starting a business. Like other Cox School programs, the success of the Caruth Institute not only is driven by a dynamic curriculum that incorporates the latest global business trends, but also by the strength and expertise of its professors who bring that knowledge to life in the classroom. Bobby B. Lyle (’67) saw an opportunity to ensure the Caruth Institute would continue to deliver academic excellence via exceptional faculty when he generously endowed a professorship of entrepreneurial studies in 2006. “SMU has been an extremely important part of my life for the past 40 years,” he said. “I hope this gift will help Cox achieve the levels of academic excellence to which it aspires.” Dr. Lyle, founder of Lyco Energy, a petroleum and natural gas exploration and
production company, has a long history of providing visionary leadership at SMU and the Cox School. Among his many contributions, Lyle served on the Cox faculty from 1967-1975 and was dean ad interim and executive dean from 1970-1975. He serves as a member of the SMU Board of Trustees and the executive boards of the Lyle School of Engineering and the Cox School of Business. He also co-founded the highly regarded Cox Associate Board, through which business students connect with more than 250 professional mentors. Frequently acknowledged for his civic and educational contributions, Lyle was honored by SMU when the University named the school of engineering the Bobby B. Lyle School of Engineering in 2008. The Lyle School seeks to “educate engineers to be leaders and creative thinkers, prepared to take on the most profound challenges confronting society and our planet.” Thanks to his generosity, Lyle’s globally minded spirit and tireless passion for education will be perpetually embodied in the Bobby B. Lyle Professor of
Entrepreneurial Studies. Dean Niemi said, “Entrepreneurship has long been a major focus at the Cox School. Bobby Lyle’s wonderful gift enables us to encourage globally-innovative approaches with faculty who know how to prepare students for new challenges in the rapidly changing world of business.” With Lyle’s participation and endorsement, the Cox School hired Professor Maria Minniti to fulfill this vision. Dr. Minniti is a prolific author, editor and researcher who has taught at the London Business School, the Max Planck Institute and Humboldt University in Germany, and the Copenhagen Business School in Denmark. For 15 years, Minniti held permanent faculty positions at NYU, Skidmore College and Babson before joining SMU Cox in 2008. Minniti is passionate about her research on gender and minority entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial behavior and entrepreneurship’s impact on economic growth. She is a highly sought lecturer who frequently shares her findings at Fall 2010
Bobby Lyle and Maria Minniti
Maria Minniti Margret Kanyua with her daughter, Peninah Muguku
conferences around the world. She chose SMU because of the many opportunities the School and Dallas offer and because of Cox’s “excellent leadership.” She explained, “Dean Niemi and (Senior Associate Dean) Bill Dillon are both accomplished scholars. They understand how academia works and what the faculty needs.” When she shared her ideas for the endowed chair, they simply told her, “Go do it!” so she could get to work quickly. Like her endowment’s namesake, Minniti combines a passion for global causes with a hands-on, no-nonsense approach. It’s a formidable combination with universal application. She shares one of her current www.cox.smu.edu
projects, which she says is only possible because of the vision of Bobby Lyle. “I am comparing 40-60 developed and developing countries. I want to understand, ‘why does one thing work in the U.S. and not work in Argentina?’” Her findings may help break down barriers to entry and shed light on what markets and entrepreneurship mean around the world. With her depth of experience and ability to captivate a classroom, Minniti quickly became a favorite at the Cox School. Peninah Muguku (MSE ’08) found a mentor and kindred spirit in Minniti. Growing up in Kenya, Muguku came from a family of entrepreneurs. Her father, who
built a successful trade business exporting African art, told her, “Study hard. Be a doctor or a lawyer, but don’t do what I’m doing!” Instead of heeding his advice, she launched a flower business before deciding to pursue her Master of Science in Entrepreneurship at SMU Cox. There, she found her realworld experience made academic studies far more meaningful. “We would read about situations in class and I would think, ‘hey, I made that mistake!’” She laughs, “I was a real-life case study!” Hungry for more, Muguku is now pursuing a Ph.D. in entrepreneurial studies. Minniti is helping her vet doctorate programs and providing her with hands-on research experience. “She’s giving me papers to read and challenging me to come up with topics for my own research,” she explained. “Professor Minniti goes above and beyond!” As an entrepreneur and teacher, Muguku hopes to apply her skills to public policy in other parts of the world. Following the vision set by Lyle and the teachings of Minniti, she will share the knowledge and inspiration she found at the Cox School far and wide. Her efforts to cultivate entrepreneurship are both admirable and sincere. Muguku simply concludes, “I want to make a difference.” Thanks to the Lyle endowment, she will.

Giving Societies Recognize Faithful and Generous Supporters
As part of SMU Unbridled: The Second Century Campaign, we are providing special ways in which to honor some of our most loyal donors through the SMU giving societies. Here, we recognize just a few of our supporters who make an impact each day at SMU Cox and the giving society to which they belong.
President’s Associates The President’s Associates are donors who contribute cumulatively $1,000 or more to any area of the University during our fiscal year, June 1 – May 31. • Membership, awarded each year, is based on total gifts, pledge payments and matching gifts received in the previous fiscal year. • Alumni under 35 who graduated from SMU within the past 10 years are eligible for membership at 50 percent of the minimum gift amount. • Benefits include special communication from SMU, acknowledgement in SMU publications and invitations to special University and donor events.
Candice Chandler (BA ’68) and Steve Barnett (BBA ’69, JD ’72) Candice Chandler and Steve Barnett met at SMU and say the education they received and lifelong friendships they developed at SMU are invaluable. “We believe in giving back to SMU to help current students and to support the University that had such a positive impact on our lives. We met at SMU, received an excellent education and made lifelong friendships,” said Barnett. Chandler and Barnett attend all home football games and sometimes travel to support the team. They live in Dallas and enjoy spending time with their grandchildren and traveling. Chandler and Barnett have been supporters of SMU and the Cox School at the President’s Associates level since 1996. For more information about President’s Associates visit: www.smu.edu/donor
Hilltop Society The Hilltop Society honors donors who have shown a commitment to giving every year. • Recognition is based on the number of consecutive years of giving. • A gift, given every year, to any area of the University exponentially adds up and deserves special recognition. • Milestones for recognition are: two years, five years, 10 years, 15 years and 20 years of giving. • Members receive special communication from SMU, acknowledgement in SMU publications and invitations to University and donor events.
Lieutenant Colonel George B. Alden (BBA ’50) George Alden was a distinguished military student in the ROTC program on campus and received the first regular Air Force commission awarded at SMU. He served in Korea shortly after graduation. Following a successful military career, Lt. Col. Alden, a Purple Heart recipient, retired from the Air Force in 1977 and joined Hughes Aircraft Company in Los Angeles. Alden says, “My degree from SMU gave me an opportunity to get into the procurement field where my business skills were put to use in contract negotiations, management and production of aircraft and missiles. I choose to support SMU and the Cox School every year because it is an exceptional school and I am very proud to be an alumnus.” Alden has been a loyal, consecutive supporter of SMU and the Cox School of Business since 1979.

Dallas Hall Society Named for SMU’s first building on campus and the heart of academic and intellectual life, the Dallas Hall Society recognizes the generosity and foresight of those who are securing SMU’s future through planned gifts. Membership is extended to those who: • include SMU as a beneficiary in his or her will or living trust; • name SMU as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement plan; • name SMU as a beneficiary of a life income gift (a remainder trust, a gift annuity or lead trust); or • make a gift of a personal residence or farm to SMU, while retaining life estate. • SMU honors Dallas Hall Society members with a limited edition print of a painting of Dallas Hall, a certificate of membership and invitations to special events.
Stephen Perkins (BBA ’07) Growing up in Dallas, Stephen Perkins knew early on that SMU was the place where he would excel and be best prepared to achieve his goals. Perkins’ mother made sure that receiving a great education was a top priority so she sent him to Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas, where Perkins worked hard in order to secure significant scholarships that would help make his dream of attending SMU a reality. When asked why he decided to give back to SMU the way he did, Perkins says, “I was very lucky to be able to attend SMU in the first place. I have an obligation to give back what was so abundantly given to me.” Perkins graduated with his BBA in 2007 and built a practice in the DFW area, where he builds “bridges” for his clients – connecting their financial plans to their life plan. In a way, that’s what Perkins has done by including SMU Cox in his estate plans; he has built a bridge between his desire to support SMU Cox today and securing that support for the future.
Susan (BS ’67) and Bob (BBA ’67) Wilson Dallas Hall Society members, Susan and Bob Wilson, say that they owe much to their alma mater. The Wilsons, married for more than 40 years, met at SMU not having met previously in their shared hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. When asked why they chose to give back to SMU and the Cox School through their estate plans, Bob says, “We owe so much of our professional success to the education we each received at SMU, and it is because of the values instilled in us by our parents that we give back to support others.” Through their annual giving to the Cox School, the Wilsons have established the Wilson Scholars Program benefitting upper-class BBA students who give back to the community. Over the years, many students, often from Tennessee, have reaped the rewards of the Wilsons’ generous spirit. The Wilsons’ estate gift will ensure that the Wilson Scholars Program at SMU’s Cox School of Business lasts in perpetuity.
