Haas School Honors Tom Clausen with the Lifetime Achievement Award


AW "Tom" Clausen

Tom Clausen


Over his career, AW "Tom" Clausen rose from bank vault clerk to CEO, led Bank of America to become the country's largest commercial bank, and ran the World Bank. This Friday he will be recognized with the Haas School's Lifetime Achievement Award at the third annual Haas Gala.


The Haas Gala will take place on Friday, Oct. 29, from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. at San Francisco's Palace Hotel. To purchase tickets for the black-tie optional event or to sponsor a table, call 510-642-7790 or register online at http://www.acteva.com/booking.cfm?bevaid=71017.


"Tom Clausen is a singular figure in the history of the banking industry," says Dean Tom Campbell.  "He has long played a role on the world stage of international business and economic development. He has a world view in all he does but has never lost sight of the individual, especially the needy."


After graduating fromCarthage College in 1944, Clausen got a taste of international issues while serving four years in the US Army Air Corps. At the end of his service, he returned to the states and earned a law degree from the University of Minnesota. After three years of study, while waiting for his bar exam results, he took a job as a part-time vault clerk at Bank of America in Los Angeles, an experience that changed the course of this life.  In the end, instead of practicing law, he entered Bank of America's executive training program.


In 1970, Clausen was elected president and chief executive officer of BankAmerica Corporation and Bank of America. He led the bank through dramatic growth from 1970 through 1981 before leaving to serve as president of the World Bank in Washington, DC. In 1986, he returned to BankAmerica as chairman and chief executive officer, retiring in 1990.


Clausen is a graduate of the Advanced Management Program at the Harvard Business School and a recipient of the Harvard Business School Alumni Achievement Award, the Outstanding Achievement Award from the University of Minnesota, the Carthage Distinguished Alumnus Award, and the California Industrialist of the Year Award. He is the recipient of honorary degrees from Carthage, Gonzaga University, Lewis and Clark College, the University of Minnesota, the University of Notre Dame, the University of the Pacific, and the University of Santa Clara. He has been awarded the prestigious University of California San Francisco Medal and the Carthage Flame.


Clausen has been a committed Haas supporter since the late 1980s and, together with his late wife Peggy, funded the Clausen Center for International Business and Policy in 1995. In addition to supporting the Clausen Center at Haas, he has endowed the Clausen Center for World Business at Carthage College and two Distinguished Professorships at the University of California at San Francisco.


Other awards to be presented at the Gala include: Chapter of the Year to the South Bay Chapter of the Haas Alumni Network; Emerging Chapter of the Year to the Shanghai Chapter of the Haas Alumni Network; and the Raymond E. Miles Alumni Service Award to Ernie G. Bumatay, MBA 73.



The Haas School's Annual Fund Surpasses Fundraising Goal


The Haas School raised $2,035,819 for the Annual Fund last year-20% more than the goal of $1.7 million.


Much of this was due to growth in the Leadership Society, a special group of donors who give at least $1,000 each year.


"Leadership society donations comprised 74% of the annual gift total, or more than $1.5 million," says Kathy Andrews, director of the Annual Fund. "Among other things, these contributions have helped in adding to the Haas School faculty," says Andrews.


Andrews also notes that the participation rate for the Annual Fund, which provides broad-based alumni support to the Haas School, has been increasing steadily over the last few years. Leadership Society membership leapt from 370 members to 889 members this year.


The Haas School's efforts to form class giving committees from non-reunion classes also played a part in the increase. "Traditionally, reunion-year classes have raised funds for a class gift to the school," says Andrews. "We worked to get non-reunion classes to raise funds on an annual basis as well. Last year there were 11 class giving committees, and for this year, we hope to have 15 in place." 


The class committees compete against each other for the highest participation rate and the most total dollars raised, with the winners being recognized at the annual Leadership Society dinner.


For fiscal year 2004, Andrews says, "We will concentrate on increasing the participation rate to stay competitive with other business schools, and plan to raise at least $1.8 million-we hope we'll again be 20% above goal."



Energy Innovator to Speak at Launch of 2005 UC Berkeley Business Plan Competition


Members of Proton Power, the winning team in the 2004 UC Berkeley Business Plan Competition and recent runner-up in the Global Startup@Singapore competition, will share their entrepreneurial experiences at the launch of the seventh annual UC Berkeley Business Plan Competition, Tuesday, October 26, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Wells Fargo Room.


"We are big supporters of the business plan competition," says Proton Power team member Andrei Marinescu, MBA 05. "It gave us an opportunity to take a technology out of the lab, bring it to bear in the context of a business model, and validate that model with the most critical audience that an entrepreneur will encounter: venture capitalists. Even though we had a technology and a concept that we were very confident in, the competition provided for a lot of eye-opening lessons on how to go about building the framework for a business."


Marinescu and his fellow team members created an energy technology company that provides cost effective, efficient, and clean fuel cell power systems for transportation applications. They are currently developing a prototype for an auxiliary power unit that would allow long-distance freight truck drivers to power their internal systems -- heating, air conditioning, and other electrical devices -- while on their legally mandated rest breaks without having to idle their engines. They are engaged in discussions with several venture capital firms.


For anyone interested in nurturing his or her own entrepreneurial ideas and vying for the $25,000 top prize, the launch event provides ample opportunity to network with students, Bay Area entrepreneurs, and other possible future team members, and to learn about competition rules and key dates.


The competition is organized by Berkeley MBA students and hosted by the Haas School's Lester Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation in cooperation with the School of Information Management and Systems, UCSF Innovation Accelerator, and the College of Engineering. For a team to be eligible for participation, at least one team member must be a student, faculty, staff, or an alumna/alumnus of either the University of California at Berkeley or the University of California at San Francisco.

New Professor Explores Intersection of Academia and the Biotech Industry


In her research on the evolving relationship between academia and the biotechnology industry, Waverly Ding has found that the relationship is reciprocal, with industry influencing academia and academia, in turn, influencing industry.


Ding, a new assistant professor in the Haas School's Organizational Behavior and Industrial Relations group, has studied conditions under which university-employed scientists have been willing to enter the biotech industry over the past 30 years, thereby breaking long-standing taboos against academics participating in commercial activities. Analyzing data on some 6,000 scientists, Ding discovered that the presence of colleagues and collaborators who already had some entrepreneurial experience significantly boosted the likelihood that Ph.D. researchers would become involved in business ventures.  


Ding has also found that having the right work context and network structure is particularly important for female scientists. Her research shows that women are far less likely to become entrepreneurs than men, but that the presence of colleagues and co-authors who are engaged in such activities helps spur women to seek commercial opportunities. "It's hard for women to talk to venture capitalists about their discoveries because high technology is a world dominated by men," Ding says. "Therefore, having colleagues who can bring them into contact with the commercial world is critical."


Over time, she says, entrepreneurial activity has diffused throughout academia, and universities are becoming ever more accommodating to entrepreneurial activities in many fields of science.


Likewise, academia has exerted its influence on the biotech field, Ding has discovered. Many biotech firms now allow their staff to publish research findings in scientific journals—somewhat surprising, given that information freely disseminated through journals can potentially be appropriated by competing firms, says Ding. But firms founded by academic scientists adhere to this open practice nonetheless, striking a fine balance between strategically preserving research secrecy and projecting the image of being science-oriented to attract top research talent from universities.


In related work, Ding has observed that small, early-stage biotech firms are increasingly leveraging their close relations with academia by playing the role of technology "broker" between universities and more established firms. They license promising scientific discoveries from universities and then sign alliance deals with established firms to co-develop these discoveries into commercial products.


Ding holds an MBA and Ph.D. in business from the University of Chicago. She also holds an MA in sociology from NYU and a BA in English from Beijing Foreign Studies University.



Come Hear UNIDO Director-General Speak on Nov. 1


United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) Director-General Carlos Magariños will speak on "New Directions for the UN" at a special Management of Technology lecture at the Haas School on Monday, November 1, at 4:00 p.m. in the Wells Fargo Room. His talk will be followed by a reception.


UNIDO is responsible for reducing poverty through sustainable industrialization in developing countries and the economies in transition. During his first term of office as director-general, Magariños implemented an aggressive reform program for the organization that has received worldwide recognition. He is now working in his second term to ensure and maintain excellent standards in the delivery of UNIDO's services.


This visit is part of the continuing and growing collaboration between UNIDO and the MOT Program at UC Berkeley. The MOT/UNIDO collaboration includes an annual conference, "Bridging the Divide," and the MOT/UN Fellows Program.  The second annual "Bridging the Divide" conference will take place April 21 - 22, 2005.  The MOT program is a joint effort between Haas, the College of Engineering, and the School of Information Management and Systems.


Seats for the talk will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. No RSVP is required.


Former Michigan State MBA Director Now Heads Evening & Weekend MBA Program


Jennifer Chizuk joined the Haas School as executive director of the Evening and Weekend MBA Program in October.


Prior to joining Haas, Chizuk served as director of the MBA Program at the Eli Broad Graduate School of Management at Michigan State University, where she was responsible for admissions, budgeting, curriculum development, and student services. Her accomplishments during her thirteen-year tenure include: co-chairing the MBA core curriculum review committee; incorporating alumni into the classroom experience; expanding international opportunities for students; and increasing the Broad School's national visibility through success in MBA case competitions. She also served on the Women's Advisory Committee to the MSU Provost.


Chizuk holds an MBA from Michigan State University, as well as degrees in mechanical engineering and electrical engineering from General Motors Institute (now Kettering University). Prior to joining MSU, she enjoyed a five-year career at General Motors where she held positions as a project engineer and financial analyst. She was selected for the position at Haas following a national search by a committee that included faculty, staff, and EWMBAA president Niko Letunic, MBA 05.


Tennis, skiing, and scuba diving are among her favorite activities. She relocated to the Bay Area with her husband and stepchildren, all of whom are enjoying the local weather and activities.
