Berkeley MBA Team Takes First Place at National Real Estate Competition

A team of first- and second-year Berkeley MBA students took top honors for the second year in a row at the Real Estate Finance Challenge on Friday, October 31, in Austin, Texas.


The competition attracted teams from 12 major business schools, including Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, Columbia, Kellogg, and Haas. In the final round of the competition the Berkeley team beat out competitors from UT Austin and Harvard to win first place.


Hosted by the University of Texas at Austin, the challenge is a case-based real estate competition among leading business schools around the country and is judged by professionals from the investment banking, lending, and real estate development communities.

Nancy Wallace
"The word is now out that Haas is the school to beat," says Professor Nancy Wallace, advisor to the team.

The members of the Haas team are Marek Fibrich, MBA 05; Julie Golderer, MBA 03; Dina Koss, MBA 05; Adrian Polak, MBA 05; Eric Schrumpf, MBA 04; and Scott Youdall, MBA 04.


"We again had a very strong Haas team," says Nancy Wallace, chair of the Real Estate Group and faculty advisor to the team. "Since Haas set the bar in the UT Austin competition last year, in some sense, we were competing against ourselves. It is really gratifying to see Haas students set the standard of performance among top-tier business schools and consistently deliver creative and focused solutions to technically demanding business problems. The word is now out that Haas is the school to beat. The word is also out among real estate capital market recruiters that Haas is the place to hire."


This year's case focused on repositioning a $50 million investment in a retail property that was performing significantly below expectations. The team's task was to develop a strategy to restructure the asset given a host of problems including environmental hazards, a high vacancy rate, high levels of debt, and the need for a rapid exit strategy.


The Fisher Center for Real Estate & Urban Economics sponsored the team's trip to Austin. For more news on the competition, visit http://www.mccombs.utexas.edu/students/gres/REChallenge.asp.

Management Visionary Presents His Film on Leadership and Don Quixote, Nov. 17

At first glance, Don Quixote would not seem to have been much of a leader, but Stanford Professor James March saw in this classic tale a quality that all leaders need: persistence in their vision and commitment to that vision, which he captured in a film to be shown at the Haas School on November 17.

The Haas community is invited to view March's film, entitled "Passion and Discipline: Don Quixote's Lessons for Leadership." The film will be followed by a panel discussion on leadership. The event will take place on November 17 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the Arthur Andersen Auditorium and is sponsored by the Pearce Initiative for Leadership Development and the Institute for Management, Innovation, and Organization.


The panelists for the event will be John Reed, interim chairman of the New York Stock Exchange and former CEO of CitiCorp; Eric Wanner, president of the Russell Sage Foundation; James March, emeritus professor at the Stanford Graduate School of Business; and David Teece, the Mitsubishi Bank Professor of International Business and Finance at the Haas School.


The film, produced by James March and Steven Schecter, builds upon March's ideas on leadership and organization, which he taught for many years in classes at Stanford's Graduate School of Business. It demonstrates some of the fundamental issues and dilemmas in modern management and leadership strategy. The film includes interviews with modern leaders and numerous episodes drawn from the Don Quixote tale to demonstrate the significance of "joy, commitment, imagination, and foolishness" in leadership.


The panel discussion will be followed by a reception in the Bank of America Forum. For more information on this Pearce forum event, contact IMIO@haas.berkeley.edu or call 510-642-4041. For further information on the panelists or the film, contact Mie Augier at augier@stanford.edu.

Fisher Center Study Reports on Potential Impact of Outsourcing Jobs from the US

A ferocious new wave of outsourcing of white-collar jobs is sweeping the United States, according to a new study published by the Haas School's Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics researchers, who say the trend could leave as many as 14 million service jobs in the United States vulnerable.

Study authors Ashok Deo Bardhan and Cynthia Kroll say that not all of the at-risk jobs are likely to be lost. But, they note, jobs remaining in the United States could be subject to pressures to lower wages, and the jobs that leave may slow the nation's job growth or generate losses in related activities.


Jobs most vulnerable to the new wave of outsourcing, according to the study, include medical transcription services, stock market research for financial firms, customer service call centers, legal online database research, payroll, and other "back office" activities. Altogether, the positions feature vulnerability-producing attributes such as a lack of face-to-face customer service, work processes that enable telecommuting and Internet-based work, high wage differentials between countries, a high information content, low social networking requirements, and low set-up costs.


"Because white-collar work is so widely spread throughout the United States, many different parts of the country may feel the effects of this wave of outsourcing," says Kroll. Areas that benefited over the past two decades from the migration of "back office" work out of central cities could now see a share of those jobs leave for other parts of the world, warn Kroll and Bardhan.


But all is not necessarily gloomy for the United States' economy, the researchers say. For example, outsourcing of service jobs may prove more costly to the economy than the earlier wave of manufacturing outsourcing, conclude Kroll and Bardhan. This, they say, would be the case if the economy does not generate enough technological growth to replace the jobs lost with new ones and workers eventually find new work in lower-wage occupations.


"On the other hand," says Bardhan, "continuing innovation and technological advances could allow the US and California economies to keep the 'cream' of new development and higher value-added jobs at home, while more routine activities are outsourced."


This was the pattern for hightech manufacturing outsourcing of California's low-wage assembly jobs during a downturn that brought productivity increases in its wake and a wide range of opportunities in new service jobs, he said.

On-Campus Berkeley MBA Recruiting Up Over Last Fall

The Chetkovich Career Center is buzzing with activity this fall, due in part to an upswing in on-campus recruiting of Berkeley MBA students, which has increased over 10% from fall 2002.


Many long-standing recruiters such as Wells Fargo, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, and Deloitte Consulting returned to campus this fall. They were joined by new companies including L'Oreal, AT&T Wireless, Applera, and Archstone Consulting. In the next month, Clorox, Accenture, A.T. Kearney, SBC Communications, and Credit Suisse First Boston will be on campus interviewing students for full-time positions. For the spring semester the career center has already lined up Genentech, Lazard, Real Networks, Apple, Franklin Templeton, ZS Associates, Cisco, and many more.


"The feedback I am getting from recruiters is very positive," says Abby Scott, director of MBA Career Services. "The Berkeley MBA students are prepared and well informed about the positions they are interviewing for. Recruiters are also appreciative of some the new services the recruitment team provides, such as curbside parking and lunch with Haas staff and faculty."


Increasing the number of on-campus recruiters has been a long-term project for the career services account managers, says Scott. The account managers have been tapping into both existing recruiters and new contacts, and they are seeing more positive responses as the economy has been improving, which is reflected in the larger numbers.


In related news, Scott recently formed a student task force to keep abreast of Berkeley MBA student needs in all areas of career services. This task force has already met and is working to keep all constituencies informed and well-served.
