Future of B-Schools Part 2: Wharton fails to make it to innovators list!

And then you wonder why B-Schools are failing. Many financial institutions and schools that take the pride (what is that in todays global economy anyways) in teaching the fresh grads to go after the global economy where they have to chase a new and wild breed of money lenders. You have the Egotistic Sheikhs, the Opulent Indians, the Angry Africans, the distrustful Chinese and the disgruntled Venezuelans, and they don't care about your background.

Anyways we are still on track and intend to drill all business schools one by one and ask them this simple question: "Why on earth should I spend my time and my parents hard-earned money into your institution?"

I have been talking to many young fresh and experienced graduates (with work experience, that is) and they all are weighing their odds and even wondering why on earth they should spend loads of cash when the "personal ROI" is still achievable with a manageable investment that does not involve any huge investment in failing and dilapidated institutions in the west.

Here's the list of the school that did make it into the innovation list:

Rank- United States Schools
1 Stanford University
2 The University of Michigan
3 University of California, Berkeley
4 University of Notre Dame
5 Columbia University
6 Cornell University
7 Duquesne University
8 Yale University
9 New York University
10 The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Rank- European Schools
1 Instituto de Empresa
2 ESADE Business School
3 Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University
4 The University of Nottingham
5 University of Jyväskylä
6 Copenhagen Business School
8 IMD - International Institute for Management Development
9 Cranfield School of Management
10 University of Bath

More coming later, in the meantime check this out...

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…

Redhot Future Of IT Part 2 :Virtualized Workplaces

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…
