10一500红包扫雷7个包技巧traveling abroad indisputably challenges your notion of reality and exposes you to a new understanding of consciousness and human existence. i have had the privilege of traveling to multiple latin countries during my time at texas a&m, but i can honestly say that visiting chile has had the greatest intellectual impact on my appreciation for nature and understanding of entrepreneurship.

the geographical sights of chile are truly breath-taking. the country has an array of natural landforms to be captivated by, from the snow-covered villarrica volcano to the crystal-clear waterfalls in the huilo-huilo biological reserve. witnessing the different landforms in chile left me astonished by the beauty that nature is capable of producing. as americans, it is very easy to forget about how mesmerizing the creations of nature can truly be, as we are often focused on our work, school, and other implications of western civilization. chileans pursue many of the same things that americans do as far as entrepreneurial aspirations, but they don’t forget about the beauty and power of nature; they embrace it. environmental conservation is something that has become a widespread concern in america since about the 1960s, but in chile, it is a lifestyle that has been passed on for generations. the mapuche tribe, which is an indigenous group in chile, is largely responsible for the passing of these principles. when conversing with locals, many of them explicitly expressed to me how important environmental preservation is for their culture. from a more observant perspective, i was able to see that they truly practice what they preach. the streets of santiago are relatively free of litter, and the fields of villarica will not hold a speck of litter either. this was one of the most inspiring parts of the trip.

10一500红包扫雷7个包技巧the intriguing aspects of chilean culture stretch far beyond their environmental concerns. due to chile’s unique history, its culture is influenced by many different backgrounds. for example, many schools in villarica actually teach german as a result of early german colonization. many small businesses have german-influenced names and architectures as a result of this, too.

meeting the entrepreneurs was definitely a highlight of the trip. i had the opportunity to work with an array of businesses, from wood-craft shops to jewelry shops. each of these businesses had their own unique obstacles they were looking to overcome, but nevertheless they were all extremely grateful to be meeting with students from texas a&m. they were very open to the suggestions we gave them, asked insightful questions and even fed us. i was a translator for my group, which was definitely a bit of a challenge at times, but it was well worth it when i was able to see how much the entrepreneurs appreciated everything we did for them.

from an entrepreneurship standpoint, i gained a new perspective on a few things. entrepreneurs in chile served as problem-solvers for the community, just as american entrepreneurs do here. one of the main differences is that they generally want to make enough to get by and provide for their families; scaling their business is not much of a concern for them. here in america, entrepreneurship is often associated with scaling-up and becoming the next amazon or google. however, most chileans define success as being able to provide for their families year-round on a consistent basis. this is an idea that i found surprising initially, but after conversing with the entrepreneurs i began to understand why. scaling means more costs, time, resources and much more energy that the entrepreneurs would rather use to spend time with their families.

another new perspective i gained was the importance of competitive advantages. in american entrepreneurship, one of the early stages of starting a business is developing a competitive advantage. business owners strive to create a competitive advantage for themselves to rise above their peers. in chile, markets are very homogenous. everyone in markets essentially sells the same thing for the same price, thus the idea of competitive advantage is not something people think about. we found that the lack of competitive advantage was holding many ambitious entrepreneurs from reaching the next level of their business. many of them were exhilarated when we introduced them to these ideas.

10一500红包扫雷7个包技巧the mcferrin global entrepreneurship trip to chile has been one of the biggest highlights of my college career. i am certain that i will look back on this experience many years into my professional career and still appreciate every moment of it. i fell in love with the chilean culture and have enthusiastically shared aspects of it with my peers back in college station. i am grateful to have had the opportunity to meet so many amazing people while over there and am ready to explore other countries who seek help from aggies!

On a muggy, February morning the Memorial Student Center was bustling with business and community leaders serving as judges for the 2020 MBA Venture Challenge. February 17, 2020, marked the 19th year of the competition, at which 12 teams of Full-Time MBA students competed for $5,000 and bragging rights as the winners of the 2020 MBA Venture Challenge.

in preparation for the annual competition, each team is tasked with developing a financial and competitive analysis of current and future market and growth strategies for real-world companies. the full-time mba students only have 3 weeks to complete their analysis and the companies are not required to provide any documents or information to the students. most companies will hand over financials, business plans, and private information. however, many ask that the students form their own conclusions independent of how the company is currently operating.

before teams could present their analyses, they first had to deliver an elevator pitch that would hopefully convince the judges that their presentation was worth watching. each team was allotted a hard 2-minute time limit on their pitch. no slides, videos, or other technology was allowed during the elevator pitch round. after watching all 12 pitches, the judges self-selected which judging group they wanted to join. in total, the day-long competition includes over three rounds of judging by an audience of experienced judges from mcferrin center’s network of business, academic and entrepreneurial community leaders. each round required the teams to present a concise yet in-depth analysis of the start-up and provide meaningful recommendations for future company success. by the final round of judging the number of competing only 6 teams were left with a chance to win cash prizes.

“our 19th annual mba venture challenge established new records in the number of companies applying to participate and the number of volunteers judging the competition,” said blake petty, director of the mcferrin center for entrepreneurship. “the challenge has clearly set the standard for high-intensity and high-impact interactions between student teams and startup ventures, and the analysis provided by these outstanding mba students has proven to be immediately and immensely impactful to the participating companies.”

In the end, team Kappa 6 who carried out an analysis of Moto Cinch, LLC earned first place at the 2020 MBA Venture Challenge. Company applications for the 2021 MBA Venture Challenge will begin circulating in November 2020. Individuals interested in judging at future MBA Venture Challenges are encouraged to join the McFerrin Center Mentor Network.

10一500红包扫雷7个包技巧analytics gurus and industry leaders highlighted real-world uses of analytics to strengthen cybersecurity operations and counter threats during the texas a&m analytics forum hosted by mays business school at the citycentre houston campus. attendees represented a wide cast of industries including non-profits; oil, gas, and energy; telecommunications; and retail to name a few.

Two individuals stand behind a Texas A&M Analytics table10一500红包扫雷7个包技巧“Organizations that have accumulated valuable data have fallen victims of cyberattacks that have caused millions of dollars in damages. Analytics can help predict these vulnerabilities and protect companies from these threats.” said Myra Gonzalez, director of the Texas A&M Master of Science in Analytics program (MS Analytics). “The purpose of this event was to provide a venue for people in the Houston business community as well as faculty, staff, and students to get together, discuss analytics, and share best practices.”

10一500红包扫雷7个包技巧john stultz, principal solutions architect in fraud and security intelligence at sas institute was the first keynote speaker. he shared that data preparation is 80% of the effort in fraud detection, much like in other types of analytics work. he also shared how organizations can consider derived measures for cyber risk, as well as use cases in which machine learning can assist to fight vendor, supplier, and procurement fraud.

the amount of content to share was so vast that mays had a second keynote from paul brager, author, speaker, and researcher in cyber. he explained how organizations can leverage cyber analytics to protect critical infrastructures. brager’s talk also highlighted that cyber analytics is not new, adversaries have become increasingly more dangerous, and the need for analytics is essential to fight cyber terrorism, cyber espionage, and cyber sabotage.

A Venn Diagram on a screen with the middle labeled Data ScienceSeveral presentations were conducted by MS Analytics former students. Pablo Ormachea ’16 currently serves as VP of Data Science for a lending company in the D.C. area, and urged data scientists to “refit10一500红包扫雷7个包技巧” and constantly re-deploy models to stay ahead of the game.

Presentation with Critical Infrastructures listedParticipants also gained insight into how businesses can benefit from training in statistical methods used in analytical decision-making, common obstacles to big data and analytics, and how companies might build an analytics culture. Participants were able to see a demonstration of how open source programs can be incorporated with SAS tools.

“we’re happy to foster discussion about the challenges that companies face and share ideas to stay ahead of the game,” said gonzalez. “we can’t wait for next year’s event!”

Mays Business School student LeAnn Percivill ’20, from Riesel, TX, was named the recipient of the Next Generation Scholarship10一500红包扫雷7个包技巧 at the on January 12, 2020, in New York City.

“i never envisioned winning the nrf next generation scholarship. the second the recipient was announced and then i heard ‘from texas a&m…’ – it truly felt like a movie,” said percivill.

“coming from a small town and deciding to pursue business as a career, i was concerned if my value of people and authentic empathy would be reciprocated in the industry i chose. when i discovered retail, i found so many influential industry leaders that had the same values and assured me that i was in the right place. through nrf, i’ve learned that you have the power to truly make a difference for your community, the people you serve, the environment, and the company you work for.”

The $25,000 Next Generation Scholarship was created to prepare students for a career in retail and highlight the next generation of industry leaders and is considered the top achievement for undergraduates in retail.

over 35 nrf foundation member institutions participated in the competition. percivill was one of five finalists selected from across the country and became the first student from texas a&m university to receive this honor. finalists from texas a&m in past years have included: allie miller ‘14, grace dusek ‘16, and manu garikipati ‘20. semi-finalists included tess williamson ’17 and alyssa mckinzie ’17. faith knox ’20, of austin, tx, also finished as a semi-finalist this year.

each finalist is chosen based on experience in the retail industry, displayed leadership capabilities, and passion for making an impact in retail. students traveled to new york city in october for final interviews with judges, and also spent time sharing their personal stories at youtube space studio.

As a Mays Business School student in the Center for Retailing Studies (CRS), Percivill is a member of the M.B. Zale Leadership Scholar program and has served this academic year as President of the Student Retailing Association. She spent summer 2019 as an intern with H-E-B10一500红包扫雷7个包技巧 at their corporate office in San Antonio, in addition to putting herself through school part-time as a student worker with CRS and Wayfair.

“i first met leann as a freshman. she visited with me in my office to learn more about crs, our program, and opportunities within the retail industry. since then, she dove in head-first, taking advantage of every opportunity made available to her,” said crs assistant director lauren osborne.

10一500红包扫雷7个包技巧“she is a leader in her classes and maintains a stellar gpa,” osborne added. “all while working and putting herself through school. the retail industry’s future is bright with leaders like leann.”

percivill will graduate in may 2020, and begin a full-time position with h-e-b as an assistant buyer for general merchandise in june.

“i was terrified to go to college and take a chance of accumulating mounds of debt in hopes that i could pay it off someday with a career i’d be proud of,” percivill explained.

10一500红包扫雷7个包技巧“i took that chance, and it led me through the doors of the center for retailing studies at texas a&m and ultimately to nrf, where i now find myself with an incredible job waiting for me with h-e-b post-graduation – and no student debt. no dream is ever too big, i am a testament to that.”

black friday and cyber monday are around the corner. so, what should we expect from this year’s holiday retail shopping season and the thanksgiving period? similar to the past few years, this year will also be a blockbuster holiday season. retail holiday sales will be a substantial chunk of the expected 2019 retail sales of $5.5 trillion. the national retail federation (nrf) predicts retail holiday sales to grow by about (3.8-4.2)% to $730 billion. e-marketer and deloitte consulting are even more optimistic, pegging expected holiday sales at $1.0 and $1.1 trillion, respectively, growing by (3.8-5.0)%. holiday e-commerce sales are anticipated to range from $144 to $149 billion (deloitte consulting). but returns will also likely be higher this year at almost 39% (tinuiti).

10一500红包扫雷7个包技巧the expected higher holiday sales this year is remarkable given that the holiday season is shorter than the past few years because of the late occurrence of thanksgiving. nevertheless, a record number of about 165 million people are expected to shop during the thanksgiving period. 114.6 million shoppers plan to shop on black friday, while 68.7 million intend to shop on cyber monday (nrf). however, the average spending per shopper will likely be $313, down from $335 last year (nrf). but more than a quarter of the shoppers are likely to spend over $500 (tinuiti). cyber monday sales will continue to outstrip black friday sales this year and may touch a record $9.5 billion.

10一500红包扫雷7个包技巧amid the expectation of this upbeat sale, the most interesting trend is how shopper habits are changing. the number of shoppers likely to start shopping in stores (47%) and online (41%) are comparable (nrf). surprisingly, brick-and-mortar stores are popular across age cohorts, including gen z. shoppers expect retailers to be omnichannel, with more than two-fifths of them planning to buy online and pick up in-stores (tinuiti).

academy, , ikea, lowe’s, nordstrom, and sam’s club remain closed on thanksgiving day. but two major retailers,  and gamestop, have reversed their course from past years and will open on thanksgiving day. these retailers may want to cash in on more people wanting to shop on thanksgiving day this year (58%) than the previous year (45%) (miq).

what items are likely to be hot during the thanksgiving weekend and how are shoppers going to get their holiday gift ideas and deals? as always, the iphone is a coveted item. nintendo switch lite, sony playstation ps4, amazon echo buds, and apple’s airpods pro and airpods will be popular. all shoppers will be on the lookout for the best gifts to buy for their loved ones. millennials are twice as likely to learn about holiday gifts from social media than baby boomers and gen x’ers (qualtrics).

10一500红包扫雷7个包技巧what are the best days for getting the best deals and on which items? the hot deals will be on the day before thanksgiving for apparel, thanksgiving day for jewelry, appliances, computers, tablets, tvs, and sporting goods, black friday for x-mas décor, devices, kitchen items, and other expensive items, cyber monday for gadgets and toys, and giving tuesday for furniture and bedding.

10一500红包扫雷7个包技巧the thanksgiving shopping experience is becoming almost a weeklong affair. there is something exciting for everyone every day. whether you are a touch-and-feel consumer at a physical store, a desktop clicker, a mobile shopper, or an omnichannel buyer, you have plenty of choices. if you are a retailer, there are ample opportunities to gain through omnichannel retailing. if you are an analyst and researcher like me, it is fun monitoring, analyzing and predicting shopping behavior and sales.

SKYPaws, LLC, founded by Stephanie Young ’21 and Brianna Armstrong ’20, was awarded first place and $3,000 at the 2019 Raymond Ideas Challenge10一500红包扫雷7个包技巧. The idea behind SKYPaws came to Young while she was working at a Veterinary Clinic in her hometown. “We had a dog named Charlie that came in for a routine procedure and passed away shortly after due to improper monitoring. The entire mission of SKYPaws is to equip Veterinarians with the accurate information that they need to know about their patients when they need it most” said Young.

10一500红包扫雷7个包技巧veterinary clinics must visually monitor patients post-operatively as animals will often chew through wires and tubing, or remove other monitoring devices. unfortunately, this means that veterinarians and their staff don’t receive accurate information regarding a patient’s blood pressure, heart rate, and other vital signs that typically alert physicians of critical issues during recovery. skypaws provides veterinary clinics with a wireless monitor that provides them with accurate, real-time data to better monitor patient recovery. “right now, skypaws is in the process of working with a professional engineering firm. this prize money will allow us to continue our discussions with them until we get angel investment in the next 4-6 months” stated young. young encourages students who are interested in entrepreneurship to “take the plunge” and get involved with campus resources such as mcferrin center, startup aggieland or aggies invent. “these resources will gradually allow you to get your feet wet in a structured way, so you don’t feel lost or helpless! entrepreneurship is a major portion of my life and i feel as if my college experience would be lackluster without it” she added. young is a sophomore animal sciences major and armstrong is a 4th-year student in the doctorate of veterinary medicine professional program. skypaws is a client of the startup aggieland business incubator.

Over 130 industry professionals judged this year’s 40 finalists. Recent Texas A&M graduate Rhett Bruck competed as a finalist at the 2018 Raymond Ideas Challenge and returned in 2019 as a judge. When asked why he decided to serve as a judge he commented on the impact that McFerrin Center programs had during his time at Texas A&M and his desire to help aspiring student entrepreneurs. “I thought it would be fun and I wanted to give back,” said Bruck “Startup Aggieland and the McFerrin Center put me on this amazing track where I can use the skills I developed everywhere.” The 2019 Raymond Ideas Challenge awarded $10,000 in prize money to student entrepreneurs at Texas A&M University. Second place winner Luke Raglin of SimpleSeat is the first Texas A&M Corpus Christi student to place at a Raymond Ideas Challenge. In addition, Axle Box Innovations has awarded all 40 finalists with access to their brand new “Fab Lab” that will open in January 2020. Raymond Ideas Challenge is held annually each fall semester.

venky shankar, coleman chair professor in marketing and director of research, center for retail studies (crs), was recently invited as a thought leader at the thought leadership conference hosted by the university of arkansas at fayetteville. he worked with an expert team of academics and practitioners and made a presentation entitled “how technology is changing retail.”

10一500红包扫雷7个包技巧the presentation started with a typology, or classification, of technologies that are impacting retailing.  shankar presented different theoretical frameworks for a better understanding of the role of technology in retail. he covered technology adoption by shoppers and retailers, and presented some interesting future scenarios and concluded with research questions for scholars to pursue.

shankar covered a gamut of technologies starting with 5g telecommunication, augmented reality (ar), virtual reality (vr), mixed reality (mr), internet of things (iot), blockchain, drones, robots, and 3d printing with many powered by artificial intelligence (ai), and how they are changing shopper experience and retailer business model. he discussed different organizations of technologies by stakeholder type (customer-facing, employee-facing, and supplier-facing), information technology (it) versus non-it, incremental versus radical, facilitating versus disruptive, and commoditizing versus value-adding. among the drivers of retail technology adoption, his team identified advancement in core technology, consumer push, competitor innovation, and regulation as the main factors. his presentation highlighted customer and partner adoption, customer outcomes (e.g., satisfaction, purchase), supplier outcomes (e.g., on-time delivery) and financial outcomes (e.g., revenues, profits, shareholder value) as the key consequences of retail technology adoption.

from a retailer standpoint, shankar discussed the “what, when and how” of technology adoption, management of technologies, and strategic versus tactical elements of technology. he presented different theories, including innovation adoption, technology acceptance, technology management, and option value theories.

perhaps the most exciting part of the presentation was the articulation of possible future scenarios. shankar presented his team’s ideas under four areas: retailer disintermediation, hybrid bundles, sharing economy, and retailer types. he speculated a scenario in which all consumables such as laundry for washers are replenished by ai in the machines directly ordering with the manufacturer and retailer becoming more of a repair agent—a possibility being tested by proctor and gamble. another scenario he depicted involved consumers sharing or renting almost everything including, housing, clothing, and transportation. he discussed the near future possibility of, in addition to pervasive omnichannel retailing, smaller format stores for quick replenishment and instant gratification, stores that exclusively demonstrate new products, pop-up stores, repair stores, large experience stores, and community retail outlets, will start to dominate the landscape.

An article based on his presentation is being prepared and will be featured in a forthcoming special issue of the Journal of Retailing.

College Station, TX – November 18, 2019 – The Executive MBA program (EMBA) at Texas A&M University’s Mays Business School was recognized as the #1 program in Texas, #5 program among public universities in the U.S. and #14 program nationwide according to the 2019 rankings released today by Financial Times.  In international standing, the Mays EMBA rose 19 positions to 77, up from 96th place in last years’ rankings.

10一500红包扫雷7个包技巧eli jones, dean of mays business school, said he is extremely pleased the program has entered the top 15 in the u.s. “this is a well-deserved accomplishment for this program,” he said. “julie orzabal, arvind mahajan, and the entire graduate programs staff deliver a transformational education to our executives. as lifelong learners themselves, they enhance the experience for the executives we serve.”

Mays performed well in the 2019 Financial Times rankings in other areas, too. Based on research productivity in the top business journals, Mays faculty ranked #5 among U.S. public schools and #12 among U.S. overall schools.
