Inspired by Design – 05/03/10
From the article: Although mired in uncertainty just a few years ago, a rejuvenated New Orleans has provided a more supportive platform for business-building than Hardy could have ever imagined. Just recently, Hardy was chosen as one of seven entrepreneurs to partner with an MBA team in New Orleans Entrepreneur Week 2010, when over 150 top MBA students, corporate volunteers, and our nation's most accomplished entrepreneurial talent congregated and collaborated in New Orleans to provide 9,121 hours of direct service to 329 early-stage New Orleans entrepreneurs and to discuss the emerging entrepreneurial opportunities in the community. In addition to shining a spotlight on Hardy's efforts and success, the event outfitted her company with a team of top MBA students from Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management. "We placed our previous work experience and classroom learning into action in order to develop recommendations across all aspects of Cecile's business: operations, Marketing, Sales, Product Management, Finance, and Strategic Development," says Jessica Ford, a Kellogg team member. "It was a unique experience to work with a business that is at a critical inflection point and be able to evaluate it holistically."

Continental, United airlines announce merger – 05/03/10
From the article: United and Continental Airlines said Monday they're forming the world's largest airline in a deal worth about $3 billion. The new airline would jump past Delta Air Lines in size and have flights reaching from Shanghai to South America. That should lure more business travelers, who pay higher fares. The United name will live on, although the planes will have Continental colors and logo. Some analysts warn that mergers like this could lead to higher fares. "You'll get higher prices as a result of consolidation, plus a lower propensity to innovate," says Aaron Gellman, who teaches at Northwestern University's Transportation Center. "Concentration in any industry always leads to higher prices."

State must move carefully if it boycotts Arizona – 05/01/10
From the article: What overall financial impact a California boycott of contracts with Arizona's government or businesses would have is unclear, as the tactic is almost never used by governments, said Brayden King, assistant professor of management and organizations at Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management. "It's very unusual for a government entity to get involved on that level," King said, adding that it is uncommon for "a state to be in an activist role." King has studied the impacts of boycotts and said they are most effective when they receive significant media attention, as calls for a boycott of Arizona from around the nation have.
