Sauder Who?

November 4th, 2005

So today I went to the Deutsche Bank presentation at the Tsinghua School of Economics and Management. Russell a classmate from UCLA: Andersen was promoting it. He introduced us to the head of recruiting for Asia. Dave was introduced and he said he was from Pepperdine. The guy nods. I introduce myself and say I’m from Sauder.

The guy says “Where?”

I say “UBC”.

He says “Where?”

I say “Vancouver”.

He says “I know Vancouver”.

I had just done my presentation yesterday to all the Tsinghua students thinking about going on exchange. It was well recieved. In fact the Wolfs liked it as did several other rival presenters. I even looked up Sauder’s current rankings. I didn’t put the exact numbers in the presentation but Sauder is ranked by or at least considered by:

  • The Financial Times
  • The Economist
  • Business Week
  • Forbes

I don’t know if the guy doesn’t read any of those rankings or if he doesn’t read past the top 10. Most people I meet are very familiar with UBC such as Hyemi who’s brother is going there. I guess Sauder needs to do even more marketing.

My blog should litter both the blogosphere and the world wide web with Sauder references. Though the powers that be, might not be so happy when they figure that out. nyway here are two fairly prominant Sauder alumni:

Pedro Man
President of Starbucks Asia Pacific

Martin Glynn
President and CEO of HSBC Bank USA

2024 Update

In 2024, I once again am updating old blog posts in order to improve the Quality. I’m also redoing my taxonomy again but I don’t expect neither to have a large ROI. I’ve deleted many posts and edited many more but still I never managed to blog my way to a better career let alone fame and fortune. I don’t expect this to change in 2024. But given everything that happened perhaps I should have considered more graduate schools and exchange options.

If you have thoughts on the Sauder School of Business and MBA rankings you can leave a comment below on this almost twenty year old blog post.
