case study with Professors from IESE

I can say that the partners club in IESE is very cooperative and innovative. These days they have organised the case sessions. They give us the MBA cases with some problems and in the class we discuss it and share our different perspectives. We are having the case sessions with the professors who are teaching our partners in exactly the same scenario as they do in their class. It really helps us to know how our husbands are dealing with so many cases everyday. Really cool!!!!!

On this note, last Tuesday I signed up for a case session which I later realized that it was in Spanish. But as at the last minute I didn't feel good to skip, so I went for that. The case itself was in the Spanish and the professor was also discussing in Spanish. So instead of discussing the case I was just trying to figure out some spanish words which I thought I knew. Finally I could say "Yes the case was very interesting!! You know why ? I learned some new Spanish words!!hahaha

Today we had a case called "Promotion And The Dual-career Couple". It was a case about a couple where the husband got promotion and wanted to shift to other country. At the same time the wife had her own settled career life at the place they were living. Now they had to decide whether to shift to the new place (for husband) or live in the same place (for wife). Well ! It was interesting to know different ideas from different people. At the least it was nicer to meet friends after long time.

Hey all! By the way, I need your help. I am doing a research in "Patents" related to "cars". If you know or have any idea of the database about patents please please let me know. That will be a great help for me.

    For patents issued in the US, you can check the US Patents and Trademark Office site and search there. It allows you to search by different fields. For example, if you search for "automobile" [TITLE] AND "ford" [ASSIGNEE NAME] it will display all patents awarded to "Ford" including the word "automobile" in the title.

    Good Luck!
