Dividend (Vol. 13, No. 2, Winter, 1982)
Table of Contents: Seeing With the Inner Eye p. 4 - Monte Nagler, MBA '63, started taking pictures 10 years ago and now has a rapidly growing national reputation. In 1979, he won a three week trip to Spain as grand prize winner in the first annual Detroit News Color Photo Contest, and last summer he went on a photographing expedition to Baffin Island in the Canadian Arctic. He also owns and operates two Midas Muffler shops. This article tells more about Monte and his photography, and includes several of his special pictures. ; What's the Mission? p. 8 - How are we doing as a business school? What are our strengths, our weaknesses, our potentials? What kinds of issues should we be thinking about for the future? What kind of professional managers are we trying to turn out? We assembled six faculty members with a wide diversity of backgrounds, and asked them to discuss these questions for about two hours. An edited version of their remarks is printed here. ; Working on the Railroad by Stuart M. Reed, MBA '50 p. 15 - When Conrail was created out of the bankruptcies of six predecessor railroads in 1976, the ink on the bottom line was a vivid red. But Conrail is now showing a profit. Here its president and chief operating officer discusses the strategy for accomplishing this, including the improvement of the physical plant, improvement of customer service, cost reduction programs, improved marketing efforts, and the reaching of several historic agreements with various railroad employee unions. ; Among Ourselves p. 18 - The Business School library has a new director; George Shultz receives Business Leadership Award; Strosacker Foundation gives $100,000 for summer research; Donald C. Cook dies at 72; George Seidel receives faculty recognition award; Dow Chemical's chairman visits the School as Executive-in-Residence; Law School dedicates its library which is three stories underground; Business School Phonathon is a big success. ; Class Notes p. 25 ; About the Cover This picture by Monte Nagler, MBA '63, exemplifies a necessary ingredient in photography-patience.
