  • New View On MBA Admissions At Tippie
    (Poets & Quants, 11/11/2015)

    The applicants who sit in front of University of Iowa Tippie College of Business’s new MBA admissions director have little idea that his assessment of them is based, in part, on the scenes of suffering and deprivation he witnessed in a far off land. To be clear, those were not scenes from Paul Pinckley’s nearly 11 years as executive director of student recruitment at Pepperdine University’s Graziadio School of Business & Management, which overlooks the sea in star-studded Malibu – but in those years he saw a lot of would-be business students come through his office doors. It was the three years directly previous to his start at Tippie that changed the way Pinckley looks at B-school applicants.

  • Bringing Foundational Research in from the Cold
    (Social Science Space, 10/20/2015)

    Like a favorite quote that turns out not to have passed the lips of Churchill or Twain, foundational research often is honored as its interpreters see it and not as the original author presented it. That’s one premise of a new paper from the journal Human Relations that examines how secondary research, in this case on Kurt Lewin’s change management theory, has frozen out Lewin’s original insights (which appeared in the first paper in the then-new journal Human Relations in 1947, the same year Lewin would die of a heart attack).
