Business / Re: What Does Harvard Teach Nigerians About Business? by husseinjnr: 2:05pm On Feb 26, 2017
You forgot the Cold Call.... wink


1. The Case Method
As you’ve probably heard, the case method is the foundation for the HBS curriculum. The case method makes for a highly engaging and enriching learning experience. At HBS, you don’t sit back in class and listen to a professor lecture. Each class, you read a case about a protagonist and a decision that he/she is facing. You’re put into the shoes of the protagonist and forced to make a decision on what he/she should do, often without all the information that you’d like to have. The case method is truly unique to the HBS experience. It helps prepare you to be a general manager, where you have to make tough decisions.

2. The Section Experience
The first year section experience is a unique part of life at HBS. At the start of your first year, you’re assigned to a section of 90 students. Your sectionmates come from an incredible variety of geographies, industries, functions, and backgrounds. You take all of your first year classes together and socialize outside of class. The case method pairs beautifully with the section experience as you learn from the diverse perspectives and experiences of your section mates.
This becomes very apparent during the Business, Government, and the International Economy (BGIE) course first year. The cases focused on different countries, and while you have the professor to guide the discussion, you also have section mates from virtually every country you examine to provide their perspectives as well. That said, the section experience is more than just about learning from each other. You form deep connections with your section mates, and your section becomes your cheerleader and support network.

3. The Core Curriculum
Your first year at HBS you take all required courses with your section, while your second year you take all elective courses with students from across the class. Although you have to wait until your second year to select your own classes, the core curriculum has a number of benefits. To start, it ensures that everyone develops the foundational skills critical for business. Additionally, you’re introduced to classes and career paths that you might find interesting but that you otherwise wouldn’t take on your own.
Finally, the core curriculum underpins the give and take of the section experience. While someone coming from finance can help a section mate with finance and accounting, he/she might learn from a section mate who ran a team at manufacturing plant before school about leadership.

4. The FIELD Program
FIELD is another unique aspect of HBS. FIELD is a two part program during your required first year curriculum and allows you to apply what you learn in the classroom to real world situations. FIELD 1 is the foundation of the FIELD program. It focuses on developing skills around leadership and working in groups.
During FIELD 2 , students are put into teams and work with a company in an emerging market on a business problem. FIELD 2 culminates with students going in country for a little over a week. FIELD 2 allows you to gain an international perspective and an understanding of business in emerging markets. The FIELD program is a great addition to the case method because it gives you the opportunity to practice the business skills you learn about in class, and it’s a great test in leadership and working in teams.

5. The Large Size
HBS is one of the largest business schools in the world, and this comes with a number of opportunities. The large student body allows you to get to know a diverse group of classmates from all over the world during your time on campus. Additionally, there are student clubs and elective courses to cater to a variety of interests. Furthermore, the global HBS network is a tremendous resource.

Education / Re: Academic Paper Critique by husseinjnr: 7:12pm On Dec 27, 2016
An academic critique will be one of your first tasks as a doctoral student.

It is carefully graded and will determine how smooth your journey will be.

Now ...

How to write a critique
Before you start writing, it is important to have a thorough understanding of the work that will be critiqued.
Study the work under discussion.
Make notes on key parts of the work.
Develop an understanding of the main argument or purpose being expressed in the work.
Consider how the work relates to a broader issue or context.
There are a variety of ways to structure a critique. You should always check your unit materials or blackboard site for guidance from your lecturer. The following template, which showcases the main features of a critique, is provided as one example.

Why do we write critiques?

Writing a critique on a work helps us to develop:
A knowledge of the work’s subject area or related works.
An understanding of the work’s purpose, intended audience, development of argument, structure of evidence or creative style.
A recognition of the strengths and weaknesses of the work.

Education / Re: Academic Paper Critique by husseinjnr: 7:06pm On Dec 27, 2016
What is a critique?
A critique is a genre of academic writing that briefly summarises and critically evaluates a work or concept. Critiques can be used to carefully analyse a variety of works such as:
Creative works – novels, exhibits, film, images, poetry
Research – monographs, journal articles, systematic reviews, theories
Media – news reports, feature articles
Like an essay, a critique uses a formal, academic writing style and has a clear structure, that is, an introduction, body and conclusion. However, the body of a critique includes a summary of the work and a detailed evaluation. The purpose of an evaluation is to gauge the usefulness or impact of a work in a particular field.

Travel / Re: Ghana Cedi Vs Nigeria Naira by husseinjnr: 12:41pm On Apr 12, 2015
Yes, that is the exchange rate in nominal value. However, you will be doomed to think that GHS is much more valuable than the Naira.

In terms of purchasing power Naira is almost 3 times stronger than that Cedis. 1000 Naira can do a lot, but 19cedis is just too little to do anything.

Please, note that the GHS vs NGN can be described as " the more you look the less you see"

Check this out.

In fact, this video exposed a whole lot to me. I can now connect the dots in your comments when you showed your reservation about representing Dominican ladies as big booty black women. Can you just explain why your country despise the black race. What is your problem with being black? Are you guys really mentally stable?? Am so short of words. And please don't start the media propaganda story here. Tell me why that dude will not be given an opportunity to get an international passport because he is black. What a shame .

@yodanyrd , can you please do a "Dominican Republic in a week " tour guide for us. This is to help intending tourists.

I will appreciate something like the London in 7 days below. Please I will appreciate clarification on places to go and places not to go (Talking of security concerns).

Day 3: 9:00 — Follow the self-guided City Walk from Trafalgar Square to London Bridge, inserting the full St. Paul’s Tour in the middle; 15:00 — Follow the self-guided Bankside Walk along the South Bank of the Thames, then walk the Jubilee Promenade from the Millennium Bridge to the London Eye. Cap the day with South Bank sights or experiences open in the evening: a ride on the London Eye, a Shakespearean play at Shakespeare’s Globe (19:30 in summer), or the Tate Modern (open Fri and Sat until 22:00).

Day 4: 10:00 — Tour the British Museum; 14:00 — Take the self-guided West End Walk to see Covent Garden, Soho, and the Regent Street shops; 17:30 — Enjoy an afternoon tea (at Fortnum & Mason or at The Wolseley).

Day 5: Spend the morning at an antique market. Spend the rest of your day at your choice of major sights. Depending on your interests, choose from the British Library, Tate Britain, Museum of London, Imperial War Museum, or Kew Gardens (cruise to Kew, return to London by Tube).

Day 6: 10:00 — Cruise from Westminster to Greenwich; 11:00 — Tour salty sights of Greenwich; 14:30 — Ride the DLR train to Pudding Hill Lane to see the Olympics 2012 site; 16:00 — Ride the DLR to the Docklands for a look at London’s emerging “Manhattan”; 18:00 — Tube back to London.

Unfortunately, as there is no grant or supporting scheme in Nigeria, only the comfortable ones attain to this level, a poor person can not get there no matter how educationally smart s/he is or how much desire s/he has
This is not true Vic, from personal experience, in as much as i spent a fortune doing my Masters, my PHD journey is based on availability of scholarships. A search on PHD positions will reveal to you that there are lot of funding out there. Note that most German universities have very low tuition. The Scandinavians Universities are also of low tuition.

Dear online sources, please note that at this level, there is a lot of attention paid to diligence. The required research is not a watery drag and drop dustbin exercise. Therefore your services is not required. Also, why are you trying to promote academic dishonesty? Are you aware this is criminal. I have seen a lot of people disgraced because of academic dishonesty.

Education / Re: What Is The Total Weights Of The Animals In This Picture? by husseinjnr: 12:31pm On Feb 13, 2015
Let A= Rabbit
B= Cat
C = dog

From Figure above, in simple analysis

A + B = 10kg -----------equation 1

A + C = 20kg -----------equation 2

B + C = 24 kg ---------- equation 3

From equation 2,
A= 20- C

From equation 3

B= 24- C

Substitute A and B into equation 1

20-C + 24-C =10

44-2C = 10

-2C= 10-44

-2C = -34

C= 34/2

C= 17

Substitute C into equation 2

A+ 17 = 20
A= 3

Substitute C into equation 3

B+17 = 24

B= 7


A= 3, B= 7, C= 17

Total weight is 3+7+17 = 27

Rabbit= 3kg

Cat = 7kg

Dog = 17kg

Travel / Re: Traveling To Ghana For Holiday by husseinjnr: 6:15pm On Jan 09, 2015
You will be Safe. You can do aero, arik, Africa world airline, Medview. All are pretty cool.

The flight should cost between 22k and 30k per trip depending on when you book. So budget like 120k for flight for you and your spouse. You may be lucky and get some savings from the flight budget depending on when you book

As per hotel, you can do Labadi beach resort , Ramada Beach resort, La Palm beach resort.

They should cost between 85 dollars to 350 dollars per night. So the choice is yours to select.

If you don’t mind being away from the beach hotel, you should be able to get hotel for like 6k or 7 k in areas like Osu or Asylum down.

Enjoy your honeymoon.

Now this is where one belongs. An introduction, however:

I am an academic, a lecturer in one of the Northern Universities. I earned a BSc in Chemistry (UDUSok), MSc Petroleum Chemistry (UDUSok), MSc Environmental Technology, with a specialty in Landfill Engineering (Wolverhampton, UK) and PhD (in view) (UDUSok).

My PhD research area is Environmental Geochemistry. We are trying to develop a model that could/would make it possible to predict the time and extent of groundwater contamination by the natural attenuation of (landfill) leachate in the city of Sokoto.

Hopefully, we will be through by late 2015

You are welcome. Thanks for sharing your experience with us.
