Trivia Tuesday: Entrepreneurship Offerings at Johnson

It’s time for Trivia Tuesday, our weekly exploration of the components that differentiate leading MBA programs from their peers. Today, we’re taking a look into the Clear Admit Guide to the S.C. Johnson Graduate School of Management to explore Johnson’s focus on entrepreneurship.

“Both Johnson and Cornell University itself provide a wealth of academic and experiential opportunities for MBA students interested in entrepreneurship.

“The school’s Entrepreneurship & Private Equity immersion program is designed for students who plan to start new ventures or become principals in venture capital or private equity firms.  Its foundation course provides an in-depth exploration of business plan creation, valuation and management of high-growth businesses, and leveraged buyouts, among other topics.  Students in this immersion work together as a cohort to support each other both academically and professionally; many spend the subsequent summer creating or implementing their own business plans, often collaborating with faculty and fellow students to hone their ideas and generate funding.

“With a total enrollment of over 20,000 students, Cornell University has the ability to offer a breadth of entrepreneurship resources. The university’s Entrepreneurship@Cornell Program brings these resources together in a multidisciplinary effort to foster student and alumni interaction in the fields of entrepreneurship and venture capital. In most years, Entrepreneurship@Cornell hosts over 100 events on campus, during which entrepreneurs deliver guest presentations and work directly with students on their business plans. The program also links entrepreneurship-focused clubs across Cornell, including the Johnson Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital Club; its advisory council includes numerous entrepreneurial alumni and business leaders who mentor current Cornell students and sponsor summer internships.

“Through the Entrepreneurship@Cornell Internship Program, first-year MBA students are placed in summer internships at small to mid-sized businesses across the United States and abroad, gaining real-world experience with managing a small business. Approximately 60 Cornell students take part in the internship program each year.”

To read more about the school’s entrepreneurship opportunities, as well as to obtain in-depth curriculum information, be sure to check out the Clear Admit Guide to the S.C. Johnson Graduate School of Management.  All Clear Admit School Guides are available for immediate purchase and download on the Clear Admit shop.

‘Four Houses’: Artist With Multi-Colored Hair Makes Her Own Clothes, Lives On A 1907 Ferry (VIDEO)

It was probably the most memorable home yet featured on “Four Houses” (Mon., 10 p.m. ET on TLC) as Victoria opened up her home to three other homeowners for a chance at $10,000. The premise of the show had the other homeowners touring her home and rating it in various categories while she wasn’t around.

They certainly got an eyeful, even if they didn’t get to see this quirky artist during their evaluation. Everything in her home is hand-crafted from the most eclectic of items, including her wardrobe. With her multi-colored hair and outlandish garb, fans on Twitter were calling her a clown.

To make matters even more unusual, Victoria’s home that she shares with her husband is a 1907 ferryboat. Unfortunately, despite how one-of-a-kind her decor and home are, Victoria didn’t take home the $10,000. But her style and home will surely live on in the viewer’s minds far longer than the housewife’s home who did win.

State Street: Undervalued Industry Leader But Needs To Focus On Completing $1.8B Buyback

By Saibus Research:

We previously published our investment research report series recommending State Street Corporation (STT). We were pleased to see that the company was able to show progress in reducing its cost base and believe that once the market sees less volatility, then the company will begin to enjoy top line growth. We also believe that the company is simply too cheap when we consider its valuation metrics:

  • STT’s PE of 11X trailing earnings and 10.6X estimated 2012 EPS
  • STT’s PE based on FY 2013 EPS is 9.1X
  • STT is trading at a 1% discount to book in spite of its strong ability to generate cash

We would have strongly preferred to see top line revenue growth on a linked quarter and year-over-year basis, however due to the challenging macroeconomic environment; we noticed that other firms have seen revenue come in flat or lower than expectations. We can take comfort in the

CYS Investments: 14% Dividend Yield And Continued Solid Performance

By Saibus Research:

We published our research on CYS Investments (Cypress Sharpridge Investments, Inc: CYS) after it went ex-dividend. We were surprised that the company issued a secondary public offering of stock recently due to the fact that it has a small estimated market premium to book value, especially in relationship to two of our favorite mREITs (American Mortgage Capital: MTGE, and American Mortgage Agency: AGNC).

Our firm took advantage of the 2.7% decline in CYS’s stock price on July 11th to add to our position in CYS’s common stock. We believe that the market received this offering as well as we did because not only did CYS increase it from 30M to 40M, CYS’s stock price recovered to the July 10th pre-secondary closing price of $14.14 on July 17th. CYS’s stock price dealt with volatility when AGNC issued a secondary offering of its own, but has only shed $.02 net from the
